anti theft measures?

there have been several threads recently about bikes being stolen. what are good theft deterrents? i am going to be moving soon from the country to the woodlands, and while i doubt any woodlander wants my sv, i'd still like to have it locked up or secured in some way.
keeping the bike indoors is out, what about disc locks?
they are cheap, like $50 or so, and look like a pretty good way to keep a bike around.

i have heard that chaining your bike up to a pole isnt going to stop a theif.

i figure for just an sv, a disc lock would be enough though, right?

oh, btw, while looking at apartments i think i found a couple of mh'ers
pretty sure i saw caligone's bike a few weeks ago, and 2 days ago im pretty sure i spotted sloshedmrbones's blue 250 (only blue 250 i've seen)

I always use a disc lock, ALWAYS!!! the simple truth is this: If they want it they will take it. However, whatever slows them down and causes them to fumble around more will give you the advantage. I had a disc brake lock on my 2000 R6 and had it chained to a pole, there were 4 sportbikes parked in one spot that night, mine was the only one remaining in the morning. I also use ugly old bike covers instead of flashy new fitted sportbike covers. . .no one wants to steal an old beater!!!

Yes, mine is pretty visible. And sloshed/jenny are down the street from me.


I use a cable lock around the frame/seat/rear wheel and a disc lock on the front. Make friends w all your neighbors, including ones that are at home all day long.

Use a cheap cover also since 'out of view, out of mind' works wonders. I like the fact I have a couple in my spot. Otherwise I use to park my two door or the mercedes in the same spot at the one.

My mom works the opposing schedule to me, and the office is open till 6 so myself being so close the everyone working and such during the day works wonders. At night, if I go out, Im on the bikes.

remembers to atleast use one more lock than the other bike riders in your apt. All the riders in my complex are unchained so I atleast chain mine so hopefully the others get stolen first.

-1 wheel lock i forgot mine was on one night, rolled my bike forward and it snapped right off. a chain should be fine, i park mine outside my window, use an old holy cover, and if im worried about it, put a glass on the inside of the cover at the ground so if anyone disturbs the cover, they will knock over the glass getting alot of attention.

Bolt that down! Don't forget that it is a motorcycle and a few guys can pick it up throw in a van. "i figure for just an sv, a disc lock would be enough though, right?"<<<How many svs do you see at the track? Somebody might need parts Thats what I fear most owning a F4i that someone will take it and part it out to stunters
