Anybody have an extra one laying around? My bike didn't have one (2?) when I bought it.
You didn't work for the Old Bill (excuse the pun) did you? Like we all have handcuffs laying around our house, or are you just into a bit of bondage Bill! (Old Bill is Brit slang for Police)I use handcuffs if I don't want to take my helmet with me. One "hand" goes through the rear grab bar and the other goes through the helmet's D ring.
If they cut the straps, the helmet is worthless. I assume someone would want to steal the helmet for its value, not just to vandalize it.If you lock via d ring they will cut the straps for the helmet. Better to secure through chin guard
Afraid the 'brain-dead' that steal are the same 'brain-dead' without any common sense. Many years ago had both mine and my friends' helmets stolen when parked up in Amsterdam..........WTF ?If they cut the straps, the helmet is worthless. I assume someone would want to steal the helmet for its value, not just to vandalize it.
It is true about all US handcuffs using the same key. I am betting that the causal, opportunistic thief is not carrying a handcuffs key with him, just like those who use a cable lock are betting the thief is not packing a pair of wirecutters.
thanks for the reply. the cable is only attached under my passenger seat via a series of plastic clips; I don't think they would support the weight of the helmet at all. I also tried putting the loops around the metal locking post, but that didn't work either.you loop it through the D ring on the helmet strap (or the chinbar if it will reach) and then back onto the same clip as it starts from. helmet just dangles on the side.
