Had to share! Is this awesome or what?

Went to the Birmingham, UK motorcycle show today. Purchased the limited edition (500 made worldwide) Arai Isle of Man RX-7 helmet. Now, that is cool enough right, but check it out.......got John McGuinness to sign it! Am I loser.....maybe, but it is an awesome looking helmet and meeting McGuinness was even better. Will post more pics.

BMWTrench, you're one lucky bustard (in a good sense of this word), got a nice lid and got McGuiness himself to sign it... Awesome!!! Congrats! And yeah Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is incredible...

I would never use it, or sell it to a collector.

No, I think it may mess up the ink in the sharpie. I tried it on a sig and it melted the ink.
