HiRôAD Motorcycle Helmet | Custom Art Feature
I am so excited to share the final HiRôAD Motorcycle Helmet design I custom painted for Terry Madden, a prominent figure in the off road racing industry. Recently, I was selected as one of six artists to custom paint a Biltwell helmet for a chance to have our design in Terry’s high end line up of gear at their new adventure and fabrication shop, HiRôAD, in Yucca Valley, CA. I was inspired to paint some of my favorite places to adventure in California, including Big Bear Mountain and Joshua Tree, for this design.
A HUGE thank you to the good hearted people over at Alphanamel in Detroit, who sponsored all the beautifully colored enamels I used on this retro inspired, HiRôAD motorcycle helmet for the HiRôAD Shop!

It is so cool to see how Terry, and so many others, are coming together to make sure Jessi’s legacy lives on strong. For those of you that do not know, Jessi Combs was an American professional racer, television personality, and metal fabricator. She was looked up to by many people, including myself, for ‘paving the way’ in the automotive industry, particularly for women who where interested or talented in similar automotive related professions.She set a women’s land speed record in 2013 and 2016. She was known as “the fastest woman on four wheels”. Unfortunately, Jessi passed away in 2019 after crashing a jet-powered high-speed race car in Oregon while attempting to better her land speed record. I had the pleasure of meeting Jessi at the SEMA show in Las Vegas in in 2018, after a few years of her online support of my artwork, via social media. Now, her boyfriend, Terry, is carrying on one of their dreams by opening a high end adventure and fabrication shop in Yucca Valley, California called, HiRôAD.
