Do you wear a helmet ...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
...when riding your bike? I felt so bohemian today when my friend was sort of upset with me for not wearing one on our little local ride, i see her point that there was some street riding and it's dangerous, but I just never wear one. I asked a policeman once if it's law and it's not in my area. the helmet i have makes my head sweat.

I haven't been on a bike for years but I always used to wear a helmet!

No. I have never worn a helmet.

The way that I look at it is that if a car hits me, those pathetic helments they make are not going to do any good.

A 2 ton car versus a 140lbs person on a 20lb bike?

Now, if I had to get on a hwy to ride I might would invest in a motorcycle helmet. IMO those are more durable than the bike helmets.

On a bicycle, NO.

On a motorcycle, YES.

In KY, you don't need to wear a helmet if ya don't want to. The times I've ridden with someone I wear one. I have enough brain damage, I don't need any more.

But I think I'm safe on my bicycle, I only go around my neighborhood and there's only one nut who drives really bad that I steer clear from!

I have never worn a helment when riding my bike. When I fell off my bike, and I did alot, my ankles, hands and knees got cut up the most so a helment would not of done me much good.

The only biking I do is mountain biking, so, yeah, I refuse to ride if I don't have a helmet, knee and elbow guards and good, padded biking gloves.

I've never worn one on a bicycle, but I never rode in traffic either!

On my other bike , I look more like I'm fixing to be in one of the Superbike races, rather than a cruiser chick, heh; full-face helmet, full-fingered leather and hard armor gloves, Triumph jacket with light armor, steel-toed over the ankle boots. It is the law in this state, but since I'm obviously not bending to peer pressure in what you're "supposed" to wear when riding a cruiser, I obviously value my skin enough to wear a proper helmet and clothes even if it wasn't the law!
