You could consider alarming your garage door if you want to go the whole way.
I don’t understand why there isn’t a lock that makes your phone alarm if broken/tampered with. It can’t be that hard, the circuits broken the phone alarms. Most of the time you’re very close to your bike and could possibly beat the living daylights out of them.... I mean scare them off and call the police....

That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Get two disc locks, one for each wheel.

If someone really wants your bike they will get it, no method is unbeatable, so security is about putting opportunist thieves off whilst not making yourself so paranoid that you spend as long locking it up as you do riding it.

A disc lock takes ten seconds for you to put on or take off, but using two doubles the effort for a thief while still be relatively trivial for you. I have a basic small one which I put on the rear wheel, and a Xena alarmed one for the front.

I used to carry a chain around but rarely used it, so now only take it when I know I will be. In part though the value of a chain is when you have something to lock the bike too, otherwise it is just a less convenient disc lock.
I use two disk locks and a big alarmed disc lock with a chain, bike also has a sensor on it that tells people to f**k off if they go near it and a tracker attached to it as well, It's all about making it reaaaaallly hard for them to take.
I like the "tells people to F*** O** sensor, what make details please?
Hahahaha, I wish that were an actual thing because I'd buy it, it's just a standard sensor, if people go near the f**k it bleeps like mad essentially saying "F*CK OFF F*CK OFF F*CK OFF F*CK OFF"

Can anyone recommend a good alarmed disc lock, one that's likely to show up in insurance quotes drop boxes

I've got an Oxford Boss Disc Lock, it's a big f**k and makes a noise. As with any Oxford product the first beep is very loud and the actual alarm is a lot quieter for some dumb reason, but regardless, alarm will do f**k all to scare away ***** that want your bike anyways, it looks like it'll take a fair bit of damage before it lets anyone get your hands on it, Thatcham approved as well so should give you discount on your insurance.

Agreed, it made no difference to me. But if you declare it then you must always use it. Forget that one time, and they can use that as a reason to not pay out.

That said, you should still definitely get a good one for the security benefits.
125s are fun.

Having any amount of money off is worth it in my eyes, I will always be using security on my bikes to protect them from thieving bast*rds anyways, so why not buy decent quality ones that drop your insurance down just that little bit extra. I've got a lot of security on my bike, it all adds up.
