2. I like to ride through the trees...I'm guessing my head is not going to win of I hit a tree at speed
3. Double black diamonds with exposed rocks...in the even that I bite it, I would rather not tomohawk head first into a patch of them wearing a beenie...then again, even a helmet might not save me.

My main factor for wearing though, in all honesty is because I have kiddos and I'd hate for a nasty accident to take me out of their lives.

Kiddos and concussions for me too
