I wear a helmet. I wear it for my daughter and for my cats and for the paramedics who would be traumatized if they had to scoop up my brains. I hate the thing its very uncomfortable, all of them are. I used to wear it about 80% of the time but from this moment on I am going to wear it ALL THE TIME!
Its because of an incident yesterday. I am sure its happened to all of us. I am lucky, and I was not wearing my helmet. The bike is ok.

glad to hear the bike is ok. oh, and you, too! haha ;)
it's not because i'm worried about my AWESOME riding skillz :rolleyes:, but i worry about a teenager in the middle of a 'OMG! did you see Brittney's new purse?!' text marathon, and take her eyes off the road for a split second or twenty.

I just bought a full face helmet today online. Wife is concerned more for my safety than I am so I respect that and it might prevent me from ending up like my son.

A full face helmet saved my young pretty face many times when dirt riding in the desert.
A full face helmet saved my life or saved me from serious head injury twice while riding street M/Cs. Once was a hit 'n run.
I gotta Giro full face and a regular biking helmet, I always wear one or the other.

Non-believers Google Gary Busey head injury. ;) Now think of the heart ache of taking care of a loved one with a brain injury...not fun...betcha.

I went for a long pedal ride this AM, many minors out there had helmets on but the straps were not latched...What's that about? Is that kewl? I noticed that in TV shows/movies we see guys pull on helmets but we rarely see them lached or the strap worked through the D' rings.
