I've read a few articles about this being a big problem, especially around the bay area. I'm fortunate enough to be in South Dakota and not CA, but I have come across a few articles that indicate they are a common theft item all over the US. I've never heard this before but I figure there are other liter bike owners here. I just picked up a pristine 09 GSXR1000. Should I really be worried about parking it to go into a store or coffee shop? It will live inside when not ridden so not worried about it at home. Normally when I park my bike somewhere I keep it close to my line of sight or where I can see it through a window. I'll put full coverage on it (ouch) when the snow melts and I get to ride it for the first time. Aside from proper insurance is there really anything else I should consider? I'm in HD country and it's not easy to steal a 1000 lb parade float with 40 lbs of chrome and leather, but I reckon a couple strong dudes with a van could make short work of a 440 lb bike with a disc lock. Should I worry or do something more than what I'm already going to do? What say you guys?
