Securing your helmet...

Now that the weather is getting nicer, I知 going to start riding more. My problem is my 250 has a helmet lock but my 300 does not. How do you guys secure your helmet on the 300/500?

I just use a heavy duty rubber coated bicycle wire lock. I just wrap it around the handle bars base cause it stays coiled up it fits perfect and I can even loop it through the helmets face shield. I can even loop it through my back pack loops and my whole jackets arm sleeves if I want. Its quite versatile. and when I have my motorcycle in the bed of my truck I can even take it off and pass it through the rear tire and lock it to my trucks bed loop tie down spots so no one can steal my ride.

Has anyone ever had their helmet stolen?
I'm still just slinging mine over the handlebar without locking it.
Mind you my helmet is a $60 Daytona 3/4 and doesn't look flashy. If it's stolen, meh.

I'll probably keep doing this till it does eventually get stolen, then I'll wise up and get a lock. But just curious if this ever happened to anyone and if so, how much was your helmet worth?

Could you all post some links to helmet locks and maybe some pics of where/how you installed it on the Rebel?

Ive been using one of these for years, you just use the handlebars or anyplace you can clip. It痴 easy to carry with you on your pants or pocket.

My helmet is a modular helmet with Bluetooth and I値l be away from my bike for 10+ hours a day so I知 concerned with just leaving it on the handles. I just put it on the handles when I go into the gas station but not all day while at work.

Good point. I do bring my helmet in and leave it in my office while at work. It's left hanging on the handlebars when i'm doing errands/shopping where i'm away from the bike an hour at a time.

I use a master cable lock. loop it through the frame and then through the face opening. long enough to do 2 helmets if you ever have a passenger.

bought it at my local hardware store, but obviously can get on amazon or anywhere else.
