Lock it or lose it!

Motorcycles are fundamentally more vulnerable to theft than most other forms of transport, but they need not be. The use of a good lock will protect a motorcycle against most forms of attack and reduce the theft rate dramatically. Incredibly, motorcycle security experts still believe that well over half of all motorcyclists use no form of physical security other than the steering lock, which itself offers very little resistance to a determined attack. Furthermore, just like an alarm or an immobiliser, the steering lock does not prevent thieves from simply lifting the motorcycle into the back of a van and transporting it to a garage where they can re-mobilise the bike at their leisure. These figures are supported by recent research carried out by Oxford Products Ltd in the UK’s capital London, the UK’s worst theft hotspot. *A survey of 736 bikes revealed just 287 using locks, meaning that 61% of bikes were unsecured! The best advice is simple: Lock it, or lose it!

How to minimise the risk of theft • Buy the best lock you can afford and USE it every time you leave the bike unattended • Alarms can be very effective but they are only really useful when used in conjunction with a lock • Some locks have built-in alarms, negating the need for an expensive alarm to be fitted, as long as the bike has an electronic immobiliser too • When parking your bike, try to avoid using the same parking spot every day • Secure your bike to an immovable object, such as a lamp post or a ground anchor, otherwise it could simply be lifted into a van and whisked away • If you have a garage, always use it and remember to lock the bike and set the alarm • If you do not have a garage, use a bike cover • 80% of bikes are stolen from home, so use a ground anchor in your garage or outside your home to secure your bike • Never leave your lock resting on the ground and always lock it as tightly as possible to your bike – this makes it much more difficult to attack • Maintain your lock – if it stops working, you will not be able to secure your bike. Keep it free from dirt and oil the moving parts regularly. Water dispersants such as WD-40 are good for cleaning out the lock barrel, but are corrosive if left to dry and do not provide lubrication in the same way as a regular 3-in-1 oil.

Lock Quality Standards The facts about theft Motorcycle theft remains a growing problem, both in the UK and abroad. Every year more motorcycles are stolen, more motorcyclists are disappointed and inconvenienced and even more is spent on anti-theft insurance policies.

OXFORD

• It takes approximately 12 seconds to steal an unprotected motorcycle • A motorcycle is stolen on average every 14 minutes • Approximately 100 motorcycles are stolen every day • Less than 14% of stolen motorcycles are recovered • Theft accounts for one third of insurance claims

Always secure your bike with the lock positioned off the ground

Advice According to Police statistics, 50% of bikes are stolen by the opportunist or “Joy-rider”. Incredibly, they also estimate that 50% of riders do not lock their machines. Reduce the risk of theft by following these simple steps; • Buy the best lock you can afford and always use it • Alarms can be very effective but they are only really effective used with a lock • If you have a garage, always use it and remember to lock the bike and set the alarm - otherwise cover your bike when outside • When parking your bike try to avoid using the same parking spot every day and lock your bike to a secure immovable object • Never leave your lock resting on the ground and always lock it as tight to your bike as possible - this makes it much more difficult for thieves to attack • Remember to maintain your lock. Keep it free from dirt, and oil moving parts regularly. If your lock stops working, you won’t be able to lock your bike

OXFORD Security Advice 1a


RiDE SECURIATLY SPECI

The shed is your sanctuary – and your bike’s. Wooden construction and distance from the house may mean it’s more vulnerable than a brick-built garage, but it can still be a secure place if prepared correctly. More than anything, it has the great advantage of being off the street, away from prying eyes. A few hours’ DIY can transform the humble garden spider-shelter into a thiefproof vault for your pride and joy.

Illumination ➝ A light that shines on the shed door makes it harder for dirty deeds to be done under cover of darkness. A security light above the door is the best bet, but a motion-sensitive light on the corner of the house, pointing at the shed, should also do the trick. You’ll have to adjust the sensitivity to stop it coming on every time a hedgehog sneezes in your garden, but just having a light that flicks on as someone walks towards the shed could do the trick. Will also be handy when you realise you left your wallet in there after a ride.

Chain it up ➝ In a shed you can use a slightly longer or heavier duty chain than you would on the street, as you don’t have to take it with you when you ride off. Wooden floors and walls make lousy anvils for smashing chains, but still try to ensure the chain doesn’t rest on the floor. Park the bike in tight to the shed wall with the steering lock on. Try to pass the chain through the frame or swingarm as well as through the wheel (though it’s better to secure just a wheel than not bother fitting the chain at all) with the lock accessible only by leaning over the seat. This will make it almost impossible for a thief to attack the chain. An additional disc lock on the front wheel may add further peace of mind.

See page 11 for Chain Lockss

MOTORCYCLE ALARMS

Conceal it Cover the shed window! ➝ The recent rise in shed thefts is largely down to opportunists looking through windows and spotting valuable mowers, barbecues and tools. However, if nobody straying into your garden can see the bike in the shed, there’s no reason for them to return to break in. We wouldn’t use a motorcycle cover for camouflage purposes. An old soft sheet or tablecloth is more than adequate. The best disguise is undoubtedly the paint-spattered dust-sheet – as long as the underside is completely clean so it doesn’t chafe or scratch the paintwork. It won’t even hint that there’s a bike beneath it.

See page 7 for Covers over ov erss er

Secure the door ➝ This is critical. Bars orr grilles on windows can help keep thieves out, but the door is crucial because if they can’t get the bike out through there, there’s no point breaking in through the window. Yes, a shed is vulnerable to anyone with a wood saw, but that shows a greater level of commitment than most bike thieves are likely to have. So the door is the thing. A simple hasp secured with a padlock is too likely to yield to the crowbar, whereas a solid door bar fixed at both ends will present much more of a problem. It needs to be sturdy, reinforced on the inside, impossible to remove from the outside, and quick and easy for you to use, otherwise you might not always bother.

