I've never really cared much for giving the world my 2p worth of ill informed opinion/real world experience, but as I'm immobile for a while with a fractured clavicle, getting quite into 1 handed typing and have recently written my first ever starter threads I feel its time to wade in!
The point of this thread? Oh yes. Judging by the state of my left ear and the condition of my helmet I can honestly say that my skull would be in a right state had I not been wearing a helmet when being mown down and smacking onto tarmac the other day.
I shall be purchasing another and am of the opinion that anyone who goes without (esp. on road) could do well to review their contingency planning.
I thank you for your time.
