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 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.

Has anyone actually had a helmet stolen?


m
Some years ago, a friend stopped by house, parked on the sidewalk and left his helmet on the seat. When he returned to his bike the helmet was gone...stolen. I had an old helmet that I didn't have the heart to throw away and gave it to him. Does that answer your question?
I just bought a Shoei Neotec - not cheap - and that baby gets locked up good or I take it with me.

My head. Just kidding. I usually just hang it on the bars. Stealing a helmet is grounds to get killed so haven't ever has one lost or stolen

I have a Vegas 8 Ball 2013...ordered an after market helmet lock black from the dealer ($30). I mounted on the black side rail below the seat, shifter side. Drilled two holes and installed with two black bolts...works great and out of the way.

I put mine over the Passenger backrest and use a combo retractable wire lock. It probably only stops some punk from grabbing it just to be malicious , because it would take a little effort. If somebody really wanted it I guess they will take it.

There are bar end locks, check 'em out. Some look really nice.
