When you stop to get something to eat, do you bring your helmet with you? What if you go to a "Bike Night" at the local hangout?

Do any of you leave your helemt on your bike, use the helmet holder ect...? Sometimes I'll see 2 Arai replica helmets hangiing off a bike and all I see is a $1000 being held on by a chin strap. I'm always worried some punk is gonna come by and snag my lid.

I carry mine, unless I know everyone. Even some of the people I know can't be trusted!

Tough call.

At the local "Bike Night" I tend to carry it with me since I don't know most of the people at the bar.

For local Ducati club gatherings/events, we trust and know most members so we leave gear openly.

Go with your gut. Otherwise lock it up.

you'd have to walk on down to the local 711 and get some disinfectant and flood the inside of the helmet then flush really good before putting it on.

I use a braided stainless cable and a small padlock to secure the helmet. Keeps the helmet from falling and deters the casual thieves.

Cable rolls up and fits in a pocket. I got the cable from Aerostich (www.aerostich.com) but I am sure you can find other sources.
