Most people don't even lock the forks much less hairpin lock or chain the rear wheel, which would make potential thieves
pick it up and carry it, which is much more obvious than rolling one up a ramp into a van.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!

He rode from Michigan to Austin, Texas to attend MotoGP. This is one of my greatest fears, getting my motorcycle stolen from the hotel parking lot when I travel.
I also worry about that in those hotel lots. A couple of months ago when I took my bike to the track I strapped/locked it to the trailer which was locked to my SUV. I still thought wow if they steal it it'll be a lot of work. After about an hour, I stopped worrying because I have full coverage so it it happens, I'll have a check within a month.

Several years ago at a hotel in Indy, someone broke the fork lock on my buddy's Wide Glide late one night. They didn't get it totally unlocked but twisted the forks trying. We had to loosen all the pinch bolts and the axle and straighten out the front end so he could ride it. He ended up having to buy a new bottom yoke to fix what the inept thieves screwed up.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!

The 14R doesn't seem to be a high target bike. Resale sux.
Maybe it was an EZ steal.
I could think of a dozen other bikes I would rather steal during that big event

Is that because you already HAVE a 14R?
