Angry how do you keep your bike safe?! poll

ok i see alot of people getting their bike stolen around houston, which i cant stand, and i hate efin thieves(worthless pos) and i was wondering what do you do to keep it safe? what works best in most opinions? i use a disc lock plus park it where i can easly see it, just because i have insurance dont mean its ok for some jackass to jack my ride...

even if you have a garage, make sure to lock the bike down, just because its in your garage your not home all the time, and if they follow you they can pop open the garage(little harder if you got a garage door opener ) and go inside.

most theifs i hear about they dont even mess with trying to start the bike, our bikes weigh 300-400 pounds on avg. so they just pick the thing up and walk it into a van or truck and go. lowjack and insurance and a garage are cheap and easy ways to keep it safe.

I ride it to work 90% of the time and we have a secure parking lot there. I would like to do the low jack but I have full coverage and don't see the need yet. Maybe when I get it paid off I will low jack it.

I picked garage, but also use a disk lock. I've got surveillance cameras around the house as well, including one surveying the garage door and driveway approach.
