Where do you put your helmet?

Hi guys,
Just a fun poll. Where do you hang or store your helmet at home or at work, and would you ever buy a product (stand, hanger, etc) to use to store your helmet?

At home I put helmet on a closet shelf or leave it in top case on bike, At work I put it the top case, on trips sometimes put it on mirror if only be away from bike a few minutes , other times on trips I take it indoors with me or put it in top case if not full. With a ratcheting chin strap there's no D-Ring to lock on . I have three different helmets & wear according to distance to hide & temperature. Winter & long trips fullface module, Around town in warmer weather 3/4 size , temperatures above95* short trip 1-3 miles half helmet which is used the least. The Nolan 3/4 helmet with full shield & flip down tinted inside visor most used. The fullface module is definitely the quietest & with earplugs is fantastic for touring. . " That's my Two cents about helmets. ". I wear a helmet 100% of the time while riding even though in Texas it's not required.

The Arai helmet sits on a shelf in a cabinet in the laundry room (just inside the entrance to the garage).

And I put the cloth cover the helmet came in, back over the helmet after each use.

Always wear a helmet and protective gear, even on 95 degree days.

No, I don't think I would use a stand or hanger, I think the helmet would more likely get scratched compared to how I store it now.

At work it just sits on my desk. At home it goes on a shelf in the helmet bag. In the winter it goes back in the original box.

At home, it sits on my coffee table. At work, it sits on my file cabinet. I don't think I'd be interested in yet another piece of furniture.

I have a fancy Italian coat rack that came out of an office building. Looks like modern art. It has a round flat top. Perfect for sitting the helmet on top.
My riding jacket goes on one the hooks and my gloves are on the stairs.

i have a wall mounted black wire shelf that i put my helmet on... i leave it up there with the visor up so it can air out and dry through the bottom. i also have a 10' USB wire run up the wall to the shelf so i can charge the bluetooth after every ride.

I have a spare room/office near the front door. I have dedicated shelves for helmets/shoes/gloves/accessories and I hang clothing in the closet right next to it.

At work I have an permanently empty desk next to mine so I usually put my helmet and gloves there and just hang my jacket on the back of my chair. We have a small locker room, but the lockers neither fit my helmet nor my jacket unless I cram it in there.

Mine sits on a bench in the laundry room which happens to be right next to where I park the moto each night, as do my gloves.
