Motorbikes, unfortunately, have a significantly higher chance of being stolen than any other vehicle. It is estimated around 40,000 motorbikes are stolen in England and Wales annually. Motorbikes are an asset to owners, particularly when they are considered a hobby and not just a mode of transport. That is why we have considered some of the best ways to protect your prized motorbike from theft in this latest blog post!
Keep Your Bike in a Secure Location
Keeping your bike in a garage or hidden away, is a simple way to protect your bike from theft, but it certainly works. Out of sight, out of mind is the perfect solution for preventing motorbike theft. One of the reasons motorbikes are commonly stolen is because they are easier to steal than a car or van. Ensuring people are unaware that you even have a bike will reduce the chances of thieves taking a gamble by trespassing or breaking into your property.
Lock and Chain
Instead of relying on a simple steering lock, which thieves can easily break through. Investing in a lock and chain for your bike will add extra security, making it harder for thieves to steal your bike. This will also act as a visible deterrent as passers-by will be less likely to take an interest in your bike if they notice a lock and chain. People who attempt to steal motorbikes are always more likely to go for easier targets. Make it as hard as possible and you will feel peace of mind knowing your bike is not one.
Take Advantage of GPS Tracking Devices
Taking advantage of the tracking devices available on the market will add the extra security your motorbike needs. In the event a bike is stolen, a GPS tracker will increase your chances of recovering your bike. With a GPS tracking device, you can monitor the location of your motorbike, as well as benefit from additional features such as tow-away alerts, a covert black box, and insurance discounts. At FitMyTracker we have a range of motorbike trackers from some of the best and most trusted manufacturers.