Fit an anchor ➝ You need a solid point to which the bike can be fixed. Ground anchors can be fitted in sheds – though it’s tricky as you’ll need to cut out a section of the floor and dig down to set it in concrete (unless you’re having a floor poured ahead of time, in which case you can get an anchor concreted-in before the shed is built).

See page 19 for Ground Anchors

Having an alarm fitted makes a vast amount of sense, not only because it should reduce your insurance premium, but also because it may ggenuinely help make your bike bik secure. Look for fo an alarm/ immob immobiliser as the most secure option, o as even if the alar alarm is disengaged the bike can’t be ridden away w without the immob immobiliser being overcom overcome. The ffob should use a random random-code, anti-scan system so it can’t be cloned and the alarm unit should have an internal battery, so it can keep going off when tampered with even if its connection to the bike’s battery is severed. Alarms are best fitted beneath the tank or inside the fairing, where they’ll be hard to reach (not to mention protected from the elements). If you’re storing a bike with an alarm, it’s best to hook it up to a trickle charger (see oxprod.com) to avoid draining the bike’s battery – though this may mean you need to run power to the shed. Fobs are best kept separately to the key, so they’re not exposed to the elements, and fob batteries should be changed at the first sign that they’re losing their charge.

Cover it up

Brought to you by

Parking overnight on the street when you’re visiting someone for the evening is one thing – the bike’s not there for long, so you’d have to be unlucky for it to draw the attention of criminals (still use a lock of course!). If you don’t have a shed or garage and your bike lives on the street, that’s another. Yours is the most vulnerable bike. Ideally you’ll be able to set an anchor in a front yard, but failing that, you need discipline – and good locks. Two extra minutes spent securing the bike when you get off can make all the difference between leaving it safe or leaving it ready for the thieves to lift.

➝ Concealment is a key defence: is that a knackered scooter under the cover or an exotic Italian superbike? A tatty cover is better than a clean one in this regard, though it still needs to protect the bike from prying eyes – and will protect it from the elements. Bonus! Any cover needs to fit securely over the bike so it can’t blow off on windy nights, good covers have outer bike straps. It should be waterproof and sufficiently heat-resistant so it doesn’t melt on a still-hot exhaust.t.

See page e7 for Covers ers rs

Illumination ➝ Don’t leave your bike in the dark part between streetlights. Park it next to a lamppost. Theft is often carried out in the dead of night, with nobody watching. Simply making sure the bike is visible makes it more secure at night.

Chain it up ➝ Chain the back of the bike to something solid. The chain should not rest on the floor, as then it’s vulnerable to attack from a sledgehammer. Wrap it round a lamppost, as that will be hollow and will ring like a bell if struck – something no thief will want. Ideally, the chain should pass through the rear wheel and around the swingarm – wheels on their own may be removed. Chains should be transported on the bike – not in a rucksack or carried over your shoulder, as they’d injure you if you crashed.

Put on a disc lock

Be unpredictable

➝ Yes, as well as a big chain. The back may be locked up, but securing the front wheel as well doubles the difficulty thieves would have in moving the bike, so putting a disc lock on is 40 seconds well spent. To make the disc lock as hard for thieves to get at as you can, fit it close to the bottom of the caliper on the left-hand (sidestand) side of the bike, then turn the bars and put the steering lock on. A disc lock with an alarm can be a useful deterrent as it will shriek if it’s tampered with.

➝ The temptation is always to park as close to your own front door as you can, so you can keep an eye on the bike. Which is good – as long as it really is that close. However, if you have to leave the bike more than a hundred feet or so from your front room, it can help to vary where you park. If your bike’s always in the same place, thieves will know where to find it. Moving between locations may help the bike go unnoticed for longer, which is important when it’s not directly under your watchful eye.

See page 13 for Disc Locks

PARKING ON THE PAVEMENTS This is a tricky one. The best place to secure a bike on the street is a lamppost. It can be possible to park on the road and get the chain from the back wheel to a lamppost, but not often. That means putting the bike on the pavement, which can be contentious. There are only a few areas of the country where local bylaws actually prohibit any parking on the pavement. However, paveme councils are obliged local co to keep them free from obstruction and so might obstruc the wardens round send th to give you a ticket. To have any an hope of avoiding this, you have avoidin to ensure ensu that the bike doesn’t block the pavement. Every time paveme you park, par imagine a mother with a pushchair and make ma sure you leave enough space for one of those tto get past easily.

Get an alarm

Solid, secure and impregnable – that’s the impression the garage gives, which is why keeping your bike in one reduces your premium. However, the impression is not always the same as the truth and keeping your bike safe in the garage involves more than pulling the door down and walking away. The advantages of the garage are huge, though – the construction is tough and it will almost always have mains power. Much of the advice relating to garages mirrors that for sheds – and again, it takes only few small steps to make the garage supremely secure.

Secure the door If they can’t get the door open, they can’t get the bike out – so the door is your first line of defence. Sadly, the up-and-over garage door is best described as one huge weak spot, so toughening that up is the first step. There are various systems that can be used to make them harder to open – the two crucial things to remember are that you don’t want anything so complex you don’t use it and it shouldn’t scream “there’s something massively valuable in here”. A simple single-point door bar is ample.

If your house has an alarm system fitted, it may be possible to extend the system to cover the garage, or get a secondary, separate alarm for the garage alongside the main system for the house (so the alarm on the garage can be armed while the house system is off because you’re in there). You can also fit auxiliary intruder alarms to run off either batteries or mains power. These will sound an alert if they detect someone moving about in the garage – they’re not so sensitive spiders will set them off. Sophisticated ones may even text your mobile or detect sudden rises in temperature


THE HORROR STORIES

lllumination As ever, darkness is the thief’s friend so shining light on their work is a huge deterrent. With a garage, it’s easy to fit a motion-sensitive security light directly above the door (this will also help you when you’re fumbling for the keys at night). A more radical approach is to also have a motion-sensitive light in the garage, making it harder for thieves to work inside in darkness after the external light switches off. Fitting a light is the kind of thing that used to be regarded as a basic DIY job, though if you’re thinking of selling your house you may require the services of an electrician for the sake of your home-buyer’s report.

