Im beginning to get a little worried now that I have a new RR coming in next week. I've had a few friends whose bikes have been stolen or vandalized while trying to be stolen. Any ideas of crap I could get to help eliminate it getting lifted?

Do you have access to a garage or storage unit? If you have the bike outside it will be tough to properly secure the bike.
Make sure you have insurance on the bike as well...as far as locks and such I'm sure people here will have info.

What exactly is your concern? Are you looking for advice as far as storing the bike or protection from having the bike when you are out riding?

Im not too concerned about parking over night, since I have a parking garage at my apartment.

But like, even now, on my shitty bike, if i take it to a friends place in DC or whatever at night and park it on the street or whatever for a few hours, im always scared when i come back of whether it will be there or not.

Is this a childish concern? Like nothing big to worry about? Or is there a lock or something i could get.

As for insurance, i have Comp insurance incase of theft.
It will be parked in a parking garage.
I keep my wheel locked.

Anything else i could do though?

Keep it out of plain site as much as possible... Kryptonite NY Fuggedaboutit chain to a stationary object, INCONSPICUOUS bike cover, scorpio alarm, disc locks..... all very good DETERRANTS.

Shoot, from what I hear GARAGES even fall in that category....

Bottom line is to do what you can to reasonably secure your bike, but HAVE COMP INSURANCE regardless, because anyone will tell you... if someone wants it bad enough, they'll get it....

Try a storage unit as well....

There really is much more you can do...


I have........ no bike.

Don't fucking roll your eyes. I was being serious. The Scorpio or Scorpion alarm is quality, from what I have heard.

You're such a dick Lee.

As far as parking over night or something is a risk we all take in owning a bike. Since we can't watch our bikes 24 7 there is always going to be danger involved in leaving it out. Your best bet is to make it as untractive to a thief to steal it as possible. When I say that i don't mean ride a piece so no one will want it. I mean put wheel locks on it when your parked for long periods of time and the bike is out of your sight. An alarm is a great idea and will scare off most thief's. Lock the steering. As Devious said make sure there is full coverage insurance on your bike. If it's stolen and damaged your covered when it is recovered. If it is stolen and never recovered your covered for that amount. In any case if you have access to a grage or storage unit USE IT.

That is really all you can do since it's not hard to steal a bike but like I said before, it's a risk we all take.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.

Locks only seperate the punks from the thieves...

Good thing you have comprehensive coverage. Some dealerships sell additional coverage against theft protection, as well as other products that you can actually benefit from, in the event that your bike is stolen...

Out of sight..Out of mind. Keep it off the streets if possible overnight. Parking garages are known to have bikes stolen out of. I know its a pain in the ass ut keep it somewhere thats hidden like a garage.

Alarms, Lojack, lock and all that stuff are good deterrants but when theres a will, theres a way.GET FULL COVERAGE!!!

I'd sleep with my bitch if I could roll her up the steps. To be dead honest with you an alarm and chain might be close to as much of a deterrent as a garage. A thief will usually only take whats easiest and quickest to take. They DO NOT start your bike and ride it off most of the time, they drag it off the curb and toss it in a truck or van and 30 seconds later no bike there.

Im getting LoJack and a scorpio alarm and a bullbar on my truck to deal with this.

I had it... if I hadn't been a dumbass and left it in my trunk of my gixxer it wouldnt have been stolen along with it.
That fuckin thing is LOUD and SHRILL. There is absolutely no way they would have been able to take my bike without it waking me up and it will go off for hours. I liked it. I'm getting something onboard this time though. Scorpio with the pager. And you'd better be damn sure I'll be outside with a Glock 23 .40 cal under my shirt if it goes off.
