Re: I have a heckler (or a fan)
"Some guys hate for no reason"- "Rocky"- 1976
and unfortunately I think it is more true today-
actually I think anti- helmet people are quite ignorant- while a DOT helmet may be a bit heavy and hot, there are still other lightweight alternatives and THEY SAVE LIVES
and prevent more serious injury- I'd probably wear a DOT hard half-helmet at least- if I didn't already have some neck and back issues that are strained by a heavy helmet
but I ALWAYS where a cycling helmet when I ride the motorbike
A thick Kucharik leather helmet saved my life back in 1978 in a bike race.
Pay no attention to the goading jerk, if you can.
Or shoot him as a service to the rest of us!
