honestly, I rented a storage place nearby when I ended up in a place without a way to get my bike into the apt.

Rent a house with a garage, sometimes cheaper than an apt.

leave it below the stairways with a chain and definitely install an alarm if you are going to leave it inside.

Most places will not let you lock it to the stairs---they claim some sort of insurance or fire hazard. I questioned it and asked to see the insurance but was basically told to off-which is why I bought.

Honestly, best bet is to find a storage spot nearby and invest in a bicycle for the to and from if the motorcycle is your only mode of motorized transit. Either way definitely insure it against theft.

Dont be scared just ride the bike up the staris and back down just like loading and unloading it out of a truck


or another option install a pulley lift system into the rafters of your balcony and simply hoist it up I recomend using alot of pullies to make it easier for you to lift or buying a winch



































get a cable lock for a motorcycle shop it is alot harder to be cut than a chain and get a brake caliber lock (DONT FORGET TO TAKE IT OFF WHEN YOU RIDE)

go to our sponsors section under state farm, and give them a call. you'll be SURPRISED!!!! i was quoted by a few different agents more than what you got quoted for, $8,000/year....then i hooked up with state farm and got it to $90/month for full coverage!

won't hurt to try.

other than that....get a storage unit close by....that's your best bet.

Shop around, a lot. Get a quote from all the major companies and you will find a lot better price than $4,400. I'm paying $1200 for full coverage (includes theft, flood, etc. and my policy also covers 1k of after market parts) with $500 deductible, bikes worth about $7-8k, and I am only 23 yr old. I'm with Progressive. Also, if all you have is liability, you can just add theft, flood, etc. coverage for like $500 extra a year.

i have progressive and yeah all i have is liability. and i called them and asked them how much it would to include theft in my policy and she said that from 52 it would go up 2 440 which would include theft vandalism and fire. idk i just think that kinda expensive. i wanna get full coverage tho. which is the best insurance company??
