I must admit.  My first inclination when I see a kid riding his bike wearing one of those goofy Lemans helmets, is to slap him upside the head.

Lived on a rough cobblestone street growing up and did handstands on my Roadmaster with what were called  'balloon' tires.

Metal monkey bars.  Hockey without helmets.

I feel the same way about snow skiing with a helmet on........ especially when you read the number of injuries occuring because everyone thinks the helmet will protect them from risky behavior on the slopes....

LOL!  If I looked like you, I wouldn't want to wear a helmet either. 




and that's meant as a compliment.
