Is it safe(er) now?

I get a little every time i read a jacked bike thread. And then i get a little worried. I mean, i'm gonna work my behind off (albeit a sizable one that DOES need to be downsized at the moment) so i can have some kind of down payment for a new bike and i'm not sure if i can keep a bike safe. First, i'm in an apartment and i'm not sure how much bike i can fit through the door. The wife agreed but said i'll need a tarp to keep the carpet clean, i'm cool with that . Second, when i go to wal-mart or whatever would lo-jack and/or any of the bike alarms (such as the units that have a control that tells you when you're bike's being messed with) be that effective in helping me keep what fVkn earned?

The new LoJack you can get installed by Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited a site sponsor has a pager that will tell you when your bike is being messed with as well as the theft recovery that LoJack is famous for.

Yeah apparently it has up to like 5 allerts for when the bike is moving when the remote on your keychain isn't near the bike.

It can e-mail you, call you, text you, whatever... it's pretty crazy and I think it's worth it on top of the whole tracking system. Instead of waking up 8 hours later and having the bike be gone you get woken up and maybe blow someone's head off or at least get the cops involved quickly.

Just get full coverage and be done with it. If someone wants your bike, they will get it regardless of Lojack



And why are you shopping at Wal-mart? Don't you know what walmarts doing to the economy?

If your in an apartment there is a high probability it will be stolen. FC with theft is necessary. I know from experience.

security features are a definite plus.. Xena makes disn locks with built in alarms and lo-jack would be good too.. statistics also show that thieves are slightly less likely to steal a bike if it's covered ( if you plan to keep it outside). Even though it didn't help me, it wouldn't hurt.

Finally i recommend, if you havn't already chosen, state farm insurance. They're prices were awesome for me and are taking care of my stolen bike right now.

I always carry full, with theft and uim. I don't know if they will be stealing it out my living room though... unless you mean from apartment parking. I was very adamant that our apartment had to be on the first floor with not too much hassle to bring my bike inside.
