i see it never changes round here. Mention wearing helmets or not and it 'kicks' off Wear one if you want. Just don't tell me to.
Wow, never thought we would agree on anything, but it would appear we do!
Thanks for the tea and caffeine info! I was actually referring to the ranting of a tea loving forum member.
For the record. I don't like them. I have just purchased a new one. It is at least ten times better to wear than the one it replaced. I will be sure to wear it off road and I suppose retro road rides (official ones anyway.)
I have ridden with people who wear a helmet even if their bike is on the roof of the car, (I have my bike with me out of the house so I'll wear my helmet), and I really noticed a "Batfink's wings" mentality.
I wouldn't have gone around a blind corner on the wrong side of the road whatever protection I was wearing.
My final word on the thread is this. To the chap who called my a cock further up this page. I could take a blow to the head and I would still know the difference between "your" and "you're."
Today's mood... Middling, middling to poor.
