  1. Hello, Lisa.
    Your blog is very interesting, congratulations 😉 I’m sure that You’re a great mum too 😉
    You write a lot about riders’ helmets. I’ve got a question, is AGV going to produce more helmets like the one, that Rossi has been using in Mugello this year? I loved this design, but I’m afraid that Rossi’s crash in Mugello could discourage AGV to produce it. What do You think? Greetings from Poland 😉

    1. HI there Piotr, thanks for leaving a comment!
      Rossi’s helmets are so sought after that his result in Mugello shouldn’t make a difference to AGV, the graphic was popular and he is endlessly marketable so I’d expect to see a limited edition announced soon, Rossi’s helmets always draw in good pageviews so I will definitely blog about it when there is an announcement.

      I love the design but personally will be limited to buying a nice little Minichamps model replica when that comes out instead!

      Hope you enjoy the racing from the Sachsenring this weekend!
      Lisa

      1. Yeah, but the helmet next to the turtle still has Monster Energy logo and ‘tribu dei chihuahua’ sign, so I think it’s not ready for sale 😉

  2. Great point Piotr, would hope they are genuine so went for a polite reply earlier to see if they communicate again… plus I’m pretty sure now having had a good look around that Lorenzo isn’t releasing the grafitti helmet either, charity only, I thought. Let’s see if we get a reply in defence of the shop… 😉

    1. Guys thanks for the compliment. Thw photo used in the banner indeed is the only photo agv released of this helmet. The only difference between the helmet on the photo and the released version is that it doesnt have the monster logo. The tribu dei chihuahua sticker comes with it as a free present. The graffiti helmet of lorenzo actually is released and the first delivery of this helmet will be done around 15 october. Same here the sector sticker will come with it as a free present. I appreciate you guys like the way the helmets are being displayed.
