Get the fudge off my bike!!!

I work at a bar about 20 miles from my house and to save money and enjoy the nice weather I take my bike. I park my bike in front of the main entrance which is the only part that isnt blacked out. Tonight I saw a dude leave the bar and look at my bike and sit on it. This has happend twice now. Should I get a seat with poison tips spikes or an alarm? This is the only spot I can keep an eye on my bike. What you guys and gals think I should do?

usually working at a bar means drinking on the job, thats bad news

and if the ONLY place to park is in front of the bar, then i wouldn't ride to the bar, cuz the sitting problem is going to happen again and again, and eventually somebody will drop your bike.

maybe an embroidered seat cover that has a giant middle finger on it, 'Do Not Sit', or the words ' YOU' could work as a good deterrent?

maybe take the seat off when you arrive? or make yourself a little barbwire barricade, hide it in the back of the bar and pull it out when u get there. barbwire can be substituted with rope or caution tape?

got a bouncer? tell him to bounce ppl off ur bike?

i would sooner just go out there and cuss ppl out instead of doing some home alone booby trap type on my bike.

i think your bike doesnt look scary enough, if you had a harley maybe put some of those SYLB stickers on it and a get back whip.

This is one time where I may recommend riding a scooter.
Seriously just put a sign or police tape on it.

Make a little laminated sign on a post that says "DO NOT SIT" and stick it on your seat before you go in to work.

I'd be more worried about some drunk stubbling out of the bar and topping it over or worse yet someone driving into it.

My girl asked a guy while we were gearing up one time.

He said they are pretty much just to display their "colors". but that back in the day they would have a lead weight on the end... which was used to smash windsheilds.
I've heard others say it means they are an officer in an M.C.

Beat an and make it Known that no one sits on that bike. Eventually a drunk will knock it over. You think he is going to stay around or is he going to run off and leave you with the bill?

So do something about it, Don't let someone walk over you. Sober person vs. drunk person is an unfair fight. Their pain threshold might be higher. But as far as coordination and motor skills. So seriously lacking. Anyone with a little fighting experience can do it. Only saying this in case you are a small guy.
