- Always use a steering lock while parking or garaging your bike
Steering locks can make your bike hard to maneuver. Thus bike thieves find it hard to move your bike.
- Attach the lock higher up
The locks should always be attached between the frames and the forks of wheels so that thieves cannot gain enough leverage to pry that lock.
- Lock it down properly
With disc locks there is a possibility that thieves can easily load that into a truck and escape. To avoid this situation, attach your bike with an anchor to something solid. Even the ones inside garages should be securely locked.
- More the locks, more the security
In addition to your bike’s built in locks, put a few additional motorcycle locks, and if you also anchor it to a solid support then no thief would be able to snatch your ride.
- Don’t get cheap while investing on security
At times when your motorcycle’s security is at stake, it is always better to go for equipment of high quality as they provide high end security measures.
- It’s always wise to set up alarms
Making loud noises will alert your neighbors and people around, which is a highly efficient method to stop bike theft. Although there have been cases of false alarms but nevertheless, someone is bound to notice when loud sound goes off as soon as someone tries to break your bike’s lock.
