Helmet Reminder

9 posts in this topic

Just a reminder to make sure you wear those helmets.

My 8 year old son was looking backwards yesterday and ran his wheeler smack dab into a parked van. He never looked forward until he had already hit it. I saw the whole thing and was screaming at him but he could not hear me.

Thankfully he is OK. He has a few bumps and bruises but over-all is fine. I can tell you though that the helmet he was wearing saved him from some severe injuries. I am sure that he would have had head injuries as well as knocked out teeth if not for the helmet.

I figure if this post makes even one person think twice about wearing a helmet when riding then it was well worth the time. Especially kids!

Very good point! My kids wear their helmets all the time while riding, me on the other hand, maybe half the time.

Same at our house. Maybe I'll start wearing mine a little more often.

I can't expect to teach my son to wear his helmet if I don't wear one myself.

I wear one, so he;ll wear one. He even comments when he sees someone NOT wearing one! He's not impressed! smile

Just remember kids are kids. Adults do not have to wear a helmet. Nothing irritates me more than a little kid 'telling' an adult anything.

Dave, tell the little guy not to worry about it. That has happened to many people. smile

As evidenced by the increase in the average age of those involved in serious ATV accidents (50), maybe the kids should be telling more adults what to do while riding ATVs.

And yes it has happened to many people. Roofer and I know of one personally grin We know you watch the boards Dave. whistle Glad you're still riding.

I'll be sure to remind you to push the 4 wheel drive button then next time. smile

Maybe I'll also have my nephew along to tell fishy that his jacket doesn't match his Sportsman.

Nice reminder. I try to wear mine at most times. If you are out with your kids it's a good idea to learn by example. Same goes with life jackets in the boat.

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...   One who comes to mind went by the handle "Mariner Magnum"...                
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
