I never leave my lid or my carry-ons... on my bike...unless it's in clear site all the time... and I'm only going to be there for a few minutes... To easy for stuff to get Jacked even with the D link on most bikes... Just don't do it... You can get one of those Icon Bags that will strap you helmet to it or something cheaper that you can just carry it along with you...

[email protected] everyone else... they won't replace it if it gets jacked... do you have a spare 200 to waste on something you already paid for....

I take my helmet with me at work and school where I'll be away from the bike for several hours at a time. If I just go into the store for a few minutes or something I'll leave it strapped on the bike under the seat. Don't worry about what anyone else thinks though... they're not the ones that will be paying for a new one if it gets jacked. Sounds like a good idea though if you can put it in a backpack and leave it in one class, or even carry it with you in the bag.

Get a lock for it... and secure it somewhere.. most schools should have a bike parking area... so look for it... Just remember it only takes two strong cats to carry off a 500 LB bike... try to do everything possible that will make it more diffcult for them to do that...

talk to administration and see if there is somewhere that they would let you park it where it would be out in the open so that there would be less of a chance of people messing with it. that's the downside of having nice things, there's always some jealous pricks that have to steal/vandalize it. that's why i quit driving my car to school, i was tired of having it keyed and have food and crap thrown on it. it seems like you just can't have nice things...

thieves and vandals

Walk... j/k As far as I know there is nothing that you can do, to prevent it from getting knocked over... You have the side stand... and some bikes have a Center stand... other then that... your guess is as good as mine... But if somebody does... Just K-T-A... and that will spread no to mess with your SH__ !

Edit: Get some Frame sliders ASAP... to reduce the fall damage
