    Hello, I was wondering, is it possible to protect my motorcycle from thieves and air conditions without spending too much money. I already installed motorcycle tracker, so now thinking to build something not too big so I could hide my bike in winter or rainy day. Have any ideas on how I could do this. Would be great if there would be any photos of examples.

    Common sense and a ground anchor.

    Depends on space, budget, aesthetic etc.

    When i kept my bike in the garden, i had a ground anchor and a chain big enough that only an angle grinder could get through it. I covered it with a cover and that was that. I rode in all weathers and it stayed outside in all weathers. I only had a YZF R600 that was around 18 years old at the time - so i wasnt too precious...

    If you have either a nicer bike, or want more security, then either a small shed, or a small shipping container style unit will be about as good as you can get easily i imagine.

    Ultimately, you just need your neighbours bike to be easier to steal than yours...

    Remember that by using a shed you have given the thief the ability to break in, close the door again and spend as long as they need, out of sight, to steal the bike. Your standard shed isn't the most secure thing in the world

    Did you fit the tracker or a company. Problem with commercially fitted trackers is the fitters use popular sites to fit them, so the thief knows where to look and disable the tracker.

    Spam, Bob. Spam. Read his other posts and the fact “ motorcycle tracker” is highlighted as a link in the original post and you’ll see its pointless nonsense.