Chain it up As with the shed, park the bike close to the wall with the steering lock on. Try to pass the chain through the wheel and swingarm, with the lock fastened between wall and bike. You may need a longer (1.6m-1.8m) chain to do this, but that’s practical in a garage. Make sure the chain is sheathed, to avoid it chipping or scratching the bike. Using a bungee to pull the chain past warm exhaust pipes can help avoid burnt wrists. If you can only pass the chain through the rear wheel, that’s still better than not chaining the bike up at all. An extra disc lock on the front wheel adds more bother for any thieves who have got this far. WE USE: Oxford Hardcore (£69.99)

See page 19 for Ground Anchors

Fit an anchor It’s essential to have a sold point to chain the bike to. Concrete floors make great surfaces for thieves to smash chains on, so it’s important to site the anchor where you can park the bike without giving hammer-swinging villains access to the chain – so that’s by a wall. Before you fit the thing, check your chain will go round the bike and the anchor in its proposed site, as it’s not something you can move afterwards. WE USE: Oxford Rotaforce Ground Anchor (£69.99)

All the security in the world sometimes won’t be enough. All the measures outlined here are designed to make it more trouble than it’s worth for opportunistic and keen amateur bike thieves to take your pride and joy. The real hardened criminals won’t be stopped by them, because they won’t attack the security – they may attack you instead. The quickest way for the professional bike thief to overcome a lot of security is with the keys. This means their target isn’t the garage, it’s the house – to get the garage keys, the padlock keys and the bike keys. In terms of your personal safety, no bike is worth you or your family getting attacked. If the keys aren’t hidden, you will be a lot safer – as any criminal going this far is not going to be gentle if they can’t find what they need. It’s not uncommon for victims of theft to wake and find a brick beside the bed. Why? Because in the night, as one member of the gang was looking for the keys and taking the bikes, another was standing by the bed, brick in hand, in case the owner woke up.


OXFORD

Which lock to choose? Chain Lock The most popular form of security device, because they offer the best combination of strength and flexibility. The toughest chain locks are almost impossible to breach, while they allow you to lock your bike to something immovable like a lamp post or a ground anchor. Chains come in many different sizes and lengths:• 1.5 metres is the most popular length – long enough to wrap around something substantial, short enough to curl up under the seat or in a small bag • Links can vary from a puny 6mm to an almighty 16mm in diameter. • General rule of thumb used to “the more material to cut through, the more secure it will be” and, all things being equal, this is true. • However, the material from which the links are made is usually more important than how thick it is. A high quality 10mm chain link which has been treated correctly will be far stronger than a 16mm chain link which is made from soft, low grade steel with the incorrect treatment. • Independent test houses such as Thatcham and Sold Secure will give you the best indication of a chain’s strength. Look out for their logos on the product. • Remember to always keep your chain off the floor and tightly locked to your bike. All the above is also true of the padlock; a chain is only as good as the padlock which secures it – and vice versa. Some chains come with an integral lock for convenience and some with a disc-lock for the padlock giving you the best of both world’s!!.

U Lock Can be incredibly strong, as there are so few moving parts and the shackles can be up to 16mm in diameter. Limited in use, however, as their dimensions mean that it is difficult to lock the bike to an immovable object, other than through a wheel. Some fit neatly under the seat; check your bike for suitability.

Cable Lock Useful lightweight security for less valuable two-wheelers or for those on a tight budget. Significantly less secure than the best chain locks and probably better suited to locking up your bicycle or your accessories. GENERAL RULE: the more material (i.e. thickness) equals more strength. Any lock is better than no lock.

Armoured Cable Lock Great, flexible and lightweight compromise between a chain lock and a cable lock. The cable is protected from attack by a layer of steel rollers or ‘cups’. The best ones are cleverly designed so that they can even pass independent attack tests and they are prized for their convenience and lack of a clumsy, separate padlock.

Disc Lock Very popular due to their compact size and portability, they represent a good visual deterrent to the casual thief. Use a reminder cable to let potential thieves instantly see you have a lock secured and also to act as a reminder to you!, the cable runs from the disc-lock to the handlebars. There is a huge choice of different shapes, colours, sizes and types available, but their basic job is they immobilise the front wheel and prevent your bike from being ridden or just wheeled away. Bikes secured with only a disc lock can still be lifted into the back of a van, but if you buy one with a movement sensor alarm then your chances of your bike being avoided are all the greater. For higher levels of resistance to attack, look out for the Thatcham or Sold Secure logos.

Ground Anchor For maximum security, it is essential to lock your bike down to an immovable object; otherwise serious thieves will simply lift the bike into the back of a van and be gone in seconds. Ground anchors come in all shapes and sizes (check that your lock will pass though the hole provided) but their aim is simply to provide that immovable object. Every garage, every work place and every bike park should have one for every bike. Thatcham and Sold Secure provide a clear indication about the security levels of the different systems available; then all you need to do is decide which one is the most convenient for you. GENERAL RULE: Use some form of external locking device as this will deter the opportunist thief. Use the best you can afford to deter the professional thief. OXFORD Security Advice 1a 10

OXFORD Security Advice 1a


Verrouillez-le ou perdez-le !

Abschließen schützt vor Diebstahl!

Les motocyclettes sont fondamentalement plus vulnérables au vol que la plupart des autres types de véhicules, mais elles peuvent être protégées.

