As you may know I have been wearing an open faced helmet ever since I got my Harley last year. You may also know that I work with kids, and the youngest one (Tyler) likes motorbikes, particularly mine …..(which used to be known as Anthony’s Bike, but is now known as Tyler’s Bike). He is also a fan of my helmets, and likes to wear them whenever he gets a chance. 99.9% of the time the wearing of them is done under eyes-like-an-eagle supervision, but one day that wasn’t the case…….and when I heard “that sound” I cringed. I called out from the bathroom….”did Tyler just drop my helmet?” “….no!” was the reply, followed by a long pause followed by “….. he threw it across the room!!”
And so that was the last day that I wore my Matt Black open face helmet, and went back to my full face Shoei XR-1000
Around the time of my birthday I was looking at getting a new helmet and was checking out the new range of Bell Custom 500 helmets, and as the Bell company says, they are original, not retro, and look just like they did in 1954.
And so when I received my belated birthday present which is a custom painted helmet I was super excited to see its a brand new Bell, and here it is….. Custom painted by Anthony from Antman Helmet Designs.
I wore it out for the first ride a couple of days ago, and it looks and fees awesome, I couldn’t be happier,
So that’s it for today, have a good one, stay safe and keep the black things pointing at the road!!
