Rod I'm so sorry for your loss.
People are afraid and they won't admit it. And when they are afraid, they look for things to blame; but what they blame has to be something that they control. The obvious blame is the driver who pulled out; but we can't control that. We can control the gear and helmets we wear; so we blame that. If we blame his novelty helmet, and hurl insults at a person we've never met, harming his family; then we can feel better about ourselves because we wear better helmets and thus won't meet the fate he met.
It's silly, and none of the people doing it will admit doing it or even realize they are doing it. But they are afraid and that's exactly why they respond like that.
Sorry for your loss; you and your family are in my prayers.
Just as an add though; when it comes to helmets size isn't everything. I'm sure your son tried everything; but for others reading; sometimes someone will put on one brand of a full face and can't find any size to fit them so they say "Well I can't wear a full face". The reality is they are all so different, as our heads are all so different. Another brand might fit. Though it does sound like your son was a unique case.
