Your Security Measures

I am planning to purchase a brand new motorcycle that I'm sure will attract some attention. Problem with that is there is always a certain risk of theft. So my question is, what measures are you taking to protect YOUR motorcycle from theft?

I have a friend who has an alarm / pager for his bike, and, apparently, at the moment's notice his pager goes off he automatically reaches for his heat.. (Haha..) I've heard of bike chains as well, but I would assume that those would be easily destroyed if the thief is determined enough. Then again, with enough determination a thief can get away with almost anything in the bike world, huh? Hmm..

CHL+45 but really, you live in a apartment, put it inside or in a garage and park your car in front of it. Chains, disk brake locks, Low-jack, park in populated areas, theft insurance b/c you will never stop a determined thief unless you stop him your self.

For now just parking in my garage with both cars blocking it in at night. If one of the cars is left in the drive way over night I take the garage door opener out of the car. Easy steal if you leave the opener in the car in the drive way. Will add more security later. Have full coverage on the bike as well.
