My opinion is that the bike thieves aren't interested in Beemers. Most of the bikes that get stolen are rice burners. A buddy left his beat to crap GSXR 750 (that had been spray painted flat back and dropped a zillion times) on the street and it got stolen 4 weeks ago. Go figure. The urban crowd likes the street bikes and stealing bikes is a great way to replace a blown motor. Again, I don't think there is much of a market for Beemers with them.
Yeah that's another good thing about most beemers, nobody wants to steal one. I worry more about someone knocking it over by accidently backing into it. I would have a problem with my bike living outside, I keep mine in the garage plugged into a battery tender when I'm not riding.
