Really if they want the bike they will have it, as a Locksmith I know what it takes to bypass locks...I do it every day, with so many portable cutting tools and a bit of knowledge it's only a matter of time, and they dont have to be very big either..me, I like cable, and disc lock, gotta use something, alarms are good if they are stable and not falsing...so make up your own mind...anythings better than nothing...

Jesus, sometimes I feel like a teacher grading papers when I read these threads. The only one that gets an A on his test is Eric. The SINGLE most effective security item you can put on your bike is a COVER. After that, you can use any locking devise you want that makes YOU feel secure, but the real deterrent to the thief was the cover.
@ Oldrider, You are quite right about the 3 wheeler being unfairly blamed for their demise. Besides dumb ass dads thinking they were harmless toys for their kids, you had many completely un-protected riders, and almost as many drunk operators to boot. Of course when somebody gets hurt, it is NEVER their fault according to their attorney, and to an un-educated jury, it was easy pickings.
Just a FYI though, Suzuki produced the first ATV 4 wheeler. :). (Honda built "their" first 4 wheeler in '84, but that was not "the" first 4 wheeler.)

Sorry Scott, but there is only one 100% effective security item and one only. That is you catching the scum in the act and shoot them dead. I have zero tolerance for thieves. Unfortunately here in CA they get a free pass because it's illegal to shoot one. So a cover is the next best thing. So Eric gets a B on his test. :cool:

You're correct. Suzuki did build an LT125 in 83.

o_O Wasn't the Honda Odyssey the first 4 wheel ATV? They made the first one in '77. Admittedly, the Odyssey is a little different than the Quad Runner. But, they are both considered 4 wheel ATVs. And, yes, a lack of training or excess of alcohol will make all ATVs dangerous. But, to me, four wheels will always be more stable than three.

At the end of the day, it's just a thing. Yes, its YOUR thing, but it's still a thing.

I'm pretty far from a bleeding heart anything. Former Marine, lifetime firearm owner, gunsmith, knife maker, huge fan of being responsible for your own actions, etc.

No thing is worth a life. Mine or some low life theive's. No state will look kindly at someone shooting another human being because they were stealing something not inherently dangerous to others or as a matter of personal safety.

Cover it. Use common sense about where you park. Get involved if you see something being stolen, but don't go around threatening to kill people over the theft of a mere thing.
