3 Ways to Protect Your Motorcycle from Theft

A motorcycle is a way to experience a type of freedom that a car just can’t bring. It’s probably one of your most prized possessions, even if you don’t use it all that often. But considering the portability and the desirability of motorcycles, they tend to be prime targets for theft. There are ways to decrease the odds of having your motorcycle stolen if you know where to start, courtesy of Armorcrest Insurance Services. 

Parking Your Motorcycle 

It might seem like a smart move to skip the valet and save the money in San Diego, CA, but parking your motorcycle where anyone can move it in the dark of night is too risky. You can lock your ignition, forks, and disc brakes but that won’t always stop a motivated criminal who knows they have the time and the darkness to be able to finish the job. 

Installing an Alarm 

Strong alarms will alert the people around your motorcycle that something is happening, but you may want to consider supplementing the alarm with a tracking device that can alert law enforcement of where your motorcycle is if the thief does happen to make off with your bike. (If you happen to sell your motorcycle, never let an unknown driver take off on their own.)

Reconsider Your Motorcycle Insurance 

An insurance company can’t stop a thief from taking your bike, but they can protect you from having to shoulder all of the costs of replacing or repairing your motorcycle if you happen to get it back. Armorcrest Insurance Services has been helping the people of San Diego, CA get the help they need to keep their motorcycles safe and sound while they own it.
