Does it break your heart to give up your pet motocross helmet ? Are you a bit nostalgic about the nice rides and the totally crazy moments that you shared wearing it ?

It’s perfect for your evenings spent in the comfort of your home watching motocross races, and rather useful when emptying your pockets or storing the remote control.

Combining practicality with pleasure, why not make it in the image of one of your mythical characters such as this legendary “Darth Vader” found on Pinterest ?
