I had a disc lock on my R6 when it got stolen. It wasn't on the bike a few days later when some reggin showed up on the bike at ASI.

Best bet? Full coverage insurance, and don't park the bike outside.

Disc lock, chain, whatever, if a thief wants your bike he's gonna take it, and if you've got $400 in 'theft prevention' you're gonna lose that much more money when it gets stolen.

Make it as hard to get as you can, maybe they will go elsewhere....


Maybe not.

Only you can decide whether or not you will forget it's on there.

Please do not take this seriously , its just a bizzar thought that ran through my head.

There are alot of electronics out there today.

What if you rigged your bike that from a cell phone, etc with the right code you could:

1) Lock the ignition in the on position.

2) Kick the throttle to the full open position

3) The above once armed would be set to activate when the bike hits some insane speed.

4) Have a fail safe so you don't trigger it by accident.

Thief better have some dam good leathers.

I repeat Please do not take this seriously.

That's ****ing retarded...you would be putting everyone on the road at risk. Sure, theives deserve to be ****ing punished, but not at the expense of innocent people. How would you feel if you rigged up this incredibly stupid 'theft deterrent' only to have it work exactly like you've described, and run down and kill a single mother who's taking her two newborn children for a walk. Are you gonna adopt and care for the kids now that their only living parent is dead because you're a ****ing and wanted to look like a badass on a message board?


Think about the kids, dude. The kids.

Yup, that would definitely keep them from throwing your bike in the back of a truck.

Sounds like you are having a bad day, relax and take some deep breaths.
The guy prefaced the post with a more than adequate disclaimer, maybe you missed that little bit of information.

On your crack reguarding my post, I didn't realize throwing a bike in the back of a truck was the only way a bike can be stolen. Thank you for the enlightenment

Oh, so him putting a disclaimer exempts it from being retarded?



And when's the last time you heard of a bike getting stolen by being hotwired (or started without the key somehow) and ridden off? I've had 2 bikes stolen, and I've known several people who have also had bikes stolen, and know how many have been hotwired? None of 'em. That brake/throttle lock thing is right up there with 'Just disconnect your taillight when you leave your bike parked, that way if a thief steals your bike a cop will pull him over for not having a taillight and he'll get caught!'

Fact of the matter is all these things are deterrents, if it is a casual theif walking by they will probably skip your bike and move on to the next one that is easier to steal. But if someone really wants your bike, they are going to get it, get insurance and if they steal your bike then that just means it time for an upgrade.

Disc lock is one of many ways to slow down or prevent a thief from thinking about taking your bike. As mentioned, it is not an end-all.

To prevent forgetting that it's on and driving off, tie a bright colored string (ie pink) to the disk lock, put a loop on the other end big enough to fit around your throttle. Hang it on your throttle-side handlebar to remind you that it is on. Even better, buy one of those stretchy nylon key chain things that people hook to their belt loop. Wrap one end around the disk lock and the other around your throttle. Just take off the plastic clip, both sides will fit perfectly.

There was a guy at my old apartment complex that used this method. Long, yellow, stretchy cord that went up to his throttle. Seems like it would work well enough. But I mean, make it part of your ritual and it shouldn't be a problem.

They are worth it, got one when the bike rolled off the show room floor.
Insurance [ full coverage ] is a plus too.

Is it just me or does their site not tell what this thing actually does or how it works?

A disc lock may help if only 1 guy is trying to steal your bike. If there's a couple might not matter. If you notice at 1:08, a cop passes in the opp. direction.
