I s'pose gentle ratbaggery is fine as long as it's not commenting on the question or the response. I want a totally anonymous poll here.

Fair question.

I'm option 2. The only time I don't put one on is the 100m each way up and down me quiet cul de sac test ride after maintenance.
Option 3 would be the rider who goes au naturel for the milkbar run but not the commute

Anonynous vote inserted
As it's hypothetic it was a bit of a guess but may well leave the helmet at home for a short shopping ride, in the park with my boy, etc.
If too much info MB, feel free to delete content with extreme prejudice.
