Guardian helmet lock

I was wondering if anyone is using the Guardian helmet lock on a 2012 650. Thanks, Kevin

Me! I needed a helmet lock and you can't really use the seat one with bags, plus it a PITA. My wife had a double guardian on her Versys so I stole one of her locks and keys. I didn't like the way the guardian mounted anyways so I made my own bracket out of a piece of an old snapper rear engine lawnmower. I had been using the snapper steel for a bullet stop and I was lucky to find a flat piece big enough. By the way, 200g LSWC .45s usually don't go through old snapper steel. I do seem to remember thinking, when I was first looking at it, that the original guardian bracket wouldn't work for some reason. If you're really interested I can go look it again and try to remember the issue.

Edited to add: I guess I should add that I like the lock just fine and it fills the need well and is easy to operate.
