EDIT: from what I understand. It would suck if it went off every time you tried to get your key in it, so I'm sure there's a bit of play allowed.
The only bad thing is that, you can barely hear em while you're inside. Especially if you're a heavy sleeper.

True.... but that thief is gonna be nervous as with it screaming in his ear. They don't want any attention. It may be enough for them to move on, or at least speed up giving up with it.

Apparently there's a warning beep that'll sound long enough to get your key in, but it'll go full scream mode after so many seconds.

Yeah the xena lock I have beeps when I put my key in it. You have a few seconds to get it off before it goes into full blown alarm mode. It's not too bad when you get efficient at taking off and putting on your lock.

When I lived in an apartment, even though it was against the rules (and I already caught on this forum for it), I kept my baby inside. The first few months I had it, I kept it at the edge of my bed. Then I kept it in my living room for almost 2 years. Now I'm in a house. It stays in the garage wedged in between two tool boxes, elevated, with my car touching the rear tire. Good luck getting it out.

Oh yea, and while people gave me about keeping my bike inside, in the same complex as me, a guy on this forum had his white cbr stolen. I got a couple letters from management, but it, I still have my bike and that other guy does not so no regrets.

when I stayed in a an apartment I also kept my bike inside, made for some fun sessions

I had a friend parking his bike outside with a big mean chain-lock going around a telephone pole. One morning the bike was facing the other direction and still locked up ! with a note, If we want it, we will take it !
fyi they picked the lock and re-locked his bike

alernately scratch the plastics, remove a few...dirty it up
so no one wants to glance at it, much less steal it.

Well I'm on my second bike in my complex (sold the first), never had it stolen(*knock on wood ) but I know the risk . I keep the wheels locked up.and chained through frame as best as I can. Ultimately the best option is insurance. From stories on here and friends even a garage cant stop a thief. If they want they will get it.
