well, i wear my helmet not just because it'll probably save my life when i hit some inanimate object at 40+kph or when i high-side it swerving to miss a jay walkin flesh pylon on the street by absorbing some of the impact that would otherwise crack my skull. i wear one cos if i do fall on my noggin, i won't be sitting there for 5 mins cradling my skull in pain. i wont have to worry about ripping my scalp off my head and having to go stitch it all up again (the 'skid' part of 'skid-lid'). neither do i have to worry (too much) about concussions from medium speed collisions or wipeouts. i also can feel safe when riding down tamaki drive knowing that if i have a bottle thrown at my head by some moron in a car with his equally idiotic mates, i probably won't die instantly. Granted, a helmet doesnt necessarily prevent all injuries such as face plants onto concrete/back of a bus but it sure dramatically decreases the chances of other head injuries that you could get and save you a lot of pain and embarassment. body armour is good too but broken arms and legs are simple fixes compared to a fractured skull. Go ahead and not wear a helmet if you want to. Don't whine when the doc unwraps your skull in your hospital bed after emergency surgery to tell you you're paralysed on one side of your body because of a simple blood clot in your brain as a result of a direct impact during a collision. Don't tell me a small collision can't cause blood clots. People playing rugby and american football (with all their protective gear) get them from being tackled a little too hard. Don't expect any sympathy either. If you hurt yourself badly, it'll be a result of your negligence.

get concussed a few times, then talk tough about not wearing a helmet

in the interests of avoiding the bad things/brain damage/possible death that they talk about after you have been concussed a few times I now wear a helmet for any sport that involves going fast (and what good sport doesn't)
