Is it usual to take motorcycles in hotel rooms? Afraid of thiefs?
I am asking, because I never saw this in Europe.

Not usually, at least not for me, but in this case there were a few issues:
1) the area I was in was pretty deserted and a bit sketchy
2) my bike was the only vehicle in the motel parking lot while I was there
3) the parking lot was in full view of the adjacent two lane highway
4) there were some locals hanging about after dark nearby

I put all these together and decided I'd rather be safe than sorry, so I wheeled her in for the night. I've had two bikes stolen in the past, and I'm NOT up for a third.

In this case, I would have done the same.
