    I have a Roof Boxer helmet. It has the face mask that can rotate back over the top of the head which is handy in the Atom

    Thanks, i'm in CA and picked up my Atom a couple of weeks ago. I've completed my CHP inspection, break & light inspections and have the final hurdle (smog) on Wednesday. Though the weather report is saying it will be raining heavily, so it's going to be an interesting drive!

    Riley,
    Looking good man, congrats! I'm pretty "jelly" that I ordered mine 6 months ago and don't have it yet. But anyway, good write up, and now I have a better idea of what to expect.

    it was done prior to mine, i saw the car.. looks insane.. just was waiting on transport..

    i think i ordered it "right" with the batch of frames and lack of orders... i made sure to ask about all that too... he said with certain options it wouldn't come till january...

    i hope you get yours soon, i think the Cali thing add's time too cause the hassle involved...


    be careful all matte black, it's like a stealth bomber... and hard enough to see on the road as is.

    7 months! Ok, I don't feel so bad. But you guys know how it is when it's soooo close. I'm trying not to think about it, but that's difficult. Hopefully I'll be able to share some experiences soon!

    Riley, I was looking at some of your pics again...good job with the white tub. It ties everything together and looks bad ass. I wasn't a big fan of any other color but black, but yours is a nice combination...

    I just noticed this in your pictures. The one with the dash and the detached steering wheel, is the engine still on? If not, then the tach is way off
