I do the same thing and I don't usually think I'm watching an ad just some guys doing what they love... and I've asked these guys that helmet question and haven't gotten a flat answer but I do know their riding without safety gear comfort level is much higher than mine lol!
Ride how you like is what I say...and the helmet nazis drive me crazy lol
Nice. I forgot I was watching an ad until the end. Has anyone ever noticed that in most amateur or how-to vids guys are wearing their helmets for the most part, but in ads. It's the opposite? Isn't that backwards? MAybe it's just me.
