very good read...

My wife can never understand why I refuse to leave my bike out of sight when we go out to dinner. I DEFINETLY wont go see a movie and leave it in the lot lol.

My baby sleeps in our game room (inside the house, not even the garage) at night, and is parked right next to my bay in the shop while im working.

As stated before, if anyone has the balls to break into my house, they better think that that bike is worth getting lit up by a Rock River Ar-15 or S&W .40, whichever is closer to my reach.

Just make a fake car cover out of plastic that looks like a van is under the cover, but really the bike is hidden inside ;)

In all the research I've done on the subject, the Scorpio SR-I900 seems amazing. It has an alarm that, when activated, will go off when the ignition is played with, the bike is tilted at all, or even just if anything gets close to it.

It's also got a wireless remote that goes off when the alarm does, and lets you know what made the alarm go.

It runs a little on the expensive side, but how much is your bike worth to you?

Gotta hate those theives....
Good story. I have LJ too, but the older one w/o the paging system.

and Comprehensive insurance is a must in case you don't get it back...

I've got the SRi-900 and I love it. If it is parked on the street, large trucks set off the perimeter sensor though. I also have two disc locks - 1 Kryptonite, 1 Xena, and a nice black cover.

Personally yea If my bike was stolen i'd be bummed, but I have full coverage. In the event it goes missing i'd get enough money to buy a new one.

I secure it with a disc lock but i'm not worrying myself too much with it. If someone wants it, short of me sleeping next to it every night they're going to get it.

Have good coverage. Its the best protection.

Word on the AR-15. I think 00 buckshot or even birdshot would be a better option if you have a shotty. My AR-15 will punch through 1/4" steel plate all day long and I would be worried about stray shots hurting more than just the meatsack stealing your bike. Get a CHL too if you dont have one already. Gives you legal credibility that you can own, carry, and use if necessary a firearm, and more importantly, the class teaches you things most people dont think about.

Cool thing about where I live *knocks on every peice of wood available* I live out in the boonies (as you might have figured from my redneck response to theft/vandalism) and the few neighbors we have are awesome, including the U.S. Customs agent next door.

Hmm, why should I be so worried about someone stealing a bike if you have comprehensive insurance, which really doesn't even cost that much. If anything, isn't the insurance better than any kind of alarm, so I wouldn't even bother having insurance AND an alarm. I realize there could be a situation where someones bike got stolen, and for some reason they don't get paid by the insurance company, but I doubt that happens often. And half the time, I hear people essentially profiting after insurance pays them for the insurance claim. So, really, is there anything to worry about if you have comprehensive insurance?

Well its a hassle to deal with the entire situation as a whole. You have to deal with your insurance company and police and you'll be bikeless for a few weeks. It's essentially a huge waste of time.

I've never heard of anyone profiting after making a claim. You'll never get your money back for the mods you've done.

I agree with the possible hassle, but that probably wouldn't be so bad. And regarding profiting, I don't have any exact posts to show right now, but I am quite sure I have read posts on here where people crash their bike, and end up getting paid more than what they bought it for, and the possibility of buying the bike back in fixable condition for dirt cheap.

New law in California makes it illegal to carry "pig tails" or any other instrument that can be used to steal a motorcycle:

"Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside." - Valentino Rossi

“Now I can say my morale is reasonably high because I've discovered I have a great rapport with morphine!” he joked, adding “I hope nobody wins!” when asked about the race. - V. Rossi

Just read through 4 pages looking for the article.
Learned nothing other than thieves are scum and guns, locks,
insurance is good. Pretty common sense stuff w/o the article.
Maybe you should UNSTICKY this post?

That's why I loved VT so much, 90% of the residents had guns so there were almost no home invasions or car jackings. if you knew they were going to pull a gun you'd think twice about stealing from people.

however the laws seem to think we should no longer be able to protect ourselves and our property, bunch of **** if you ask me!

Anyone tried this? It is pretty cool. A hidden phone that calls your number if it's setoff:
The phone is hooked up to tilt sensors.

I have also heard of hiding a cell phone with GPS on a bike, if it get stolen you call the phone and police can track it. This is not anti theft thou:

That's a brilliant idea. A company could make a killing if they produced a tiny circuit with the ability to input your mobile phone number to signal you!

Stew, you should make this message more prominent... Can you delete my last three posts on the thread?

Also, is uploading a screenshot of the story acceptable?
