If you don’t have a garage to lock your motorbike away in at night or when not in use, your motorbike is likely to catch the eye of an opportunistic thief. Motorcycles are much easier to steal than cars and the theft rate is twice that of cars.

With so many bikes being stolen from the owner’s home, keeping your motorbike locked away is essential if you don’t want to become a victim of theft. Make access to your bike as difficult as possible. Keeping your bike secure will also benefit you with cheaper motorbike insurance, which is always a benefit.
There are loads of different ways in which you can protect your motorbike from theft, but wouldn’t it be best if a thief didn’t know it was there at all? Investing in a shed or garage for your motorbike is a great way to store your bike at home, away from prying eyes. A range of motorcycle storage units are available from Asgard. These motorcycle garages not only look inconspicuous but are highly secure.
