I wonder how many thefts steering locks actually prevent as opposed to just taking out the key. Especially with a V-strom - given how long it takes to sell a used one, I don't see them being prime targets for thieves. Do people actually grab a bike and push it into a truck? It would take several strapping guys to do that. And if someone was that prepared to take your bike, they would know they could just snap the lock.
