an enclosed trailer has exactly what you can see.
Plus if you're a real cocksucker, you can run wiring along the wall panels and run some capacitors in series off of some golf cart batteries to make it a really fun experience for anyone who tries to sawzall their way in.

does this method actually require taking a dick in the mouth?

Unfortunately so, but the reward in seeing some would-be thief get a strong enough shock to simultaneously shit and piss themselves, followed by some funky dance moves/convulsions would be worth it.

It's easy to keep me from stealing something. Just have it not belong to me.
That said, you won't find a lock or strap or trailer that can't be stolen/defeated.

This translates to "I would perform fellatio to watch someone get electrocuted"
Just sayin'.

Based on much of the logic in this thread, even having a lock on a trailer hitch is pointless. I think the point is to deter the stop/grab/and go thief. It would be easy for a tweaker with a buddy and a big truck in a small town like Shelton or Willows to unhook the bike and throw it into the truck. It takes a thief with a plan to cut locks and cables and drill out rivets to get a bike with a modicum of security. I'll be getting these or similar straps, and a good chain and lock, just because it offers just that much more for someone to take the bike.

these would not be bad to just stop someone but unless that is a cable running in the center of the straps a knife will cut right threw and be gone in seconds, best way is just get the cable locks not chain and use the rounds locks harder to brake or be cut with bolt cutters, and just lock it to the bed of the truck.

Not crapping on your parade Dan. You're right about the deterrent aspect.

Fact is that you can have a Desmo sitting locked up tight on an open deck trailer, and a couple of gixxers just strapped down with ratcheters; thief will ALWAYS go for the easy kill.

Now you are getting the hang of it. All you need is a pen lid or a basic pick set, a truck with a hitch and you can take the whole damn trailer, bike 'n' all because those locks are shit too!

Get a giant cable and nice pad lock. Loop it through the wheel to something. It's obvious enough to say, "Don't take me!" And stronger then the cables in those straps.

It took me about a minute to cut a medium size bicycle lock (4-5mm cable I think) with dull cable cutters, which is much bigger then the cable in those straps. Attach an alarm to the cable and you have one more deterrent.

I'm never too tired to protect my investment.
A set of bolt cutters from Harbor Freight and the straps and the lock in the Video are done. Enclosed trailer or, indoor storage.
Chain your bike inside the trailer.
DON'T Plaster Race stickers on the trailer. Noth'in say's "Open Me First" like advertizing what is inside. Anyone put a car alarm on their enclosed trailer?
Park the Trailer 'OUT FRONT' under the lights. NOT in a vacant poorly lighted lot adjsent to the motel.(Dumb)
