All true I guess you just can't be afraid to live and take risks. Maybe I shouldn't worry about it so much. If my better judgement stopped me from doing everything in life, I wouldn't own a motorcycle to begin with.

I'll have to look into FC next time I renew my policy. I'm pretty sure at that point it will have been three years since the accident anyway

Yeah I was a little over budget by the time I got my gear, bike, did all the routine maintenance ect. so I went the cheap route on insurance.

worst case if the bike gets stolen I'll be stuck riding my car everywhere. Wouldn't be the end of the world by any means.

you need to look for this type of lock its not a chain link lock, i have one for my motorcycle and i lost the lock key, so i tried to break it with a bolt cutter, no dice i have a huge bolt cutter and i dont think theres one that can cut these style locks they are barrel style solid metal "knuckles" that link together (ended up finding the key at a later date luckily)

Motorcycle Lock

It's all part of a bigger picture, "where do I park"?

Almost any place you go you're probably going to be in there for a while, save for the gas station. I'm not sure where a bike thief would likely hang out, but it would probably be at a place where bikers frequently park - and I wouldn't expect to see bikes at a gym constantly. I'd wager that apartment projects and parking garages are bigger thief magnets. Plus at the gym you'll have a much higher number of meaty muscle-heads to deal with, and if that isn't a theft deterrent I don't know what is.

I park on the sidewalk as much as possible where ever I am, preferably right in front of the windows. Granted, I mostly do it to be a douche and irritate the cagers. My biggest fear is having some little kid with inattentive parents mistake my ride for a piece of playground equipment and end up knocking the bike over and getting hurt. Thieves and vandals come in second.

So yeah...
1 - full coverage. peace of mind.
2 - take the cage if you're worried
3 - park on the sidewalk whenever reasonably feasible. Keep your eye on your valuables as much as possible, and to heck with the pretentious masses who tell you to let your guard down in the name of politeness.

Some of those areas are fire zones and you could get a ticket

I park by doors of stores and more.
I park by yellow lines and get no fines.
I park by curbs and I don't get disturbed.
I pull up on sidewalks and get no applause for my cause.
I get out to check her out and my little pwny is right where I left her.
