Jake Machinal, who works for the CDC police, said that Batul told him he was a police officer when they first met. "I was going to put him in jail, but he shot at me. The guards at the mall started shooting at him," Machinal said.

According to the state Department of Motor Vehicles, the theft of motorcycles in New York City has increased dramatically, 63% last year. There were 985 motorcycle thefts in 2018, compared to 604 in 2019, which has recently issued neighborhood alerts about it. So, how can you keep someone from stealing your motorcycle or your car?

Think like a thief before you try to catch one. And the same idea works for keeping your motorcycle safe from thieves. If you look at different motorcycle theft prevention forums and communities, like Reddit and Quora, you might find some tips that really work to keep your motorcycle from getting stolen.

Lock Your Steering Lock

Even though it's easy to break, your bike's steering lock can be a first line of defense and make it harder to move the bike. Even better, if your scooter's ignition lock and steering lock are different, the thief will have to break two locks to get away with your scooter.

Don't Let Your Lock Touch The Floor

No matter what kind of lock you use, don't put it on the ground. A thief is more likely to be able to break it if it's on the ground. If you put the lock up and away from the ground, the thief probably won't be able to open it as easily. The lock or chain should be secured through the frame, fork, or wheel.

Use Disc Lock For Extra Protection

Motorcycle disk locks are small but strong locks that attach to the rotor of your motorcycle's disk brakes. The lock will keep the wheel from turning by preventing it from hitting the brake caliper or wheel forks. A disc lock might make it hard for people to ride their bikes for fun, but a determined thief can just lift the bike onto the back of a waiting truck.

Alarm Your Bike

Alarms might seem like a good way to get people's attention when someone is trying to steal your bike, but most people are so used to false alarms that they don't bother to look or even investigate. But everyone notices sounds of destruction, like glass breaking. When it falls over, a big stack of beer bottles connected by a wire makes a sound that everyone will want to check out.
