Sachi darlin' you walked right into this one. Women have been complaining for years that it's hard to find gear designed for them, now a company whose clientel isn't known for wearing helmets in the first place, actually tries to put some thought into a product that caters to women and you want to b*tch about it?.....

Who says women are never satisfied????????????

Yeah, we do. But I've never heard ONE complaint about helmets. Our problem is finding leathers and other protective clothing that fit. Boots (for big calves) and gloves (with really short fingers) too. All too often these things are simply sized down from men's clothing and simply do NOT FIT.

But as I said, I've never heard a single complaint about helmets. And hair is just not that damned thick.

If Dr. Balzak can notch a seat for the guys, then Harley can notch a helmet for the ladies.

It's a good bet that HJC is the manufacturer. They're probably the largest mfgr worldwide of helmets, and many "Independent Brands" (such as Icon and ZR1) use them.

Mark Love used to be the HJC U.S. Rep, but I don't know who has the job now - they could tell you for sure if they made the Harley-branded lids.
