I've thought about doing something like that, but if I'm really nervous about where I'm leaving the bike I shift it into a high gear (4th, 5th or 6th) and switch the headlight all the way off. On the Baja Designs handlebar switch I have the bike won't run with the switch in that position. I figure most thieves won't know that, and even if they figure it out they're going to make a lot of noise stalling out repeatedly before they ever find a gear they can take off in.
