Ural M70Honda Gold Wing

Why It Won't Be Stolen: At 904 lbs (curb) and 99.1 in. in length, the Gold Wing is an exceptionally heavy, exceptionally large motorcycle. Loading it into a van or a truck when you have the key and using engine power is hard enough. Without? We'd wager it would be impossible. While the Gold Wing is one of America's best selling motorcycles, owners like to upgrade, not replace stock parts, so there would by little value in selling, say, the standard shock on Craigslist.

Ural M70

Why It Won't Be Stolen: Another heavy, huge bike. Not only will one of these not fit into the back of a pickup or Econoline van, but tiny sales volumes and a passionate owner base means there's simply no market for stolen parts.Triumph Rocket III Roadster Plus, they look like something straight out of World War II.

Triumph Rocket III Roadster

Why It Won't Be Stolen: Another heavyweight at 803 lbs and 2, 300 cc, and another relatively rare motorcycle. Because the Rocket doesn't really share significant components with other, lesser, motorcycles there's limited demand for its parts. Too difficult to steal with little payoff makes this bike relatively safe.

Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 8V

Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 8V Why It Won't Be Stolen: In revised, 8V form, the Norge is actually a really great sport tourer. But, those Dame Edna headlamps and bulbous styling do it no favors with either customers or thieves. It's a big ol' thing too, at 566 lbs (dry) and hails from a relatively rare brand. There's little street recognition of what it is, so thieves will just pass it by.

Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 (Not Actual Size)

Why It Wont Be Stolen: The biggest ADV bike out there, it weighs 586 lbs and, when fitted with its plastic panniers, is several inches wider than a Gold Wing. Good luck getting this thing into a truck. Limited sales equal little demand for stolen parts.

Victory Vision Tour

Victory Vision Tour Why It Won't Be Stolen: You guessed it, this thing is enormous. 869 lbs (dry) and 103.5 inches long. Good luck pushing this beast down the street, much less loading into another vehicle. To top it off, Victory has sold fewer bikes in its entire lifetime than Harley sells in one financial quarter, so there's just not going to be huge demand for one of those Buck Rogers headlights.

Honda Rebel 250

Why It Won't Be Stolen: See? It's not just heavy bikes that are theft proof. Honda's ubiquitous learner bike has been around largely unaltered since 1985 and, well, just doesn't meet the desirability standard necessary to make stealing one a compelling thing to do. There's so many of them out there, for such low prices, that you could likely buy an entire bike on Craigslist for less than the minimum payoff thieves require to justify the effort.

Harley-Davidson Tri Glide Ultra Classic FLHTCUTG

Why It Won't Be Stolen: Harleys do get stolen, but who'd steal a 1, 157 lbs trike? I mean, what would you do with it after? Fence to to a drug dealer?
