My state has no helmet law. I always hang it on the giant ass handle bar mirror, clutch side and close the shield, it keeps it dry. hanging it on the peg would fill it with water if it rains? does it ever rain where you are? Not to mention, my boots are on my pegs sometimes, and they have dirt, mud, dog shit, chicken shit, and who knows what other sort of nasty E. coli vehicle that I would prefer to not be in my helmet on them..
