Stop theft by leaving in garage while you go out to movies(too much time nobody watching it), bars(drink and ride? not a good idea), malls(rent-a-cops aren't going to do anything as thief is riding away), "high crime areas", ect..
At work, parked outside with the rest of the bikes : )

let me ask you is your work parking lot garage or harder to access than just an open lot? mine is in a garage where everyone has to have an key card and there's security guards patrolling along with an cameras(yes i've asked if they work and they are functional)

just ive seen people on here talk about being in the same position and poof their ride is gone by some ....also do you go to biker friendly bars or just regular bars

Open lot . Having Ann ugly bike helps a lot. A bike cover is helpful too. Kris eyes off though I don't bother

i carry a lock& 15ft security cable with the bike. I also have an ugly tarp that i cover the bike with, it just adds one more element of "background noise" to the bike that will keep someones mind off my bike.

other than that its 99% about surroundings. If you pick the right place to park you'll never need a lock/key

The best response to your question.. Don't act like your bike is a car and park it just anywhere. Ride your bike and put it up.
