Posted by Howard Trott on Friday, February 2, 2018, In : Motorcycle Security 
Motorbikes are stolen for the same reason that we ride them, they’re smaller and less cumbersome than cars, they’re fast and fun machines and some are worth a lot of money. Some are stolen for parts, some are stolen for a joy ride and the problem is they are quite easy to steal. If you’ve ever been out on a ride with your friends, at least one of them has tried to wheel away or move your motorbike for a laugh. Motorcycle theft can be as simple as that, especially when you hear this shoc...

Leaving a motorbike on the street isn’t ideal, but if you have to do it there are a few motorbike security options to choose from that can deter an attack from thieves.

Keep your motorcycle safe. The more security you have on your motorcycle, the better. Invest in a security device and always use it.
