Did anyone notice that MC is wearing two different colorways in this photo? How did the Fox gear rep allow that to happen?

Agreed... I also like the snow-camo version. You can buy both of them on Stellars website.

I like the spirit they have in making the retro gear, but they never go whole hog, and there is always something about each of the retro designs, such as bland colors, that seems to kill it.

That's wha 've been trying to get some of these guys to understand. It is quite possible that they had a few more flashy options worked up and the sponsors shot them down.

Shapes? Which of these shapes is misplaced?

What is Last Minute about it? They still have months until Anaheim 1. Sponsors require approval of their logo placement... it could very well be that Jimmy Johns requires their logo to be placed on an all-black background. All major companies have Brand ... more »

Somebody else mimicking TAGGERs designs and style, but it is good that you are jumping in and putting in the effort. Painting a helmet is not an easy thing.

Why would you do that? Not only would those wheels stick out like a sore thumb, if you are trying to do a faithful rebuild of the bike in the picture you would be straying pretty far.

OCD does really good work... I really like the grandpa side of your helmet, that's a sick job. 99% of the time when people posts their own helmets that have been painted by someone I don't much care for them, but that one is really good.

No that is WAY too much in this case. Well, not for the type of plane they would be flying. A few thousand an hour for a smaller Citation or Learjet. Your estimates are way too high for the utilization these guys are getting from private AC. I'd say ... more »

Kevin Windham told me he spent over a million dollars flying private. I interviewed him for a story I wrote that is lost on Davey Coombs' desk! Here's a pic from our interview... that's my uniform he's wearing.

Personally I think that WAY too many artists directly copy TAGGERs work. Very unoriginal when they do. For example, Shades of Gray. Brian I think his name is is a great artist, and his Emig replica is awesome, but nobody can do TAG like Tag.

Ya Mike Jeff Long does amazing work... I posted one of his helmets. It has that "1990s Texas Paint" feel to it, kinda like Ric Duppstadt, remember him? He still paints I think, although not so much mx like he used to.

I agree with your statement that Brett King is the new Troy Lee... he even says in a youtube video that he just kindof lucked into it, and before he realized it he was oing f1 helmets. Seems to be a really cool guy. I checked out one of the designers ... more »
