Doubles as a wife infidelity tracker if ya need it!
that tracker sounds all good. But you have to recharge it? That is what may get me got. Be just my luck id forget the recharge. I think that i could do it with a good quality alarm, an with lo jack too. I got 2 of my bikes stolen right out of my garage in a decent neighborhood. My dogs were at the vet. Now the bikes have alarms, and they stay inside the house.

Re: best ways to keep a bike from being stolen?

Yeah when I had it I just hardwired it. I liked it better than Lojack because you can watch it with a wireless internet connection most any place. It doesn't draw very much but you would want to put your battery on a Battery Tender should you leave it parked for weeks at a time. Think of it like a cellphone with it's own internal battery and built in charger.

Re: best ways to keep a bike from being stolen?

all good advice.. always take the keys out obviously.. keep it garaged when you can , nothing less than full coverage insurance.. what's $50 a month compared to a $10k loss..

I totally agree.. fully comprehensive (full coverage) on my bike £118 a year.. Third party (Damage to other vehicles), fire and theft without cover if I drop it/damage it is about £15 cheaper.. Guess what I'm going for.. An extra £15 a year is worth paying just in case I do anything to her.. plus with fully comprehensive I can ride other bikes which dont belong to me..

Regards how to keep a bike from being stolen.. if they want to nick it that badly they will do and there isn't a lot we can do to prevent it.. All we can do is fit security devices to make it that much harder for them..

Re: best ways to keep a bike from being stolen?

semtex on a seat preasure pad will stop the B@sT@rds!!!! (May Cause minor damage to bike, garage, neighbours... well... anything caught in blast radius!!)

Or... do as I do...

Loopys bikes are parked in front of mine, they need moving before mine can be moved, they are then alarmed and immobilized... get passed that and they get deafened by exhausts loud enough to wake the dead (Who said loud exhausts serve no practical purpose!?)..

.. And if all else fails...

I'm sure it will be covered...

It's only acts of God not covered by my policy!!!

.. So, unless God has traded in his lightening and started to smite the unholy with plastic explosives, I'll be fine!

Re: best ways to keep a bike from being stolen?

I haven't heard anyone talk about one of the easier ways to deter theft.

Put a cover on the bike. If they don't know whats under the cover, they will actually have to get out of their car and pull the cover up to see what they are dealing with and if they even want to bother. Chances are they will just go to a bike that they can see.

Make sure it's a crappy or cheap cover so they don't think you have something really nice under there. Most crimes are all about opportunity. The more work you make for them the less likely they will take it. If they don't even see something they like (covered bike), they might not even start thinking about what they can do to take it.
