    :smile: I hope the news is Good, I know When I was Still in Spain I worried constantly about the Family, They say No News is Good news, I certainly Hope this is the case for you. It is just a shame that this news came on a new thread but I am sure it will highlight the Facts they we have all been Discussing. My Thoughts are with you today White Dragon, Just a small addition, My Wife lost a Nephew a little while ago when a Lorry tipped it's load of Roof Sheets on him and his GF. I guess the Authorities are Looking at safety in some urgency now. Good Luck and best wishes to you and your Family. :wink:

    the typical Dumaguete family is composed of a father, mother, children, and a motorcycle! everyone dreams of owning a motorcycle. the Dumaguetenos have been riding a motorcycle even before the motorcycle was invented AND they never wear helmets. IT is the Dumaguete way of life. this law is an intrusion into that way of life! :mad:

    if my step son was wearing a helmet his children would not be so afraid of losing there father and his wife would not be so afraid of becoming a widow at such a young age, and i believe he will survive but how long before he can speak right or even walk let alone provide for his wife and children. I do not have any extra money to help them I sent what i was going to use to buy a Jeep for when i got there now there is no jeep . and i have to postpone my trip there because i had to spend money for hospital bills . all because he did not have a helmet on . It sucks that it always takes a tragedy to make people see the safety is always best . I am not upset with David for not wearing a helmet because, yes it is a way of life there but it needs to change to stop all the suffering caused because of such a simple thing . you Look in his sad children's eyes and tell them , its ok because its a way of life that could have been Prevented

    The hard way

    you are one of the ones that always learn the hard way . why do you think Helmets are mandatory in most places on the planet ??? THEY SAVE Lives and Families the grief of having to live a life without a parent ,son or daughter. I have seen this kind of injury two times now, and it is always sooo bad . we have always talked about prevention , for example ( an apple a day keeps the doctor away ) How about ( a Helmet everyday Keeps the doctor at bay) I Hope you never have to live threw what we are going threw, but if you do you will learn THE HARD WAY.

    :confused: My wife is not happy about the fact that a Helmet is a must, her answer was " It will ruin my hair " She then complained that the cost was large, I bought her one, not cool enough, I can't afford the one I want, My Answer was better 5.000 p$ now that 50.000+ p$ for the Hospital Bill. OK let them have their idyllic ways, the intrusions into there life style are not welcome. I have told my Family the Hospital Bills are not welcome in my house for any motor bike accident where a helmet was not worn. I admire the culture and the people BUT I am surprised by all this from people who have always considered " Health is Wealth ":o

    I'll tell ya what bugs me most is seeing a family of 4 on a bike.

    a small child in front, the father driving, a baby standing in back of him and the mother in back... see it all the time.

    saw a rider once with the mother on the back holding a baby under each arm and this dipshit is on a cellphone.
