Bike(s):
2006 GSX-R 1000k6
2003 Kawasaki ZX6R -- trackbike
2009 ZX14 -- STOLEN -- never recovered
2008 Hayabusa -- STOLEN -- frame recovered






I lived at Cougar Place for 3 1/2 years. Parked my bike outside the whole time with no issues.

I wouldn't bank on any garage cameras. My ZX-14's entire theft was caught on tape. The truck had stolen plates so... I got either way. She has never been recovered.

Listen up. If you ride your bike to UH don't park in the garages. They have the highest number of stolen vehicles and break ins. You are better off parking your bike over by Robertson Stadium or any other big lot. More pedestrian traffic less likely your bike will get nicked.

Live at Cougar Place right now, will be at the Lofts next semester and parking my bike in the lots next to it.

I'll keep an eye out.

And this is just another reason why I will never ride to class. I'll stick to caging it.

huh.. I always felt I was "missing out" on something by parking in the cheap lots (while caging). Guess not. Why not park bike right on campus? Or am I that blind that they've removed all the on-campus parking (just got my bike, so never ridden to school)? I know the bike parking mentioned earlier by college of technology is gone because of major construction.

I'll keep an eye out for it... and good luck with insurance.

That sucks man, sorry to hear. I ride to UH every day and always wonder if she'll be there when I get out. I like riding my DR650 most because I figure nobody would want it haha.

I'm sorry but you, that's why insurance costs so much
Yeah, maybe we should stop riding our bikes anywhere and let the thieves run our lives. Insurance is cheap.

The Robertson area does have a lot of traffic and I've wondered if that would help deter a bit.

quoting versatile's initial comment.

word. if someone wants to ride to class/work/wherever and their bike gets stolen its their fault that insurance is exp? f that. you buy insurance for these reasons. insurance isnt exp b/c this guy left his bike out, its exp b/c of thieves. your logic is all wrong. just my .02

you guys have 2003/05 bikes. try insuring an 2009/11 bike and no one has class from 9am-10pm. Just cause your bike is insured, doesn't mean it's ok to leave it out unsecured. At least get a lock, alarm or lojack or you can be crazy like me and have it sleep next to you and never let it out of your sight. Sure it could still get stolen but at least you tried.

I have several bikes and different insurance companies. Insurance is based on engine size. State Farm actually charges less for liter bikes than 600s. So I'm with State Farm for big bikes and Progressive for little bikes. I wouldn't have any trouble insuring a brand new 2011. And it doesn't stipulate in my insurance policy that I need additional security.

price of insurance is relative to value of bike and other factors, i think that is irrelevant. if your bike is more exp, your insurance is more exp.

and i agree w/ you on the fact that it should be more secured, just doing your part to prevent theft. but that doesnt require anybody to do anything. if he wants to leave it out all day that is his decision. it has nothing to do w/ insurance. again just my .02, im not trying to argue in fact i agree with you. just not on the comment regarding the reason why insurance is exp.

and i sleep with my bike too.. haha

when i was trying to find the lowest insurance....alot of them made the gixxer insurance high because of factors such as...popular idiots ride it and is the highest rated in accidents then anyother bikes

thats it, in two weeks im hitting up someplace that will install lo-jack....seems like i rather have them find the theives then have insurance and gap cover my loss

Mine is a drag bike. Does not see the street much and I put lo-jack. I don't want to lose my invesment. If you get the new lo-jack you know with in a few minutes it is moving. Whether it is running or not. And trust me it works I have had mine on the trailer and it goes off and starts calling me.


Also some of you may not understand you are on the border of one of the worst areas in houston.
