I actually used the one on the bike before and it worked OK! Just check your owners manual for instructions on how to use it. I think it is the worst helmet holder I have ever seen and think Honda should be ashamed of themselves but it can and does work!

The key word on the original question I think was secure! I have seen several solutions for this on this forum, you will just have to do some searching or give the Honda one a try!

I use a disk lock and a short cable looped around the chin bar. Then the lock is affixed to the front disk rotor.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

Perfect place to leave some bodily secretions , or bird poo, or rain - Im not sure I would use that -

Is there a reason you cant take it with you ? Ive heard too many storeis of folks leaving thier helmet secured to thier bike only to come back to a strap still secured to thier bike. Most resturants etc. can and do make accomidations for helemts, I have made it my practice to never leave it on my bike - knowing my luch someone will cause it harm or play a mean spirited joke on it ---

Try a pistol lock through the chin bar and grab rail... works for me.

I use an old ski lock that I had lying around. It's basically a thin cable combination lock that "zips" out kind of like those lanyard badge holder thingys. I put the helmet on the handlebars, loop the lock through the chin, and around the handlebar between the clamps. My cable lock is about 4', which can even allow me to run it through my jacket arm, helmet, and handlebar so I don't have to carry all that crap wherever I go. It would probably take about 5 minutes with a pair of safety scissors to get thru it, but I've never had any problems with doing that.

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.

That Bar Ender is a good idea in a decent world, but I can only imagine some prankster pouring a little capsule of stinkbomb liquid in the upside down helmet.
I use a cable lock to secure my helmet and jacket to either the grabbar or the center of the handlebar. Helmet sits on tankbag in normal upright position so rain, or bird poop is not an issue.
I got my cable lock from the British magazine "Fast Bikes" it was inside the plastic baggie the mag comes in.

I'm using one of these license plate locks. So far, so good.

I copied frikjmaser's idea from post 32 and fabbed my own from a piece of aluminum bar stock.
