Why would anyone...
 
...hang a helmet from a motorcycle peg? ugh.

Fuck that shit. There are too many mean assholes out there these days, carry my helmet with me when I dismount. The last thing I want in my helmet is spit, a loogie, puke, urine, shit, a birds nest, bugs, rain, hail.....you get the picture.

Last night I walk outside to see what the dog is barking at. Drunk guy is pissing on huge front window of a hair salon across the street and screaming at the glass.

I'd rather that not be my helmet he's pissing in.

What prompted the question? I see them on mirrors often, but not on a peg.

Because they are an idiot and looking to have their chin strap melted by the exhaust of their Hypermotard.

Ask me how I know.

I sometimes hang mine on the rear peg while we grab a quick lunch on the road. Especially if the parking lot is wet or nasty. Otherwise, if it isn't on my head it's in the top case.

Mine's always with me - even when I'm just popping into the shops or standing at the ATM - I could be naked on the bike but as long as I've got a helmet on, the police won't stop me. I can't, and won't, ride without it.

Don't leave anything you can't afford to lose on the bike...

Uuuuummm..?
 
Why not ? I do my best not to leave my kid in the car.. but I don't care that much about my helmet.
FWIW I have never had either my kid or my helmet stolen

So if its muddy,the helmet goes on the passenger peg.........

Care to elaborate?
========================================

If I leave a helmet on a street bike its sitting on the seat with a cable lock through it,no exceptions.

(I did once insert a large banana slug into a friends casually placed helmet,but he found it before he put the helmet on.)

Ever think about how long it would take to find a helmet to buy on a Sunday morning while out on a ride?

These threads always have someone to whom nothing bad has ever happened, or will ever happen, and hence nothing bad will ever happen to anyone else.

Haha! Reading it I was thinking about how I hang mine on the passenger peg on my Hyper since i can't hang it on the mirror. I do make damn sure to hang it on the left side after having melted a hole in my Roadcrafter from throwing it over the seat.
