According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, California beat all other states in the USA with the number of motorcycles stolen during 2005 ! Guess that's the price you pay for living in paradise.

1.    California - 9,110
2.    Florida -6,324
3.    Texas -5,755
4.    North Carolina -3,053
5.    Ohio -2,573
6.    Arizona -2,464
7.    New York -2,195
8.    Indiana -2,186
9.    Georgia -2,159
10.   Pennsylvania -2,021

The complete list for 2005, as well as 2004, is available at http://www.nicb.org.

Throughout the USA, 70,613 motorcycles were stolen in 2005 which is a slight decrease from the 71,108 stolen in 2004. This represents a loss of over $434 million to motorcycle owners and the insurance industry.

Motorcyclists often lavish great attention on their rides, from elaborate paint schemes and chromed parts to specialized frames and high- performance engines and exhaust systems. It's not uncommon for a motorcycle's base price to exceed $20,000 with aftermarket parts adding thousands of dollars more to the original cost.

With recovery rates typically in the 25-30% range nationally, motorcycle owners need to take every precaution in protecting their investments.
