I was surprised how relatively simple it was to break off a steering lock.
It's just a metal nub and with a bit of a torque it just snaps off if you use enough force to jerk the handlebars

disc locks on the other hand work wonders, but there's no guarantee it won't get carried away sigh..
still a good deterrent nonetheless

Sorry for your loss, it seems that bikes get stolen so often and easily.

Might I suggest next time get a Compustar Drone with a Digital Tilt Sensor. No Remotes, it connects directly to your smart phone and as soon as its triggered (moved, tilted) it will alert you on your phone and you can live GPS Track it from your phone. Its small to install as well and has built in back up battery.

Yearly subscription with unlimited Tracking is only $9.99 a month

Do 2-ways work well from undergrounds anyways? They are pointless these days, honestly GPS tracking is the only way to go.

Compustar Drone is GPS/Cellular tracking. 2 Ways only work when you are close enough to the vehicle/bike/etc.

So say they did steal it from underground, when it appears above ground you can track it. As well you can turn on Geofencing so when it leaves from the perimeter it will alert you immediately.

Dood you didn't have theft? I'm not gonna take any digs at you but seriously c'mon people use your brains. Tight budget? So it's more important to you to eat out or drive around and burn up gas but not put theft on something that is relatively easily stolen? That's almost as bad as putting temp insurance on your project car that just got finished and not getting the collision coverage on it.
Spoiler!


I feel bad for you losing your bike but I have no sympathy for your lack of coverage bro. Hopefully they find it.

Berz out.

Spugen story #2? Temp insurance without collision, sighing for car damage payments?

I would buy all the insurance there is... If I had a hot bike like that.

If I was in a situation where I could not afford theft coverage for my bike,I would just save up another month or make some sacrifices for the money,shit I would borrow the money from a friend if I had too.

I spent a mega shit ton of money on my bike,the fuck if I would ever ride it without full coverage.
