No one wants to become a
victim of motorcycle theft and another statistic recorded on a crime list
database. With this in mind, we must try to minimise the risk to
Is your motorcycle
The main problem police
have when they find a bike or part they believe to be stolen, is to
identify them. Marking your bike may help convict a thief or handler of
stolen parts. Any form of marking is better than none. Use an ultra violet
pen to mark body panels, seats and engine components, or even better, fit
a Datatag or Alpha Dot security marking system, both of which are
recognised by the major motorcycle insurance companies.
While permanent marking is vital, you should always use some form of
secondary security. You should not just rely upon the ignition or steering
lock fitted to the machine from the manufacturer. Most are inadequate and
are relatively easy to overcome. Always use an additional form of security
such as a good lock and chain, brake disc lock or a good alarm and
Lock and chain
Due to the size and weight of these products generally, they are more
suited to home or garage use, but, if possible try to carry one on the
bike. Never carry a chain
around your shoulder/waist or carry a brake disc lock in your pocket.
Serious injury could occur if you are involved in an accident. Use a lock
and chain to anchor your bike to a solid object such as another vehicle,
lamppost or fence. Fit a good quality lock and chain in this manner and it
will give the professional thief a difficult time in trying to steal your
Brake disc locks
These can be used as an addition to a good lock and chain. Used on their
own they will generally deter joy riders, but the professional thief will
either break the lock off at the scene or load your bike into a van and
deal with the disc lock at his leisure. Brake disc locks used with another
form of security can do some good, but do not rely on them solely to
protect your bike.
Alarms and immobilisers
These generally fall into two categories, the DIY and the professionally
installed. There can be a massive difference in price between the two
will on average cost twice as much as the DIY varieties but there may be
the added benefit of reduced insurance premiums or lower excesses, and
ultimately peace of mind with a professionally installed alarm and
immobiliser. Many professionally installed units are now recognised and
even approved by some manufacturers. This may be of benefit if your bike
is covered by the manufacturers warranty.
Many insurance companies
now offer good discounts on either policies or theft excesses, if the
products are approved.
Remember, even if
you cannot afford the best, cheaper products do offer a level of deterrent
to a thief and these could make the difference between spending the summer
with or without your motorcycle.
