I sometimes skip my riding jacket but I never skip the helmet. When I was a mere 20 years old, a few decades back, I got into an accident that cost me 26 days in the hospital and 6 months off of work. My cheap a$$ helmet saved my life. I kept it around as a reminder for many years. It had a nice shattered pattern in the fiberglass that reflected what my skull might have otherwise looked like if I had not been wearing it.
Here I am at 65 years old and still alive and riding. I won't pull out of my driveway without the helmet. I live in a state that does not require a helmet but I wear mine anyway.
