    Well saturday night i went to a party that was being for my friends rugby team so i went over not the worst part of town but not the best just ok i guess. Well i parked the bike, locked the helmet on and put my disk lock on and headed in well i only came just for a lil to say high and make my rounds and get out. Well i stayed for about 2 hours or so and when i went to leave my helmet was gone! I thought maybe i was dumb or something and left it on the mirror thinking i was only gonna be a minute so i checked the bushes around my bike looking to see if it got knocked off .... nope! Started looking in cars with my lil flashlight to see if anyone had it in there car ... nope so when i was putting my flashlight back under the seat i saw my d-rings with the stap attatched was cut!!! What fuckin idiot i hope they actually attempt to ride with it and wreck ... why not just sit a seatbelt around your lap but not buckle it :noes: o well it was only a hjc that was about a year and a half old just kinda anoying but im checking ebay and been roaming the same neighborhood just not too pleased about it may have to accidentally run some lil wanna be gangster thug over if i see someone wearing it and hope that without the strap that it does them a lot of good:rl:

    cliffs: someone stole helmet me pissed it gonna rain

    That sucks man I'm always worried about this.

    Not that any of my helmets are even particularly expensive, but I just don't want to end up stuck somewhere because some retard stole my helmet.

    :rofl: that sucks dude.

    i've always wondered if people were dumb enough to cut the straps on the helmet and then steal a basically useless and worthless helmet.

    guess so...

    I always rest mine on the mirror. you would have to be a serious douche to steal a guy's helmet. Especially here where there are helmet laws.

    Ive been good so far. i will always leave shit just sitting on my bike. Jacket, backpack, helmet, etc.

    This is why i never ever leave my helmet on my bike, no matter how long i'm away from it.

    Can't you buy replacement straps? So even if they cut them off, spending X amount to replace the strap is << buying the new helmet. Practically a free helmet.

    Some people steal just to steal. I hate all thieves but those who steal just to steal should DIAF while being rapped in the ass with a splintery 2x4.

    .

    Especially if you've spent a decent chuck of on change on it. You never know what can happen to your helmet when you leave it out in the open. A bum could walk by and piss in it for all you know.

    I'm pretty sure he's referring to the fact that even if they did cut the straps off, that they just have to buy replacements straps to have a free helmet

    my helmets are hjc....they are cheap.....dont really care about them....if i ever get an expensive arai or shoei which i would like in the future.....that will definately come with me off the bike....but depending on where im going ill probably save the cheaper helmets for goin around down .....and expensive ones for days where i just plan to ride. So far i take my hjc everywhere with me except for the gym.....specially at school because we all know how retarded college kids are. and seein as california has a helmet law.....cant exactly just ride home worry free.
