    How many helmets do you own?

    How many helmets do you own and why? I am thinking about getting a third helmet and would like a reality check for owning three helmets.

    I have bought 8 helmets since 1970. I still have all but one of them. My first helmet (a stars & stripes) was stolen from my bike in high school.

    My BMW System 1, System 2, System 3, System 4, and System 5 are all retired. Currently riding wearing System 6. I've never alternated between multiple helmets at the same time. Just one at a time.

    2, but only one that I use. Total in the house is like 8, but that includes all family members helmets.

    I only use a single HJC CL15. It's due for replacement next season.

    I have way too many obsolete helmets hanging around. One of these days I'm going to use them for target practice!
