+1 on all the responses. I love my 2 way scorpio alarm and xena disc lock. Insurance is the best protection, but some times it's about the amount of work that you put into the bike that you will never get back.

For me,
I use a cable lock tied to my rear wheel wrapped around a thick wooden post parked next my bedroom window since I don't have a garage or carport. I also have a disk lock on the front wheel. I'm a heavy sleeper but I have a dog to wake me up if anyone tries to pull something at night, at that point I will use Remy 12 shotty to make sure my bike stays in one place. Luckily I have a neighbor who has a pit bull when I'm not around.

To the OP, how big is your room? can't you put it inside or hide it in some kind of enclosure?

I know this is a year old thread, but i'll add some input.

First off I leave my bike in the garage. If you don't have that option you may want to look into a Arrow shed (they're only $300 + 100 for the flooring) Only problem is they are a pain in the a$$ to set up. I wouldn't recommend it unless you are somewhat handy and have patience. But it's been a good shed for the most part.

I would highly recommend buying a non-branded bike cover. DON'T buy one that says "CBR RACING" on the side. Buy a cheap crap looking one that will deter theives, not show them how awesome your cover is. lol

Also a ALARM disc lock is perfect, as others said a disc lock isn't enough, because the thief can just pick it up and carry it into a van in under 30 seconds. But an alarm that senses when the bike moves will probably be enough to scare the thief off.

Of course you need comprehensive, that's a no brainer. It's only like an additional $100 a year. JUST BUY IT. And this is kinda common sense, but every time you get off your bike lock the handle bars. If you don't anyone can put it in neutral and just run it away.

I guess that is true. The thought of even spending money on something labelled Suzuki makes m shudder. :p

Some insurance companies will reimburse for aftermarket parts if you have pictures or receipts for the parts.

I spent $200 on a beefy chain+lock and $80 on a cover and always use the built-in steering lock. When covered, the bike looks average. When uncovered, it really catches the eye. I hear bikes are often stolen to order, so you'll be better off putting a barrier to recognition of your make & model & year (by covering it up).

Suppose they come up and lift the cover and decide they want it. Bolt cutters won't do. They would need power tools, which are very loud and still take time.

Other than that, it depends on where you plan to park it. I don't keep it anywhere that's high-risk. It would suck if I had to leave it somewhere in the city on the side of the road. I'd probably want a hidden GPS tracker that'll alert my phone if the bike moves and plot the coordinates on the map and have remote ignition cut-off. I hate alarms though. I really don't want to be bothered to respond to false positives.

How did they get through the chain? And did the disc lock have an alarm? Which NY chain was it? I'm using something that I think is better than the best of the Kryptonite chains out there, but it's a bit of a nuisance to get your hands on.

Insurance is the safest way, this is true, but insurance companies aren't stupid. They'll charge high rates for high-risk customers and areas, so you're basically averaging out your loss and paying it yearly, plus a premium for the insurance company's profits and expenses. I've decided to cancel my (already very cheap) insurance and instead pay the one-time costs of theft deterrents.

Sorry to hear that.

What did you have it chained to? a jack stand??

It needs to be chained to a very sturdy location or other non-movable metal pole. Not sure what you meant by jack stand.

A combination of alarm, bike cover, chain, and insurance is the best combo. Disc locks do nothing IMO; they can just load it up in a van even if you have disc locks.
