What helps for me is to make it as un-appealing as possible for thieves. Even at that, if someone wants it bad enough they WILL steal it.
I live in an area of my city that is, frankly, noted as being a nasty area for crime. Fortunately, it's pretty much drug related and not theft related. I park mine on my back porch with a monstrosity of a lock setup. A cable lock system that wraps around two firmly attached gas lines. Then it's locked down with a New York chain and u-bolt setup. I also have lights on and a camera angled that takes a photo every five seconds. I am considering putting a sign out there that says "PLEASE SMILE FOR THE CAMERA" so that these IDIOT thieves we have will actually look around for it. Most of the thieves around here aren't all THAT bright......
