Hey, I resemble that graphic

And yeah, it's pretty fucking offensive. Growing up as one of 2 Asians in my redneck Florida school, I used to beat the shit out of kids that used to do that to my face. Guess I still got a chip on my shoulder.
Thanks from quackquack and Marmoot

thats the way to do it jeff knock the crap out of them, i feel you on that. however this was over there and I know a guy that was in japan for that race and they took it as he wanted to be japanese and took it as a compliment. the shirts were flying out the store. guess 2 different cultures 2 different outcomes

remember this had to be approved. honda and shoei both and both are japanese companies

I guess that's the difference. I'm Filipino and all the other non-Japanese Asians hate the Japanese for all their WWII and previous atrocities perpetrated on us. Nobody in the region thinks like them so it makes sense they would have liked the gesture. Idiots.

Edit: Haha, after reading what I wrote, I realized how racist I'm being! Guess racism is just human nature so I should just toughen the F up and take what I dish out!

It appears the Red Bull and Lotus advertisement graphics will not be incorporated into the Black Ant helmet design, as displayed in the original post. 'Tis a shame as I think it looks great with the sponsors, but will probably be picking one up regardless.

The actual design is pictured below:

I like the look of this new NXR model from Shoei. Lighter, better vented, street orientated, but with a very sporty look.

Hope it fits me well, as my hopes are pinned to it as a long overdue replacement to my Corsair.

here are pictures of my helmet. the visor i have not gotten yet (transition shield) but i have the stickers on my bell. anyway the lotus is a little smaller than what marquez has because his is painted on and i have to work around the vents and curves and such but came out pretty good. if i wanted the real one it would have to be expanded .5 in everywhere (letters arrow length etc) but with the vent very hard to do.

Nothing wrong with it, just my Pedrosa is >5yrs old, so needs to be replaced.

Also, in Arai I need the XL shell, which is massive, then I need to sleeve it down with new guts, so it fits tight. I have no idea why the L doesn't even go on my head
