Answer the question (if you want to).



Do you wear a helmet? People say "Helmets are for geeks!"



I personally wear a helmet. Do you?

No. Most helmets loot quite dumb in fact.

No, I do not wear a helmet while riding my bike, or longboard. I've crashed two serious times on my bike and both times I came out fine. I've also crashed about five times on my longboard and the only thing I've ever broke is my watch (3 times) and gotten a few scrapes. I have a helmet a pretty expensive one too which I've only wore once since I got it when I got my bike almost two years ago. I probably would wear my helmet more if I wasn't [developmentally delayed]ed and got a mountain bike helmet instead of a road helmet like I should of :wall: . So if anyone is interested in trading a Giro road helmet for a Giro mountain helmet hit me up!

I wore one as a skateboarder, fell on my arm once & broke it. I figure if my arm is going to continue taking the impact, I won't need my helmet anymore.



So, no more helmets for me... unless i'm playing contact ice hockey with my extreme friends, I also wear a cup at those times.

Nope, if anything it constrains my vision when I wear one.

I use my pads and helmet when I'm at a skatepark where you have to, otherwise no. It's never served me though, whenever I've had a rough fall I usually fall on my back and pull up my head automatically. If there was such a thing as a (light) back helmet I'd wear it though, nothing worse than taking a bad fall 10 minutes into your session.

I only wear a helmet while riding my bike, as the last time I didn't, I was stopped by a police officer. My parents weren't exactly too happy.

Skiing, I do, biking... Depends. If its on some straight road that I know, helmet-free. If it's bumpy and theres a risk of me falling, yeah, I'll wear a helmet.

I never bike anymore, but once I hit around 16 I stopped wearing a helmet. They never helped me, anyway, since my balance on a bike had been perfect, even when making sharp turns. Nowadays, it kind of hurts to bike, so I don't bother. I don't even own a bike now, since I donated it to my uncle's yard sale. I think a young Mexican kid has it now.

Answer the question.




Whoa, easy there fellow. No need to be so intimidating. :shame:



No. Most helmets loot quite dumb in fact.




This is how I felt when I used to ride bikes and skateboards. Now I just walk.

I probably should, considering how beat up my bike is, and how high the chances of me falling and hitting my head are. but they never fit well, and they're uncomfortable, and annoying, and they look silly.

Never really owned a helmet before. I mean there was a motorcycle me and my bro found but it smelt of cat's pee pee so I wasn't about to put that on my head.

I've never worn a helmet except when learning to ride a bike. In fact, I stopped using the handle bars at around age 8 or 9 :lol:

I don't do much that would require a helmet, but when I get my motorcycle, I most definitely am. Hell, that's the most important part of safety gear. While I wouldn't want to, I wouldn't be totally against biking naked as long as I had a helmet.



But I find helmets are much more important when you're going 40 miles an hour.
