Bikes are a relatively easy target for the thieves, they can be easily wheeled away or carried off in a van. Make it as difficult as possible for the thief to get away with your bike. No security device is effective on its own, a combination of products is recommended.
Follow the advice below to help keep your bike safe.
Keep your keys safe and hidden when at home.
Use designated motorcycle parking areas and look for places with a 'Safer Parking Award' sign, and if at all possible, cover your bike when parked.
It's worth investing in mechanical and electronic immobilisers so choose a Sold Secure or Thatcham approved security device
When you purchase a security device make sure you use it.
Always engage the steering lock.
Don't leave possessions with your bike, such as helmets, gloves etc.
In your garage or shed, consider an alarm or extending an existing system, also fit strong locks and invest in a ground anchor.
Mark the main areas of the motorcycle with your vehicle VIN (vehicle identification number)
If having security fitted always use a VSIB accredited installer. Security systems are only as good as their fitting
