When you go out, what's your security protocol?

What's your game plan for bike security when you're not at home or work? Like a restaurant, short trip to the store, over to a friends house/apartment, etc

And while I'm talking about this subject, what the recovery rate in Houston for stolen bikes? Anyone know the numbers?

Btw I have/use:

Security with alarm pager

Gps I hidden on my bike that I can track anytime on my phone or laptop...also it tells me when it leaves without my key

Brake locks but depends on how long I'll be....if I'm going to a store like krogers to get something and I know it's gonna be fast, I'll leave it off

And at friends house I try to park on the driveway near the house or on the path to their door and at a friends apartment, I try to figure out where my friends apartment is and park near the door or in direct view of their apartment

At restaurants/bars(I don't drink but to hang with friends to play pool) I park near the door, ask the doorman to keep an eye out and every 5-10 minutes I try to either walk outside or look outside and check the surroundings to make sure there's nobody near it or suspicious in the parking lot........ once I stood outside for 20 mins because there was a shifty looking dude that stared at my bike, then finally said it and left before he had the chance to do anything

Third vote for proper insurance. If they want it, they'll get it no matter what. Best bet is to protect myself financially. Plus I ride piece of bikes that no one wants to steal.

Here's my thing.....I'm young 24....so if I just fall back on insurance to take care of my stolen bike....lets say in 20 years my bikes have been jacked 2-3 times, wouldn't that look bad on me.....couldn't they say insurance fraud for me?

Btw I have full coverage too

i use a security cable and pad lock to tie the frame down to something typically if i have the opportunity. i also try to park where i can see when possible and am also guilty of going back to check on my bike frequently while out at a public place. cant trust anyone really.

the odds of you getting a bike stolen 3 times are pretty slim. The ins. companies know they are high risk, so 3 claims in 20 years is not going to set off any alarms. My advice is park where you can see it, and have full coverage insurance. Thats why you have insurance.

Once the first one is stolen, you care a lot less. LOL
