How do I stop my motorcycle falling over in the wind?

Hello Everybody,

I have a light weight motorcycle and park on the road outside my house. During windy weather conditions my bike often gets blown over to my annoyance. Is there a device or piece of kit I could buy to secure the bike so it doesn't get blown over? If anyone having any idea relating this topic please suggest me.

Best Regards,
Anthony Martello

@AnthonyMartello,
Wow that must be one light bike, but you could try two cargo straps to secure each side of the handlebars to the ground.

@AnthonyMartello,
You sure you own a motorcycle, and not just a drawing of one? 'Cause unless you live inside a wind tunnel, that is highly unlikely.

Anyone who owns a light/small motorcycle and leaves it permanently by the roadside is likely to own a stolen motorcycle AKA soon will not be owning a motorcycle at all. All motorcycle owners who have a working brain know this. Ergo you are not a real motorcycle owner. Real motorcycle owners know to store away their precious two wheeled vehicles.

@AnthonyMartello,
Too funny! If that motorcycle is that light, then someone can just pick it up and walk away. What is windy? Hurricane winds?

@AnthonyMartello,
Are you sure you're not in a fantasy world and you really have a bicycle but are dreaming it's a motorcycle?

@AnthonyMartello,
I would definitely put an engine in it as soon as possible.

@AnthonyMartello,
Come on you're joking right? Even if you have a 50cc dirt bike the winds would have to be a constant 30 miles per hour or more to do that. Are you sure vandals aren't doing that? Why are you parking your bike on the side of the road? Bring it closer to the house get some ropes or straps and tie it down to something. I hope you keep it locked up with a heavy duty chain and lock and/or a U-lock or both. Look on you tube for some of the recommended type locks and how to secure them properly to hopefully slow down or deter a thief.

@nythawk,
I live in Wellington New Zealand and this is definitely a thing. You guys obviously haven't experienced real wind yet.
