im sure many of you out there when we get off our pride and joy, you wonder when you come out of a shop will it still be their...

as a new be biker and a newbie to the forum i was wondering on my tzr is it worth getting any security devices. i have a disc lock and a chain but is it enough?? should i invest in a datatag or smartwater device or an alarm??

I still haven't bought my bike yet, but when i do i'll also be getting one of those covers, to stop twits doing stupid things on the way past, like with key's or gum. Wont stop a bike being stolen but stops the little anoying things (i hope).

The thing with DataTag & Smartwater, they dont stop the bike being stolen. They might help get the bike back but thats all. The best protection despite what anybody tells you is a garage or a shed. Having the bike out of sight gives it a 74% better chance of not getting stolen. If you cant put it in a shed or garage make sure you chain it to something. (Lamposts are good).

You will get a discount on your insurance for DATATAG (5%) most companies. You would get a much higher discount if the bike could be garaged.

But the problem is when u go to a friends place for the night, or go to the shopping center, work etc, basicaly when it has to be in the open and u have no control.

To be honest mate if your that worried about leaving your bike there dont! I know thats not much help, but what i mean to say is try and park it somewhere safer. Like somewhere well lit, near where people are more likely to walk past etc... and still fit chain and disk lock. Its better to walk an extra 5 mins to park it, then to walk an 2 hours home :)

A lot of insurance brokers ask if an alarm is fitted. To be honest an alarm's only good if you are close enough to hear it. Nobody pays any attention to alarms going off!

It seems u have to pay more for the security of the bike to pay less on insurance.

More = less, less = more.

I think i'll cop the insurance cause i'm under 25, male and first bike.

Insurance Man, do you get discounts if the bike is garaged away from your home Monday to Friday and chained up in a driveway (to 2 ground anchors) Saturday and Sunday?

Not realy. The garage clause which 95% of the motorcycle insurers have states "The vehicle must be garaged all times when at the home address or no theft cover will be in place". Translated to if your bikes at home put it in the garage you lazy sod.

Seriously though a garage or shed is the best security money can buy.

But it's the lesser of 2 evils, being leaving it out the front for eveyone to see as they drive past.
