    At the Indy round of the Moto GP the Marshals were all on KTM 990 Adventures. I am looking for the brand and type of helmet they were wearing. It was some brand of half helmet but I can't find any info on it.

    Need a couple for my new scooters!

    Hi JBird.

    I was one of the MotoTAxi riders at the GP. Not sure the brand of the helmets we were wearing, but would think they were made by Simpson safety equipment. They're hard to put on and uncomfortable, but can be used with radio headsets.

    Mel Harden directs the mototaxi guys, he may be able to help you, he works for the IMS. (rides a KTM690 as one of his bikes)

    Cheers
