I think this was missed, so I'm going to call a little more attention to it.







My 14 comes with an under the seat, and one of these stock and this is BY FAR the easiest method of securing a helmet I have EVER encountered.

I saw that and it looks pretty nice. It looks like its only for the 2012, as it wasn't listed for the 2010 ER-6N? I also came across this on Revzilla:

HelmetLok Helmet Lock - RevZilla

I agree with everyone here that I wouldn't leave my helmet for an extended period of time as I dont trust my fellow man either. I was just looking for a more convenient way to lock it up for a short period of time. Appreciate everyones input here.

I have 2009 ER6 and I bought a bicycle cable lock and put my helmet on the ground next to my front tire and loop the cable through the front rim, this way the helmet is secure along with the bike. I understand the cable could be cut but this works for me....

I added a Givi Monokey trunk to my bike, it can take two helmets and is lockable or can be removed like a piece of luggage.

QD Givi Top Box. Press a button and lift it off when it isn't needed.

Takes the gloves and rain pants as well and lets me carry dress shoes and lap top for meetings.

Nothing worse than leaving your helmet upside down in a helmet lock and coming back to find that it's been raining or a bird's shit inside it - apart from the guy I once saw who had his head in the clouds until he tried to put on a helmet that was half full of water.

I bought grab handles, and in addition to more secure grip for pillions, I lock my bag and helmet through the handle loop. I keep a combo lock fastened to the handlebar 100% of the time, (it's winded around so it is not loosely swinging). Then if I have to run inside a store I can just lock with this, otherwise I take everything except the tail bag (which is still locked to grab-handle).

Heck, I cant even slide it on the mirrors as I removed those and installed the CRG Arrow mirrors (which I love by the way). I would love to find a way to easily lock my helmet to the bike as I dont feel great walking away leaving an Arai helmet for someone to snag, or carrying it everywhere. Any ideas here would be greatly appreciated.

No question is dumb.!! It's dumb if you don't ask.

Here's what I use. I keep the helmet on the left mirror (as bike tilts to left on side stand), open the visor slightly & wrap it between the space that protects front of your mouth. Not sure if its the best option, but haven't got the helmet stolen till now.

But, carry the helmet most of the times if I have to go for a quick errand.

Thanks.

Or said asswipe decides to take a piss in it.

I've heard stories.
