Well you have a point there. When not riding alone, I ride with the local bike club, and the recumbent club in Omaha. We all value our heads enough to wear helmets all the time.

Again I might point out that I ride a recumbent, and ride a trike. Even with the recumbent being low, I wear a helmet for protection in any low speed accidents where helmet mainly work. Then there is the trike. The chances of needing a helmet while riding a trike is incredibly small. Yet I wear my helmet for the other minor reasons that having a hemet is a good idea. Mine has a visor to help shade and keep the sun out of my eyes, and also provides sun protection for the top of my head. Besides as I have posted, once a helmet is strapped on it is totally forgotten. I simply do not see any negatives about wearing a helmet.
