Motorcycle security advice.

Use Motorbike Locks.

Perhaps the simplest and most visible deterrent, are large motorcycle chain locks or motorcycle cable locks. These should always be secured to an immovable object, such as a ground anchor, a lamppost, or another bike. ... That's why most bikers will own a disk lock as well as have an alarmimmobiliser.

I had a Honda Pan European that lived in my garage when not being used. I sold it to a mate who had to park it in the street outside his house. He ‘secured’ it with a BFO chain, disc lock and had a large cover on it too.

Within a week it was gone. A neighbour’s CCTV camera showed a truck with a crane on the back pull up alongside late one night. One of the scrotes on board jumped out, wrapped a strop around it and lifted onto the back and was away in less than a minute.

Unfortunately, the quality of the CCTV was not good enough to read the number plate.

Local police said it was probably stolen to order (no shit, Sherlock) and would have been stripped down for parts by the time my mate noticed it had gone.

Unfortunately, unless these BFO chains are secured to something (even a lamp post or floor anchor) then if a determined scrote wants it they'll get it.

Personally, more than one lock & a tracker helps too.
