[QUOTE=Paul_F;880353]A friend always did that as well. He never had a problem, except in Yellowknife NWT. Someone removed the keys, not the bike. Cost him a $100 to have a locksmith make him a new key. Despite that, that didn't stop him from leaving the keys in the ignition. :laugh[/QUOTE]
I carry two spares because of this. Mine has been removed twice; both times by well-meaning friends. Of course they were not around when I was ready to ride; spares take care of that.
[QUOTE=JIMMYLEE;867726]My son and I are planning a trip in May (each on our own separate motorcycle - I have an R100/7 and son has a K100RS).
My question is this. How do all of you make sure that your motorcycles are not stolen - like at motels or when you have to leave them in a public parking lot while you go do or see something?
Hi, I use the same method you did, I bought a BMW.
Nobody steals it, sometimes they feel sorry for me and leave cash on the seat so I can buy a real bike:laugh
P.S. Seriously, the only thing I do is take the tank bag off at night,
[QUOTE=martyhill;880319]That does it! I'm never going to TLH again on my BMW.:wave[/QUOTE]
Marty, you can park it at my house........... :)
