    Default Immobolize a Spyder?

    A question to the masses, I do not have a garage to safely keep my Spyder hidden away. I need to make it safe in a driveway. Has anybody found a great method so the bike cannot be moved without great difficulty. Granted anything can be stolen if enough grunt work is put into it. So hit me up with some candid methods. We can have some laughs but I am dead serious about this. Help!

    Could go with a motorcycle alarm and a Lock & Chain. Or if it's possible, rent a storage building close by and keep it there.

    I am in the same position you are. We have a car and a truck in the driveway, and the spyder is out at the end of the driveway behind the car. I have found that having a cover for the bike, I just use a half cover in the summer, keeps people from nosing around it. I'll admit that i do not know what happens in the dead of night. However, the only thing I have found is cat foot prints on the seat.

    A Spyder is not a popular bike to steal. So the risk is low to begin with. The parking brake can be disable easily enough for a thief that knows how, with the right tool. The risk of that is low again. An extra step that you can do is lock the handlebars. That just make it less desirable to steal. It takes time and effort to break the handlebar lock. The immobilizer chip system built into the Spyder is very good and it is unlikely that a thief is going to start your Spyder in the driveway.

    The best advice I can give you is get good insurance and don't worry about it.

    Good thoughts so far. Storage will not workto far away. We already have two vehicles in front of it at night and full cover. Insurance is good but you always never get back your investment. Sure immobilize works but just the thought of ignition mess up hurts my head. Keep them coming,I know someone will have a killer idea.

    I installed an alarm on my 2013 ST Limited. It was actually a pain in the ass. It would kill the battery in about 7 or 8 days if it was not pluggeg into a tender. Whether it was armed or not. False alarms where not uncommon. But it was fun when some dick would sit on it without asking permission.

    I would get a thick long coated cable and heavy duty lock like American brand. Run it thru wheels and frame and a tree or post if you can. Mine was 10 feet long for my ATV.

    There was a Spyder Ryder who rode her STL downtown Toronto for work. She would put a wheel lock on her bike for security. Check out the following link. https://www.trimaxlocks.com/shop/wheel-locks/twl100/
    It may be overkill but, I understand how dead serious you are.

    What about getting a boot from the city that big bright yellow thing clamped on the wheel will keep anyone away....

    X2 for the bike barn & it protects form elements, locking the bars is a good standard practice anyway if you don't do already (some people don't know it can) read your manual for your year bike. Is just a extra turn of key with forks in a far left position

    There's more to consider than theft: you also want to reduce the chance of vandalism occurring.

    Drive in the truck. Drive in the Spyder backwards and lock the Spyder rear wheel to the trailer hitch of the truck via a coated cable or coated chain. Assumes you have a trailer hitch on the the truck or are willing to buy one. Enjoy!!

    I usually carry something like this when I travel.
