Tips for Preventing Motorcycle Theft

Since motorcycles are smaller and lighter than cars, your bike may become a target for theft. Fortunately, there are plenty of steps you can take to make your motorcycle a less attractive target. Consider some of these tips.

  

  • Always lock the ignition and remove the key before walking away from your bike. 

     

  • When parking, try to find an open, well-lit area near security cameras. If you park in dark areas and/or between tall cars, it could provide hiding places for thieves to lurk. 

     

  • In addition to choosing your parking spot wisely, you can also use a bike lock or tether your motorcycle to a stationary object like a post, fence or even another motorcycle if you’re traveling with buddies. 

     

  • If you use a motorcycle cover, choose one that’s a neutral color to avoid drawing extra attention to your bike. 

     

  • At home, park in a garage or shed whenever possible. If you must park in the driveway, install a motion-sensor light nearby to help ward off potential thieves. 

     

  • Installing a tracking device on your bike can help with recovery if it does get stolen. 

     

  • Keep your bike’s title, registration and insurance in your wallet rather than on the bike itself. This helps verify ownership; plus, it may also make it more difficult for thieves to sell a stolen bike without this information. 

 

While you can do your part to deter theft, you can never completely eliminate the risk. Make sure you have a good motorcycle insurance policy, which may reimburse you for losses if your bike does get stolen.
