If I'm actually worried about theft I bring it inside or just lock it up to something w/the ol' cable lock

I did actually install a "hidden" toggle kill switch, never bothered to wire it up tho, a buddy thought he'd mess w/me one day and flipped it to the "off" position, figuring he'd get a few lols as I tried to "fix" my bike... I vroomed off & didn't even know what he had done till the next day at work where he simply stated, "I guess your kill switch doesn't work..." lol

Little does he know that despite the fact his prank was "stillborn" - he's still thrown down the glove and one day when I get bored enough his coil wire is gonna "mysteriously" wander off
If you really want to get him replace it with a fake wire.
