Anyone seen this? Grip-Lock : Bright Security - Scooter and motorcycle lock

I think I'm gonna get me one! Looks to be simple yet effective.

Looks like a great idea, but if someone really wants 2 steal a bike they will. just requires 2 guys and a truck or van 2 throw the bike into.

Product looks to be very strong and durable.

I see it as a cheap form of deterrence. If it makes it harder to take than the bike next to it without this device, it may be worth it for 60 bucks.

I like it. Better then a lock through my rotor that could potentially, I'm not saying I did this, be forgotten about when pulling away leading to a bent rotor and near drop.

Ive never seen them bend a rotor, but a smashed brembo front caliper once, ouch!

I think the best is a thick cable lock through the swingarm and around a tree or pole, stops them loading it on a truck.

I've thought about getting one of these as like you said, a little deterrent. Of course like was mentioned if someone really wants your bike and are determined enough, they will get it. But, I also believe in the 99% of thieving assholes out there are just looking for a quick and easy job and would at least give your bike a second thought, which might be all you need.

I don't have a garage, so at night in my apartment complex I lock the handlebars and have two Bully brand brake locks, one for front and rear. Then I cover the bike. I know it sounds like a pain to do each night, but it makes me feel better, and that in itself is worth the money.

I think one of these grip locks would be a good idea to carry around with you running errands around town or what not, just to have as a simple deterrent.

Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

Exact same thread topic I started on the 1st. Only two responses to mine though. You must be more well liked.

Since you can lock the brake, someone would have to carry the bike to get it to a vehicle. More of a deterrent than nothing at all I guess.

That's funny... I even searched for a thread about this product before posting here? Didn't find anything!

My shop sells a few rotors as people ride off with the locks on. I stick piece of tape over the ignition switch key hole to remind me before I put the key in the ignition to remove the lock,

I saw an ad for that on Facebook. I know nothing stops all thieves, but anything that makes my bike harder than the next is a good thing. I never warmed up to the disc locks just cuz of the potential for forgetting it, and damaging your brakes when you may be a long ways from home.

Looks decent... For peace of mind... but $72? I donno. Like Wheelie said, it'll keep the honest people away.
