It only takes one car crash without a seat belt or one bike crash  
without a helmet to totally destroy or end your life. No matter how  
good a driver or biker you are you can't avoid those random scenarios.  
If you don't want to protect yourself that's fine, but to say  
seatbelts and helmets aren't necessary, based on your anecdotal  
experience, is, as i've said, absurd.
