    My helmet thread got me thinking. Why'd you give up the Jolly Roger helmet design, dude?

    If you haven't taken note, part of being successful on the world stage is having a kick-ass helmet. :D Look at Pedrosa's boring design. Runner-up for life. Rossi? Multiple titles. Remember when you repeatedly took it to Mladin in 2009? Remember his plain black helmet that year? Yup.

    What would really be slick is something to go along with the "Mississippi Madman" nickname. A designer could have fun with that for days.

    Sincerely,

    - A fan

    And Mladin's helmet wasn't plain black that year, it was carbon fiber, and if you remember Mladin won the title in 2009 ;)

    Agreed. I loves me some Monster (to drink) but no damn way I'm buying a bike or gear with their logo all over it without them sliding some sponsorship $$$ my way.

    I've always said that those boots Mladin had that year were sooooo ugly! Looked like some sport touring gold wing shit

    Mladin wore rebranded Daytona Evo (I think) boots. They were called the Joe Rocket 990 boot. Much cheaper but basically the same design. They discontinued them, but he kept wearing them for a couple more years.

    If you do a Mississippi Madman theme, don't spell it like me. People seem to think your not a dude.

    I've wondered why Arai called it the Jolly Roger or whatever instead of a Hayes replica. Something nefarious afoot like they didn't want to pay Hayes for using his design? They couldn't spell "Hayes?" Why didn't they do the Melissa replica which was cooler and would have sold in the trillions? :D

    I know who won the title. Minor detail. :D I'm sure the Monster logo could be stuck on there somewhere...

    Go to freegun and buy a pair. Wear them, put them on your head and pretend to be a pirate or wear the thing backwards to be a ball splitter, who cares but you got your proof, pervert.

    In response to something about Mel and those underwear and me hating him on Twitter, Josh said something along the lines of "you should see em on my floor." Now I hate him worser.
