After all the recent accidents (Including a thankfully minor one I had - which involved my helmeted head scraping the street), I wear mine ALL THE TIME.

Some quick rides to the store, bank, etc I am tempted to skip it but I make the effort and wear the lid. I'd like to save what I can just in case. You can crash just as easily in one place or situation as the next.
