if thats really your reasoning... then come back to me after smoking, drinking, and being overweight are all outlawed first... those 3 kill more and cost SIGNIFICANTLY more of a burdenI disagree. Nobody wants to see someone's splattered brains all over the pavement. Not only that but others shouldn't have to fund an insurance corporation that's paying to cover someone's lifelong brain injury when a helmet would've cut that cost drastically. Sure you could argue that a head injury sans helmet would simply result in a cheaper fatality instead of expensive rehabilitation but who's going to make that morbid argument and have the stats to back it up.
I guess nobody is gonna miss you..........Be smart and put a brain bucket on your head. Taking calculated risks is the smart way of having fun. There are plenty of ways to hurt yourself and you can't keep having fun when you are laid up in the hospital or nursing injuries. I do plenty of crazy shit at the young age of 54. Skateboarding Vert, surfing, skiing, motocross and street/canyon shredding etc. Everything except surfing is done with a helmet on my head. Remember, your head is the most important piece of the puzzle. If you have never seen nor heard a person smack their head on concrete really, really hard; it is not something that you want to experience again.no kids and never gonna have them
no wife around either, at least none of my own >
whether or not anyone misses me is not an important factor in any of my decisions... i live my life the way i enjoy and i accept the consequences.I guess nobody is gonna miss you....

You are rolling the dice either way. Not wearing a helmet is no different but that choice should be yours to make. One can easily argue that canyon shredding is a higher calculated risk when compared to going around a race track. Why do you play higher odds then? You must know that throwing a leg over a motorcycle through the same canyon is a higher calculated risk instead of going in a car (helmet or no helmet). Car has air bags and way better odds of survival so why do you "choose" to go on the motorcycle instead when a safer option is available? Why shouldn't that choice be taken away from you by the nanny state and motorcycles outlawed altogether in the name of safety. You are trying to hurt your self while canyon shredding on a motorcycle and you need to be kept safe from yourself for your sake and for the sake of your loved ones and your children and your family. I think I am going to regret opening my mouth :smile2:I do plenty of crazy shit at the young age of 54. Skateboarding Vert, surfing, skiing, motocross and street/canyon shredding etc.
bingoWhat one considers to be doing crazy shit and being stupid and irresponsible is opinion. Acceptable calculated risk is different for different people.
