    Where is the option for 'rarely feel harassed by motorists, and don't often wear a helmet'? The available options make the presumptions that Motorists and cyclists always behave in a particular manner, when they don't. More options please.

    Why have you picked these two points to link together in your poll? What does being harassed by motorists have to do with wearing a helmet?
    I wear a helmet. I am occasionally harassed by motorists, so it's not an either or answer I'm afraid.

    What's a slack chain got to with either helmet usage or being harassed by motorists?

    Last slack chain chain I had whilst wearing a helmet, with a car being driven in a manner that was nudging me sideways.(harassing me) weighed over 6 Kg and was ready should he try a third time. He didn't for some reason!

    I don't have an edit link but have asked if we can. For now, please use "Other" for such things if you don't feel one or the other is more usual for you.

    :huh: They're often linked by people (recentish example follows) and I wanted to see how the numbers stack up.

    Attempted joke. I did consider "new bike" or putting a reference in to a certain forum poster who runs a lot of polls, but chose that one instead. :smile:
