Face painted on back of helmet - awesome!

I was riding behind a crotch rocket the other day, could have passed but didn't. I was mesmerized by his helmet. He had a face painted on the back, you would have sworn the person was riding backwards. Very Kewl!

Very nice job whoever did the work.

I'll hazard a guess that the person who created the helmet and the person who wore the helmet will not read this post.

I'm guessing he/she got the idea from seeing Valentino Rossi's special "my face" helmet. It has a picture of his face on it. Really quite hilarious. You can see it HERE.

Re: Face painted on back of helmet - awesome!

I couldn't get a pic. My camera is mounted on my mirror and only takes pics through the shield, we were in the twisties section in heavy traffic near dusk, and it was not likely I would have been able to get a shot of the helmet. First I had seen one like that. However, it looked just like a face, facing traffic coming up from behind. I really liked it!
