A lot has been made of Rossi's various 'special' designs & many of you probably saw this one of Hayden's at Indianapolis. So cool or not & worth the price?

I like it apart from the picture of Hayden's jaw, the rest of the helmet is pretty cool.

I should not laugh as I know how much you thought about and planned this design but that is funny as fk, you are having no luck at the moment, is there nobody down your way that can actually do a decent job of something smile

I was going to write yes instantly but the see 750 squid. I paid 450 for the Rossi "The Donkey" AGV GP Tech with dark visor at the bike show.

However if I had the spare capital i'd buy it.

I promised myself I would buy one of the Hayden reps when Arai released it, but £750 is a serious piece of wedge. It may have to wait until the new year so I can see how work pans out.
