Just curious to know, what made you start wearing a helmet? Peer pressure often makes people not want to wear helmets but it was kind of the opposite in my case as I was actually forced to start wearing one by a friend. Most of the people I rode with around 12 years ago (when I was 16) wore helmets and a few of them said I really neded to start wearing one. I didn't though, thinking it would be uncomfortable. Eventually one of my friends brought his spare helmet along on a ride for me and said "You ARE going to wear that". I kinda protested but he stood in front of my bike and physically prevented me from riding any further until I put the helmet on (he was bigger and stronger than me so I didn't really have much of a choice). Then finding out that wearing a helmet really wasn't as uncomfortable as I thought it would be, I bought my own. A couple of years later I came off in some woods, smacked my head against a nice big rock and cracked my helmet, so had my friend not forced me wear a helmet originally I might have actually ended up in a pretty bad way. I owe him a thankyou!
How about you?
