Either the Stig or a Jedi warrior......or someone really concerned about head injuries.

if y'all haven't figured it out yet I crave attention. I must not get enough at home or some other kind of psycho bullcrap. I drove my 55 from Murfreesboro, Tennessee to Bowling Green, Kentucky with this full faced helmet on. Loads of looks, tons of head shakes, and several WTF's mouthed

I enjoyed it, but was waiting to get pulled over by someone.

I probably would've done the same thing but with a black helmet. You can protect your face from the bugs and from the sun!

I love it. At least I'll know you if I meet you on the highway ! Drove to Memphis & back over the weekend and only saw one SLK headed west on I-40 about 50 miles west of Nashville. It was silver, but no helmet.

See the image below. JonB is wearing red in the middle of the picture. Do you see the the low chain around the edge of the grass? Jon didn't.

It was amusing that they had that chain to stop cars driving on the grass but we all parked up on the one bit of grass that didn't have a chain

I think the best part is that a number of us know of the Stig!

In Rochester, over the weekend, I saw three prevoiusly unseen SLK's. Typically I only see two others, in my travels, with my hours. Was a treat for sure. One was parked and the other two did NOT acknowledge my waves.
