Helmet Lok

Post  holdenman on Tue 28 Jun 2011, 5:40 pm

While Reading through a recent Australian Road Rider, i came accross these helmet locks that could be nearly used for any purpose.
I ordered 2 and they arrived the next day.
So far we have used them a couple of times and a very easy to use. 3 digit combination which you choose when ordering and can be changed when
ever you feel necessary
If im only going a short distance i slide the helmet of the mirror and put the lock around the stem
if im going for a while i sit the helmet on my pillion peg and lock it through the V

I'm on my second one (the first one got lost somewhere near Mansfield in Victoria). I reckon they're great for trips where you can just get off the bike and go into a cafe/coffee shop/pub etc and simply lock the helmet to the bike. I use the Ventura rack as too much locking to the mirror stem was giving me concerns that I'd be needing to send them to Gus for a repaint. Smile

I'm not sure I'd leave it on the bike all day in Woden - might be asking for trouble.

They make a second version that comes with a short lanyard for, an extra $10, I think the figure was.

I can never get my HJC to sit porperly when its locked under the seat and its a pain to get off again. Think its a HJC thing.
I have never locked my lid but then again I dont often park in the city. When parked here I use the pillion peg in the folded position. Dont like chucking them on the mirrors and I've seen one fall off when the mirror moved.

If I had a need I'd get one of these locks I reckon.

this looks incredibly useful the one problem with the bandit is that you cannot access the seat release if you have panniers on the bike and therefore cannot lock the helmet in place.

i know the obvious solution would be to take the pannier off and then put it back on but this would be so much simpler.
