Here are our Top Ten tips on how to avoid being one of the statistics
- Alarm it »
Get a combined alarm and electronic immobiliser fitted professionally. Datatool® alarms are recommended as the best on the market and your insurance company should give you a discount on your premiums.
- Lock it »
Get a good lock and use it. Again Datatool® has some of the best on the market and you may also get a discount on your insurance premiums.
- Secure it »
Secure your bike to something solid that can't be moved and keep the lock off the ground - as this makes it harder to break. Datatool® have a range of ground anchors that are recommended as some of the best in the market.
- ID it »
Security mark your bike in as many places as possible to deter the parts thief. The Datatool® system is recognised by every police force in the UK and uses the world's leading technology from Trovan.
- Garage it »
If you've got a garage use it and lock it. A Datatool® Fortress 3 helps stop thieves opening the door and if you haven’t got one, remember Tip 3 - use a ground anchor.
- Keys »
Keep your keys safe and out of sight at all times.
- Steering lock »
Always put the steering lock on. It makes it harder to wheel the motorcycle away.
- Possessions »
Don't leave your helmet or other possessions on your bike.
- Register »
If you ride an off-road bike, ask the DVLA to register its details (frame and engine numbers) on their own and police computers - it's free. Plus remember Tip 4 - get it tagged with Datatool tagging.
- Check documents »
If you're buying a second hand bike or parts, be wary of motorcycles that appear to be 'bargains'. Have a good look at the registration documents and always check the bike's history with HPI Group Ltd, Carwatch UK Ltd., the AA or the RAC.
