Okay--so maybe the Biltwell helmet doesn't fit everyone. If you're a six-month-old baby biker, you probably need to sprout a few more teeth before you try to burn up the highway in a Biltwell lid.
In other news from the Benelux, our friend Maurice (Flying Dutchman on the Jockey Journal) hung out with me at the 19th annual Fat BMX Jam in Aarle Rixtel. FATBMX.com is a website that Paul's brother Bart has been doing for years. Before the interweb, Fat BMX was one of the best BMX 'zines in the world. The BMX-obsessed guys at Biltwell count on Fat BMX to drop the hottest 411 on the 20-inch scene.
This is Fat founder Bart DeJong hanging out with a Fat Jam spectator on the quiet streets of Aarle Rixtel. Those streets won't be quiet for long, however; Paul has been testing out his new helmet on his XL1000 Dutch chopper...
Clearly, Paul DeJong is the king of American Iron in his revered homeland. Thanks for showing me such a good time, guys.
