Security tips for your motorbike or scooter

  • If your motorbike or scooter doesn’t already have one, get a Thatcham or Sold Secure approved electronic immobiliser professionally fitted.
  • If you have a security device fitted, always use it. A wide variety of locks can be used, such as chains or padlocks, disc locks and D locks.
  • The most important thing to remember is to secure your motorbike to a solid object that can’t be moved.
  • Always put a steering lock on.
  • When you are not using your motorbike or scooter, put it in a garage or a secure outbuilding with a fixed or ground anchor to secure it to inside the building. If you can, fit a good lock and an alarm system to your garage or outbuilding.
  • Don’t leave your garage open and make sure your vehicle is covered up, even when you are at home. Some motorbikes and scooters are stolen to order, so a motorbike spotted by a thief today could be stolen tomorrow.
    Safer parking advice for your motorbike and scooter
  • Whenever possible, avoid leaving your helmet or other accessories on your motorbike or scooter or in a luggage space on panniers.
  • If you are parking your bike, leave your seat open so that thieves do not break the seat lock if they target your vehicle and search for items to steal.
  • Use a parking space built specially for motorbikes or scooters. They will have stands or security loops.
  • Look for one that has achieved the police approved safer parking award-Park Mark.

    Security marking and devices
  • It is a good idea to security mark your vehicle and as many parts of it as possible.
  • Use an engraving kit or a security marker pen to mark your motorbike or scooter with identifying details, such as the vehicle registration number or postcode.
    Engine cut-off switch
    Fit this switch after you have bought your vehicle so a potential thief doesn’t know where it is located on your motorbike or scooter.
