OK Gas Man I agree on part of that. I woundn't say that they are fugly. However, I wouldn't want one to wear on a daily or few times a week either. For the work that was put in to them to have a lid like this is something pretty hard. Great job on them. But since there is this much time and effort and MONEY put into them it would suck all kinds of donkey arse if you scrached it or did something else to the paint.

Let someone else wear it and try to look cool. Not me and I know Matt wouldn't either. He needs that pipe first. hint hint santa. :D

Besides the 1000cc shoot-out on TDC this weekend, they also showed how easy it is to paint your own helmet. They used Dupli-color Mirage, a color shifting paint. They lightly sanded the helmet, then cleaned it, then taped it off. The paint was a three-part process and looked very nice afterward. Cost about $20. Here is the paint site: http://www.dupli-color.com/products/mirage.html Click on the helmet, under the paint cans.

LOL Taillight. Thats funny. I let off the throttle and you pass me then. Buts its the same for me at times. We go back and forth. Its all good.

And for your defense, I have even heard some aftermarket ones sounds worse then yours. :D

The last one looks like Eddie from Iron Maiden - that one is my fav.. I really wouldn't spend the $ though because I replace my lid every couple of years. Maybe I would buy one for once in awhile rides but not an everyday lid.. I would rather spend my money on mods or gear.

Here is another lid I saw a long time ago and came across it again today. Thought you would all like it. I know the WOS guys have seen it. Now this is one I would wear on a everyday ride. :lol:
