Motorcycle theft is a big problem. There were 49,791 bikes stolen in 2010--that's over $325 million in losses!
Since 2007 in the U.S., there have been more than 236,000 motorcycle thefts with more than 5 bikes stolen an hour. And unfortunately, the typical rate of motorcycles recovered is only 25-30%.
Most motorcycles are stolen by professional thieves, and there's little you can do to prevent them from taking your bike if they really want it. But if your motorcycle is stolen, you can get it back with the LoJack® Stolen Vehicle Recovery System for Motorcycles--the only Stolen Vehicle Recovery System operated by the police.
