NSW Helmet Stolen in Sydney CBD

Discussion in 'Stolen Bike Register' at netrider.net.au started by jungleboy, Feb 20, 2012.

  1. I had my Shoei helmet stolen off my bike yesterday afternoon on Clarence Street, Wynyard. My bike - Suzuki TU250X comes with a helmet hook/lock but it looks like a good yank undid it. I was gone for 30 mins max.



    Just a cautionary post if you have the same ride as me. Or a really good helmet.

  3. Very rarely do I leave my helmet on my bike without being able to see my bike.

    Too many tools out and about.

  8. The helmet lock never seemed very safe but I thought it would be enough of a deterrant. Apparently not. Expensive lesson. It's still a great ride.

  9. What sort of helmet lock do you use?

  15. I don't leave my helmet with my bike. Even though its a pain to carry around I'm too paranoid.

    Got a new one yet?

  17. Must suck to realise your helmet is more desirable than your bike.

  19. That's a bit harsh, mate. I bet a lot of us have got a Shoei already, so its really equally desirable if you think about it.