Motorräder sind grundsätzlich einer größeren Diebstahlgefahr ausgesetzt als die meisten anderen Transportmittel. Doch das muss nicht sein!

L’utilisation d’un bon antivol protégera une motocyclette contre la plupart des formes de tentatives de vol et diminuera considérablement le risque de vol.

Die Verwendung eines guten Schlosses wird ein Motorrad gegen die meisten Arten von Angriffen schützen und die Diebstahlrate drastisch senken.

Etonnamment, d’après les experts de la sécurité des motocyclettes, plus de la moitié d’entre elles n’utilisent aucune forme de sécurité physique, en dehors du blocage de la direction, solution qui offre très peu de résistance à un voleur déterminé.

Es ist kaum zu glauben, doch sind Motorradsicherheitsexperten weiterhin überzeugt, dass mehr als die Hälfte aller Motorradfahrer keine andere Form des physikalischen Schutzes als das Lenkradschloss verwenden, das an und für sich einem entschlossenen Angriff nur wenig Widerstand entgegensetzen kann.

De plus, comme une alarme ou un système d’immobilisation, le blocage de la direction n’empêche pas les voleurs de soulever simplement la motocyclette et de la mettre à l’arrière d’une camionnette pour la transporter dans un garage où ils pourront à nouveau la rendre mobile à leur discrétion.

Weiterhin hindert das Lenkradschloss genau wie eine Alarmanlage oder Wegfahrsperre Diebe nicht daran, das Motorrad einfach in einen Lieferwagen zu laden und es in eine Garage zu bringen, wo sie es in aller Ruhe fahrbereit machen können.

Ces chiffres sont confirmés par une étude récente effectuée par Oxford Products Ltd, dans la capitale du Royaume-Uni, Londres, la ville du Royaume-Uni où les vols sont les plus fréquents.

Diese Zahlen entstammen kürzlichen Recherchen von Oxford Products Ltd in London, dem Zentrum aller Motorraddiebstähle in Großbritannien. *Eine Umfrage mit 736 Motorrädern ergab, dass nur 287 Maschinen mit Schlössern gesichert waren, d. h. 61% der Motorräder waren ungesichert!

*Une enquête effectuée sur 736 vélos a révélé que seulement 287 utilisaient des antivols, donc 61% des vélos n’étaient pas sécurisés !

Le meilleur conseil est simple : Verrouillez-le ou perdez-le!

Der beste Rat ist auch der einfachste: Abschließen schützt vor Diebstahl!

¡Con candado o sin moto!

O si blocca o si perde!

Las motocicletas son, en principio, más vulnerables al robo que la mayoría de los demás vehículos; pero no es obligatorio que así sea.

Fra tutti i mezzi di trasporto, la motocicletta è sicuramente uno

Usar un buen candado protegerá a la motocicleta contra la mayoría de las formas de ataque, y reducirá dramáticamente la tasa de robos.

Con l’uso di un buon antifurto si può proteggere la motocicletta contro la maggior parte dei tipi di attacco, riducendo così in modo drastico l’incidenza dei furti.

dei più soggetti a furto, ma il rischio si può evitare.

Parece increíble pero los expertos en seguridad de motocicletas siguen considerando que más de la mitad de los motociclistas no utilizan forma alguna de seguridad física fuera de la cerradura de la dirección, que en sí ofrece muy poca resistencia a un ataque decidido.

Sorprendentemente, gli esperti sulla sicurezza dei motocicli ritengono che attualmente oltre la metà dei motociclisti utilizzi come unico sistema antifurto il bloccasterzo, un dispositivo che offre un livello di protezione molto basso ad un attacco risoluto.

Además, al igual que una alarma o un inmovilizador, la cerradura no impide que los ladrones simplemente levanten la motocicleta y la carguen en una camioneta, para transportarla a un taller en el cual podrán volver a ponerla en funcionamiento cuando les resulte cómodo.

Inoltre, proprio come un allarme o un immobilizzatore, il bloccasterzo non impedisce ai malintenzionati di sollevare la moto per caricarla all’interno di un furgone e trasportarla in un garage dove può essere facilmente smobilizzata.

Esta cifras están respaldadas por una investigación reciente realizada por Oxford Products Ltd. en la capital del Reino Unido, Londres, donde más robos se producen. *Del examen de 736 motocicletas surgió que sólo 287 tenían candado; es decir, ¡el 61% de las motos no estaban protegidas!

Queste cifre sono state raccolte nell’ambito di una recente ricerca condotta dalla Oxford Products Ltd a Londra, capitale del Regno Unito, considerata la “zona più calda” del paese in materia di furti. *Da un sondaggio è risultato che su 736 moto solamente 287 erano dotate di antifurto, da cui ne consegue che il 61% delle moto era privo di protezione!

El mejor consejo es el más sencillo: ¡con candado o sin moto!

Il consiglio migliore è semplice: o si blocca o si perde!

Comment minimiser le risque de vol

• Utilisez le meilleur antivol que vous puissiez vous offrir et UTILISEZ-LE chaque fois que vous laissez le vélo sans surveillance. • Les alarmes peuvent être très efficaces mais elles ne sont réellement utiles que lorsqu’on les utilise avec un antivol. • Certains antivols comportent des alarmes incorporées, ce qui évite d’avoir à installer une alarme coûteuse, à condition que le vélo dispose aussi d’un système électronique d’immobilisation. • Lorsque vous stationnez votre vélo, évitez d’utiliser toujours le même emplacement chaque jour. • Fixez votre vélo à un objet inamovible, comme un lampadaire ou un ancrage au sol, sinon il pourra simplement être soulevé et mis dans une fourgonnette et enlevé. • Si vous avez un garage, utilisez-le toujours et n’oubliez pas de verrouiller le vélo et d’initialiser l’alarme. • Si vous n’avez pas de garage, utilisez une housse pour vélo. • 80% des vélos sont volés au domicile de leur propriétaire, donc utilisez un ancrage au sol dans votre garage ou à l’extérieur de chez vous pour sécuriser votre vélo. • Ne laissez jamais votre antivol reposer sur le sol, et verrouillez-le toujours en serrant le plus possible votre vélo; ainsi, il sera beaucoup plus difficile d’essayer de le voler. • Entretenez votre antivol. S’il ne fonctionnait plus, vous ne pourriez pas sécuriser votre vélo. Nettoyez régulièrement la poussière et l’huile sur les pièces mobiles. Des dispersants à base d’eau, comme le WD-40 conviennent pour nettoyer le barillet de la serrure, mais ils sont corrosifs si on les laisse sécher et ils n’assurent pas la lubrification de la même manière qu’une huile normale 3-in-1 (3 en 1).

Wie minimieren Sie das Diebstahlrisiko

• Kaufen Sie das beste Schloss, dass Sie sich leisten können, und BENUTZEN Sie es jedesmal, wenn Sie Ihre Maschine unbeaufsichtigt lassen! • Alarme können zwar äußerst effektiv sein, sind aber nur wirklich nützlich, wenn sie zusammen mit einem Schloss verwendet werden. • Einige Schlösser haben eingebaute Alarme und machen somit den Einbau einer teuren Alarmanlage überflüssig, solange Ihr Motorrad ebenfalls über eine elektronische Wegfahrsperre verfügt. • Versuchen Sie, nicht jeden Tag an der gleichen Stelle zu parken. • Sichern Sie Ihre Maschine an einem fest installierten Gegenstand wie einem Laternenpfahl oder Bodenanker; anderenfalls könnten Diebe sie einfach in einen Lieferwagen heben und abtransportieren. • Wenn Sie eine Garage haben, verwenden Sie sie immer, und denken Sie daran, Ihre Maschine abzuschließen und den Alarm einzuschalten. • Haben Sie keine Garage, verwenden Sie eine Motorradabdeckung. • 80% aller gestohlenen Motorräder werden an der Adresse des Besitzers gestohlen. Verwenden Sie deshalb einen Bodenanker in Ihrer Garage oder vor dem Haus zur Sicherung Ihres Motorrads. • Lassen Sie Ihr angehängtes Schloss nie auf dem Boden aufliegen und schließen Sie es immer so eng wie möglich um Ihre Maschine: Das erschwert einen Angriff auf das Schloss erheblich! • Pflegen Sie Ihr Schloss. Wird es funktionsuntüchtig, werden Sie Ihr Motorrad nicht mehr sichern können. Halten Sie das Schloss schmutzfrei und schmieren Sie alle beweglichen Teile regelmäßig. Wasserabweisende Mittel wie „WD-40“ eignen sich zwar gut zum Reinigen des Schlosszylinders, sind aber nach dem Trocknen korrodierend und bieten nicht dieselbe Schmierqualität wie ein reguläres „3-in1”-Öl.

Cómo minimizar el riesgo de robo • Compre el mejor candado que pueda permitirse, y ÚSELO cada vez que deje la moto sola. • Las alarmas pueden ser muy eficaces, pero en realidad sólo sirven si se usan conjuntamente con un candado. • Algunos candados tienen alarmas incorporadas con lo cual se evita tener que instalar una alarma de alto precio – pero sólo si la moto ya tiene también un inmovilizador electrónico. • Cuando estacione la moto, trate de evitar el dejarla todos los días en un mismo lugar. • Fije la moto a un objeto inamovible, tal como la columna de un farol o un anclaje al suelo; si no, podrán simplemente levantarla, cargarla en una camioneta y marcharse con ella. • Si tiene garaje, úselo siempre y recuerde poner el candado y activar la alarma de la moto. • Si no tiene garaje, cubra la motocicleta. • El 80% de las motos se roban del hogar; por lo tanto, use un anclaje al suelo dentro del garaje o fuera de su casa par proteger su moto. • Nunca deje el candado apoyado sobre el piso, y ajústelo siempre lo más posible a la moto: ello hace mucho más difícil el ataque. • Mantenga el candado en buen estado: si deja de funcionar, no podrá proteger su moto. Mantenga el candado limpio, y aceite periódicamente las piezas móviles. Los dispersantes del agua, como el WD-40, son buenos para limpiar el cilindro del candado; pero son corrosivos si se permite que se sequen, y no lubrican de la misma manera que un aceite 3-en-1 común.

Come ridurre il rischio di furto • Acquistate l’antifurto migliore che potete permettervi e UTILIZZATELO ogni volta che lasciate la moto incustodita • Gli allarmi possono essere molto efficaci, ma sono veramente utili solo se utilizzati assieme ad un sistema antifurto • Gli antifurti con allarme incorporato riducono le spese aggiuntive per l’acquisto di un allarme separato, sempre che la moto sia dotata anche di un immobilizzatore elettronico • Evitate di parcheggiare la moto sempre nello stesso luogo • Bloccate la moto ad un oggetto fisso, come un lampione o un ancoraggio al suolo, per impedire che possa essere semplicemente sollevata, caricata all’interno di un furgone e trasportata via • Se avete a disposizione un garage, usatelo sempre per parcheggiare, ricordandovi di bloccare la moto e impostare l’allarme • Se non avete un garage, usate un telo coprimoto • Nell’80% dei casi le moto vengono rubate a casa; si consiglia pertanto di montare un sistema di ancoraggio al suolo in garage o sotto casa per proteggere la vostra moto • Non lasciate mai l’antifurto per terra e bloccate la moto nel modo più stretto possibile per un’azione deterrente più efficace • La manutenzione dell’antifurto è importante: se non funziona, non può bloccare la moto. Proteggete l’antifurto dallo sporco e oleate regolarmente le parti mobili. Gli idrorepellenti come WD-40 sono idonei per la pulizia della serratura di un lucchetto, ma sono corrosivi se lasciati seccare e non offrono la stessa lubrificazione dei regolari oli 3-in-1.

Quel antivol choisir ?

Welches Schloss sollten Sie wählen?

Antivol à chaîne C’est la forme la plus connue d’antivol, car elle associe la résistance mécanique et la souplesse. Les antivols à chaîne les plus résistants sont presque impossibles à forcer, et ils vous permettent de verrouiller votre vélo sur un objet inamovible comme un réverbère ou un ancrage au sol.

Kettenschloss Die beliebteste Form der Sicherung, da Kettenschlösser die beste Kombination aus Stärke und Flexibilität bieten. Die stärkste Kette sieht beinahe unzerbrechlich aus, während sie Ihnen gleichzeitig gestattet, Ihr Motorrad an einem fest installierten Gegenstand wie einem Laternenpfahl oder Bodenanker anzuketten.

Les chaînes existent en différentes tailles et longueurs :

Ketten sind in vielen unterschiedlichen Stärken und Längen erhältlich:

• Les chaînes les plus utilisées ont une longueur de 1,5 mètre. C’est suffisant pour enrouler la chaîne autour d’un objet volumineux et c’est suffisamment court pour ranger la chaîne sous le siège ou dans un petit sac. • Les maillons peuvent avoir un diamètre allant de 6mm pour les moins résistants à16mm pour les plus résistants. • On utilise généralement la règle pratique suivante : “Plus il y a de matériau à découper, meilleure sera la sécurité” et toutes choses égales par ailleurs, ceci reste vrai. • Cependant, le matériau des maillons est généralement plus important que son épaisseur. Un maillon de chaîne10mm de qualité supérieure, ayant subi les traitements thermiques corrects, sera beaucoup plus résistant qu’un maillon 16mm, en acier malléable, de grade inférieur, ayant subi un traitement pas correct. • Des organismes d’essai indépendants, comme Thatcham et Sold Secure vous donneront les meilleures indications concernant la résistance d’une chaîne. Recherchez leur logo sur le produit.

• 1,5 Meter ist die beliebteste Länge: lang genug, um sie um einen stabilen Gegenstand zu wickeln, und doch kurz genug, um sie unter dem Sitz oder in einer kleinen Tasche zu verstauen. • Die Kettenglieder können zwischen mickrigen 6 mm und mächtigen 16 mm Durchmesser schwanken. • Die allgemeine Daumenregel besagt: „Je mehr Material der Dieb durchtrennen muss, desto sicherer ist die Kette“. Das ist im Allgemeinen auch richtig. • Das Material, aus dem die Glieder hergestellt sind, ist gewöhnlich jedoch wichtiger als der Durchmesser. Qualitativ hochwertige 10-mm-Kettenglieder, die korrekt behandelt wurden, sind wesentlich stärker als 16 mm dicke Glieder aus weichem unlegiertem Stahl mit der inkorrekten Behandlung. • Unabhängige Testeinrichtungen wie Thatcham und Sold Secure werden Ihnen die besten Hinweise zur Stärke einer Kette geben können. Schauen Sie nach dem Logo dieser Test-/ Prüfeinrichtungen auf dem Produkt.

Tout ce qui précède s’applique aussi au cadenas ; une chaîne ne vaut pas mieux que le cadenas servant à la fixer – et vice versa. Certaines chaînes sont livrées avec un cadenas intégré, ce qui est très commode. Antivols U Ils peuvent être incroyablement résistants, car ils comportent peu de pièces mobiles et leurs manilles peuvent avoir un diamètre atteignant 16mm. Cependant, leur utilisation est limitée, car, en raison de leur dimension, il est difficile de verrouiller le vélo sur un objet amovible, sauf en faisant passer l’antivol à travers une des roues. Certains peuvent s’installer sous le siège; vérifiez qu’ils conviennent pour votre vélo. Antivols Câble Ces antivols sont légers mais offrent une sécurité moindre, mais ils sont utiles pour les deux-roues, moins coûteux, et pour les personnes ayant un budget serré. Ils offrent une sécurité très inférieure à celle des antivols à chaîne, et ils conviennent probablement mieux pour verrouiller votre vélo ou vos accessoires. Antivols à câble blindé Ils sont performants, souples et légers, constituant un compromis entre un antivol chaîne et un antivol câble. Le câble est protégé par une couche de rouleaux ou de coupelles en acier. Les meilleurs d’entre eux ont passé avec succès des essais réalisés par des organismes indépendants, et ils sont appréciés pour leur commodité et l’absence d’un cadenas séparé encombrant. Les antivols disque Ils sont très populaires en raison de leur faible dimension et de leur facilité de transport; leur simple vue dissuadera le voleur occasionnel. Il y a un large choix de formes, couleurs, dimensions et types, mais leur fonction de base consiste à immobiliser la roue avant et à empêcher de monter sur votre vélo ou de le faire rouler pour l’emporter. Les vélos sécurisés uniquement par un antivol disque peuvent cependant être soulevés et mis à l’arrière d’une fourgonnette, mais si vous achetez un antivol avec une alarme déclenchée par un capteur de mouvements, votre vélo risquera beaucoup moins d’être enlevé. Pour bénéficier de la résistance maximum aux tentatives de vol, recherchez les logos Thatcham ou Sold Secure. Ancrages au sol Pour la sécurité maximum, il est essentiel de verrouiller votre vélo à un objet inamovible, sinon les voleurs sérieux soulèveront simplement le vélo pour le mettre à l’arrière d’une fourgonnette, et ceci se fera en quelques secondes. Il existe des ancrages au sol de toutes formes et de toutes dimensions (vérifiez que votre antivol peut passer à travers le trou prévu pour cela), mais leur but est simplement de fournir cet objet inamovible. Tout garage, stationnement et parc à vélos devrait avoir un ancrage de ce type pour chaque vélo. Thatcham et Sold Secure peuvent fournir des indications très claires sur les niveaux de sécurité assurés par les différents systèmes disponibles; ensuite, vous avez simplement à décider lequel vous convient le mieux.

