actually the trunk monkey was an insurance company commercial...but anyway the curb monkey with a 12 gauge works for me, though she better have a pink (don't care what the rest of her looks like!)

I say good old fashioned chaining your bike to a pole.

the option to ride in groups should also be available

Many a bikes have been stolen that were chained to something solid.

The best bet for prevention of theft is a garage. When you keep it out of the sight of a theif, your chances are far better.

The best bet for recovery is a lojack and Insurance should be a mandatory requirement on a bike.

exactly what i was thinking... lojack will do nothing to prevent the theft... same as full coverage insurance....

so the best to PREVENT theft would be a garage and/or chains/locks.

I do believe this question is regarding methods of theft prevention, yet some people chose option A "full coverage insurance". How does that act as a deterrent against theft? I hardly believe the thief will even be aware X bike has a full coverage insurance policy during the event of stealing a bike.

i knew a guy yeas ago who had a buddy who put a stick of dynamite under the driver seat of his truck wired up such that trying to hot wire the truck would lead to an explosion. one night his truck blew up. they were not able to ID who was in the cab at the time by anything that was left in or near the cab....

A garage will only slow them down because last May someone broke into my garage while we were sleeping and took my 2 dirtbikes, snap-on tool box loaded with tools probable weighing 700 pounds, bike stands,helmets riding gear, and they did all this between 12-5 am and did now even get my 2 dogs barking. there are some pro's out there that can get what they want and when they want it without ever being noticed. the bikes were chained together and had locks on the rotors.

Garage, +1

Insurance does 0 to prevent bike theft, only prevents loss of money.

I'm not sure how insurance PREVENTS theft & since the gnome is too expensive for me I voted for locks & chains....tho I think a better choice would be putting the bike in the garage or your house
