I never lock my helmet. If someone wants to steal my used helmet, that's a risk I am willing to take for the time being. I have never had a helmet stolen, and until that happens, I am not locking mine.
Oh, by the way, I do own a lock - it's a Kryptonite... long cable, auto retracts (when you push a button), and has a combination on it. I never used it - it's in a drawer, in my garage. Wish I never bought it.
People do stupid, spiteful things, but also anyone can accidentally brush up against your helmet that's hanging precariously off your bike and knock it to the ground damaging it. Why take the risk? With this lock, you can lock it down to your handlebars/grips/anywhere else it may loop over, and you can simply clip it to your belt loop if you don't have any storage to stow it away while riding.
Thanks for all the ideas. Visionjohnny... now that is funny! I don't have my sissy bar on all the time so I can't rely on that. I have seen the handle bar end attachment, which I like, but I have one piece chromed grips on the bike. I just bought two new helmets and didn't want them to walk off. I will probably continue to just hang it on the bike for short periods of time but for any extended length of time, BanditSRT8's suggestion is exactly what I was looking for. It is small and can fit in a pocket if not needed but can lock one or both helmets if needed.
Try this http://boltlockcorp.com/ I put it on the bolt that holds the tank on the right hand side. I use the 6' cable, hang two leather jackets on the windshield and two helmets on the right side of the bike ( throttle and front brake lever) and run the cable through it all. I dont have any pics with me and wont b home til Oct. It blends in real nice. I've never had anyone say " WTF is that thing" anyway.

I'm trying to find a driver/passenger seat with a passenger backrest that attaches to the seat or fender where the seat is bolted down or just a backrest that only attaches to the back area of the passenger seat so I can keep my current seat for now. They have a cleaner look. I saw some...
Thoughts on the best year jackpot to purchase? The reason I ask is a guy close to me has an 06 jackpot with 7,000 miles for sale asking $10,500. Through all my looking I've done I can buy a 11 or 12 for the same price similar miles. His has a few mods including aftermarket handlebars, s&s...
