    ZTechnik« License Plate Bracket Helmet Locks - sold by National Cycle

    Has anyone purchased and installed the ZTechnik« License Plate Bracket Helmet Lock on their TTSE?

    It looks like it would be a good looking Farkle to add.  I personally don't like the helmet locks provided under the seat.  It's actually made for a BMW, but looks like it should fit the TTSE alright??

    Looks like a nice product.  Here's what I use: https://lidlox.com/products/4062-b.  What I like is that on an all-day ride I can hang my helmet directly above the Powerlet outlet in order to recharge my Sena communicator, since the one on the left side of the engine is the only one that's always powered.  And the helmet is also hidden by my half-cover as well.  I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to lock a new Neotec 2, since it doesn't have a traditional buckle...

    Thanks for the info!  I plan to add some accessories to my bike over the next several months to get ready for a lot of riding "hopefully" next spring/summer after I retire in March 2019.

    Doesn't hanging the helmet upside down create a problem if / when it rains.   I use a bicycle security cable, with combination lock, through the rear hand rails and through the chin of the helmet.    The helmet sits on the rear seat in the correct orientation so if it does rain no water gets inside.  I think the bicycle cable cost about ú4.00 from a DIY store.   The cable is long enough so the I can also leave my jacket secured to the bike by running the cable through the sleeve.   Boots and trousers go in the side panions.

    Etitanic, my thoughts exactly. But it has been rather warm in the UK of late. Maybe the idea of walking round minus pants isn't that strange over their.  :745: Just saying.  :821: :158:

    Ok jokers,  :745: :745:

     "other closes to walk round in"  S**t, why didn't I think of that. :138:  No wonder I keep getting strange looks.   :005:

    Yes.   It has been unusually warm over in the UK these last two months and we are not use to it, so when I get to a venue and want to spend some time having a wonder round looking at the display I have to take off my riding jacket and Trousers or die from heat exhaustion.   Usually, but it is not compulsory, especially if riding in France,   I will have a tee shirt and sports shorts underneath.  Arrive at the venue,  strip off the riding gear and secure it to the bike and wonder round feeling relatively cool.   :062:
