"Boom boom" ha ha walked into that one. I'll rephrase the question. What are members thoughts on 'physical security devices', chains, disk locks etc.

Returning to biking after a while, I never had a single bike which escaped unwanted attention from thieves, and all ended up with broken steering locks.

Maybe I was just unlucky and am naturally paranoid. That's what the wife keeps saying anyway.

I've had 2 bikes stolen and the feeling of walking around the corner to find its gone isn't on par with having your dog put down at the vets but a pretty close second.

I put a good quality Yale lock through the disc holes front and back but with the advent of the latest petrol driven metal disc cutters nothing is secure,my solution is to never leave them anywhere(aside from a race meeting)I don't even leave a bike parked outside the house they are either in the garage or I'm riding them.

Very noisy next door neighbours ones from the old East Germany Ex-police I think :084: and the others from North Korea funny hair cut and so on  :121:  :745:

CCTV back and front two gates to get to the workshop, hungry Rottweiler, galvanised 5mm steel door with 10mm angle iron cross strengthening, 10mm angle iron bars on the windows and alarms on the door and windows, chain and disk lock on the bike and BMW immobiliser.

Some say I'm paranoid   
After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.

Thanks for insight guys.

I've not used a disk lock in the past but a couple front and back seem a sensible option when out and about. Still considering chain option for garage.

For interest, Perusing chain options I happened across the following

  via @youtube

A bit of a cheesey test up, but also very surprising how vulnerable these hardened steel chains appear to be to (to an admittedly Goliath) set of bolt choppers! Typical time are in the range of a few tens of seconds.
