    Came off my 7-year-old daughter's battery-powered scooter at about 20km/h. I wasn't wearing a helmet
    Just proves what I have said before . . . 100 metres or 100 kms its just as bad!!! Hope you are all mended now.
    Don't take life so seriously . . . . you'll never get out of it alive!

    I really need to question what you want to show these kids??

    While the really gruesome pics tell a story, in most of these instances ie bike head on, crashing into a truck etc ATGATT would not have saved the rider at all!!

    I think the pics of the roasties, guy with open faced helmet etc are more of what should be shown.

    You don't want to frighten the kids off motorcycle riding, but want to warn them what could happen should they fall and are not wearing the right clothing.

    Now im negative because majority of those pics have very little to do with protective gear :roll: I am concerned that by showing those and then claiming ATGATT you MIGHT give kids false hope that they can now speed and be reckless since ATGATT will save them

    Noble idea...good concept and best of luck. Please just tell the little brats that ATGATT only limits the damage.

    Ok will now leave your thread alone.

    Cheers

    the nasty pics will show kids not to drive recklessly and the more of a fright they get the better and the roasties will show why you should wear gear. If you just show them ****y images then they won't fear biking in the least!! I almost lost my leg AND LIFE cause i was wearing jeans but my upper body was fine besides a few broken bones due to the fact that i was wearing leather and gloves and a very good helmet. So the more gruesome the better, if the kids are truly passionate about bikes nothing will stop them riding but at least we can weed out the 1's who want a bike cause it's "cool" or "cheaper"... The more shocking and explicit the better i say. FIXED

    mprins - I don't see your photo submissions, nor do I see you putting your hand up and saying "What can I do to assist?"

    Thanks for the help boet !

    You **** off !!! Go impress your girlfriends with your tough talk not me!!
    I never said we should not show them images...said lets show the ones where gear would have made a difference. Some of those accidents and lots others which i have seen ...NOTHING would have helped...I remember the one of the guy that fell at over 200...with arai helmet, boots and what looked liked Alpinestar leathers...he did not even hit anything and was in several pieces...point is use stuff that they can relate to ....like no gloves short pants or jeans and what that looks like at 40kmh....Think Tony posted those ones of womans hand that fell off at low speed a couple months back.

    Been there done that.. Had all my kit on BUT was luck not the kit that saved my life....if i hit hilux head on I would have been ****ED despite wearing 3 cows worth of leather.

    Some of us are TRYING to give constructive input but since you Godlike creatures obviously have everything under control please go ahead..since you handfull obviously represent the views of the entire world and can do without us.

    I dont need to put my hand up since YOU obviously have everything covered.

    Get your facts right about me and my involvement before you make snotty comments.

    It really hurts to see good intentions being shot down so often...
    Generalising, but usually by those who don't make a concerted EFFORT - yes it is an EFFORT - to support this campaign with NO PERSONAL GAIN in mind.
    It's a pointless exercise to start debating individuals involvement - that makes it personal...
    But the point here - albeit over-eagerly expressed - is that the efforts of a few individuals (which are now seen as 'God like' ?????) are being put in such a negative light !

    Why bother ?
    Yes, there are a handful of individuals who DO get involved... but they (we) DEFINATELLY don't have it covered - which is why the committee have started various threads and are BEGGING for support.
    Why is it that so many people can sit on this forum talking **** in the pub/ workshop etc. all day long, but when you go to the THINK BIKE sections, there is so little activity ???

    Please get involved ???

    Crash,

    No need to be negative dude.....you are doing good work and we habe acknowledged that on more than one occasion. Please read where we said thanks to you bucc skinny one and strawbs for the great work with meeting Arrive Alive.

    What ****es me off is that when other members ( not active committe members ) try and give constructive input it is perceived as criticism and we are flamed. If you dont agree with our input just say so.

    About me getting involved on ground level - I have been involved with TB on ground level since BEFORE you knew about TB. Left for Personal reasons. Ask Bucc as im not posting it here to avoid threats of being banned again.

    Keep up your good work oh Godlike one!! ;)

    mprins is giving CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, he is not bashing the idea

    It amazes me that some people cannot take any criticism at all, the solution? Start the personal attacks

    You rock

    Knock, knock - Excuse me....I don't want to get involved in your personal debates but do you think you could take this off line or somewhere else......

    Now can we see the pics ?
    I don't have any but my daugther needs to sit up and smell the roses when she gets on her bike and it's too HOT!
    Fright pics and tactics are going to be used here.

    You know If Mprins posted the letter "Z" ppl will attack him...
    You know why??? Cause he is right...

    I read this thread and actually agreed about what he said, now I dont normally post unless I have a very good reason, or I feel that I can contribute to the forum...

    Now if you showed those graphic images of dead ppl to High school students (im asuming they are your target" It could really damage those kids mentally...
    Some ppl really can not deal with really graphic images, or death. For instance my boss, he cant even play violent video games, he has a photographic memory and he says things like that and scary or violent movies haunt him in his sleep...

    What if someones father died in a horrific motorcycle accident and here you arrive with pictures of mangled bodies WTF...

    So keep it to people that have survied and like Mprins said show pictures of what ATGATT could have prevented.
