They are knight rider style rocket boosters so Doug can jump the river sections on the road of bones when the bridge is out. His support crew will be on the other side cheering him on.

I got mine a few years ago. I have about 30 old metalflake helmets in my collection, but didnt have the rebel flag, and I wanted one for my RTW trip.

I was in Tennessee & stopped to see my friend (I will call him Bill, because that is his name)
Anyhow, at his shop, he had both this one, & the damn yankee version.
He told me he had found them at a flea market for 5.00 each.
Both were like new. I asked him to sell me the rebel one for my trip. He didnt want to sell it.
So I offered him 150 for it. I REALLY wanted it! and it was perfect!
He was a bit shocked, but said no, because since I knew he paid 5.00 for it, he didnt want to sell it to me for so much more. I told him thats what Im offering, as its here, in my hand, fits good, and I didnt wanna dick around with buying some crap off ebay.
Finally he gave in, but said he didnt want me bitchin about the price later. hahaha

So Im still wearing it. I did send it off this year & had it relined at hellmuttliners.com. feels much better now

And everytime I see Bill, I say 'Theres that son of a bitch who charged me 150 for a 5 dollar helmet!'



Doug
