Anti Theft techniques?!!

I really really am grateful for my bike much like everyone else here. So when I think about riding it to my college night class, I get a little uneasy about just leavin it out parked at night for a good four hours ( I hate four hour classes)! I lock the bars and have a disc lock. But I know if someone really wanted it, that aint gonna stop them. What can I do, (besides not ride it there) to have a better chance of preventing it from getting stolen?


One other classmate takes his 03 r6 there. Someone mentioned to me about chaining both of our bikes together?

Chaining them to something immovable, a paging alarm system like Scorpio makes, a Lojack in case all else fails.

http://lojack.com/ lojack doesn't prevent theft, but it helps recover your vechicle faster if it does get stolen.

The owner of a brand new Honda CBR 600 parked his motorcycle one morning at his apartment complex across from the Miramar, Florida police station. At noon, he discovered it was missing and reported the theft, which automatically activated the hidden LoJack unit in his bike. Within five minutes, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen bike, as did a member of the Auto Theft Task Force. The officers tracked the signal and within an hour located the motorcycle hidden in a stolen van behind an apartment house. The National Crime Information Computer indicated that the van had been stolen earlier in Pompano Beach. Both the motorcycle and van were recovered. The grateful owner of the motorcycle was able to ride again less then 24 hours of reporting it stolen!

I prefer alarms with paging systems. Let's face it, we hear alarms go off all the time and no one really pays attention to them.
Most bike thefts aren't ridden away, most are thrown into the back of a truck or a van and then carried away.
Best advice is to secure them with something good to a secure object, but if they really want it they'll get it.
Awhile back a guy with a wrecker got part as part of a ring, he used the hydraulics with a shear to cut even the most strongest chain.

Most ins. companies offer a discount, some don't, I'd check if you're not sure.

I would go up in your cage one day and chain up a BIG ASSED CHAIN with a good lock to a sign or pole that u can park up against. then when u take the bike just lock it up with the BIG ASSED CHAIN and LOCK.
Myself on the busa i have the scorpio with the paging alarm, perimeter scensor, etc.
Gonna relay my alarm into my screamer so when it does go off that beotch will be LOUD.
