Coonass? Love it!

Yeah, I thought of doing that too but that meant drilling and I wasn't too keen on the idea.

Awesome :)

Let me ask you a question 'cause I had a few other ideas about mounting stuff on cases.

Do people that do adventure riding and have the "square" type, metal cases usually not mind drilling
their cases and how about structural integrity and waterproofing?

That's one thing I like about the Hepco & Becker Gobi cases as they have some accessories
but I didn't look enough into them to find out if they had to be drilled or the cases were ready for it.

Same thing with the Givi Trekkers. I was at Givi the other day and forgot to ask if the luggage racks
screwed into the top of the case or not.

Laugh

most riders will drill holes it their aluminum boxes to add accessories... oil bottles, gas bottles, tool tubes etc. It took me a few years before I drilled holes in my Zegas cases... I always had the fear of holes creating a stress cracking and walking... but no problems ever appeared.
I add jbweld to the back of the nuts to stop them from loosening...

Alright guys, here are some early samples for you to look at

with permission to use the pics since I didn't take those but wanted to use them because the person that took them had a bigger selection of bikes to use.

More pictures coming.

The purpose of the Helmet Hook is simple.
Put your helmet somewhere, where your helmet will be:

Out of the way
Safe from scratches
Safe from falls that will scratch it and possible break something
Kept close to you and not forcing you to turn around to look for
some mounting spot on the frame of the bike, or your luggage cases, or your bungee net and so on.

Putting it on the mirrors usually means you have to later readjust them.
On the handlebars is not a good place as they usually slide off, ESPECIALLY if you move the bars.
The tank is not flat nor is the seat if you're on the side stand.

Using the built in or aftermarket seat locks always puts in next to either a hot engine or metal parts which can and probably WILL scratch your helmet.

You don't want to lock it to the wheel as it can get dirty, dogs WILL pee in it (I've always worried about this in Spain with all the stray dogs) and at the same time, why bend down when you can simply hang it at the END of your handlebar where it is the FURTHEST away from the bike, thus minimizing the risk of the helmet getting banged up against the bike.

My helmet is cheap but I've already had it roll down the street 5-6 in the 4 weeks I've had it. I can only imagine what you guys will think that have $700 lids!

I also use it when I go shopping. I come out with some grocery bags and while I'm getting ready to ride (opening cases), I need somewhere to put the bags.
The ground works but may be dirty, so I just hang them on the helmet hook. It is very strong and you can also turn the hook facing the bike or facing out.

It should fit most standard bar ends and hand guards that screw into the end of the handlebars.

More pictures to follow...

I've also used it to hang the electrical cords on it to keep them off the ground while I'm charging my batteries.

My site is being built and I should have ordering capability within just a few days and it will be paypal which also takes most credit cards.

Till then, if you'd like to order, just pm me with all your info (name, address, phone-if you'd like and if there are questions-and your paypal email address) and I'll send you a payment request.

You can also pay cash, check, money order or anything else we can think of.

The site will have other products that I'll bring to the market, AND, I will also sell some VERY powerful flashlights ideally suited for bike riders, AND, I am getting ready to import LED LIGHT BARS for bikes, off road vehicles and other vehicles and also some LED bike lights.

So, check the site and check it often in the next month or two.

So, without further ado, here are some pics of the helmet hook.














You guys are welcome to send pics to friends or post on other forums and link directly to the picture location as long as you leave the credits and logo on the picture.

Price will be $17.95 shipped in the continental US and add $3 for international shipping.

Inmate price is $13.95 with the above conditions.

Two hooks for $25 shipped (prices may change/go up later) but for now, this will be it and two hooks for an inmate will be $22 shipped.

If you order from the site, let me know your inmate name.

Also, anyone wants to do group buys, resell locally or internationally, contact me here or through the site at www.EXTUFF.biz

The FIRST person to order one from ADV gets his/hers FREE!
I will post this on the V-Strom International forum and Stromtroopers forum so the same thing applies there.
Look for the posts.

Thanks

George
