Is it ok to ride w/ a helmet locked in the rear seat helmet lock. I will be riding from ny to philly and want to bring my girls helmet along w/ me locked in the rear seat hinge lock mechanism thingy.. Good Idea or Bad idea??
gotta agree there. i've done this a few times. helmet does not flop around at all and there doesn't seem to be any paint-wear on the bike. so i would say occasionaly is fineevilbologna said:Really its not that big of a problem. Sure its not the best way, but I've done it a few times. I wouldnt keep it there, cause it will rub through the paint eventually. But once in awhile? Sure why not. Mine doesnt bang around or flop in the wind.
I'll say the same thing again, I've certainly had plenty of debris hit the helmet while I was wearing it, what's the differencePaPa-G said:OOORRR you can do what the squidders do.
You can strap the helmet to the grab bar, just as you would putting it on your head.
If you strap it the same way, it's not going anywhere b/c it's not supposed to fly off your head.
You can pull it pretty tight so it won't move very much.
Only problem is you still risk debris hitting it.
Well...that's...ummm....responsible, I guess.jonesdb said:I use the helmet bag from my shoei to put over the girlfriends helmet when I transport it in the helmet lock, keeps the debris off it and the bag is soft enough it wont scratch the plastics. I have friends that always have a helmet straped to the side for themselves in case they get a sudden urge for stunting.
