I always wear a helmet whether it would be the standard or the full
face.

The only time i wear full face is when i'm conquering insane speeds on
my coker though.

Well, I wish I could say that I ALWAYS wear a helmet but I don't.

I don't only under these circumstances:

at the beach (I'm talking on the sand here.. NOT paved roads along the
beach)

in the grass in my backyard

while riding on smooth paved familiar uncrowded paths not open to motor
traffic (my local park is one example)

sometimes I don't while riding in my neighborhood.. I'm admitting it..
but I should as it sets an example to kids and is just a smart thing to
do. I live on a street with one outlet so it has very limited
traffic.. but this is just an excuse.. I still should..

--------------------
I ALWAYS wear a helmet while riding anywhere near the school where I
work no matter what the terrain.

i dont usually wear a helmet unless im trying something that could be
dangerous (like jumping off something as tall as me)
but i usually wear shinpads unless im just riding around and not doing
anything that could hurt my shins..

Yea I always wear a helmet, I bought a really expensive skaters hemet,
about a month ago, I love wearing it, no longer ashamed to wear a
helmet, because you dont look like a dork in it, and I'm always doing
tricks, or trials, so I wear a helmet, i dont know a time when you
shouldnt.

Always. I've tried riding without a helmet, and I like it way more than
riding with a helmet (much cooler, not so much sweat) but due to the
fact that I have hit my head (I was wearing a helmet though), and my
parents wouldn't let me ride without a helmet.

I have never worn a helmet while unicycling.

But I've never done anything remotely trials-like and only
occasionally even go off paved paths.
