Yes, motorcycling is dangerous as are a lot of outside sporting activities and each one strives to make it safer. Skiing is a case in point; when I took it up skiing in the early sixties only downhill racers wore helmets, then little kids took them up and now just about every skier wears one.
Don't think many people complain about doing up their seat belt these days ;).
Around here even Harley riders are starting to wear full-face lids :laugh:.

Horror case in point, Michael Schumacher. Skiing with his kids probably not too hard and even wearing a helmet.
