You need the right gear to keep you safe while you’re out on the road riding your bad motor scooter, and there’s no reason you can’t express yourself with your choice.
As much as it may be a matter of choice for some and a political issue for others, it just makes good sense to wear a helmet when you ride your motorcycle.
Psychiatrists say delusions can be associated with mild traumatic brain injury as well. Personality changes can lead victims to near-schizophrenic symptoms as a result of their brain trauma. This type of injury can cause lesions to appear over time in the pre-frontal cortex of the brain, and those lesions may explain complex neurologically-related complaints from victims following a concussion. Some show signs of compulsive behavior, sensory deviations, memory loss, violence behavior and an intolerance for even small amounts of alcohol use.
Nearly all concussion cause some damage to the brain and regardless of the severity of the initial injury, a second brain injury, if it follows closely within hours or days of the first, can even be deadly. A single brain injury causes a victim to have a three-times greater risk for a second injury and that risk climbs to eight-times that the victim will suffer additional injuries.
So where am I going with all this? Glad you asked. Your most important piece of gear is, without question, your helmet. Aside from its primary function to provide protection for your brainpan, your helmet can also be a fashion statement.
There’s no shortage of styles, shapes, colors and patterns you can choose, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to find the skid lid that announces your fashion sense. Can’t find what you want off the shelf? Go at it like the people here and customize it yourself. Take up that can of truck bed liner, fuchsia spray enamel or a handful of ball-bearings and get to work.
