I made a 't' out of tie wraps. Bright red color. I put it in my ignition so there is no way I can forget (well, hopefully)

Like this: little crazy glue to secure it together.

I havent done that yet but I am afraid to. Thats why I havy a bright orange cord that I run up to my handle bars so if I forget to take off the disc lock I sit on the bike see the little Orange cord on the end of my handle bar and then say ohhh thank goodness!!! Needless to say its saved me a couple times from trying to dirve off with the disc lock on

I've heard of one disc lock that is also the left foot peg. So as you go to put foot on the peg to shift you will notice it missing.

We've seen that happen. We knew our day might come se we got bright-red lightweight coil-cords that run from the disc lock to the handlebars. Even if we somehow didn't see it, the minute we touch the clutch its right there.

In the garage when the bike is on the charger we have a 'Remove Before Flight' aircraft maintenance banner dangling off the connector plug to the bike. Same reason!

Wow.. Is bike theft that big a problem? I have never used any of these devices.

It depends on where you live, as most crime does. MC theft also depends largely on the model of bike as well. The expensive sports bikes are highest on the list, followed by HDs. Things like brake locks will help deter "spur of the moment" thefts, but probably not someone who has specifically targeted your bike.

If someone wants my bike that bad they can have it, the insurance would probably give me more than I could sell it for lol.
