Passenger Helmet Holder

Hi all,

Just bought my 2016 Monster 821 Dark and loving it. Maybe too much, been riding around town when it's been 30 degrees. Waiting for spring to actually arrive here in Boston.

Anyways, I am looking to get a helmet lock/ helmet holder for my bike. I know it comes with the little wired helmet holder under the seat, but I'm not sure you can ride around with a spare helmet on it.

any suggestions ?

something like this, so I can go pick up the wife.

Does no one else ride passengers?

I hope I'm not doing the bike some injustice by having a passenger. Lol. Although now that I think about it, I've never seen a ducati with 2 people on it at once.

I normally put the helmet in my rucksack...

Could you use a mini cargo net?

I will use a mini cargo net if I can't find something better. Hopefully there's something better out there.

A lot of backpacks will fit a helmet with a towel or something wrapped around it to protect it. I do it almost every week and just have her wear the backpack (and helmet) after picking her up. Super easy. Also it shouldn't hurt your bike but you can do things to make the ride better if you have passengers often. (Just do a search) tire pressure, and suspension adjustments will help
