Leaving bikes over night

So I have a situation now, my girl friends lives in an apartment in Westmont and she just has a parking lot, what would you guys do, if you had to sleep over there?

Break up with her and find a chick with a garaged spot.


APTs are ALWAYS asking for bikes to get jacked.

not worth riding if you cant protect it.

Make sure you have full coverage insurance on the bike and hope nothing happens.

I had my first bike (01 GSXR 750, red/blk) ripped off from the apartment complex I lived in before I bought my house.

took it in the evening while I was out drinking, so I had to go to the police department drunk to report it stolen. :

Too bad LoJack wasn't promoted as an option then...

Lessons learned:

1) Chain your bike down (even a wheel of a car - get one of those chains with a cover), as it only takes two guys and a van or pickup to steal a bike

2) Don't go to a police station drunk to report stolen property

3) Fuck the town of Portage, Indiana

07 R6, that bike is as good as gone if you leave it out there. Especially around this time of the season. Every year, at least 3 newer riders come on CLSB and tell us their bike has been stolen. Hell, the fuckers tried to steal my bike while I watched them out of my office window at work . Moral of the story, if you leave it outside overnight, have full coverage insurance with the lowest deductible possible, and have your agent on speed dial, because you will be making a call .

I'd doubt that she would let me do that. So time to get a chain and chain it up to her car lol. Attach it to the rim I am guessing?

Haha, I'm just playing. Given the circumstances, try to park it in the area of the parking lot that has the most light and traffic (like towards where people walk into and out the lot). It doesn't hurt to try to chain it to something too, like a fence post. Make sure the chain is through something solid and hard to remove like the swingarm. Get comprehensive. That's about all I got.

If she has a car, try to park it in front of hers against a wall or something. In my experience, thefts are usually grab-n-gos. They throw them in the back of a truck or a van. If you make it harder to get to, it'll be a lot harder for the thieves to move.

Bring a thick steel cable and tie that fucker to her car, a lamp pole, or a tree. You could go the extra route and make the bike not mobile. Take one of the wheels off or something if you are really worried about it. Make it difficult or not appealling to the theif. When I went to Daytona bike week in 2004 I brought a steel cable and we always tied all three of our bikes together with it. If it makes it somewhat difficult for the thief he won't take it. The thief wants to be off with your bike within seconds and not have to work at it.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Grasshopper makes good sense here. Do not make it an easy target. Personally, if your gf is hot here mom prolly looks good too. And she more than likely has a garage.

Mesh jackets don't offer very good protection. Since you are already spending ~$200, spend an extra $100 and get a leather jacket. It will offer much better protection.

I'm sure somewhere it has. You could put your bike in a vault in fort knox but if the thieves are motivated enough, they'll get it. But it'll weed out a lot of the thieves not willing to put in the effort.
