Alright, here's a hint.

When you stop to get gas, stop to do anything, get ready to get on the bike, get off the bike and move around for a moment...where do you put your helmet?

On top of the pile of water softner salt at the gas station.

It's usually right there next to the pump

More suggestions...?

Also, how many people have had their helmets fall on the ground because
of lack of somewhere to hang the helmet?

i don't take my helmet off as i wear a modular.. if i do take it off, i hook my keys to the d ring. if i leave it locked to my bike, somebody will piss in it. but i have been know at times to leave it on the bike in which case it fits nicely over my mirrow. i've never had a helmet fall off my bike. But if i was the type, a nice little hook in a convient place would probably work. it should be machined brass or stainless and cost less than $10 delivered for me to buy it.

Well, this will be very conveniently placed and initially it will be plastic and more than 10 bucks shipped 'cause it costs more to get it made here in the US.

I could go Chinese I assume but don't really feel like dealing with them and all the upfront costs until I see if it sells or not.
Yes, price may be a factor but frankly, I would have bought one after the first time I dropped my helmet and, mine's cheap at around $130.

My helmet generally goes on my right mirror on my Vstrom and is pretty secure there, but the one issue I do run into is if after I pump gas I want to push my bike over to a parking spot, the way the helmet sits on the mirror keeps me from turning my bars left. That means I usually have to put it on the seat which leaves it very vulnerable. I've started to carry one of those nets stretched out over my back seat just so I can slide the helmet under there and it will secure. Of course if I have anything back there, that doesn't work.

The other big issue with the mirror is on a long trip, it can become quite nasty with bugs and then all that stuff ends up inside your helmet.

So yeah, I would definitely be interested in a $10 device that gave me a quick and easy place to put my helmet while I'm filling up and keep it from hitting the ground.

Yeah, it's not secure on the mirror on my Vee with Aprilia mirrors and I hate it touching all the metal on the handlebars.

I did the net thing and it tore up my factory handles :(

Not to hijack a vendor post, but since this really isn't a vendor post YET, I have to question you about the neighborhoods where you park your bike

I just put my helmet on top of the gas pump. No chance of it falling off.

When I lived in Spain I saw all the people lock their helmets to the wheels (on the ground) and that's the first thing I thought of because there are lots of stray dogs there
