How/where do you securely put your helmet on the panigale?

(I just picked up a new 959 but this'll apply to both 959 and 1299)

When you don't wanna hold your helmet whilst ducking into the shops to grab a few things, how do you securely put your helmet on the bike?

On my old bikes I hooked the helmet chin strap D-rings under the key-removable seat then clipped the seat back in to keep it nicely locked up, but there's nowhere under the rear 959 seat to do this

if the helmet is expensive and you can't afford to lose it and you are in a questionable location, you should secure the helmet with your hand.

as a last resort, i will use a cable lock but put the helmet on the ground tucked away so no one can see it from afar but beware of heat from the bike.

but honestly, i would never leave my helmet behind; i would rather not go where i am going.

I either leave mine on the bike tank or take it in to where ever I am going, but my Reevu helmet is not a highly desirable helmet, and plus I just assume someone needs it more than I do if they take a super used helmet, I'll chance a single ride home sans helmet for the convenience, and grab one of my other helmets for the next ride.. Do not think I am ok with someone stealing my helmet, I would be pissed, but its a good reason to get a new helmet..

there is no location.

I went and bought a D ring set from home depot that is used for picture frames and drilled it in.

Unfortunately, Ducati didnt think of including that

I definitely don't leave gear on my bike, you shouldn't trust anyone, anywhere.

I won’t leave my helmet anywhere, I’ll carry it with me. I won’t even park my 1299 somewhere if it’s out of my eye sight.

I take my helmet with me and then use it as a basket when i go shopping.

Then i stuff everything in my jacket and look absurdly overweight on the way home.
Never big silly things.

But still.

I use a helmet lok and run it through the d rings and then through the openings in the top triple. Helmet nestles nicely behind the wind screen.
