if you pop the rear seat off, there are little tabs on each side. Just hooke the metal rings on the helmet srap to them and put the rear seat back on. jsut keep a hold of the helmet when putting it on and taking it off, ive almost droped mine a couple times. :devils

yup that's how I secure my helmet too, but it is not suggested to ride your bike with a spare hanging this way....

which brings up another point I was curious about (and kind of ties into the thread) what's the best way to get around with a spare helmet? just strap it to a backpak?

I think the best and safest way to do it is using those helmet nets.
I used them for transporting helmets more securely and with peace of mind.

or like you mentioned, maybe strap on to the backpack (I think Icon has his kind) or if you have a big enough pack that you can fit the whole helmet in.

yeah that movie was really awesome. those things tripped me out

The under seat tabs work OK for me, but I sometimes just strap the helmet to the strap that runs across the pu$$y pad. Holds on a little tighter @ hi speed.
