Motorcycle security at home

Posted by Howard Trott on Sunday, November 1, 2015 Under: Motorcycle Security
A high percentage of motorcycle thefts are from the owner's home. Here are some things to consider whenever your motorcycle is at home.
  • Where possible, always keep the motorcycle in a securely locked garage. Never rely solely on the standard lock on a garage door, these are usually hopelessly inadequate. Fit an additional locking mechanism to the door and consider having the garage alarmed. A security light, activated by a movement sensor is always a good investment.
  • Always secure the motorcycle to the ground or a wall, even if it is inside a securely locked garage.
  • Do not regularly leave the motorcycle outside your home, try to keep it out of sight whenever possible. If a garage is not available, fit a motorcycle cover over the motorcycle to disguise its true identity.
  • It is not uncommon for thieves to follow a motorcyclist home to find out where the motorcycle is kept. They will return at a later date. Be aware of this whenever you are returning home on your motorcycle. If you suspect you are being followed, do not return home, instead ride to a garage or shop and stop as a precaution.
  • When selling a motorcycle, do not provide your home address or the location where the motorcycle is normally kept. Arrange to meet the buyer at a location away from home. Thieves have been known to pose as potential buyers to find out where motorcycles are kept and then return later to steal them.
