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.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.
