I thought it was a little odd that I never saw any helmets on any of the bikes near where I park, but I guess I now know why. Just a note to other fellow new riders, don't leave your helmet locked to your bike using its helmet lock (if you have one) for long periods of time. They're pretty ineffective and there's nothing worse than coming back to a damaged bike (in my case) and realising that you can't even ride home because some ... person... has stolen your helmet. Sadly, I just bought a brand new tinted visor for it yesterday, which was stolen along with it. Anyway, an experience isn't worth having if you don't learn anything.... So what do most people do to secure things on their bike like bags and helmets?