Alle der obigen Argumente gelten auch für das Vorhängeschloss: Eine Kette ist nur so gut wie ihr Vorhängeschloss und umgekehrt. Einige Ketten haben ein bequemes Integralschloss. Bügelschloss Kann unglaublich stark sein, da es nur wenige bewegliche Teile aufweist und der Bügel einen Durchmesser von bis zu 16 mm haben kann. Das Bügelschloss ist allerdings in seiner Verwendung eingeschränkt, da seine Abmessungen das Sichern des Motorrads an einem fest installierten Gegenstand erschweren und das wirklich nur durch ein Rad möglich ist. Einige Bügelschlösser passen sauber unter den Sitz. Prüfen Sie Ihr Motorrad auf seine Eignung für ein Bügelschloss. Kabelschloss Nützliches Sicherungsmittel mit geringem Gewicht für weniger wertvolle Zweiräder oder Motorradfahrer mit schmalem Budget. Deutlich unsicherer als die besten Kettenschlösser und möglicherweise besser zur Sicherung Ihres Fahrrads oder Zubehörs geeignet. Kabelschloss aus armiertem Kabel Guter flexibler Kompromiss zwischen Ketten- und Kabelschloss mit geringem Gewicht. Das Kabel ist gegen Angriff durch eine Schicht aus Stahlrollen geschützt. Die besten Schlösser dieses Typs sind geschickt entworfen und können sogar Angriffstests durch unabhängige Prüfeinrichtungen bestehen. Sie sind aufgrund ihrer bequemen Anwendung ohne unhandliches separates Vorhängeschloss beliebt. Scheibenschloss Aufgrund seiner kompakten Abmessungen und Tragbarkeit sehr beliebt. Das Scheibenschloss ist eine gute optische Abschreckung gegen Gelegenheitsdiebe. Es stehen eine enorme Vielfalt unterschiedlicher Formen, Farben, Größen und Typen zur Wahl, doch ist seine grundsätzliche Aufgabe die Immobilisierung des Vorderrads gegen Wegfahren oder Wegschieben Ihres Motorrads. Motorräder, die lediglich mit einem Scheibenschloss gesichert sind, können weiterhin in einen Lieferwagen gehoben werden. Wenn Sie jedoch ein Scheibenschloss mit einem Bewegungssensoralarm kaufen, steigen Ihre Chancen, dass Diebe Ihre Maschine vermeiden werden, stark an. Wenn Sie eine höhere Widerstandsfähigkeit gegen Angriffe haben wollen, halten Sie nach Produkten mit dem Logo von Thatcham oder Sold Secure Ausschau. Bodenanker Zur maximalen Sicherheit ist es wesentlich, dass Sie Ihr Motorrad an einem unbeweglichen Gegenstand anschließen; anderenfalls werden Profidiebe die Maschine einfach in einen Lieferwagen heben und in Sekundenschnelle auf und davon sein. Bodenanker sind in allen Formen und Größen erhältlich. (Prüfen Sie, dass Ihr Schloss durch das Loch im Anker passt!) Ihr Zweck besteht jedoch einfach darin, als dieser unbewegliche Gegenstand zu dienen. In jeder Garage, an jedem Arbeitsplatz und auf jedem Motorradparkplatz sollten Bodenanker für alle dort geparkten Motorräder bereitstehen. Thatcham und Sold Secure machen eindeutige Angaben zu den Sicherheitsstufen der unterschiedlichen Systeme auf dem Markt. Damit brauchen Sie sich nur noch zu entscheiden, welches Schloss für Sie am geeignetsten ist.


Quale antifurto scegliere?

¿Qué candado elegir?

Catena È il dispositivo di sicurezza più comune poiché offre la migliore combinazione di resistenza e flessibilità. Le catene più resistenti sono in pratica impossibili da recidere e consentono allo stesso tempo di bloccare la moto ad un oggetto fisso come un lampione o un ancoraggio al suolo. Le catene sono disponibili in varie misure e lunghezze:-

Candado de cadena Es el dispositivo de seguridad más común porque ofrece la mejor combinación de fortaleza y flexibilidad. Los candados de cadena más resistentes son prácticamente imposibles de violar, y le permiten fijar la moto a algo inamovible como, por ejemplo, un farol o un anclaje al suelo. Las cadenas vienen en muchos tamaños y longitudes:

• La catena da 1,5 metri è la più usata, poiché è sufficientemente lunga da passare attorno ad un oggetto di dimensioni rilevanti e sufficientemente corta da poter essere riposta arrotolata sotto la sella o in una borsa piccola • Il diametro degli anelli può variare da una misura minima di 6 mm ad un valore notevole di 16mm. • La regola pratica dice che “maggiore è il materiale da recidere, più sicura è la moto” e, a parità di altre condizioni, il consiglio è valido. • Il materiale utilizzato per la costruzione degli anelli è importante tanto quanto lo spessore. Un anello di catena da 10 mm di alta qualità che è stato trattato correttamente può essere molto più resistente di un anello da 16 mm realizzato in acciaio morbido, di basso grado, sottoposto a trattamenti incorretti. • Enti certificatori indipendenti come Thatcham e Sold Secure potranno fornirvi le indicazioni migliori sulla resistenza di una catena. Individuate i loghi degli enti sul prodotto.

