Pat Yourself on the Back, International Helmet Awareness Day 2018

Tackbox Tales


Do you wear a helmet? Kudos.

Do you wear a helmet in a discipline where helmets are not standard protocol? Double kudos.

You are not just protecting your head.

You are protecting me, as a human being, from having to hear another horrible head-injury story.

You are protecting me, as a taxpayer/insurance client, from having to pay a share of your catastrophic hospital bill.

You are protecting the next generation of riders who see you as a role model, whether you know it or not.

Go, you!

  1. Some years ago, I was in a very nasty accident where I landed on concrete. There was a dent in my helmet. That dent would have been in my head and I would not be here writing this without that helmet.
