for what? a disc lock is a good visual deterrent for school/work/etc. When I lived in Apts. i would always use a concrete anchor and some chain.

I put a LoJack system on mine. Its expensive, ($700) but pays for itself in insurance savings at a 10% discount.. I will also put a pager system on it soon. I was told against it, as you dont want to confront a thief, he may have a gun. I told him "Do you think I would go out there with nothing? I have no problem helping society getting rid of thieves!" Being a son of a Marine Sniper, I was taught one shot, one kill... or two kills if you line 'em up!

Both would be great but if I had to make the choice between the 2 I'd say lock.
We sell Lojack for $650.00 installed. You may want to wait till later this summer when they're going to incorporate their "early warning" technology into the motorcycle Lojack system. I'm not sure what the price will be, but it's the best of both worlds.

save some money...and get lojack. you might get a not catch a criminal case for "gettin rid of the thieves"....but you will probably lose a civil suit and pay up big time.

I have used Xena for a little over a year now and it's worked great. In addition I use a cable lock system.

Down side is that three or four guys can still lift it and stuff it. F'N thieves only good one is a dead one. Kinda like lawyers.:icon_bigg

yea, most thieves probably aren't riding off with it, so the wheel lock just get's put in the truck with it and the alarm just keeps on ringing without anyone's attention...

+1, better than nothing. Mine works great. I test it once in a while and it works as it is supposed to.

get an alarm if you're trying to get a discount on insurance... but if you really think you can stop someone from taking your bike, with a disc lock or alarm, you are quite naive. As Rick said above....3-4 guys and guess who doesn't have a bike anymore!?!? I have actually seen it done with 2 guys! So, with that being said.... be smart and observant! That's your best bet (besides theft insurance)

Agreed because most bikes are carried away. However, it helps if one is close to the bike and may want to hear when someone is messing with it. The Xena disc alarm goes off even if the bike is just bumped.

For a good alarm, I'd probably recommend the Scorpio alarm.

^ which is the idea.. :-) If they have weapons, they can keep it... but at least then you can tell the cops to look for bike of your's description beeping/squalling....in the back of a truck.

Forget all that theft deterrant cause if someone wants it, they'll get it or mess it up in the process. Do yourself a favor, get comprehensive added to your insurance which is simply theft and vandalism. It doesnt cost that much (really, it doesn't) and the peace of mind is well worth it.

I dare someone to steal my bike now, cause I know it's covered and I'll just get a newer/better one cause insurance pays out top dollar for claims.
