Helmut is so cool. I started with gloves, and windowshopped the suits he had on the rack...drooling like a starved puppy. I bought my first suit from him when I raced AFM back in the early 90's. It cost about $1300. I rode a Kawi so it had to match the custom paint (green of course).
This one ran nearly $2500. Same solid quality as always. Sold my 'old' green/white suit through their shop. Never had a bad deal with them in almost 20 years I've been going to him.
Now THAT'S impressive. Only wish they didn't have to price it in a category which makes it a plaything of the priviledged.
