I really enjoy a good old fashioned ATGATT argument.

But seriously folks...

I own a Full-Face helmet which I usually wear, unless it is over 90dg, then I use my Shorty. Truth be told, I would much prefer no helmet at all, but I only ride around the block occasionally that way. I just can't ride without one and feel good about it - or I would.

What do you wear and why? All opinions welcome!

PS - ATGATT is great, but please don't preach. Adults are allowed to make adult decisions, like not wearing a helmet.

I've worn a modular helmet for the past few years although before that I wore a full-face one. I've become quite used to this type of helmet, although I'm sure they're noisier then the full-face ones.

Since I ride in AZ. in the fall, winter and spring, I've ridden in some pretty warm weather and up until a year ago I rode without one when it was warm out. What changed my mind was when I was stopped at a stop sign last year and my foot slipped under the bike on some loose sand. (I was on a slope and that's why it slipped in that direction.) With the momentum of the way my foot went under my bike it seems like I slammed into the pavement and my head smacked it pretty darn hard. I had absolutely no idea that something like that could happen standing still and needless to say, I haven't ridden without a helmet since.

I'm thinking about a pair of these - one for the wife... but I will NEVER buy her one without trying it on in a store again. I have two HJC helmets and one is narrow and uncomfortable..even tho it is a size bigger then the other. http://www.compacc.com/p/Gmax-GM54-Helmets-Modular-Street-Solids

The modular helmet so I can easily sip while in motion. I have also found that it's convenient buying chicken nuggets to put in the tank bag when I'm on a road trip. Then I can easily munch, drink and keep making time down the road.

He must have spilled something on the keyboard.

Congrats on the new toy. You will love that inner darkened shield.
