Oil Stained Brain 2012

"On November 3rd and 4th Melbourne played host to the first ever Oil Stained Brain custom motorcycle exhibition. The exhibition was a showcase of 24 backyard built custom motorcycles, a low brow art exhibition and a series of motorcycle short films and documentaries from around the world. With over 2000 people passing through the doors over the 2 day event and a sell out launch party the exhibition was a resounding success and plans are already in place for 2013.

Arai full face 2013

It's always difficult to find a modern full face helmet with a graphic design that is not turbo ugly and that has some class. Arai still has a lot of bad desigsn but they also have some nicer designs for 2013. I'm not running to the shop to buy one but hey, they look Okay!

Still don't like:
The cheesy dropshadows they sometimes use behind the (Huge!) Arai logo's -  don't!
The Dready Performance tekst is very 90's and I heard the 90's are back but what does it mean? why? who needs it?
Why do they write the model name on the back of the helmets? Less is more. use a sticker so we can remove it.

Its nice see we can have graphics without tribals in 2013
