ehh...the tommy gun one is too 'gangsta' what with its tommy gun drawing itself and the camo design.

I think tribal always looks cooler, but it doesnt stand out as much as the gun one

Get the TG, since I just bought a Gib, I don't wanna see anyone else with the damn helmet!

Those were my two choices aswell... took me like 3 days to decided which one to get finally.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

Tribal is so played out.

I always say "Get the one that matchs your dildo." That's why we have so many black helmets on here.

Seriously, if it's for the track, the correct answer is "Whichever one looks the best in a wharp-speed blur."

Just make sure it has a tinted visor, I wouldn't want the glare from my undertail exhaust to distract you

Wow ..you arent kidding ..niice! Thanks for the heads up. I think that is cheaper than anything I've seen on ebay.

Liking these graphics too! Haven't tried on a Vector though...




I think I am leaning towards the Gibernau despite the large lead that Tommy has. It mainly due to it being mostly white, and since I will be using it when it is sunny out, I figure the cooler the better...hmmmm.

These two are a close call too ...
