Should Nicky Hayden keep the new helmet?

Well what does everyone think? IMHO, keep it, it looks about a million times better than the other one.

I like the new USGP graphic a lot more than the Wired design.

I never really liked the wired design anyways. Maybe keeping this one could bring him some more luck?

I like the new one. Maybe we can get lucky and it will symbolize a change in his riding.

hey, if someone can post the arai email addy, we can all email them and ask the same question... they'll see their market and have no choice but to make the helmet available.

I heard from a very reliable source that the new helmet is going to be produced for sale. Not sure when it is coming out though, if/when I hear I'll let ya'll know.

i'm a big fan of the back of the lid, the "support our troops" ribbon is great! i loved when he showed it before the race and flashed the ribbon. although, he might have been flashing his name up, but i was paying attention to the other details...

I'm really digging his new lid. Almost as much as my older Duhamel replica... it'd be a tough choice for me...
