Have you looked at the BELL, I bought one just to have as a spare. I like it when I don't feel like wearing my modular.

Have you checked the local harley dealer? They usually carry a lot of Half Shells. They have some with the flip down visor.

All made by HJC for Harley, if you're looking for an HJC.

If it ain't broke, try to fix it anyways

Hjc?

I have an HJC half helmet with a dropdown visor. I think it's pretty round fit, compared to my Bell. I like it, because it fits a little lower around the back. Provides a bit of extra protection.

I was looking for the same type of helmet and to avoid the mushroom head look. I found a very low profile helmet but you have to give up the flip down visor to get this small. Found it at bikerhelmets.com

Do you know the model number for the HJC you have?

This one looks sharp! We could probably (reluctantly) live without a drop down visor but we also need a "skirt" around for the intercom (speakers, mic,...) and for a cold mornings (and days).... Thank you for a suggestion, really sharp looking helmet!... Perfect for a hot summer rides...
