But, but... that's like those of us not wearing helmets telling those of you that do are sissies for wearing them!!!
All kidding aside. I don't consider myself a fool for not wearing one, no more than I do anyone a sissy for wearing one.
Like I mentioned somewhere above, helmets can save you from some accidents but not all. I wouldn't discourage anyone from wearing on. Just don't tell 'me' I have too.
