r/motorcycles - how to carry spare helmet?

i might be picking up a lady friend this weekend on my bike, and i was wondering, how do you carry a spare helmet. i’ve checked all over my gixxer, and there’s no little metal clip like my klr has. so how do you street bike riders carry a spare helmet when needed?

r/motorcycles - how to carry spare helmet?

you gixxer doesn’t have a helmet hook under the pillion? most modern sportbikes have two hooks on the subframe, under the rear seat. you hook the helmet’s d ring into that clip, and then put the rear seat back on. i’ve heard on the gixxer’s it’s actually on the seat though, on the underside.

i carry the spare in my bag, or bungeed over the pillion.

damned thing sticks out too far if it’s on the side of the bike, and makes filtering/sharing somewhat harder.

my bonneville has a strap on the seat which i keep a padlock on to lock my helmet. i just lock an extra helmet on there if i gotta pick someone up.

i got one of these guys a few years back http://www.revzilla.com/product/joe-rocket-blaster-backpack

it’s very tall and the helmet pouch doesn’t fully close if you have other stuff in it. but the few times i went to school and it was raining i was glad to have it. the only annoying part is all the excessive straps and buckles, i come close to cutting most of them off many times.
