Oh goodness, I guess I didn’t know that Ruby Helmets has a custom/build your own helmet section. So naturally I spent a few minutes mocking up what would look oh so lovely with the Monster

Such fancy, fancy helmets.

Submission from Roxxi O’Hara- 

I was privileged to ride the track at MOTO GP Austin last weekend with a bunch of very kewl Ducatistas and met this very sweet young lady named Stephanie from Houston. Always refreshing to see a Moto Lady…makes me smile.

Stephanie clearly knows the joys of motorcycling, what a beautiful smile! Proud of her early Ducati Monster, perhaps?Thanks Roxxi!

4k Giveaway Helmet Paint by Jeff Wolf

The other day I posted a preview photo of Heidi Cormier's custom helmet from the 4k Facebook Giveaway, promising better ones would come later. Welp, here they are.

Heidi specified black and gold as her two colors, and I relayed that to the talented Jeff Wolf when I gave him the medium Icon Airmada helmet.

If you recall correctly, my friend Emma Bass got into an unfortunate motorcycle accident caused by a large truck trying to skate across four lanes of traffic. She was a little bruised and busted but came out okay. Since then, Emma has been outfitting herself with proper motorcycle gear. She wrote me to ask how I felt about my Icon 1000 Federal jacket, and now picked up one of her own. 
"Best purchase I’ve ever made besides my first motorcycle. It’s my first legit motorycle jacket and it’s ten times safer than any number of jackets I’ve owned before. Score!"
Well said, Emma. Plus, you look hot!

I couldn’t find anywhere else this photo exists on the internet besides tumblr. If anyone has an idea where this ivory/gold/black custom came from… TELL ME. Those’re the same colors of the Monster…
Sometimes I hate google reverse image search- Roland Sands Design for Mickey Rourke. Duh.
