How you prevent your bike from getting jacked?

I looked and looked everywhere on this forum and even googled, got some decent ideas, but I want to know what you guys do on your bikes to prevent it being thrown into a truck. Dont say take off the wheels or get full insurance because I looked into that already....not looking good.

I looked at some Lojack options, I even own one of those on my car but its not 100% reliable. The vehicle has to reach a certain speed and has to maintain that speed for a certain time and all that is really Bulls.hit. I took off that stupid keychain device one time to test it out if it worked and it failed. I drove my car normal street speeds around 30-45mph for a good 30 min and I didnt get any calls or notifications, so I cant rely on Lojack 100%.

My bike is a huge chunk of my life and I honestly dont know what I would do if I were to lose it.

Park in the garage and I do also have insurance. You can get an alarm that has perimeter and tilt sensors and will go off if someone's trying to hurt your baby. Also bike covers are a cheap option as well, Crooks usually won't take something if they don't know what they're stealing.

Nothing... I've seen it all and all get taken one way or another.. Chains, alarms, locks trackers... Like X said full coverage and a good garage is about as good as it gets.

If they have a truck/trailer, it doesn't matter, insurance is your only option.

If you want to keep someone from riding it away:

Cover
Chain(swingarm)
Disc Lock(front and or rear rotor - rear preferred)
Alarm system w\ killswitch
RFID w\ switch
GP Shifting (i know, lame, but the last time someone tried to jack my ****, i found it in 6th gear... lol)

Will your insurance consider you suspicious or deny you coverage if you have stolen bike after stolen bike?

They could. It works the same if you continue to file claim after claim for any reason. At the very least your premium would sky rocket after each claim.

Its kind of messed up. My R6 got stolen recently and I'm gonna get a payout soon. Looking for a next bike but w/o a garage, I think there is a high likelihood it will get stolen again. So it seems like I'm getting shafted even though I have full coverage.

with or without a garage, you gotta go places with it...

2-way paging alarm w/proximity motion sensor. (chirps as soon as you go near it)
dont park where cars/trucks can pull right up next to it
their less likely to carry/push it even 20' to their truck with an alarm screaming/paging
its not fool proof but its kept my bike "MINE" for years now!!
(and in philly... thats say'n something)


yea yea yea, i know my cycle may one day get me killed..... but i get to ride it first!

hear it again garage and full coverage. If not an option then get a cheap bike cover, disk lock with alarm, and always park in well lighted spots. If I am at a friends apartment, mall, out to eat, I will park beside building between cars so harder for someone to carry out. the way i look at it, if it is harder for me to get it in there then harder for them to get out.

What are you talking about????

Lojack doesn't work that way IIRC. its a tracking device, I doubt going any speed has anything to do with it. I have the 1st Gen Lojack. how it works is when activated the signal has to be triangulated to locate the bike. I don't know what you are talking about going a certain speed...


Other than alarms and GPS systems, the best ways to protect your bike is to chain it to a post, install a front disc lock with alarm, and always try to park where it is not readily visible or accesible to thieves.

Of course full coverage insurance is a must. Storage/garage unit is also highly recommended.

I have a cover, disc lock alarm, big ass dog, 4 CCTV cameras, and a S&W .357 (among others).

You start the game with a full pot of luck and an empty pot of experience. The object is to fill the pot of experience before you empty the pot of luck.

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

Yes, I agree. I may be paranoid, but after having my bike stolen and reading the post from "an ex-bike thief" I don't trust ANYONE. I was just wondering if anyone had tried this. I have a different security setups, but this does look interesting.

This is a cool idea, however if I was going to go all out like this, may as well throw in some C4 for good measure.

Huge chain or two. make it the most difficult target. Don't get lazy and forget them, leave them at home, etc. Don't bother with anything less then 14mm (10mm very susceptible to even 4ft bolt cutters.

http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com...l.bok?no=15141

Also, while you're servicing your bike, etch the inside of your fairings and other bits with initials and number somewhere not too obvious.

youre welcome ! Its not a light chain, mind you. Do chain that to something less movable. I share a bike spot with a neighboor when visiting a friend and lock our bikes together since there is no posts around

(the chain comes with 3 keys best I can remember)
