Gotta share my happiness for helmet deal! - August 17, 2012, 01:55 PM

So I've been using my motocross helmet with goggles on my FZ1 to try and control my speed: I have a hard time adapting to US speed limits on a bike. Anyway as I am learning to be a citizen, and after a couple 500 mile rides where the lack of aerodynamics and wind nouse really were annoying, I went online with a small budget and great needs: I've never had a "cheap" helmet so I was looking for the right deal.

I found this while looking for replica helmets:



I cannot believe someone has actually made an Anthony Gobert replica helmet!!! He is one of my fav riders of all time, along with Sheen, Falappa and Hailwood, but much more underrated.

Got a NIB helmet with extra clear visor + extra smoked visor + carrying bag and such for 249 shipped!!! Woot woot!

This is what he used to do on a bike, too bad he got thrown out for smoking weed (as if that was "doping"!!!?!) and last I heard he had been arrested for mugging some lady in Australia and is jobless... Such a waste of talent

It's a STAR.

I got mine on closeout from motorcyclecloseouts for 199 shipped a few months ago.

Snell2009 and the fact that the foil overlay on all of them is a little wonky is the reason they are so discounted.

I like mine a lot. Can hardly notice the insufficient clear coat and overlay problems unless you're holding the helmet.

the ones on motorcyclecloseouts.com are sold as flawed (paint), I would have bought it there too, but they didn't have my size.

@ Airjor13: what's you problem man? Don't like my posts? Don't reply.

Gobert was a beast on a bike. Didn't he have a tire blow out at Daytona one year, control it, come back into the pits and them still get on the front row for qualifying....or some such crazy shit. What ever......damn shame he got lost to drugs. Massive talent. Him and Russell racing for Muzzy Kawasaki were some of my favorite races.


Oh and congrats on the helmet.

Seriously, why even bother responding? Why go out of your way to be a dick? If this doesn't interest you, move the fuck along.
