How to Protect a Motorcycle From Theft
When at home, park your motorcycle in an inconspicuous or otherwise concealed location. Keeping it out of view makes it less of a temptation for potential thieves. When away from home, park your motorcycle in a well-populated, well-lit, secure area. Try to find a parking lot with a security-camera system and/or a security guard.
Install a hidden kill switch that must be held down when starting your bike. These switches are inexpensive, but an even cheaper, home-style remedy is to simply remove the main plug each time you leave your bike.
Use your bike's built-in lock. Thieves can often bypass these systems, but there's no reason to make it easy for them.
Use a second locking system, such as a disc lock or chain system that is attached to your bike's frame.
Never leave your bike unguarded or with the motor running.
Tips and Warnings
Put your second locking mechanism high above the ground so that thieves cannot get leverage off the ground to remove it.
If you cannot hide your bike in your garage, invest in a cover to keep it out of view.
When you lock your bike to something, make sure you choose something solid, like the foundation of your house or a lamp post. Things like a wooden fence can be broken or dismantled to get around the lock.
