Panniers and top box The best place to secure your helmet is in big, lockable panniers or a top box if you are lucky enough to have them.

Storing your Motorcycle Gear Store it out of the sun, in a climate-controlled area, I prefer an enclosed case where bugs and dust won’t get on it, but some people use shelves and those can be fine too.
