I just am at a loss here...if someone chooses to wear a helmet in a sxs, by all means! It’s probably not a bad idea. But when I’m strapped in my harnesses in the sxs, I’m pretty well protected. Most sxs injuries occur because people aren’t strapped in and get between the cage and the object they hit, be that ground, rock, tree. What kills me is by law you don’t have to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle but you have to wear a seat belt in a car. If we want to talk statistics, you’re far more likely to be involved in a severe accident in your car than your sxs. So why aren’t folks wearing helmets in their cars? Again, to each is own. And if you choose to wear a helmet or not. By all means. I don’t give a s*** one way or another. It’s been said time and time again about using sense. That’s the key to all of it! s*** happens sometimes and that’s unavoidable to an extent. But when it comes to kids it’s our job as parents to protect them. That doesn’t always mean wrapping them up like they’re being shipped usps because you know they’re going to get broke if you don’t. I keep life jackets on the kids when they’re in the boat and moving. And I put the little one in a car seat. When in the car or sxs if we’re actually “riding”. Now if I didn’t have them properly restrained a helmet would be a greater need. But they are. So it’s not. And furthermore, I’m not doing the same riding with the kids as I do by myself. That doesn’t mean that freak things can’t happen. But the reality is, if you’re situationally aware the chances of bad things happening are reduced. I carry a gun and I’m aware of my surroundings. And so far, I’ve never had to use it. But that’s hugely because I’m aware of my surroundings. When you go looking for trouble you’re far more likely to find it. Same goes with riding a sxs, driving a car or raw dogging a bar fly. Use your head and minimize your risk. If you can’t use your head then by all means use more protective equipment. That’s why the Arabs invented condoms. But it was the English that decided to remove them from the sheep before use. They were situationally aware!
When I get home I’m taking a swazall and making a convertible.
Need some weight reduction so I’m going to remove the seatbelts and harnesses as well.
Don’t tell me I’m wrong I’ve seen it on YouTube.
