The Ultimate Squid Helmet

Have you guys seen these?



my wife and I saw this guy walking around the mall the other day with is chest all puffed out, walking around in shiny new mesh gear.... and skate shoes..
Not 10 minutes later we saw him on his bike (CBR250) with a slip on, wearing this helmet..... and red-lining off the stop light.
I've never seen these before....from the looks of it, the helmet cost more than the rest of the gear

Sent from my phone, because I'm probably bored somewhere

Actually unlike someone getting on a CBR250 with a slip on rocking that helmet on a Vespa would be awesome, especially if it's pastel colored.

I agree. On a Vespa the effect would be one of ironic fun.

Here outside of Fort Bragg there's a whole crew of street riders with Star Wars helmets. One guy wears Darth Vader, the rest wear storm trooper helmets. I've also seen a home made predator helmet too. Don't get me started on the Crown Vics painted like candy boxes. Got to admire the talent of the work, but who has the cash to throw around like that?

easy - don't pay your child support and you can have 22's on your car and cool helmets. That's how it's done in Memphis.

I have the red Aerostitch suit and I kept suggesting that an Iron Man helmet would look awesome, then my kid found a pic of someone that had an Elmo helmet, and that pretty much killed the conversation.

True, I look more like Elmo than Tony Stark, but I don't really like to be tickled.

Back in the 80's when I was into sportbikes and had matching red/white leathers, boots, helmets, etc...all the little kids got excited, because they thought I was a Power Ranger.

Seems the ultimate squid helmet is no helmet at all...
