You, Your Motorcycle and Your Helmet - Now What?

How often do you ride up to a gas station, take your helmet off (more and more gas stations are demanding that you do that anyway, the bastards) to fill'er up and then you don't know what to do with your helmet. Most people hang their helmet on their mirrors, but often they'll come banging down, and on top of that they move the mirror from their "perfect" position.

Or you place your helmet on your saddle, which as we all know, means your helmet will go trashing onto the ground, usually 1 out of 3 times. The other issue with helmets, especially when you don't have a big topcase or panniers to store them, is how do you tie them up to your bike when you are off doing whatever you came to do?

Here are two solutions, and to make life a bit more difficult, they both have the same name: Helmet Hook.

Helmet Hook #1

Helmet Hook

The first helmet hook I want to introduce to you has been created to sit at the edge of your handlebars. Both sides can be used, and basically involve you unscrewing the handlebar weight and placing the ring before screwing the weight back in. In other words, a 10 second job (but for me more likely half a day and some parts missing, but that 's me).

Helmet Hook

The Helmet Hook has a nice hole in the loop that allows you to place a padlock to secure your helmet to your handlebar. The hook doesn't intervene anyway with the operation of the motorcycle.

Helmet Hook

Simple and efficient. The only drawback is if it starts raining. There's nothing to protect the inside, and riding with a damp or wet inside helmet is not fun.

Helmet Hook #2

The second Helmet Hook is based on a slider that is placed on your bike's steering column on the side with cable ties. The price includes the three ties, so you'll not need to go looking for them.

It's held on three places so should hold quite well. The hook itself is made out of injection molded nylon.

There are 5 different colors to choose from, so you can try to match the color of your bike; black, yellow, orange, red or white.

You can hang your helmet on both sides of your bike.

The advantage here is that your helmet should be pretty well protected from rain, but there is no holes for padlocks, so you need to padlock it if you are worried that someone might steal your lid.
