When riding home, make sure you are not being followed.
Stay alert for suspicious vans or trucks driving around late at night. These are used to transport stolen motorcycles.
Lock the steering if it has a steering lock.
Put a cover over your bike. It might slow down thieves and prevent theft of accessories. But make sure it isn’t a flashy lone with the brand name of the bike on it. That only entices thieves.
When riding in a group, park your bikes together.
Consider marking your bike in a unique way that could aid in recovery and therefore dissuade thieves.
At hotels or public parking spaces, try to park in view of parking lot security cameras and lights.
Install a motorcycle alarm and/or a hidden kill switch.
Buy a GPS tracking system that can track and relay your bike’s speed, location and direction.
We would also like to point out how quickly police responded to our call. Within two hours local police arrived and forensics arrived another two hours later. Meanwhile, we received a call from yet another police station to say they had recovered baby seats from one of the vehicles.
