That is pretty sweet, X!  How did you hang them?

I think I am at 8.  Half good and half not.

I hung them with a generic coat hook I found at Ikea.
I took a tad bit of work to get the mirrors to line up to the helmets...
But it was worth it.

Including auto racing, probably replace 15-20 est.

8 on the wall.
5 crashed, 3 retired.


LOL the 3 retired ones are mine (upper left - which my current Arai will replace when it's retired/I cut my hair, lower left is my first helmet, and the one to the right of is is a Suomy I got from K3 - so one of your old helmets survives dude!). There's a couple more, and some MX helmets in the closet. There's two of the middle row-right side one, but I made him put the cleaner one there, it squicked me out too much to have the one still covered in dirt and globs of blood hanging on the living room wall.

The helmets are hung with these: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20099793
They're super sturdy yet bend easily enough to adjust the height and placement of each helmet a little. The two screws are kind of overkill but that wall was full of nail holes when we bought the house anyway. The mirrors in between were from IKEA as well.

Sounds like there is something wrong with your G/F.
Just ask anyone here.

Wait wait, I'm not "X-wife" (that's actually a completely different Jen, if you want to make it really confusing). I prefer "Jen-X" or "Trophy Wife" thank you very much.  :lmao:

Never thought of Jen-X, usually I refer to your as X's Jen, I think I like the former best!  :thumb:
