Who hasn’t accidentally ridden off with their helmet unstrapped? Go ahead and fess up. If your helmet isn’t firmly attached to your head, it’s not going to do its job when you need it the most. Your ritual when pulling out of the garage should include a quick check of the strap for tightness. Do it enough and muscle memory will take over. Don’t believe me? Watch how men instinctively check their zipper every time they walk out of the bathroom.
