Hard high-side

To the manufacturer that saved my life!!

I had finished my dinner at a restaurant one chilly night, and was ready for the ride home. As I went to make a slow turn out of the parking lot, I put in a little too much throttle. With a cold tire on colder pavement, it wasn’t exactly the smartest thing to do. The bike fishtailed, but I was able to keep the front end up, until I hit a bump. Once that happened, my front wheel went to the right and I was thrown to the left. I hit the ground face-first…hard. My head bounced a good foot or two. I also dislocated my left shoulder on impact. I truly believe that if I wasn't wearing Icon, I wouldn't be here now.

Sincerely... thank you!

Check out the early 09 Fall Helmet release, we just couldn't wait to turn this bad boy loose on the streets!!

The Alliance SSR Represent is a serious bit of kit. Firstly, it features a snarling possessed crop eared mauler of a canine. Not many people are stepping up to the dog plate given the current social climate. But if Icon is gonna come, than we're gonna come correct. If the graphics weren't enough, the supervents on the Represent can be adorned with an optional adhesive backed metal stud kit. On the chain or off, a spiked up collar goes a long way projecting that certain image.

Finally, and perhaps our greatest genius, is the choice of seven unique chinbar graphics (NorCal, SoCal, Detroit, Philly, New York, Dirty South, or Icon) to rep your favorite hood. Truly a lid thats down for the set. And to all the haters and nay-sayers - Icon does not support or condone any type of dog fighting. Never have, never will. Don't get it twisted.
