I love my bike, just like the next man/woman. I am blessed to be able to have a garage to have the toys in. However, I learned a valuable lesson when I had an Impala with all the bells and whistles and it was stolen. Why put all that money in a nice bike/car or whatever and not have the security system to back it up. Low-Jack, alarm, tying it to a post with a heavy chain, something that makes it more difficult to get than loading it on a truck or just riding it off. Come on people we complain about thieves and all that, but what are we doing to really protect our property. This scum will always been in our society, always have been, but what are YOU going to do to make sure you are not a victim

Best wishes for the CL poster. I know the feeling. I will hit my bike if I see it on the road. Then ride it to the family/friend's memorial ride.

From what I've learned within the last month, any bike can be taken left outside with any lock front/rear within a minute.

If in a garage, almost the same amount of time.

To find your bike, all they need is a license plate number. So if you ride it at all, you are a target.


If your bike has an alarm...good thinking, but without a back up power source it can be disconnected within a minute. It can also be checked for an alarm by kicking it. Proximity alarm is your best bet in that case.

As for the garage, most people see that as security and I can guarantee most secure their bikes less in a garage then they do when left out.


Low jack/full coverage insurance is your only bet.

32 more bikes were found in a storage container due to one of them having lowjack(early April.)

I agree that bikes are stolen from garages as well as apt complexes. However, stolen bikes, cars or anything of that nature are really just crimes of opportunity. Which "target" is easier to obtain? At the end of the day, most you can do is make it as secure as possible, and make sure you have full coverage, if not, it sucks

no offense to anyone, but if you're keeping your bike in an apartment complex, you're asking it to be stolen. out of sight, out of mind. if you can't afford to live in a place with a garage, you can't afford your pretty new sportbike.

I pray you find your ride Cali and the worthless POS that had a hand in taking it.

I fell his pain as it happened to me less than a month ago. Partly my fault but was an expensive lesson. I was feeling a bit on the down side last weekend so I went out and bought another one and I swear it weights about 50lbs heavier because of all the electronic theft devices I have on it. I now have Alarm, LoJack, 50,000 volt grips, personal gps locator, and my personal favorite is the ak47 (see pic).

I hope one of them was a red and black K6 1K and I get a phone call.

i have a garage with a code roller. doors get locked at night. door into the garage is is in a gated patio. bike is parked between a wall and work bench. my car pins it in. you will be hard pressed to take it. my window looks directly at the garage door and my sig 229 .40 sw is right next to me. if you can manage to steal it take it. im a painter. ill just claim the paint job costs 4k and ill just get a nicer bike. im with dangelo and cali. what are you doing to prevent this. then not carry full coverage and come and make a thread about how you pride and joy was stolen but you leave it outside unprotected, underinsured, with no security. either way thieves suck and given the chance yes i will shoot someone and feel no remorse

Different prices depending on level of security from the police operated beacon to a keychain proximity beacon.

I pretty much garantee it. If you find a lower rate, call 'em & tell them. However, for anything I've bought I stopped shopping around b/c they always beat what I find.

Motorcycles Unlimited is the way to go.
