I've rarely ridden without a helmet, so I'm hardly aware I'm wearing one. The other day, in

fact, I had been riding for about 20 minutes before I realized I wasn't wearing one. There isn't any weight to them. The only thing I don't

like about a helmet is what it does to my hair when the weather turns warm.

I have the helmet shown in Crazy Equestrian's post. It's light, adjustable and comfortable. And the price is pretty good too. Since I ride alone most of the time I feel like I should minimize my chance of injury as much as possible. Wearing a helmet is an easy way to do that.

Wow, I haven't been on HC in FOREVER, so Hi.

Helmets, I ALWAYS wear one. I personally don't like Troxels, but that's just me. I have an International. I have troxels too, but I just prefer my International.

Probably because this is the "hurricane/disaster info" board, LOL

If you want more replies/information on helmets, it might help to move this to a different board with a more general topic. [smile]
