    Is that Koga as in Koga-Miyata? Didn't H-ball used to race for them?

    Clicked on the link... It is in fact Koga-Miyata. Now for the H-ball question?

    Now, just Koga...or the artist formally known as K-M...

The shorter, more pithy brand name already adorns the Race models among others. From this season the logo will also change accordingly: the distinctive Koga blue colour will play a central role in the new brand identity.

    No, IIRC Herbold raced for the Japanese Miyata, and Koga Miyata is a different Dutch company.

    I remember attacking a Bell helmet with markers back in the day in an attempt to make it look like his. I similarly had attacked a Rhode Gear soft shell before that. H-ball was the man.

    Hmmm, I think you might be right... I remember a video with him taking a trip to Japan and seeing his face on huge billboards everywhere.
