Disc lock

Just a tip for those of you who have disc locks. GET A REMINDER CORD!!! I'm telling you from personal experience, because yesterday I forgot about my disc lock and it banged against my caliper. I thought it wouldn't be a big deal until I pull my front brake lever and NOTHING HAPPENED

I was one of those people who thought that I would never forgot but guess what: I forgot and paid for it dearly by having to get my front brake rotor replaced cause it was bent. Thankfully, there was a used rotor at Motorcycles Unlimited and they helped me out.

Anyway, just my 2 cents yo

I did that on my cruiser.
An idea that I use now is to always park head in AND put your disk lock as close to the caliper as possible.

This way if you forget, you'll know it as you're slowly trying to walk your bike back out of the parking spot and it immediately locks to a stop.

I would never back in to a spot and put the disk lock at the bottom of the disk. This gives you too much momentum before your lock meets your caliper.

lots of em






hahahahahha, I did close to that on my HD once, I was at lowes and had the steering head locked, stood bike up, i dropped it in gear and clutched out easily because i was intending to u-turn slowly where I was and drive out, as I finished my tight turn and went to straighten....well, good thing I was crawling and my left foot could pogo and keep up for a step or two. Lesson learned, it only happened once :-)

Aint no way I'd use one. To fraught with danger... (plus the chance of gouging the rotor)

2009 ZX14 -- STOLEN -- never recovered
2008 Hayabusa -- STOLEN -- frame recovered






I did that once and dropped the bike as a result. A "hop on and zoom" kind of scenario... Never again. Insurance is better than a disk lock.

After the first time, since I was just pushing the bike I luckily didn't do any damage. Then, I thought to myself that since I forgot once, I won't forget again. Yeah, it obviously didn't work out the way I thought lol

That's a great idea! I'll do that from now on. I just need to freaking remember to check my tires to make sure they're good everytime I ride anyway.

I just bought one with an alarm on it, that way #1 if someone sits on it the alarm goes off, and 2 if I start my bike the alarm goes off so it was worth the extra money to me.

Years ago I remember seeing something about a pilot using a "remove before flight" tag/banner/flag on his disc lock. You may be able to find something like this in a military surplus supply store.
