I'm still learning my way around town but it's the planet fitness off of fondren and the beltway. They didn't seem to mind me parking it right outside the front door.

The front is a one way mirror/limo tint, so people outside have no way to know if you're looking at them or not. Overall I felt pretty comfortable with it parked there. I guess it's one of those things you worry about until you try it.

I switched over to them from 24hr. seemed like they had the same equipment I use for less than half the price. Wish I'd had done it sooner.I think it should work out good just leaving it up front. I ride maybe half the week and work out 3-5 fimes over the course of the seven day week, so I'm thinking the day's my bike is parked up front should be mixed up and unpredictable.

Thanks guys!

don't be so paranoid. if someone wants it their gonna get it. I park mine on the side walk every where I go. not because im afraid of thieves because im afraid of teenage girls texting and bullshitting on their phone and running into it. I speak from experience on that one. she was nice enough to leave me her bumper with her license plate though.

I use mine as the bench, that way I don't have to worry about wiping it down...


If the bike has full coverage, why worry?

It doesn't. too outrageous. I have an accident from 2 years ago. I can't see paying over ten times the amount per month, that's ridiculous.

If I ride the bike for 2.5 years and it doesn't get stolen and I don't wreck, I will have saved enough money on monthly insurance payments to pay for the bike.

It me off that you drive for almost 15 years with no tickets and no accidents, then some idiot cuts you off. All of the sudden you're a "bad driver" and have to pay increased rates.

I have liability and theft for on my bike.
Liability is about $110.
Theft is about $120.
Its cheap.
It was my DD for about 6 months and I parked that suka everywhere. I've never had a problem what so ever.
Like the guys said.... If they want your bike that bad they will get it no matter what.

and that is for 6 months?

Honestly I never considered getting just theft.

I'm only paying 70 for liability and personal injury. I'll have to look into adding theft.

I'm thinking it's the collision and comprehensive where they really start jacking the rates up.

1. Just grab some out of Zumba and put her out on your bike.

2. Got get the FC...otherwise you'll just stress over it.

3. Just put a sign on your bike "Bike is protected with GPS tracking".

Can't stop a determined thier, but at least you can keep it monitored. (if it was the O.P. who stated going to Planet fitness) I got to 3 different Planet Fitness, depending on the side of town I am on. so far, all 3 have cameras in the parking lot, and front door entrance areas.

So I say park in front of the entrance. Closer than the parking lot, and it's still under watch. Or, just take the car.

Isn't that called a park? You don't even have to go inside a building, pullup bars, monkey bars, teeter totters. Dude you are wasting your money paying for that !
