Although I wear it a lot more than I used to, I'm hardly "religious" about it. Depends mostly on where I'm going and with whom.:helmet

This sounds really bad but I have to admitt I'll blast a couple of wheelies without the lid now and then around the neighborhood after I clean up the bike.

Just being honest.:cheers :-

Yea about 90% of the time. I don't wear it if I got the woman on back. I'm not sure why, but I think it's because I'm afraid of giving her a concusion if I do wear it.:rofl

Damn near all the time. I don't trust the idiots in my area to go on the street without it. Also, bugs are annoying. Cleaning my bike is bad enough, I don't want to find bugs and debris while I'm washing my hair in the shower. :nono

Call me chickensh*t, I get squirrely going above 10 mph without it.

i would say about 85% of the time. i always wear it on the highway and on longer rides. i also mostly always wear it when riding at night. sometimes on the short rides i won't wear it. oddly enough, when i started riding, i had my lid on 100% of the time. i could have been running to the dominicks behind my house and i'd have it on.
for the most part, i wear it.:helmet

glad i've got mine finally

took me about 2 months before i got a good jacket, and i feel safer now, even though it pulls more air & jerks me around more than just skin. that link is the exact reason why our significant others don't like us going out without gear. i've seen too many wrecks to not wear my bucket, but if i'm driving to work, i'm an idiot and won't wear it. might mess up my hair!:confused
