Motorcycle Thefts

Overall, motorcycle thefts were down last year by 6%. However, warmer states like California actually saw an increase. With more people going out riding in those warmer states, there’s more of a chance for their motorcycles to get stolen. It also happened that California had only about half the normal rainfall last year. That meant more opportunities to take their motorcycles out instead of other vehicles. Honda, Yamaha, and Suzuki were the top three makes stolen, so if you own one of those kinds, beware.
