Since you asked about 3/4 helmets.

Bell Custom 500

I know a couple of people that really like these helmets. http://www.lickscycles.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=229
They are low profile and light as well as avoid the Marvin the Martian head.

That's the beauty of the fiberglass Bell 500, unlike a polycarbonite helmet,you could have it painted or striped & not be concerned that the solvents would weaken the shell.

Bought the Bell 500 in matte black last year, very comfortable, well made. Really helps riding in cold weather and looks good too

Why anyone has less than a full face is beyond me. The full face saved my ear. My favorite is "loud pipes save lives" not one of those believers would think of putting a helmet on.

Here in Idaho we have the chaps wearing folks that claim that they wear the assless leather pants for protection, but refuse to utilize a helmet for any reason.

I like the Davida but very pricey. I just purchased a black HCI in matte black for 45$. Pic is attached.

I know you already bought your helmet, but in case others come along to look for 3/4 options...I've got one of these AGV Dragon helmets - kind of a helicopter pilot look. It's fun. It fits.
