I can cram a system helmet into the side cases of my ST13 (if I crack the chin guard open) but that is about the only bike I've had in 30 years that I could do that. Helmets always end up in my top box.
The previous generation wee had a great top box with a shape that is optimized for two full-face helmets. Most ADV riders who use their bikes locally for commuting, tend to leave the side cases off on a day-to-day basis, and only use them for touring. In addition, the wee top case will hold my 15.6 laptop on my daily commute.
