A lesson learned in securing a motorcycle
We take care of our motorcycles and make sure to secure them before walking away. This goes double when securing the bikes at home. Ironically the secured parkade in our apartment building isn't enough to keep out the scumming thieves so I chained up my bike securely to a post within the parking stall.
To be awoken before 7 a.m. by the police reporting they saw my motorcycle being ridden eractically through the streets of New Westminster was just bizarre.
Unfortunately it was my bike and I had the empty stall to prove it.
Obviously it was a case of lock it and
lose it anyway.
From that lesson I learned that no matter how much you secure a motorcycle the possibly of it being stolen still exists. The motivation for securing a motorcycle is to slow down a potential thief long enough to cause disinterest. I don't think there is one single item on the market that can do this. However using multiple deterents could pay off. Sure it takes extra time to add these security items, but don't you think it's worth it?
