Hey guys, riding season is coming soon and im getting ready to pick up the bike from the dealer i just have one problem. I live in a condo complex that doesn't have any garages and im thinking about buying some stuff like a motorcycle alarm by scorpio it has a perimeter sensor stuff like that its a nice alarm costs about $400, i also want a chain lock by onguard 12mm only like $70. You guys think i should go with that set up or just get disk lock and a cheap alarm, my main concern is having the thief lift the bike up, i live in a nice neighboor hood but not too far from a main highway ohh and someone broke into my car one night before stole some stuff so security is my concern

yeh i wouldnt go with just a disc lock if ur gonna park it overnight at a complex cuz i live in one too but i havent had any problems. My buddy had a disc lock on his 08 gsxr 750 and it got stolen in a parking lock.

I have a huge U-lock which basically acts as a disc lock but that is chained to a post too. I say the chain lock is worth the overnight protection and the disc lock for the on the go stuff.

They also have that one security system that uses GPS for the cops so they can immediately locate ur bike but i forgot what that was called..

I bought the gorilla alarm it has a two way so as soon as the alarm is trigger the pager alerts me... and yes if u are able to use a chain around a poll that would be a good option. Or do what others do.. (Ofcourse if u live on the first floor) take the bike in the apartment porch Or patio.

Here you go bro... http://www.newenoughhp.com/accessories/locks__alarms/ ....I am planning on getting a security system when I move out of my parents house because its currently in the garage. One of my buddys has one on his bike and its like a car alarm and it starts vibrating and beeping if it is even bumped. Well we were at a bar once and his thing started going off and we sprinted out to whoop some persons sh*t and there was like 4 girls that were looking at it and we were like hell ya. LOL

I keep my bike in a small outhouse round the back of my flat. Got a chain through the back wheel over the seat (makes it harder for the liquid hydro f**kers to break), and a chain through the front wheel and into a ground anchor. Not sure if you're allowed to, but it would be a good idea to look into the possibility of installing one.

As for leaving it at a friends, unless I'm going to my mate's secure complex, I wouldn't leave it for longer than 20 minutes. I was washing it the other day, and after I made sure I could see it out the back window at all times.. call me paranoid, but the further I slipped down the sofa, the less I could see it. Definitely couldn't sit still for longer than 2 minutes..

I live in a condo complex too so I understand your thoughts on security because of the open nature and buying an expensive toy to park it there. Perimeter is nice but make sure its set on a low level because of lawn service workers, other condo owners, and of course their damn relatives during holidays. You dont want that thing going off all the time because if you have a condo association you know they're full of old bags who hate motorcycles just because its two wheels, fun, and easy to bitch about. They dont like my car because of the spoiler....

When I get my 250 I'm just getting a wheel lock and putting it next to my car, if you try to steal the bike more than likely you'll bump into my car and the car will wake me up lol. Then my gun and I will go for a run ahaha.

Living in condo's are nice but yes they're a pain in the ass big time without personal storage areas.

full coverage insurance is a good addition to security. Where I live they will just take it off you at gun point. That is why I have carbon fiber knuckles on my gloves. If they don't have a gun I will own them.

Full comprehensive insurance, if someone wants it that bad they can take it, I'll get a new one... and if its at weapon point or I catch them doing it, it's not worth me going to jail for smacking them up. Always lock the bars and face the wheel towards something so its hard to push it anywhere. Install a second kill switch out of sight, so even if they get your keys its a pain in the arse.

The great thing about this bike is that full coverage insurace is like $35 more a month for someone of my age and great driving record. That'd be a damn good thing to have if you live in a not so dandy area or an area that gets alot of attention. Last bike week consisting of 8 days, 16 bikes were stolen at the grand value of $130,000. The good news is though 12 of those bikes were found so its an inbetween wager for the insurance company.
