    A spare

    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.

    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

    Regards, Rod.

    P.S. Seriously, the only thing I do is take the tank bag off at night,
    Work is the curse of the riding class
