    Helmet Lock Question

    I have been using the helmet locking devise that mounts under the license plate frame and holds two helmets. This lock utilized the "D" rings to lock the helmets. I really enjoy being able to lock the helmet(s) to the bike, as I hate carrying it around. This system has worked well for me!

    I just recently purchased a Nolan N90 without realizing that there would be no "D" rings (the N90 uses the Nolan microlock strap) with which to lock the helmet to the bike. Any one out there find away to resolve this issue? If so, I'd sure appreciate knowing how you have accomplished it.

    When I had a Nolan, I purchased a Pacsafe helmet bag that can be locked to the bike. It also protects the helmet and you can put your gloves in there as well.

    You could also find a shortish (say ~12") length of plastic-coated wire cable with loops in both ends. Open the helmet, run the cable between the mandible and the cranium portions of the helmet, and put the loops through a ring on the locking device.

    For a variation on David's solution you can also look at gun cable locks, e.g. http://www.amazon.com/Master-Lock-10.../dp/B000LX86RU

    Using that kind of lock you can lock the helmet anyplace on the frame.

    As always a wealth of good information out there!

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll research and I'm sure at least one of these ideas will fit my needs.

    Google 'helmet lock extender' and you will see a flat steel 'T' shaped piece with a hole at the end of the stem. I had to use a file to remove a bit of material from each edge of the stem before it would slip through the end of my Nolan's clasp. I leave it attached to the bikes wire lock so it is always there when needed.