• La longitud más común es 1,5 metros: suficiente para enrollarla alrededor de algo sólido, pero suficientemente corta como para enrollarla bajo el asiento o en una bolsa pequeña. • Los diámetros de los eslabones van de unos modestos 6 mm hasta tremendos 16 mm. • Como regla general, “cuanto más material para cortar, más seguro es”; y a igualdad de otros factores, es cierto. • Sin embargo, es por lo general más importante el material del cual están hechos los eslabones que su espesor. Una eslabón de alta calidad de 10 mm que ha recibido un tratamiento adecuado, será mucho más resistente que un eslabón de 16mm hecho de acero blando, de baja calidad, que no ha recibido el tratamiento que corresponde. • La mejor indicación de la fortaleza de una cadena se la darán empresas de ensayos independientes, tales como Thatcham y Sold Secure. Busque sus logotipos en el producto. Todo lo anterior se cumple también para el candado: la cadena no es mejor que el candado que la asegura, y vice versa. Algunas cadenas vienen con un candado incorporado para mayor comodidad.

I consigli precedenti si applicano anche al lucchetto legato alla catena; una catena è efficace tanto quanto il lucchetto di cui è dotata, e viceversa. Alcune catene sono fornite con un lucchetto integrato per una maggiore praticità.

Candado en U Puede ser increíblemente fuerte ya que tiene muy pocas piezas móviles y el arco puede llegar a tener 16 mm de diámetro. Sin embargo es de aplicación limitada, ya que sus dimensiones implican que es difícil fijar la moto a un objeto inamovible salvo a través de una de las ruedas. Algunos caben muy bien bajo el asiento; verifique que su moto sea adecuada.

Lucchettone a U Per il ridotto numero di parti mobili e grazie ad un anello che può raggiungere i 16 mm di diametro, questo dispositivo può risultare estremamente resistente. L’uso è tuttavia limitato: per le sue dimensioni ridotte, infatti, è difficile fissare la moto ad un oggetto fisso, dato che il lucchetto passa solo attraverso una ruota. Alcuni modelli si incastrano facilmente sotto il sedile; controllare l’idoneità della moto.

Candado de cable Seguridad útil pero limitada, para vehículos de dos ruedas de bajo costo o para quienes cuentan con un presupuesto limitado. Es bastante menos seguro que los mejores candados de cadena, y probablemente más adecuado para proteger una bicicleta o sus accesorios.

Lucchetto a cavo Dispositivo di sicurezza leggero, è utile per proteggere motocicli non molto costosi o per budget limitati. Notevolmente meno sicuro delle catene migliori, è probabilmente più adatto per proteggere biciclette o accessori. Lucchetto a cavo armato Flessibile e leggero, è il miglior compromesso tra una catena e un lucchetto a cavo. Lo strato di rulli in acciaio del cavo protegge dagli attacchi. I modelli migliori sono ideati in modo da superare anche test di attacco indipendenti e sono rinomati per la loro praticità e perché risolvono il problema dell’uso di un ingombrante lucchetto separato.

Candado de cable blindado Una excelente y flexible solución intermedia entre un candado de cadena y un candado de cable. El cable está protegido contra ataques por una capa de rodillos de acero o “copas”. Los mejores modelos tienen un diseño ingenioso que les permite superar ensayos de ataque independientes, y son muy apreciados por su comodidad y la ausencia de un engorroso candado separado.

Bloccadisco Molto diffuso per le sue dimensioni compatte e la facilità di trasporto, questo antifurto si presenta come un buon deterrente per il ladro occasionale. Disponibile in una vasta gamma di forme, colori, dimensioni e modelli, funziona immobilizzando la ruota anteriore impedendo così che la moto venga guidata o semplicemente portata via a spinta.

Candado de disco Muy difundidos gracias a su tamaño compacto y portabilidad; ofrecen buena disuasión visual contra el ladrón ocasional. Disponibles en una variedad muy grande de distintas formas, tamaños, colores y tipos; su función básica es inmovilizar la rueda delantera y evitar que alguien se lleve la moto conduciéndola, o simplemente rodándola a mano.

Il bloccadisco non impedisce, però, che la moto possa essere sollevata e caricata all’interno di un furgone; acquistando un modello dotato di allarme con sensore di movimento, tuttavia, diminuiscono, le probabilità che la vostra moto venga presa di mira dai ladri. Per livelli superiori di resistenza agli attacchi, individuate i loghi di Thatcham o Sold Secure.

Las motos protegidas únicamente con un candado de disco se pueden igual levantar y cargar en una camioneta, pero si compra un modelo con alarma por detector de movimiento es más probable que su moto sea pasada por alto. Para obtener niveles más elevados de resistencia al ataque, busque los logotipos de de Thatcham o Sold Secure.

Ancoraggio al suolo Per la massima protezione, è essenziale bloccare la moto ad un oggetto fisso; in caso contrario, i ladri professionisti potrebbero semplicemente sollevarla e caricarla all’interno di un furgone facendola scomparire in pochi secondi.

Anclaje al suelo Para obtener máxima seguridad es esencial fijar la moto a un objeto inamovible; de lo contrario, un ladrón profesional simplemente cargará la moto en una camioneta y desaparecerá en cuestión de segundos.

Disponibili in varie forme e dimensioni (verificare che il vostro lucchetto passi attraverso il foro), il loro scopo è semplicemente fornire un punto di aggancio fisso. Ogni garage, ogni luogo di lavoro e ogni parcheggio per moto dovrebbe essere attrezzato con un ancoraggio al suolo per ciascuna moto.

Existen anclajes al suelo de todas las formas y tamaños; compruebe que el candado que elija, pase por el orificio provisto. En todos los casos, su fin es el mismo: proporcionar un objeto inamovible. En todo garaje, lugar de trabajo y aparcamiento para motos, debe haber uno para cada vehículo.

Thatcham e Sold Secure forniscono chiare indicazioni sul livello di protezione dei vari sistemi di sicurezza a disposizione; spetta a voi decidere quale sia il più adatto alla vostra situazione.
