Long trip, now what? - September 7, 2009, 09:35 AM

So I just did my first long trip on the SV (2.5 hours down to charlottesville for school) and I was wondering what to do now, pretty much praying that maybe there are some .netters down here for school too.

if not ive got another question, my bike's parked on hte 4th floor of the parking garage attached to this building any ideas on how to keep it secure/from some jerk-off sitting on it and poppin the stand and falling over?

buy a cover, that will prevent people from sitting on it (usually) and be less of an appealing theft target, and for another theft deterrent you could just get a heavy duty motorcycle chain and lock and chain it to a pole, railing or something in your parking space.
Another option could be a homemade anchor using a coffee can, chain, and some concrete, its still able to be stolen, but just less appealing to thieves, finally you could just get a nice alarm system

Anything can be stolen if it happens well shit, full coverage thankfully

Hope for the best prepare for the worst...

to all the Wahoos!!

Buy a cover and an audible disc alarm on it under the cover just to further scare off anyone with casual interest in sitting on it or w/e.
