  • Before buying a used bike first run a VIN check to make sure it wasn't previously stolen. If the buyer has a problem with that you may want to inform the police of a possible stolen vehicle.
  • After buying a new or used bike write down your VIN and keep it with your important documents.
  • Never leave your bike outside without at least a chain through the wheel and frame, unless you or someone you trust is there to keep an eye on it.
  • If you don't have a trailer with adequate locks and you're going to stay overnight at a hotel -- find a hotel with individual doors to the ground-level rooms. Roll your bike(s) in the room with you at night.
  • Buy full-coverage insurance for your bike, even if you never plan on riding it on the road.

Any others? [/list]

Here's an example.

I have a CRF150. I quoted myself $500K Liability Only Coverage (had to be $500K since I have a personal umbrella) and Comprehensive Coverage (in case the bike is stolen or if a tree falls on it and kills it) and the annual premium was $114. The liability would cover me if I ran over someone on the track/trail and hurt them and they sued me. Very inexpensive for peace of mind.

You can go to Drive.com and get a quote yourself or contact your insurance agent. Foremost is another bike MC carrier. It's a good idea for those who are carrying their bikes everywhere.

remove a wheel (whichever is easier) and keep it inside or at least keep the axle out of view.

Simple, cheap and only takes 5 min to re-install.

Insurance covers my bike even if its taken from the back of my truck out of state. Well worth the $75 a year. About the cost of a good rear tire.

Hey, I put a lock thru the front disc. It makes a thiefs work near impossible unless they have a lot of time and help. TPS

Depending on your alarm system on your car/truck, you can also tie in most good alarm systems to your trailers. If they disconnect your trailer from your vehicle it will set it off. If the amperage drops, such as a door opening, it sets it off. You can also get a remote added to your alarm, since not many people pay attention to car alarms any more, that can alert you from a reasonable distance.
My brother has been installing car alarms for 25+ years. Cheap insurance and peace of mind when you consider the price of a bike(s).
