BIKE SECURITY QUESTION

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.

pour a mini concrete pad, or install a wheel lock in the floor, and cable it to the floor, my 2 cents

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.

I have decent insurance and gap as well. If they want it, they will get it no matter what. Quite honestally, I don't care if someone takes my bike.

I do like my bike but at the same time there are others out there. I think that if I had to get another bike, it would be a ducati monster 696. I LOVE those bikes!! :-D

that big 150$ kryptonite chain worked great when they stole my cbr1000rr...

but when they recovered the bike 2.5 months later the chain was missing...

locks are made to keep out honest people (and the dumber ones too)

keep your insurance paid and enjoy your bike.. then if its stolen you get a new one thats how i got my 9er..

I spoke with Al, he is quite a character you enjoy doing biz with. Got the 16mm and anchor.
