As a victim of bike theft I learned that the powers that be don't really- or can't really- investigate to find out whodunnit. So after recovering and rebuilding my wrecked/stolen 600RR I've added the Clifford alarm with vibrating/beeping remote, add in a Glock .40S&W pistol and bike thieves are a thing of the past.

In the words of the famous warrior poet Ice Cube:
"If the day does not require an AK it is good."

using a gun to defend your property is not the way to go.

Nobody says you have to pull the trigger. There is NOTHING more satisfying than watching the would be thief urinate on themselves while you wait for the cops to arrive.

My CBR has the HISS on it. It definitely helps BUT still wont stop someone if they want it bad enough.

Suzuki has been asked when they are going to release their system for the US and their reply was "It would raise the price too much for US models so we dont include it on our US spec motorcycles"

If it has a proximity motion sensor it might help since a theif wouldn't likely get around the alarm without tripping it, but if it doesn't then its pointless. Your best bet is to park it in your house, or at least park it in the backyard behind a locked fence. Chaining it to a pole would help too.

This is a good article and I read it in the magazine when it came out. The only thing is a thief is going to get it one way or another.

Case in point: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D96QM-lzLM8

Yeah I'm paranoid also. I've seen some youtube videos of thieves stealing bikes so quickly and easy it's scary.

This is why I don't understand the fools who don't insure their bikes, but park them outside their apartment, uncovered, not locked or anything.

I've met at least 3 people in the past 6 months with no insurance.

Great article! Mine actually got stolen right in front of my house.......Thank God for LoJack! It's by far your best bet aside from large chains snaked around your bike and a solid post!

Last year bike theft down here on the MS coast was a huge deal. With more and more crap being learned over time, makes me more worried every year. Bad enough I gotta worry about cagers and cops, now on to of everything I'm always paranoid someone's gonna FFD my bike.

HAd my last bike stolen by a guy I KNEW and the cops didn't do anything about it...at all. Thief's name is Corey, was my buddy's former roommate. Cops were all "You can fill out a report, but the likelihood of recovering your bike is slim." Me: "But you have the name of the guy who stole it!" LEO:"Fill this complaint out and we'll let you know if anything turns up." Me: "Forget it, I'll take care of this myself."
Bike turned up on SVRider.com a year or so later. I got it back. Not sure what happened to Corey...

2003 Yellow Definitely the fastest color.
A thrill a minute may sound pretty good, but a minute is a long time to wait between thrills.

as with most things if someone wants something bad enough they are going to get it especially when cops don't do much as a result

I live in NYC and am super paranoid everytime I leave my bike in the garage; we chain them together and then to a bolt in the ground; on top of that we have an alarm system. Wish we could afford a freaking guard stationed outside. Thanks for the article.

Great story! My 08 actually got stolen right in front of my house! Thank God LoJack saved her and the cops were able to track it down the same day! Got it back a couple of days later and have been on lockdown ever since! Chained to a post, Scorpio SRi-900 and Xena front and back....... Hope no one tries it again though.

Gotta hate those theives....
