That's very true, but just because it's in a garage still put a disc. lock or something. I have a flush mounted floor anchor in the middle of my garage that a 1" cable goes through, the bike stays on both front and rear stands, with a disc lock, and steering lock. I live in the woods and have a long private drive to my house, They still "tried" to still my . fortunately when they saw how well it was secured they changed there mind and was greeted by my wife at the door with a shot gun. I did think it was a little funny though that they left my buddies brand new Harley sitting there as if they had no interest, and it didn't even have the steering locked . I think they knew what they wanted just didn't have time to get through all teh locks toget it.

Maybe for you casual riders but my motorcycle is my daily transportation to/from work and has been for the last 20 years. I'm doing my part to help George Dubya achieve the 20 percent reduction in gas usage.

A good number of people who drive a big- SUV to work in Houston could ride a bigger scooter to work and get three or four times the gas mileage. Think how much different the freeways would look at rush hour with even 20 percent of the traffic being motorcycles/scooters?

I think he was addressing that to many people can not truely afford this hobby if they can not afford the additional costs other then acquiring a bike.

Ahh yes I can see the rise in traffic jams now because of all the accidents! More motorcycles = more people riding the shoulder or lane splitting, and More "kids" wrecking due to show boating or just plain going to fast. Maybe thats just my view.

My bike stays in my garage. But even with full coverage and gap I still have sympathy for those who get their bikes stolen. Many of us don't finance our bikes and it brings an added attachment when you save up and pay for it cash. They stopped making TL's in 03 so if they get mine its hard to replace it with a bike in the same condition and all of the mods i've put into it. And on top of that there is a horrible feeling associated with getting something stolen from you. You paid for it, it did not belong to the thieves. So yes I have sympathy for them. If you have full coverage with gap or you don't.

Is that your only means of transportation? There are a handful of vehicles out there that could compete with a bike when it comes to milege.

I'm with you Tilla--beyond the financial investment, we often name these things. If someone breaks into my garage, they aren't stealing a 600rr, they're stealing Mogee. And theft is one of those gicky things that leaves a person--keep the testosterone on a leash fellas -- feeling violated and/or vulnerable in a certain sense of the word. I get what you're saying bdmpastx, but it doesn't seem lame to give sympathy to those who have something special stolen from them.

I live in a condo and park mine with the front wheel touching the door, my alarm, with ear peircing sirens, on at all times. I guess that, along with the big blue led flashing, and the fact that my next door neighbor is a cop, helps me sleep better at night. And i have full coverage as well. Thanks to Pete for the awesome rate!
