Do you guys usually leave your helmet with your bike or take it in with you?

I usually leave it with the bike, but it depends where I am or what the weather is like.

I tend to leave mine locked on the bike. generally I find I bump stuff in stores and so forth when I carry it. At work work or when rain is likely I always take it in with me.

Depends on where I am. If Im at a friends or something and its not raining I keep it locked to the bike. If Im somewhere else that I dont know I usually take it in with me.

I always, always take it with me. But I don't have a helmet lock so that might be part of it :D. And even if I did, I would take it with me. Too many bad thoughts of someone walking along and pouring coke into your helmet.

I always carry mine aroun too. If I go in a store, I usually grab a cart and put my helmet and jacket in the main basket and use the little fold-out-thingie to hold whatever I am buying. Get some pretty funny looks this way.:D

I always take it with me. I don't have a helmet lock and it would be too easy for someone to snag it, even if they didn't really want it, just to be an ass.

Take it with you. Once upon a time, many years ago, I had been out riding and stopped at a "quickie mart" - you know the type of place I'm sure - to get some odd or end. Well, I pulled up to the door, right up front, with the wheel practically in the door. There was a car with "kids" parked on my left, who gave me the eye as I pulled up. I took off the helmet put it on the left mirror and walked in the store. I walked on in and realized that I had left my wallet in the trunk under the bike seat. So I turned around and went back out the same door, which had not closed yet, since I only gone a step or two inside. Well guess what? Those creep kids had snatched my helmet and were hauling ass out of the parking lot. By the time I got my bike started it was just too late to catch them.

TAKE YOUR HELMET WITH YOU !!! It can disappear in the blink of an eye.

Most of the time I lock it on my bike cause it is a pain in the ass to carry it with me. When I carry it with me I tend to bang it into things.
Most of the time I am only gone for a few minutes cause I am out for a ride and not out to be loafing in a store.

I usually lock my helmet on my bike. Unless I am at work or I will be inside for a long time.

You have to consider how helmets are constructed. everything is replaceable....if a part wears it is intended to be replaced. Thus if you were to somehow get the d ring bent, the whole piece can be replaced....thus, any thief that wants your lid simply cuts the D strap and gets a new one for $8. There goes your $200-$600 in a jiffy!!

Take it with you!! In stores....take care if it!!!

I take my helmet with me, infact i dont even take it off. I walk around the store with it on. Hmm...maybe thats why i get these strange stares.....

LOL j/k

No i always take my helmet with me, unless for some reason theres no place to store it, like maybe a restaraunt. Im very possessive of my helmet, its an Arai-Rx7RR, hell if im gonna let some punk scratch/bump it by leaving it on the bike.

i have a helmet lock, but either i'm not smart enough to angle the D into the lock or its just too small for my helmet cause i can't get it to work. and i spend too much money on it to leave it there just to be stolen so i carry mine at all times!
