I APOLOGIZE FOR THE LENGTH, BUT THIS IS IMPORTANT TO ME! ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!
I am going off to college soon.
I would like to take my bike (probly not till second semester though, gotta get me sea legs you know), but I have no idea how to manage everything.
PA laws are different from Ohio (where I am now), but I don't think I would have any trouble. I would talk to campus police beforehand anyway.
I just don't know about where to keep it. I could lock it up (there is a bike lock outside of my dorm hall), but I still worry. There is a camera, and the campus is rated to have some of the lowest crime rates ever (very small, catholic school), but it is still in a crappy part of the city (not to offend anyone).
I would likely buy a GPS tracker for sure.
But I even contemplate going further - wiring a stun gun so that vibration for more than 1 minute (meaning someone would have to be riding it) would set the shock to the handlebars (poor rider lol). Is that illegal?
I was told that if a bike is "nice" enough, the RA will maybe let them keep it inside in the basement, but with gasoline?.............I don't know about that.
Just wondering if anyone has done it and could give me some tips!
