No need for the insults.. It's not illegal to ride without a helmet. Do you just stand in the lift line scolding people for not wearing helmets? I think it's great that most people wear helmets but it's a personal choice and should remain that way. More people get ran over walking to work than hurt/killed while skiing/riding.
That's because more people walk to work more often. A per capita comparison would be more accurate.
As to the insults, when you make a statement on the forum, no-one is obligated to agree with you. I think it was a dumb statement as well. I'd probably phrase it a little better...
But yeah people know their limitations and don't need helmets just like they know their liquor capacity and don't need to take a taxi.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
