Spend a little more and get one that has an alarm. I have Xena that works well.

Won’t really stop someone from jacking with your bike but just another layer of annoyance.

The alarm will also help remind you to remove it before you take off.

I was told by a bike theif to use the brake disc wheel lock. The theives have no choice but to hoist it up to take it and that takes time, guys, and a lot of visuals. Too much work!!!

Pitbull works out just fine. I use it when I cant park it in front of where Im going. I have a regular one, and looking back I shouldve spent some more and gotten the one with the alarm, so that you dont forget its on.

Its not about making your bike unstealable, its about making the one next to it seem easier.

I have a friend who had his GSXR-1000 stolen with a disk lock on it. They must have lifted the bike into a van.

What is his name and address, what does he drive... Give me a good description so I don't break the wrong set of knee caps!

It won't hurt.

The other day I heard the alarm go off and ran outside. I saw my dad sitting on my bike. He had come into town for graduation and thought he'd test sit the bike secretely but he got busted. :laughing6

It is a Xena disk alarm and it goes off when someone just barely bumps the bike (accidentally set it off once by barely hitting hit with the car door). It may not deter serious thieves but I like it either way.
