I have a Kryptonite Stronghold Anchor that I had a contractor put in.


Then I thread Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Chain with Disc Lock through the frame.


I then top it off with a Xena XX-14 disc lock and alarm for added protection, plus noise for if someone touches the bike.


Obviously if someone wants the bike they'll take it. But the bike is  parked right outside my window and they'll need some noisy equipment to get through the locks, and the Xena is set off by shock or movement. So if they want to risk getting shot by my Kahr 9MM, they can try taking my 1098.
No trellis. no desmo. = Not Ducati.

What model Kahr?  I have one of the first-gen E9's.  Love it.  They are so underrated.

"Yelling out of cars, turning your speakers out the window to blast your music onto the street, setting off M-80 firecrackers, firing automatic weapons into the air—these are all well and good. But none of them create a merry atmosphere of insouciance and bonhomie quite like a revving motorcycle.

Note to all:  There is not a lock made that will stand up to a high speed Dremel and a metal cutting wheel.  I have had to cut several locks and cables over the years as I am bad with keys sometimes.  I have cut through some serious locks and chains in 30 seconds or less.  Pretty quiet also.

Two things I don't do.  Keyboard bullies and hypocrites.

I keep bikes that are low on the theft list.  Most European bikes don't gather any theft attention in central ohio.

I use multiple locks on front and back wheels. I chain and cable to another bike as well as some part of the garage structure. I have a lock with a motion alarm and one of the bikes has a motion alarm built in too. I cover the Duc as well. So, they can't just pick it up, can't just cut cables and then torch through the chain without one or both motion alarms going off, which, by the way get the six or so close by neighbors dogs all barking which always wakes me up if the alarms don't. In fact, the dogs bark whenever someone comes by late at night.

Multiple methods which deter and delay a theft make me sleep better at night.

I've heard of people who have the rideon unit on their bike actually using that to find the stolen bike(since the newer ones have GPS built into them primarily for giving you your ride route) as well as for one being able to find 2 chop shops the person who stole it went to.
