Does anyone ever change their mind on this topic?
Let's put it this way. I've never heard of anyone being in a wreck with a helmet on who, as a result of what happened, decided to stop wearing one. Maybe that rider exists, but I haven't heard his story. On the other hand, how many folks have decided it's not such a bad idea to wear one after picking asphalt and gravel out of his noggin? Or to continue to wear one after NOT digging asphalt and gravel out of his noggin?
I think that speaks for itself. You may of course do as you like, and make any tradeoff between safety and comfort that you see fit. But when it comes to having your mind changed, I think that's pretty much a one way street, taught only in the school of hard knocks.
