I store my helmet cable under the gas door for quick access. Anyone else do this?

What other methods do you all use to lock your helmet to your bike?

That is a GREAT idea! I generally don't lock my helmet and every time I've wanted/really should have - I was too lazy to pull it out of the "glove box" under the right side cover. I still need to lube those grommets up with some silicone spray. Only had this bike for a a month, just hit 1,000 miles - love it!

Thanks,

I set my helmet on the seat and strap it around the back rest bar at the very least to it is attached.


I will not use their helmet lock as i do not want my helmet on the paint. I can secure both my wife and my helmets by setting them on the mirrors and running this cable through the D-rings and handle bars . it also fits inside the gas cap door along with my registration that is inside a baggy and stuffed into the crack. I also have the inside of that area covered in that rubber material with holes everywhere to protect the paint and no rattles. Very happy with this set up

I agree that side cover is a pain. And the design for the factory lock does leave the helmet dangling on the paint and really close to a hot exhaust. For now it works in a pinch. I'll have to invest in a cable lock eventually.

That gas door isn't huge but will fit a few things in a pinch. I even stuck my sena 30K unit in there after detaching from the helmet.

On a bike this big it would have been nice to have a waterproof lockable compartment that is easily accessible. The under seat storage is a pain to get to and water gets in. but storage is storage and its better than nothing. I just put everything in zip lock baggies.
