I'm looking for a low profile 3/4 open face helmet. No luck yet. All the helmets I've looked at, ride real high on my head, and look very funny. May concider a 1/2 helmet also. Any ideas.....??

Thanks

I have the HD Jet II 3/4 helmet and it looks pretty good. I think they all sit that way because of the padding required between your coconut and the outside shell of the helmet for DOT approval. If you just want the appearance of a helmet without the burden of the foam padding get a skid lid (novelty helmet). A bowl cut haircut will protect you as much.

If you want to protection for your noggin you have to accept the Darth Vader look.

I disagree with the novelty helmet in comparison to the bowl haircut. I am bald so the novelty protects the noggin from sunburn. At least give it as much protection credit as a ball cap with a strap :p

In all seriousness, I also bought the Outlaw ultra thin 1/2 helmet. I also got a letter saying it was recalled and to send it back for a full refund.

I have no idea where Outlaw stands with that helmet now.

I hope you didn't send it back.

I never got a letter , have no intensions of sending it back anyway. After 2-3 helmets, which cost a lot more $, I like this helmet best

Was looking at the Bell Custom 500, says low profile as well. I'll check out the Outlaw helmets too. I do want a DOT helmet. What sucks is, you can't try'em on before you buy it. Pics with helmet on would help...;)

Thanks guys
