Here's my Davida Jet: VERY nice helmet with leather and silk lining. Kind of hot for short summer trips, but GREAT in cold weather and for long interstate rides.
The other is a Daytona 3/4. It needs some One-Shot on there, but I have to get ALOT better at laying lines before I'd be seen in publc wearing any of my hack-ass work! It's a little more low profile than the davida, cooler and lighter, too. (not to mention about 75% cheaper!)
Heres one I flaked to wear at the HAMB drags
I am fortunate in that I was born free and live in a state
where I can ride free.Wish it was that way for everyone.
I dont want to get started on the helmet debate
but its just nice to be able to make a choice.
Also would like to bring out the pic one more time
from fellow JJ member Brian P.This was funny as shit and a great
photo shop job by the way.
Sorry Crow didnt mean to disappoint yer girl at the drags
when I left my outfit at the hotel and she could get any
pics of me wearin it.
If anyone's looking for a 60-70's style open face (rounded at the bottom, not the new sqaured of ones, Pep Boys actually has a DOT approved one for $35. It's light and once you scrape the stickers off you'd never know it wasn't 20 years old.
Man....this is another reason I have to get a new digital camera!
I'm always complaining that I can't collect anything small and managable.
Like stamps. Or money.
Its always gotta be something stupid like model cars or old drumsets.
Anyhow....I've sort of amassed a collection of some pretty cool old metal flake helmets....my pride and joy being a Shoie (sp?) "Fancy Stripe" in black & silver with a gold metal flake over it.
Its hideous & I love it!
I know you guys would appreciate it...unlike the sheep around here.
This guy I work with (who just doesn't get ANYTHING) once threatened to run me off the road if he ever saw me wearing it in public.....although I THINK he was still upset about the time I put a grease fitting in the back of his tool box & kind of filled it up the top draw on him.....but that's another story.
Anyhow....I say the uglier the better...if for no other reason than making some shithead on his cell phone in his suv stop for a second and say, "Wow! Look at that moron in the sparkley....oh! Wait...he's on a motorcycle."
