Ok I have had it...

I am sick of seeing threads titled "Another Stolen bike"

Everyone should have insurance with theft as well as Gap insurance.
That way if it gets stolen, no big deal. Get you a new bike and carry on. Besides who wants their old bike when you are now free to get a new one?

For those of you that live in apartments, make sure your bike is never seen. Keep it in your apartment, garage, storage etc.

No matter where your bike is, put a lock of some sort on it. The more locks the better.

Cover your bike with a bike cover so that it cannot be seen when you park it somewhere. You would be amazed at how well a dull gray cover makes. With todays sportbikes being all flashy and such they demand attention. So covering it up will help conceil it.

If you want the best possibility of recovering your bike, put a lojack on it. So far it has helped catch some theives and recovered several bikes in our area. It freaking works!

I know that most of this will go in one ear and out the other because so many people on here are living in the now rather than living with priorities in mind. So I guess it is a lost cause so don't come crying here when your bike gets stolen, you'll get no sympathy from me.

if you finance your bike for 10k Insurance only covers 8k. Gap insurance pays off the rest of the 2k. so you don't have to worry about .

I have a storage unit.. it's called the Parent's House.

I agree on the insurance. My liability+theft was like $45 a month. Full coverage on the new one is $107. I'll gladly pay $60/month extra for peace of mind.

Maybe we should put a sticky on reviews on different alarm systems, info on Lojack, where to get them locally installed, good online deals, etc.
