We have heard of old beat-up "entry-level" bikes being stolen despite being carefully locked up and covered as well brand-new bikes wearing locks and stashed away in seemingly safe locked private garages or inside gated yards. Motorcycle gathering places, shows, races, rallies, charity rides, etc. are often targeted. Urban areas are probably more dangerous for motorcycles, but we have also heard of bikes being stolen from farm sheds. The fact is, everyone is susceptible to theft, whether you realize it or not.
