Default Where do you put your helmet?

I live in Memphis, TN which is one of the highest crime cities in the US. I've previously owned sport bikes which all had lockable places for helmets. I have yet to find one on my highball. Am I just missing it? Or do cruisers just not have them. I currently hang my helmet on my handlebars (with glasses and gloves inside) but I worry about it getting stolen if I'm not in full view of my bike.

Do you have crash bars? If you do, any MC accessory place will have keyed helmet locks that clamp on with security screws. Be sure you get ones for your bar diameter.

I don't have crash bars but now that I know I'll check them out. Maybe mount it to the frame.

I have seem those mounted to frames. You might need one of those T shaped helmet lock extenders.

Usually on my head.









Plenty of places sell cable locks. either get one with a combination lock or a keyed one. FF work best with these, but the lock shackle can be run through the D rings.

Living in a lid free state, a used helmet is about as likely to get stolen as a pair of stinky old sneakers.
