Hands Off: Protecting Motorcycles From Theft

Hands Off: Protecting Motorcycles From Theft

Alarm Security Systems

A trusted method that's stood the test of time, alarm systems have been protecting motorcycles for years. Simple accessories like the Smart Siren II Security System and accompanying pager options from Harley-Davidson® make for a quality, affordable option, while technologically advanced choices like their integrated fobs and completely hands-free fobs make ease and convenience a priority. Alarm systems give motorcycle owners peace of mind knowing that they don't need to keep their bikes in sight to keep them safe.

Disc Brake Locks

When garage storage isn't an option, disc brake locks provide security from ride or roll-away theft. Disc locks are padlocks that are designed to fit through the holes on a motorcycle's disc brake. When applied and locked, the motorcycle cannot be rolled. Options like Harley-Davidson's® disc brake lock and reminder cord provide a strong lock that is resistant to removal by tools. It also comes with a bright orange cord that serves as a reminder to the owner that the motorcycle is still locked. Disc brake locks are ideal for apartment living, as they prevent theft without the nuisance of an alarm.

Chains and Cables

An ideal option for motorcycle owners who store their bikes in a garage or other enclosed building, cables and chains provide an added layer of protection. However, special care should be taken to ensure that the chain used is strong enough to resist cutting with tools like bolt cutters. Additionally, the material should not be abrasive or rough, as this may damage the motorcycle body or components. Specialized options like Harley's 20mm super hard, wire cable lock offer tough security that's safe for motorcycles.
