It is extremely likely that your bike will be stolen on a college campus. The reasons for that is in the clear open view for everyone to see and it doesnt take an expert thief to know the best times to steal your bike based on your schedule. All they have to do is watch it for a few days. Ive seen it happen plenty of times. The bes thing you could do is get a storage unit. I know that can be a pain because you wont be able to ride at will but it wont make your bike as easy to steal and the r6 is close to the top of the list when it comes to stolen bikes. If a storage unit is out of the question get a bike cover and some type of chaining equipment to lock it to an immovable object this wont make your bike impossible to steal just less likely. i dont live on campus but i have some friends that do they usually park their bikes right next to each other and chain them together when they leave them on campus overnight. Im just a little paranoid about that i dont think I could do it. but if u do a little more research on this you should find some threads on this subject.MattMchgn said:Going along with the subject, I'm wondering what to do with the bike I'll have when I go off to college ('05 R6). I'll be living in the dorms and will want to ride every day, so I'll need to keep it somewhere close. The problem is that there are no enclosed structures like garages or anything to safely park it in. The only option is to park in one of the campus parking lots. I'm thinking that might be taking too much of a risk, cause it might get stolen, but the only other thing I could do is find a storage unit to park it in when I don't ride, kinda like a garage. The problem with that is that it wouldn't be close and I won't have a car at college to drive myself to the storage unit to get my bike. Basically what I'm saying is that my only option is to park in a campus lot, unprotected. I think that the '05 R6, being such a nice bike, would have a high likelihood of being stolen, and that's what I'm worried about. Any ideas? Also, I'm going to have theft insurance, so if it gets stolen, it won't be a huge issue (well, it WILL be a huge issue, but not AS HUGE), but I don't want to be getting a new bike every week because it keeps getting stolen. Plus, my insurance rates would go up, and I can't be able to afford that. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
