Thank you Groomlake for all the time and effort you spent on this post. I picked up a few good tips from this post.

Here in San Diego we had a problem with a motorcycle junk yard being part of a motorcycle theft ring. So from now on I do not give my real address on receipts at places like that. Hell, one of our local dealerships had guys working in it that would take your address from the purchase slips and then steal your new bike days/weeks later.

Using the information listed in that Reddit AMA I purchased Xena disk locks and wire security cables for the bikes. Have not had a problem since. We took away the target of opportunity label from the house.

When i lived at an apartment there were no garages but we had covered parking. I bought the biggest cable lock they made and cabled it to the pole. The cable was very noticeable when driving through the parking lot and it never got stolen.

Had I been privy to this information beforehand, I would have genuinely reconsidered former posts where I talk about my illegal activity.


Good post GL, my bike stays outside but out here in the boonies, no one steals sportbikes. Only 4-wheelers, dirtbikes, and Harleys.

Because of the insurance company I'm with and the number of vehicles I have insured I have 4 years of new for old on all my vehicles! For legal reasons I'm not saying anything else!

Nice write up. I never use anything to lock up my bike. I always keep an eye on it, though. If I am going to grab food, I always park it by a window that I can look out and keep an eye on it.

Just put a Hyosung sticker on it when you park it anywhere. Who's going to steal that?

I know everyone can't do this but my prevention of my bike being stolen is parking it in my computer shop show room at night or my living room. An if someone comes in at night they will be met with either of these.
