Lead slowed down as directed, however instead of coasting he applied a bit of brake. I touched his rear wheel and in .5 second was on the ground.

.5 seconds? It usually doesn’t take that long!

Darwin was way ahead of his time!

2 summers ago, a friend and I were coming down a grade doing north of 25 mph. My buddy’s front tire slipped off the right side of the road which had a 2 inch lip. When he turned back to the left the bike went out from under him. I was riding ahead and didn’t see it but I did HEAR it. Ka-Rack. That helmet gave its life to save my buddy’s brain that day. I keep thinking without a helmet, the sound would have been the same, but his skull would not!

If anyone out there is thinking they don’t need a helmet, well I shouldn’t say, but let’s just say you’re wrong and start wearing one today. I just takes that one bad fall (even from a standstill) to do some serious brain damage.

Saw a guy go over his handlebars on Sunday at my friends race. He bent his front rim but came out o.k.
Just not sure why people don't want to wear helmets

Thats good
I got a concussion two years ago from a bike crash and am still having problems with my memory and such :?

I thought you fell last week and didn't want you to ignore it
