If you’ve ever met me at an event, you may have noticed that I travel light. By that I mean no chains, pins, rings, etc. Heck, I don’t even like loose change in my pockets. With a mindset like that, the last thing I want to haul around with me is a helmet! But what do you do with the thing? Of course, if I’m riding a bagger that day, the lid goes under a lid. But since I’m usually on a sleek custom of some sort, I’m left with either carrying a helmet around (not likely), or leaving it on the bike and hoping some idiot doesn’t walk off with it.
But not anymore thanks to the Helmet Secure! This little chrome gizmo ($59.99), which fits 7/8″-, 1″-, and 1-1/4″-diameter handlebars (just use the proper rubber insert), gets attached to bars via its clamp base and supplied Allen key. Once installed, this mounting system becomes inaccessible when the attached cable is locked into position. You run the loose end of this precoiled steel cable through the face or straps of your helmet. The cable then gets locked into the base of the Helmet Secure via the supplied key, of which you get two.
Now, if I can just find a way to get the ignition and locks to all work on the same key, I can get rid of all this metal in my back pocket! AIM
