Valentino Rossi Chicken Helmet

would you like your eggs sunny side up or scrambled?

Chickens are weird creatures. I know, because I have a couple that peck and scratch around in my yard all day long. They look at you with that sense of fear and mistrust that comes from absolute assurance that you're about to chop their head off and throw them on the rotisserie at any minute. They're stubborn, friendly, curious and hard working. They also produce lots of crap.

So it is perhaps fitting, in some way (I don't know how yet), that AGV would release its latest iteration of the limited edition Valentino Rossi helmets, featuring a giant chickensmack in the middle of the top of the helmet.. Designed once again by Vale's faithful designer and friendAldo Drudi. Only 300 or so will ever come to the United States, so if you miss out on this release, better brush up on your Italian so you can pay more and get it abroad.

The AGV Rossi Chicken helmet is shipping NOW. Buy to own, to wear and to collect. Once again, Rossi and AGV have created something very special and unique for the motorcycle community. Motostranohas been pre-selling this helmet already for about 3 months, but with the helmet shipping now, it's a great time to stop procrastinating and get that order in.

ICON Krazy Klown

ICON's new Alliance helmet, the Krazy Klown, is absurd, psychopathic and pretty cool.
Not sure if it was modeled after this guy or this this guy.

This is what they say

"Coulrophobia, or in laymen's term, a completely rational fear of clowns. It's an extremely common condition usually instigated by a youth spent near carnivals, hobo encampments, or fast food restaurants. Whatever the cause there is no known cure. Some will tell you that clowns are merely actors with facepaint. Wrong. All clowns are evil demonic demons and desire nothing more than to eat you alive - you know, for fun. Those aren't idle ramblings of the Iconic mind, those are facts. All world standard, meets or exceeds the following: DOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (Europe), SAI AS1698 (Australia) & SG (Japan) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI or SG certification stickers unless purchased in that country. Injection molded Polycarbonate shell Wind tunnel tested and refined Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup Internal on/off cheek exhaust switches Removable molded breath deflector Chin venting system reduces shield fogging Fully removable/washable HydraDryTM interior Quick-change fog-free eye ProshieldTM ProLockTM secure shield locking system Removable FSB fin kit included"
