What does everyone use for a Helmet Lock?

I bought the "universal" one from HD that clamps to the crash bar but the clamp seems to be too small to go around the bar. Also with lowers there's not much room for it any way. Curious whats out there and what works best.

I got one off the auction site, works pretty good. A small lock with a longer small cable to place through the D ring. With that being said, it will not keep someone who has all tools to break it, but nothing will do that.

Normally I leave it in the Tour Pac since I don't haul lots of stuff. Need be Jacket in one saddle bag, helmet gloves and etc in the tour pac and the other saddle bag is the vest most of the time.

If I am just running in for a few minutes I just leave it on the back rest. Anything longer than that I would take it inside with me.

If I am going in a store or restaurant I carry it in to absorb some AC. If I am going to walk around and dont want to carry it i cable lock it to the bike. Cable through the sleeve of my jacket and through the chin bar on the helmet. If you use a half helmet it fits in the side bag or put the lock at the D-ring.

I use a Kryptonite KryptoFlex Key Cable lock - I put the helmet on my right floorboard and lock it to the crash bar. This is the lock - The 2' 2" 15mm one:

Drops over the edge of the saddle bag, and the strap buckle drops into the open end. Close the saddle bag lid and its all locked down.
