It is utterly bizarre to me that I have somehow stumbled into a life in which I am shopping for motorcycle accessories. How the hell did that happen?
I bought a SMS Visione in pearl white with black stripes, and it arrived yesterday. I am very happy with it; it fits snuggly whilst still being nice and light, and I love how it looks. There is a definite hint of Princess from G-Force about it, now all I need is a pink dress, a white cloak and some high white boots.
Originally I was heavily leaning towards a sliver glitter helmet, which was rather stunning, but that didn't have a face visor and I decided that whilst looking like a mirror ball might be fun, it might also be a little over the top. So I went with something classic (and a good $50 cheaper...).
The SMS website has the following information about their designers:
"SMS is an Italian designed helmet line. Mr. Landi is the main designer behind these exclusive scooter helmets. Mr. Landi lives and works in Milan, where he finds much of his design inspiration in this beautiful old European city in the heart of Italy. Guiseppe is the other Italian designer, responsible for building high quality, safe helmets with a stylish look. Together they have created this elite line of scooter helmets with a distinct European retro feel."
I love that! Mr Landi and Guiseppe!
