Tuck those strap adjusters tight under the earlobes. Pet hate. What's the point of wearing a bonce potty for its perceived safety benefit, then not putting it on properly?

Clearly never researched helmets but I like the style of your video. You should know I've hit my head twice in the same place when falling off my bike at the same speed . Pretty much as controlled testing as it gets. The first time I was wearing a helmet and I broke my collar bone (this is because I used my arm to break my fall, not my head). The 2nd time I wasn't wearing a helmet and i tucked my arms in, not wanting to break my collar bone, and my head broke my fall. In fact I remember my head bouncing. I'll give you one guess as to which time I suffered concussion. (clue... It wasn't the 2nd time). Sure I had an egg size lump the 2nd time but I didn't get hospitalised nor suffer dizzy spells for six months. I cannot remember anything about my first accident at all, only remember waking when the paramedics were block and boarding me. The 2nd time I got up, hobbled home with a bad hip and took the opportunity to have the morning off :smile:. Therefore, before you post about helmets may I suggest you fully educate yourself into how rigorously they are tested (or not as the case is) and how rotational head injury is caused. Just for the record I still wear a helmet coz it hides my bad hair in the morning :smile:

Isn't it an ironic protest? So many people do it that I thought it was an act of civil disobedience: "someone really wants me to wear one so technically I am but I have made it useless because it has no benefit anyway." You mean they really think it's vital but haven't bothered to follow the instructions?
