wear one all the time unless I'm just taking it down the road to a neighbors or something. To be honest not sure why anyone wouldn't, but that's another argument for another day. I wear a moto cross type one when its warm and a snowmobile one in the winter
Don't skimp on a helmet. Funny that people will drop a grand on a stereo but then buy a 14 dollar helmet to protect their brain. Priorities I guess.
I was 4 wheeling not far from where I live. A bunch of people there. Some lady in a wheelchair. Paraplegic. was calling me gay because I chose to wear a helmet. Wheelchair. She was in a wheelchair. My mind basically blew up. If anything. A helmet helps from getting hit with branches, sticks and rocks.
