4. Wish You Were Here (2013)

Rossi has had a few Marco Simoncelli tribute helmets, but we like the one he wore in 2013 the best. Using elements of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here album, the helmet is one of Rossi’s more somber and subdued designs. While the Wish You Were Here title is an obvious statement from Rossi to Simoncelli, we must also assume Rossi to be a Pink Floyd fan, which ups Rossi’s cool factor for having excellent taste in music.

    Rossi obviously fancies himself a blonde. Excellent taste in albums though.

    I just picked up a Rossi helmet myself, been wearing Shoei forever and thought I would add an AGV to my collection. Got the K3 SV Elements helmet and really like it. Certainly not a nice as my Shoeis and quite a bit louder but still love how bright and colorful the graphics are. Here is Rossi with his version of the lid.

    Well yes, I guess the original Sun & Moon helmet has to be number one. After that it’s a four-way tie for 2nd in my book.

    The Wish You Were Here helemt, and the three helmets where he pokes fun at himself. You left out The Donkey:

    Oh, okay, one more that I really liked, his Elvis helmet:

      Yep, totally inexcusable to leave out the Donkey.

        Well, we can let it go. What’s a little absent mindedness between friends? But his wife is going to kill him!
