Since I'm on a road trip every week for work (I'm just returning from a 3000 mile trip now) my bike sits in many hotel parking lots year round. I don't have an alarm and don't plan on getting one. The V does not fit the bill of a great bike to steal.
Still, in some hotels I make sure my window looks out so I can see it and keep and ear and eye open on it.
I just bought my second V. 2012 all black with Givi hard bags. The first ride to work(64 miles it was stolen from the parking garage. The bike was found in a bad part of town mostly undamaged but the hard bags were broken into. The worst part was the paper work and spare keys were in the hard bags. Now someone has a set of keys to the bike. Not sure if I want to spend the money on a new key set. I never had any problems with my 2009 blue one in three years. Any suggestions on what to do? don't think that it want get taken.
I've had a Scorpio I900 Alarm on my bike since right after i bought it and park it anywhere. If someone gets to close it starts chirping. I know if they want it bad enough an alarm doesn't matter but most thieves don't want any attention brought thier way.
