Like TimNL, I wear a solid safety yellow-green helmet. It is a cheap closeout modular, but is comfortable and locks up tight. I can put it on with my glasses on. It has a good flip down shade, which I never thought I'd use but use constantly. I'm willing to spend more on a better safer helmet, but for me, the color is the thing. Not many (if any) of the better manufacturers offer a modular in solid yellow-green. I've been told numerous times that I can be seen from a long way off and I see that as a major part of the protection a helmet offers. The big dealer here says helmet makers don't approve of painting their helmets or wrapping them, so for now I'll stick with my hi-viz beacon hat.
Hopefully hi-viz gear will become more acceptable in the near future and the idea of looking cool will include safety considerations. If you can make yourself more visible you may not ever need to test the crash protection of your new helmet. But any helmet, even a bicycle helmet, can save your life. I'm glad we're having this conversation. Best, DD
