I'm not sure if this topic has been covered recently so here goes ... A friend of mine recently traded his well worn '03 WR250 for a brand new '06 WR450. We performed all of the usual mods, + bashplate, pipe etc and we had a ride planned for Saturday. I received a call on Friday afternoon from him saying that he was unable to join us - i assumed it was due to the inclement weather and told him to grow some balls - he then informed me that his bike was stolen that afternoon around midday from his locked garage whilst he was at work. It wasn't in his possession for more than 10 days in total and had less than 200klm's on the digital speedo. He took all of the usual precautions inc. chain, padlock, deadbolt on the door etc and fortunately his bike was insured. The point is that a thief can and will pretty much steal anything if he really intent on doing so - all we can do is make it as difficult and time consuming for him as possible. My question is has anyone out there come up with a device so difficult, complicated or dangerous that they have been able to discourage a potential theft of their motorcycle ? Of course catching someone in the act of doing it would be a bonus and I'm sure that the police would be called .. eventually !!!!
