      In the front of my superbike magazine there is a new kbc design that is perfect for all of us red tls riders. It is gloss red with a thick black stripe down the middle and two smaller gold stripes on the edges of the black. It is 219.00 euro so it's not to expensive. It is great looking lid and i will have one in a few months.

        Yup, that's what got me thinking about a new lid and I almost bought the flat black and white one! Pretty hot! If you order it, it comes with a Ducati 999 sticker(optional).

          Yeah man those are sweet, are they gonna be available in america cause they are not on th eus website? You could cut the decal flip the nine and you would have a 996 sticker on the back, talk to jim at fabritech and get a little tl customization going, however i forgot to tell everyone if anyone buys this helmet besides me then you automatically become:

            I've tried one on, but not ridden with it. I like my VR-1 quite a bit and plan to pick-up a Racer-1 before next season. I like the european Retro and Combat schemes, but not enough to pay extra for it. If you want to save $8.05 and still get great service, www.helmetharbor.com is selling the Racer-1 graphic for $249.95 shipped. $225.95 for solids! I've bought from them before and recommend them
            It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a bad example.

                          Hey man there is a pic on the previous link. As far as kbc, i had the black chrome lid and have no complaints even though i dumped 250.00 on it. Comfortable, quiet, and looks the shit.
                          So?
