    If a thief wants to get into your under seat storage, they will get in. Locks only keep out the honest people.

    The point is, on a scooter without the flexcase, the thief doesn't know if there's anything worth stealing under the saddle. If the flex case is expanded, you're advertising to the whole world that you've got SOMETHING in there. THAT'S the difference.

    Good point. I also always travel with an over-the-shoulder strap for my case if using one or I carry a back pack so that all the valuables can go with me when I leave the bike out of sight; which I frequently do as I have a tendency to park, walk/hike, and explore.

    Has anyone here actually had their luggage compromised? I frequent San Francisco, Oakland and east San Jose and have never had my stuff messed with. I just wonder how prevalent an issue it really is. If I feel that I'm in a real dodgy neighborhood, I put my half cover on, and viola, one doesn't even know what's underneath. it just becomes a grey blob. Although in some areas with cold wet weather and homeless you should not use the cover as it will get stolen if not secured and built into an all weather shelter for someone and their shopping cart.

    In the United States, I haven't heard but apparently it is a prevalent enough problem in Europe according to Skutorr's post. Wouldn't put it past our thieves to catch on to this either but then again, it's not like the C600 Sport (or ANY big scooter) is that common a sight here either.

    It's a problem endemic to Europe, et al. The Spanish Tmax site even has a "Motos Robados" (Stolen Bikes) page, it happens so often...
