Here's another view on motorcycle security, courtesy of
craigslist (which is also a nice place to look for used bikes,
dates, and what-have-you).



hey crackhead



Your milage, and frustration, may vary.

Urban legend in my clique states that there is a "needs shootin'" clause somewhere in Texas law. Supoosedly it protects you if you shoot somebody who really, really deserved it for some oddball reason. Have you ever heard of this? Either way, Texas sounds cool.

I had a POS '72 (I think) CB500 in my back yard for some months. The day I moved it out to the street somebody took it. Fricken thing wasn't even running. Like an idiot, I leave my GL out every night in the same spot, just the ignition lock. Nobody ever touched it. *shrug*

That has got to be one of the funniest things I have seen in quite a while. Thanks for putting it up.

Good advice but if I could add one thing. Run your cable or chain into the fairing or some place on the bike that you can have the lock somewhat hidden. I have a friend that says if you spray freeon (spelling sucks) in to the key hole of a lock and whack it with a sledge hammer the tumblers just go to pieces. He said as long as he cannot get a clean shot at the lock up against something solid (the ground) he moves on. Also as everyone else is saying more than one device will make the bike down the street more attractive.

Holy ****e! I'm actually jealous that I didn't write that myself! Either this guy is a comedic genius or it's just Gabe secretly plagiarizing stuff from The Onion again.
