Intimate encounter with a car at the Recent RB National. I was just the unlucky one at the time. Could have been any of us.
Full chest impact on the headlight front/corner of a new modern Discovery.
Not quite sure how no ribs were broken.
(details are irrelevant as that got nowt to do with Helmets)
Helmet means I can sit here typing it just relative discomfort. Save my life dunno, personally wouldn't like to have found out.
Saved from scars, stitches, headaches, sharp point impacts... Yes.
Dull thud to the head, concussion. Possibly.
and like I say, it provided a nice comfy pillow for a while.
did it increase the pain in my neck, maybe, maybe not but they don't matter as much.
But then I have pain all over my chest, bottom ... also
Anyway, stuff happens and thats the point. Why retrobike rides have their rule (not just for insurance) but they and the other riders have to deal with the mess. Let alone the Paramedics, Doctor, Nurses locals....
