Argue with the fact that helmets have prevented injury or worse in low speed accidents, and are useless in high speed accident no matter what kind of bike you are riding.

In a low speed accident where my head hit the ground while wearing my helmet, I had no injury at all. Common sense, logic, and accidents in the real world trump a whole box car load of "research papers"!!!!

Ponder the fact that anyone doing "research", the research is only as good as the people doing it and who they interview. Those learned papers you put so much stock in DO NOT cover the whole spectrum of cycling accidents. They DO NOT cover accidents such as mine, since it was never reported, as are probably 99% of the accidents like mine. The helmet did it job, END OF STORY!!!!!
