I've been riding for 31 years and always wore a helmet. That helmet saved me twice. They're both long stories so I'll just skip that part. 10 years ago I started wearing a full face. Full face helmets match metric bikes / they don't look so bad. I'll be getting my first Harley in September. I just can't see myself riding it with a full face, I would look real laughable. Like you I've never enjoyed wearing a helmet and the full face can get real hot in the summer. I've seen a person's face that met the pavement, it wasn't good.
