Riding without a helmet

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Back home I would sometimes just wear a helmet (open face) and trainers, jumper and jeans (non armoured) on my sports bike. It was too hot to wear leathers.
Wear Bohn armor, that should keep you cool.

Dainese boots are good for hot weather and reasonably light at under 2kg.

In SE Asia, it seems the purpose of a helmet is to avoid a fine and keep the sun off your head. The the cheap, little tourist brain buckets, a Tonka Toy hard hat, or a 'real' helmet that's not done up, aren't going to do you a pinch of coon shit of good in a serious accident.

i think thats how i got into a bad habit of not wearing one, cuz i used to rent a bike, and the helmets they provide are pointless and annoying as they dont fit properly,
after buying a decent helmet i wear it pretty much the whole time now
