Chain isn't going to do a whole lot other than maybe slow them down a little....and I mean a very little if they have the right tools.

Rule #1: If they want it, they're going to take it no matter what.

well i got an alarm system installed with a perimeter sensor -
anyone trying to cut the chain will have to get close to the bike which will turn on the alarm and my remote will start going buzzerk -

i would think that would give me enough time to get my gun out and walk out cursin like a ...

how does this storage deal work?

Personally, unless you park right infront of the office, where your neighbors watch your stuff and at least its hidden,

I would recommend a storage garage. I had one when in apartments at 1960/i45, on the main road, was 40 a month. I would just park the car inside the gate and swap them out.

if you have full coverage and trust the people around you, use a caliper lock up front, a cable lock in the rear with a reinforced cable lock to go through the rear frame and rear wheel; park it out of the way of normal traffic sight, and also so that it can't be moved w the steering wheel locked(hence reasone for caliper lock.)

last but never least, a cheap motorcycle cover from walmart... don't binge for a nice one, cheaper looking the better.

but as mentioned, if they want it, its theirs... at least the busa has some weight and my neighbors know my bikes

Its insurance not the warranty Don't know if all insurances do it but, Statefarm offers a side insurance with 0 deductible for add ons for bot cars and bikes. Plus GAP is a must have if you owe the bike.

Nah, we are just being whores lol I really like cylinder chains which look like cans stuck to one another the only thing is most have a locking cylinder so it could be easily picked but, the chain themselves are good. When I don't store mine she goes under a cheap car cover from autozone that distorts the image and is chained with a 6g kryptonite rope chain to a carport pole, then its still blocked in and pinned by my car. So they would have to move my car cut the chain lift the bike over a 5 or 6 inch curve carry it because the steering is locked more than a 100ft because there is no room between the cars and all this while passing by neighbors that don't seem to ever sleep and are always outside+ cameras that are actually recording in the entrance, exit, and one facing every coldusac(dont know if its spelled right). Trust me if they want it bad enough they'll point a gun to your head and say give me. Your best bet is just to make it hard enough so that you get enough time to load your gun and shoot the pieces of

Try to get a lock were the key looks like t and has cuts on all four sides those I hear are pretty hard to pick from some fellow fire fighter riders even with the right tools.
