Pros - somewhere to store your gloves when not riding
Cons - You'll fly into a bug which will get stuck in there and wriggle about and you are sure it's a wasp and you are just waiting for the sting and you lose concentration and ride straight into a kerb stone and fall off... lucky you were wearing a helmet, eh. :smile:

I fell off whilst riding helmetless. Cracked my head hard on the edge of the curb.

Glad I wasn't wearing a helmet, could have been far worse.
