go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

That is why I ride the bike and make my stops as short as possible i.e restaurants etc etc if your going to be inside longer then 20 mins drive the car.

Plus bikes are meant for riding not hanging out in parking lots

Just get a hefty cable and padlock and lock it to a lamp post or something. Not fool proof, but will get most thieves to move on to easier pickins.

Sucks that not everyone can do that. I use the bike to go places where parking is limited. Easily able to squeeze it in between 2 cars where theres public parking.

Then again my SV is probably only worth about 3k now that it has 35k miles on it, so I'm not too worried. Full coverage helps too

+1. A chain and lock only works if you're parked next to a nicer bike.

BTW, a good quality chain/lock only shows down a good theif an extra minute or so. Chances are they'll take the risk of fighting with the lock for an extra minute to make some money.

Garages aren't fail safe either. I've seen cases where garages have been broken into. Windows are the easiest way, the siding around the overhead garage doors, and side entry doors in many cases aren't all that strong.

Would take a thief less than 10 mins to get into the garage, a few mins to get the bike out.

Locks and chains are useless if they want it. This will silently cut any chain in less than ten seconds.

It does suck but when I got my first bike that was the first thought in my head is where am I going to store this thing over the winters and at night. Once I had that figured out and arranged I made my purchase. I guess that's the common sense side which should be standard when living in this shit hole city

My brother was in the locksmithing industry and really with out going into the details, there are quieter and faster ways of defeating the cable and large lock on the front wheel method. If a pro wants, there is really nothing you can do. Insurance is really the best thing you can do. The whole concept about the big cable and lock around the front wheel is like not being faster than the bear or lion but just being faster than the other guy running away.

Just because your bike isn't expensive does not necessarily mean it won't be stolen by a real pro, if the parts on it will fit on a lot of other bikes the chances of it getting stolen will go up. Hd will get stolen more than bmw's, for example.
