I read as many previous security threads as I could, but didn't find a general conclusion as to what preventative measure works best. I have a garage at home but when out on the town, I am looking at the thick cable lock at my Honda dealer or the XENA disc alarm/lock. Any thoughts on these items?
first thing you always have to remember.... if a thief wants your bike, they are going to get it. personally i would go for the thickest and best quality chain i could find and chain it to any post or anything that is anchored.
Just have good insurance on it and you don't have to worry. The bike can get stolen in about 1 minute when you have it away from home. I don't think it is worth spending extra $$$ on locks and such. Do the minimal amount for the insurance company. Here in Canada as long as the key is not in the bike, it's covered. Personally I don't even have theft on my 9er. Not a big theft item up here, most theives go for the HD's. My 2 cents.
