The following is an exert from Cassons website titled:


I was riding westbound on 1-20 near Weatherford, TX at what eyewitnesses later said was about 140mph ... when the accident happened. ... I took out a street sign with my Arai helmeted head and also took out a guard rail which indicates the force of the impact.

...There was no injury to my head or brain thanks to my Arai helmet.

I was a paramedic for six years and attended too many crashed motorcyclists and had seen first hand the difference a quality helmet can make in the after accident outcome.

Perhaps wearing a full face helmet was a wise choice here.
