Ummm don't take offense, but have you never removed your seat???? Under the seat are two hooks, one on either side to hang a helmet... Once it's on, and the seat is latched (which of course needs the key to release) nobody is gonna "steal" your lid... Well, unless they want it REAL bad...sometimes i see people with an extra helmet hanging like off the side of their bike...how do they do that? and when i see parked bikes...i see that they leave their helmet in the same spot...cant it be stolen? or is there a way you lock it up?
oh wow...i see! i just went out and looked at it...never realized thats what it was for. so its fairly "safe" to leave my helmet like that if i go in the store or something? is that what most you guys do?
Yeah, it prevents some theft but isn't really too hard to steal. A new strap is just a couple of dollars - and if it's a 500$ helmet...I never lost one either, but I have a buddy who had his lid on the helmet straps under the seat, and some asshole cut the strap off his helmet.
