Plastic cover and about enough storage space for a wallet. Though you need to use a allen key to get the seat off every time so it's not very practical .

no thanks.

the single best option has been posted and reposted. the elastic nets are the way to go. you can hook to just about anything under the tail, even wrap it around and hook it to itself if you want to. not to mention that they aren't cost prohibitive, and you can throw em under the seat while riding anyway.

Just what a guy wants to know: that she spent ten years fucking every bad boy that gave her a moist-on and now she's "settling for him." Gee honey, thanks for letting me know how special I am to you.

HAHAHA i laughed at that one

This isn't the first time I've heard about the plastic nets for storage of things so i'm gonna look into them.

Only thing I am worried about is rubbing paint if I hang it from the D ring on the tail.

I use a bungee net to secure the helmet. I don't particularly like to do it if I have a backpack on as well because it doesn't allow me to stand up tall when at stoplights, but it's quite useful. I have a sargent seat on my bike and it's got little hooks that I can extend out from underneath that will serve as hook points for the bungee net. Very useful feature. Otherwise, you can use some hooking point on your bike like the frame or something.

You could also get a bag that has a helmet encasement, but I'd hate to wonder what would happen on a get-off.

I think you can use Stainless steel cable. The cable can be pulled forward, cinched tight around an object, but it can't be pulled out without unlocking and releasing the grippers.
