Nope, always ride with mine, never know when you are going to need it...

BTW heat is what we love about Texas. right?

been riding for almost 30 years...
I know the possible results as I have had helmets save my head and my face a few times.

That said, I now rarely wear a helmet....
I do own one, but it stays home unless there is possible rain.

However, if I did normally wear one, heat would not stop that practice.
I may go to a half shell, but would at least still wear something.

I don't like the half helmets, they make me feel like a mushroom. I guess I should cut my hair. :confused:

I live in Laredo, so the temperature here is always around 107 daily now, having said that I ALWAYS wear full face (convertible) helmet, leather "Boulevard" jacket (free from the dealer), and Mechanix gloves (mesh+leather) and steel-toed RedWings.

I figure it's better HOT in all this gear (though VERY cool once I am outta traffic and under way) than in a hospital needing skin grafts :eek:

Ditto in South Central Texas HOT! HUH? YEAH! Wear my convertable HJC Symex, Joe Rocket Phoenix, and leather gloves. I dress for the slide, not the ride? :bigthumbsup:
