My bro-in-law was not wearing his helmet.  He is now at Chong Hua in Cebu city.  He required surgery to remove blood clots on the brain, was in a coma for four days, and finally opened his eyes yesterday. :sad:

Sincere sympathy! I had a TBI and its a long road to recovery. It's been 11 years for me and fortunately I still only have minor issues.  I hope he progresses fully and quickly.

When I realised that I would be hiring bikes in many different parts of Philippines bought myself and gf 2 very good Spyder helmets ( Arai brand  too expensive ) .. nice tight fit and very protective for our noggins. 

Whenever  and wherever we travel they come with.

 

I hope your bro in law fully recovers, but I cant understand why people dont wear. I remember back in UK in the 70s they has TV adverts showing a tomato being hit by a hammer, stating " this is what happens if you dont wear a helmet.".

The benefits of wearing a motorbike helmet during a crash are undeniable and I always wear one.

A full face helmet is more protective than an open face but some times I wear an open face because when I was younger that's what was available and in budget so I'm used to them.

More important, in my opinion, is that some cheap helmets sold in the philippines are much less protective than good quality branded helmets.

In my opinion it's well worth paying a bit more for a branded one from a motorbike shop.


I hope your bro in law has a quick and easy recovery.
