Best theft deterrents? I'm paranoid.

I just bought a 2007 CBR 600rr a week or so ago and I'm putting some money into it with some basic mods (exhaust, grips, integrated taillight, fender eliminator, etc..).

Right now she's parked on a military base (has anyone had one stolen on base?) but I will be riding it (maybe) every so often to my gf's house but she lives in a college apartment complex so I'm pretty sketched out about that.

I'm a complete noob for everything about motorcycles, including whatever wiring 'tricks' I've seen mentioned on the forums briefly, but I'd like to learn whatever processes you guys do to make your bikes harder to ride off with.

1.) What do you guys do to protect your bikes? I have no garage or even driveway.

2.) Have you or anyone you know had one stolen from base? (military)

Also, I will be getting comprehensive insurance coverage through State Farm (already have liability with them) but I have to ride it to their office before they'll cover it. I don't have time to do this for at least a few weeks so I'll be keeping it on base for the time being. Comprehensive will only cover what the insurance company deems the value of the bike and nothing more, correct?

Best thing is insurance, as the members said above. I had a Xena Disc Lock on mine (just the front) and the thieves picked my bike up/dragged it, stuck it in a van, and drove off. All under 30 seconds.

Ride as if there is a tomorrow to live for.

I have an identification system on mine from DataTag. Puts a traceable mark on every component on the bike which is registered with police so even if it's stolen to be sold for parts it's all traceable.

I also yes disk locks from and rear but in reality with any bike if they want it they can take it.

I used a xena disc lock as well. However, like said above, I didn't like carrying mine around either so I only took it on days when I took my bag with me.
I was extremely paranoid for the first few months as well but found solace in my theft coverage through my insurance company as well and smart parking. Like the others said, if they really want the bike, they'll take it.

I live in an apartment complex in a semi-shady neighborhood. I would never leave it parked in my complex unless it was just for a couple of hours with my door open to make sure I can see it at all times with my Xena brake disc lock alarm on it.

I park mine in a storage unit (Roughly $40 a month) when I am not riding it. The complex is gated, requires a code to enter and each unit is alarmed. So unless you know my specific code to access the lot, the alarm will go off when my unit is opened... I also put my disc lock on while it is parked in the storage unit. It's pretty convenient since the complex is about 1/2 mile down the road from my apartment and they don't mind me leaving my car parked inside the complex for as long as I want/whenever I want.

Can't say it's the best possible option but it sure helps me sleep at night.

Also, full coverage with the insurance company on the bike, too.

I've got full coverage insurance, a Scorpio i900, GPS tracker and sometimes a disc lock.

The range on the Scorpio is good enough that my remote will let me know if someone is loading it onto a van. As long as I have enough time to put shoes on, grab some weapons and jump down 4 flights of stairs, im good.

Scorpio alarm, with some sort of gps and full coverage. My bike was stolen 4 months ago. The day that I bought a alarm ROFL!!! Figures..... But at the end of the day if they want it they are going to take it. I'm sure most thieves just pick it up and put it in a van and take off. If you have a chain they cut it, if you have an alarm nothing a sound proof van wont take care of and some cutters.

I used to be a fan of a thick chain that I would keep in the glove box on my gixxer. Now with the RR there is literally only enough room for a pair of gloves.

#1 deterrent is a thick chain with a thick lock
#1 way to get you bike back is lowjack
#1 way to get your money back is full comp insurance

You'll want to do a combination of deterrents, on top of the full coverage insurance. I recommend one or all of these:

- alarm with paging feature
- a good thick chain w/lock (tied to the rear tire)
- disc locks on 1 or both tires
- Lojack

If I were to pick 2 from the above, then get the alarm plus the chain. Bring a small backpack when you ride so you can bring the chain since RR's don't have a trunk.

Another thing I've heard other people do with the chain, is that you can wear the chain around your body when you are riding if you don't have a backpack =]

you mentioned the bike being on base.. here next to camp pendleton, bikes get stolen from there on a regular basis.

put a chain THROUGH THE SWINGARM using that little hole, should be no reason you cant do it that way and its the absolute best way. if for some reason you cant, then through the BACK wheel. disc lock is not a bad idea, also on back wheel, since its small and fairly easy to see, will discourage most scrub thieves even though its not hard to deal with them.

full coverage insurance all the way. CBRs are easy to steal. lojack is kind of bullshit.. helps you get your bike back AFTER something bad has happened.. maybe.

the chain you can just leave it always wrapped around the pole/whatever that you have it hooked to, no need to carry 20 pounds of chain with you. get the absolute biggest one, if youre not spending around 150 that aint big enough. needs to be like a 15mm+ chain link, smaller ones are too easy to cut through.

After changing both tires I actually feel like the front would be better to secure it to than the rear as you have to unbolt both the calipers to get it off while the rear only involves loosening the axle nut and sliding the chain off the sprocket.

The only reason I use the rear is because I put the chain through the swingarm as well.

Dude I'm in the exact same boat lol!! Not the best option, but helps me sleep as well! The 1/2 mile drive (which is also on my way to work) to drop off the car and swing a leg over it is well worth the piece of mind in my opinion!

I used to bring my 250R inside my apartment, I built a moveable ramp that I would place over the stairs and then ramp her into the back door straight into the kitchen. Then each morning, place the ramp, back her out.

Alternately, licking it would probably suffice. At least it worked stuff I didn't want anyone else to eat something I wanted when I was a kid.
