Store gloves, shades, Phone and smokes in it, makes a great manly Purse.

Just take it with you and it's one less thing to worry about.

I clip my keys to the D-rings on the chin strap, toss my gloves into the lid, as well as my work phone when I'm on-call. Also works to carry beer to the register when I stop off at the store on my way home. Holds two 24oz bottles comfortably.

I've got a big head. So what?

I've also always got a camera attached to it, so there's no way I'm leaving my $500 helmet and a $300 camera sitting around where I can't see it.

I occasionally leave it on the seat if it's a pretty safe place, otherwise I lock it up in a saddlebag or if those are full ill use a helmet lock. Much prefer stuffing it in a saddlebag as its about as safe as it gets.

Generally If there are a lot of bikers around I feel safe to leave it but if there's gonna be the possibility of tweakers or crackheads I'll stash/lock it.

Like most people said just take it with you. Occasionally i will lock the helmet to the bike like in the video. But I wouldnt leave my helmet like this overnight, if im going in to a restaurant to eat or stopping at the park for a bit ill trust it. But i still like to be able to see the bike and helmet.

Always take mine inside with me. I NEVER set it on the seat. It's too EZ to get knocked off. I set it on the deck. Sitting it on Asphalt is way better than it landing on asphalt!
