If you haven't got a spare helmet I've got a Shark size Large in the shed in a helmet bag I haven't worn it for at least 6-7 years but its perfect never dropped.
I had to walk all the way to megabikes and get another cheap helmet just to get back home as I live 50km from Dublin, could have asked a friend for a helmet as well but my mind was clouded with rage.

The guards/cops have no time/interest in stopping petty crime. . . jail time should be longer and involve more punishment.
There is a Garda car parked nearby almost every day but when I went up to them, they lowered the window by maybe 5cm and I was basically told to fuck off and go to the Garda station if I want to report something stolen. They sounded frustrated and disinterested.

You're right, never again I will leave it locked to the bike. Most people leave their helmet on the bike in there, so did I but they weren't interested in the cheap helmet I had.

Agree with you 100%, there is a famous neighbourhood nearby which needs cleansing, garda car parked there every day and they can't do anything.

Never leave anything in a topbox, and never leave a lid attached to your bike

Enough with the victim-blaming. You might mean well, but it's a bad mindset to have. Your point - which is from where genuine people are usually coming - is that we should be vigilant and careful, and there's nothing wrong with that. But locking your helmet to your bike does not invite or entitle someone to steal it, and that needs to be the norm.

by that logic, we should be able to leave the keys in the ignition too, and expect it to still be there when you get back.
Until thieves start getting their hands chopped off, I don't think the thieving fucks are going to change

I don't see how that is victim blaming to be honest. A naive mistake was made in leaving a valuable item dubiously attached to a motorcycle in a rough area. I'd rather a bit of harsh realism than to be told how unfortunate I was and there there, it'll all be fine.

Default Re: New helmet stolen

sad reality is that you can leave nothing to chance, ya have to be paranoid and mind yer own stuff in this country cos the little fucks get away with this shit regularly, even to get caught fuck all happens to them, this is why the cops don't give a fuck, do all the chasing, paperwork galore, go to court and the cunt gets off with a fine that he doesn't bother to pay !!! why would ya fookin bother.?

That station is as corrupt as the cunts in the Dail.
Mate of mine was recovering a stolen vehicle from there years ago and when he was in the compound he noticed another mates stolen Africa Twin sitting there.
He told the owner that the bike was in Store Street compound, even though the guards said it had not been recovered. Long story short, when the owner ,went to claim it he was told he could have it back for Ä7,000, the current market value. One of the coppers was keeping it for himself. They were forever claiming stolen vehicles for themselves and selling them on. It all went sour and a massive rift in the station happened which led to:
