Meh, I keep thinking about getting a helmet, but I hate wearing them. I feel confined, hot, sweaty, and bulky. I wonder what's the point in spending the $150 if I'm not going to wear it everytime?
When I was in riding lessons I wore them and for awhile as a teenager/child my parents insisted on a helmet. I kind of gradually stopped wearing mine and now they sit in the dusty closet.
Spyder and Mac, I respect you, but disagree strongly on this issue.
