O.K. enough of this square tire, biker safety, moto-banter stuff.
Me and an ocean of other hawking noobs (that don't have enough balls to post here) are waiting for the next Killboy Failure pic.
So put something up.

Yeah, just sayin' like it is.
Thanks,

BS! You nor anyone else knows whether he would be alive or not if wearing a helmet.

Sometimes people die even while wearing a helmet.

The only claim that can accurately be made is he probably wouldn't have fallen off the bike if he wasn't standing on the seat with his arms outstretched as it was moving.

Actually, you could also say it would be less likely that he would have died if he had been wearing a proper helmet.

I agree that it would not be certain, but likelyhood would favor the life side more.

it looked like a well dressed kid for going on a bike as the top half is the right gear butt the bottm half it not becosue of the chaps and crappy gloves and i think its trainers . to think the time it took to put on pointless chaps you could of put on proper leather bottoms and proper gloves.
