LOCKS only stop honest people,I live in the sticks so if someone wants to come and steal my crap out of my house they can have it and the insurance will pay for new,so the way I look at is,, take it ,,,your doing me a fave.I will claime it and buy new stuff.
When it comes to my cars /bikes I only lock them so I can hopefully come back to it and drive back home,and as I said I only have to do that when I vist the city otherwise the keys are in the truck. Never know when one of my friends might need a car or a beer.
Bike keys are hung in a secret spot at home and the ignition is disabled by my own hand wherever I go traveling and cant see it,, Or I go on a vacation and it get's left home alone.
Them anit thef systems don't stop thives they can find the information so easy and know how to bypass them ,make your own and they wont know how you did it.
I can't keep track of how many aftermarket remote starter/theft systems ,I have had to remove when the owner was locked out or couldn't start thier own vehicle. With the proper stuff in hand for thier own vehicle.
DONT buy one they are all crap,unless it has gps tracking.But then it might leave you stranded when it ducks up and trust me they all do sooner or later. But at least the gps will find it.
LOL might be good if you went out drinking and forgot where you parked too,the next morning.
Just a tip if you want to theft prof your bike from starting , take a filter from your smokes/fag and stuff it under the plug cap,not many thives will work that hard to diagnose a faulty spark problem. Or if your running a muliy cylinder bike switch the wires on 2 plugs it will back fire and wake everyone.
Want to dick with someone who pissed you off wet it first,will run til it dryes out from the heat of the motor.The motor will stop running when it does leaving them stranded.
As long as there are thieves then locks will only stop honest people and stupid people,unfortunatly even thieves can be smart.
