Passenger Helmet?

How do you guys carry your helmet for a passenger if you go to pick them up?

The RR has the helmet strap but it looks pretty janky... the helmet kinda hands and swings.. not very snug.. what do you guys do?

Last time I had to carry a spare helmet was probably 4 years ago but at the time I used a backpack. I then just left it at her place and fetched it when I dropped her off.

'04 Candy Blue CBR 600RR
Yoshi RS5 Full System
BMC Air Filter
PCIII usb
Arrow rearsets
Renthal 14/46 sprockets with 520 chain
Emission system fully removed
APR Racing brake pads
A few other minor mods that I can't remember now.

I'm not sure if this is an ignorant comment but I have an 05 and I haven't seen a helmet strap or anything that I can attach my helmet to....do all hondas have this strap and if so where is it that I haven't seen it? I've just been using the cargo nets to hold my spares.

I use my backpack since I don't have any hooks on my tail anymore. Cargo net works well too.

I have a HJC, and I just hook the D-ring of the helmet strap to the hook under the seat. It's the hook on the left side that the black strap usually hooks onto. I hope I explained that okay. I do this quite often acually.

Apparently in Manitoba we cannot have a helmet off the side of the bike. Has to be strapped on the passenger seat. So i'm told anyway. I carry mine in a backpack anyway.

if youre still lookin for the strap, try checking the compartment where the tools are stored behind the fairing. it should be in there. thats where mine was.
