I don't think there is much anyone can do about dedicated bike thieves, but the act of stealing a trike is going to attract more attention since they are not as common as bicycles. Personally speaking my trike is on the bike registry site, serial numbers recorded on frame and major parts, and I have homeowner's insurance... I use heavy duty u-lock and cable for locking up in my own garage, and a combination cable lock for when I run into the store. If I'm in an iffy part of town, I will bring my u-lock and lock the frame to the bike rack, in addition to the cable lock. Can't think of what else to do with that setup. The front wheels don't come off easily, the back wheel is quick release so it is generally locked in with the u-lock and frame. A bit different than a bicycle, and not as many options for locking...
What do you call a cyclist who sells potpourri on the road? A pedaling petal-peddler.
