Default Locking bike

Sorry to ask but don't have time now to read the manual. Wonder if you can tell me how to lock the bike. I looked under steering column, ignition, at front of bike near dash. I have a very angry stepdaughter that I do not trust, and she is pretty hot that I bought the bike. Long story I will spare you the details. thanks

You spared us the details, but we're left wondering what bike you've got. Year, model?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Lock the bags and walk away. If you got the locks for the hard lowers lock them too if you're stashing anything in them. There is no fork lock from the factory but Victory recently started selling them as an accessory. Of course you may not be able to ride your shiny new bike after paying an arm and a leg for a lock you don't really need.

Fork locks on bikes are pretty much pointless; someone parks a van next to your bike 3 or 4 people get out and heave it in - 30 seconds later the bike is gone and the fork is still locked.

If you want to feel secure get good insurance. If that isn't enough buy a Digital Guard Dawg system (search the forum for Guard Dawg).

Sorry to hear about the situation but it sounds like fork locks would only prevent it moving, not necessarily any other damages. You may want to get a motion sensor-type of alarm system that would go off if she moves it even a little without it being turned off. Either than or put a section of chain link fence in the garage to isolate the bike from her...

Thanks for the replies! That answered my questions. In anticipation of a possible problem, from dealer yesterday picking up bike I called and added complete coverage. At least for a month until the rage settles down! Long story short. My wife/ her mom had a fatal disease for a yr. Died recently, and I had life insurance,spouse coverage, from work that I paid for monthly. Step daughter wanted some money. B%#$%$ ich.

Maurice - Sorry to hear of yours and her loss. How long were you married before her passing? I guess we should have asked. How old is the step daughter & does she live with you? My original thought was that you were still married and that a teen aged daughter might be looking for retribution for you having (recently) married her mom and taken after her mother's attention from her but that doesn't sound like the case. You have to remember that she just had HER mother die so like you, she is in mourning.

Since you and your step daughter don't get along, she may have felt that the ONLY inheritance she might get would have been with her Mom's passing. If you do still take care of her, she is in your will & if you did materially get something out of the entire event (like a house she came into the marriage with), then you may want to re-assure her that she will be looked after in your will.

Of course, if her mom had arranged for a will prior to passing, none of this would be an issue as she could have outlined EXACTLY what the daughter was "due" in a legal document. If all that was done and the daughter DID get something but wants more well then... Yea, she sounds like a captial B and better enough left alone and protect YOUR property to the point of potentially putting restraining orders against her.

As you can tell, I have some experience in a similar situation which is the only reason I even wrote this small portion. Hope you get everything straight between the two of you as family is more important than "Things", even distant families...

If you don't want the bike to move go to Roadlok http://roadlok.com/victory_locks.html and buy 1 of these. This is a disc lock that stays mounted on your bike and unlike most disc locks won't let your bike move at all. That's good because with some of them if you forget to take the lock off you can mess up you forks, wheel, or discs. Worse case scenario the bike could spit off over the handlebars.

Sorry to hear about your wife and the problems it has caused with your step daughter. Maybe throwing a little $$ at her will help calm her. That is unless she's one of those people that will keep coming back for more. I that's the case I can understand why you would spend it rather than give it away especially if it's for a purchase your wife would have liked to share with you.

Best of luck!

Rent a small storage unit near by for a few months and park your bike there. If I was in your situation that's what I would do. That's the only way you can prevent her from causing damage to the bike. All the locks in the world will not do bit of good if she decides to take a hammer to your bike.
