Post Re: How often do you wear a helmet?
There was one time that I didn't wear my helmet because I was going like 3 blocks down the street to get gas before school, and a cop pulled in behind me and told me he wouldn't write me a ticket if I parked my scoot at the gas station, walked home, and came back with my helmet. So I have always worn one since.

That was nice of the cop but, ... this would have really caused a problem ... with me !! !! ...
I would have probably walked ... just like you ...
But ...
That's not right ... he treated you like a child !! !! ... The walk was YOUR PUNISHMENT for not wearing your helmet.
So ... as you say ... you've learned your lesson ... next time ... next time ... you're going to your room !! !! ...

Could have been worse!

well I asked him if I could do that and him not give me one and he said yeah he'd let me off with a warning.

But that's aside the point >_>

All right ... I'm OK with that, now ... I didn't know that you had volunteered to "do the walk" ...
I had a problem with being treated "with a punishment" .. as a child !! !! ...

Ja, BioMed, that's the same one I have - Bellistic in black. I picked it up on closeout at a local bike store.

There are lots of options, though - SixSixOne and Giro both make flavors, and others do too, I'm pretty sure. I'll probably spring for a SixSixOne Youth when I have a mo; Youth sizes tend to fit me better. :( The Bellistic could be more snug around the lower sides of the chin.

Only when I'm riding, or for a few minutes afterwards to do battle with my kids, while I've got my full armour on.

i haven't had my scooter very long. the first day i got it i rode all night without a helmet. the next day i bought a helmet and have worn it every time i've rode since. i feel safer with the helmet, but i gotta say it was nice feeling the air.

Post Re: How often do you wear a helmet?
The one time I rode without a helmet, I got stopped because apparently people under 18 have to have a helmet in this state.

From then on I swore to always wear a helmet, even for test rides. Although I usually don't rock the full face for a test ride. Any time I go onto main streets though I wear my helmet, and gloves.

I also NEVER operate the scooter, not even down to the end of the driveway, without pants and shoes on.

Post Re: How often do you wear a helmet?
Most of the time. If I plan on going on a ride around town or out of town then I always suit up with helmet, leather jacket and leather gloves. I sometimes don't wear a helmet after I've drank a lot of beer and it's a spontaneous ride around the neighborhood. Beer make me bullet proof. :cheers:
