Sorry to hear about your bike gettin stolen....
Some experts recommend putting an anchor in the concrete of the floow and chaining it to the anchor. That way you have time to get up and lock and load while they're sawing the chain.

My Bikes in my garage are chained to an concrete anchor as well. The chain makes a lot of noise against the concrete floor and it echo's in the garage. My girlfriend went into the garage one night and i heard the chains moved and i nearly knocked her out until i saw it was her.

for those of you with electric door openers i would suggest adding a secondary lock, or anchoring your bike to the floor. I can pop open a garage door in 2 min with some kind of wedge and a coat hanger. Also cant go wrong with theft coverage.

GD thieves.... Hang em high


edit: and no the little lock button on your door controller is not enough.

I have been thinking about that, installing a lock to prevent the door from opening.

Question: Lets say for some reason you forget the lock and open the garage, or you accidentally hit the button to open the door (cause its in ur jacket) while the lock is in place. Whats gonna happen? Is the motor going to stop when it sees resistance or is it going to keep pulling till something gets broken?


P.S.: That "lock" button you mentioned, I have it on the wall controller of my garage. It either doesn't work or I haven't figured it out. Whats it supposed to be doing once you push it?

Sorry for the stupid questions, never had a garage before....

I live in an apt complex near the Galleria area and since I had my 04 R6 stolen from my parking stall (chained down with alarm), I now roll my current bike in thru my front door and it sits in the hallway of my apt.
Its a hassle but dang it seems like there is no real safe way to keep a bike these days?!?

town home and yes its open parking garage, but given mine is hidden in the back, someone has to be snooping around the community to find my bike. it's been there for almost a year every day!

Just remembered seeing couple of pretty ts (high school kids) getting high and walking around couple of days ago.
