I'm curious about why some people choose not to wear a helmet. To those who do not wear a helmet when riding, could you answer why?

Let us assume that Mr. Monkey is asking in good faith.

I choose not to wear a helmet when riding my bike for the same reason that I choose not to wear a helmet while driving my truck or walking on the sidewalk: the inconvenience is not warranted by the risk.

I might add that I have whacked my head mightily several times - once badly enough that I probably should have gone to hospital to make sure I didn't have a concussion. But that time I was walking in Westdale; the other times, I was driving, sailing or skating.
