Yes, you should register your bike. If you're in school, then register it with your campus police. I don't know what city you live in, or how your police force is, but ours will register it I'm pretty sure for little to nothing.

Pros:
The police have your serial no and description so if you get your bike stolen, then its way less hassle and more legit.
Also, my girlfriend got her bike stolen one time. I was so furious that I set out on my bike to find it. And guess what, I did. But, we didn't have the serial number on file so it took almost two weeks, a polariod picture of the bike, and interviews to get it back. If we would have had it registered, we would have gotten it back within the hour.

Cons:
It takes a whole hour or so out of your life.
