    I wore one for many years. My dad taught me to ride and made me promise him I would always wear one. As long as he was alive I honored him by wearing one. He passed last June. Due to an illness he spent the last 35 years of his life with a good mind but a body that could do almost nothing. I don't plan on crashing but if I do my worst fear is having my head safe and a totally messed up body. I'd rather it end right then and there. Might seem like an odd way of looking at it but after seeing my dad completely miserable for 35 years it's how I see it.

    A good helmet, gloves, and safety glasses any time I leave town.

    No, a helmet clashes with my shorts, T-shirt and sandals.

    always wear 3/4 helmet although I live in pa. where helmets are not mandatory. I tried riding without one but just don't feel safe without.
