Reminiscing with The Purple Helmets
The Purple Helmets - Stunt Riding
The Purple Helmets - Stunt Riding

I have no idea how to describe The Purple Helmets.  How about "Monty Python's frat-boy nephews meet The Three Stooges?

If you've ever watched any coverage of the Isle of Man TT, you've probably seen those wacko guys in dirty brown dusters riding beater Honda 90's and entertaining the crowds between races with totally outrageous stunts.  Finding this video had me reminiscing about the glory days at the ISDE where these guys got their start by being a bunch of mates trying to be unique and have a great time while supporting the team from Great Britian.  I first witnessed their antics in Poland in 1995 and this video brought back some memories of a forgotten time.

Check out the rest of Pat O'Neill's Crash Photos

Former Canadian DirtWise attendee Pat O'Neill:
 "It was just a good day of practice at Burnt River, getting ready for the XC. I was doing a one and a half hour moto, and on my last lap the bike just sort of took off on a jump face. I tried to ghost ride it but the seat grabbed me and took me for a tumble..."

This is just one of the great shots in a photo sequence of the crash on our mate Dan Paris put up on his website: Thanks for making this available guys, and we're stoked that you walked away from that one Pat!


Huge congrats go out to our good mate John Bowling who placed 2nd Overall in the B45 Championship for the National Enduro Series.
