Motorcycles are fairly easy to steal because they are light enough to be picked up or wheeled away if not by one person, then several. They can be transported hidden from sight in a van. Therefore when leaving your motorcycle you should always use (at minimum) the steering lock. You should also consider using additional locking devices such as a U-lock, disc lock or chain. If possible fasten it to an immovable post or another motorcycle.

Consider getting an alarm and some form of GPS tracking if you have an expensive motorbike. Park in well-lit, busy areas. If possible, park it on your property at night, preferably locked in a garage.
