Thanks guys, always been quite proud of these. I actually had that trophy (in pieces) at one time.

People say the same about my Davida, but every time I turn around I catch my wife wearing it.

I found this picture over on Shorpy, which, if you haven't already discovered, is an absolutely incredible photoblog. It's a veritable treasure chest of high-resolution vintage photography from the 1850s to the 1960s.

the reason I asked is that it looked like the photo was from the great state of NE. One of my favorite states.

Did not know of that site, so will check it out for sure. Thanks!

I'm not thinking that, Free world buddy, maybe she chose it and doesn't listen to anyone about what she rides or wears, God Bless the USA.

Free world, indeed. Which is why I voiced my opinion, just as you voiced yours.

It's a current but retro-style offering from TT and Co in Japan. Hand made, Japanese specifications legal, IIRC (don't know how that translates for American spec legality).

TT and Co specializes in retro 1970's and 1980's styles made with a small profile specifically to avoid the mushroom head syndrome of nearly every other full face helmet in the world. Pricey stuff, being hand crafted and needing shipping all the way from Nippon, but for those of us into the vintage moto aesthetic it's well worth the price.

I offered up an opinion, before getting good information. My apologies, Nicholas.
