Okay, soo one of my friends wont wear a helmet or gloves or anything when he rides. Yes he does wear glasses, so he does have eye protection (like that is gonna help when he goes down) This seriously bothers me. I have tried my a$$ of to get him to realize he needs to wear a helmet. Even me telling him about when I went down and if I would not have had a helmet, vanson jacket, gloves on I probably woulda been dead or definitely in the hospital, I mean my gear allowed me to walk away from the wreck. Also, he doesnt give a shyt about what girls wear when they are on the back, I.E.-sandals, shorts, little shirt. Sorry to make this such a long post I am just trying to figure something out. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks
He sounds like the type that is too stubborn for gory pictures or stories to have any effect. So he'll need to experience the difference. To prevent him from experiencing this on a bike, hit him in the head with a hammer, then have him put on a helmet and hit him with the hammer again. Ask him which hurt worse.
Originally posted by Mongrel Racing There is nothing you can do beyond informing him. If you feel as strongly as you do than don't ride with him anymore. It is that simple. If he wants to ride with you explain that he must wear a helmet. Let him know that you will not sit with him and hold his dying body if and when he has an accident. If he chooses to ride without a helmet than he will have to do his dying by himself or with someone else. Put the responsibility back on him, and wash your hands of it.
Great post Wayne!
