Motorcycles are increasingly becoming targets of theft in Oklahoma and protecting your bike with some simple ways can give you more piece of mind for one of your most prized possessions. The fact that motorcycles are small and relatively easy to move makes them particularly vulnerable to theft.
There are several relatively simple and inexpensive ways to help protect your motorcycle:
- Keep your bike hidden – you are most protected when your motorcycle is in a locked garage. If you have to keep your bike parked outside, start by keeping it in a well-lit area.
- If you can lock your bike - Even if you have your bike in a locked garage when not in use, it is a good idea to also have it locked to something immovable. When you’re out riding and leave your bike parked outside, always use your steering lock - this is your first step of defense.
- Other devices - Many dealers are now selling motorcycles with alarms as a standard feature, as well as similar anti-theft devices.
- Insure your bike properly - You need an insurance policy that offers the coverages that are important to your specific bike and lifestyle.
