Not even touching this with a 20 foot pole lol.
I think we all agree you probably SHOULD wear a helmet, but in the end it's up to you. By SnoWolf saying that he is an adult that understands the inherent risk and makes his choice regardless, it's a perfectly valid argument. Not wearing one because you think you are immune to injury, on the other hand, is really just a foolish and dangerous way to think. I do think in some way or another every decision you make can indirectly effect someone else - ie. you become a brain mushed vegetable and your family is stuck taking care of you, dealing with the grief and the expenses. That's a worst case scenario though and it kind of a moot point. I never ride without one now , simply because for me, the risks outweigh the benefits and as I've gotten older I've realized for me personally I simply can't afford to risk that type of injury
