ALWAYS!! plus it's illegal to ride a scooter w/o one, but you can ride a moped w/o a helmet.

I guess the laws of physics are different for mopeds in the Silver State??

Hawaii has no helmet law- kids riding 600GXR's with rubber slippers surf shorts and no shirt doing wheelies down the strip. Insane but they don't know any better.

I ride with a helmet every time.

Louisiana is a REQUIRED state.
If they took the law away - - - I'd still wear a helmet.

Florida had a helmet law for years and then decided to lift it. How stupid is that. I never ride without the helmet. Only takes one time for it to be fatal. Even a test ride down the street could end badly.

I wear the lid every time I'm on two wheels. I didn't spend $400.00 on that Shoei just to have it sit on the shelf.

I like to keep my oh-so-pretty face in one piece, so I wear one always.

I can't afford to have my face look any odder than it does already. :) Fullface every time I'm on anything with two wheels.

(That includes my bicycle - I used to wear a regular bike helmet, but I always managed to fall on my chin and mess myself up rather badly when I crashed in my younger days, so I got a fullface mountain bike helmet. You can hit some pretty high speeds on the happy side of coastal CA hills...)

Hey RG ... I'm glad that you posted ... and you do know that you're outside the 'norm' ... right ?? ?? ...
I'm going to have to go a "BING" this !! I am totally unaware that there is such a thing as a 'full face mountain bike helmet'.
I never thought about it ... and I've seen 'extreme' sports on the boob.tube ... and again ... never noticed ...
Do you have any pics of your helmet(s) that you could post ?? ?? ...

One more thing ... I didn't know that there was a 'happy side' of coastal CA hills ... which side is that ?? ?? ...
The downhill -or- the side away from the beach ...

Post Re: How often do you wear a helmet?
Most "freeride" mtb riders wear these types of full faces as they are more comfortable than the fullface like "dave mirra" wears and as you are flyin down hills you knever know when that rock or tree is gonna jump out and grab ya!!
