    best lock you can get is insurance.

    true...

    but the insurance on my bike with theft coverage is just too high

    forgot the actual amount but i did the math and its not worth it

    i got my bike for $4,850

    ins w/ theft came close to it

    (if i had a new $12k bike id pay it in a heart beat)

    One of the best locks to use is a cover, for some reason, it deters thieves :hs:

    I use one w/ the combination of a disc lock.

    FULL COVERAGE WAS AN ADDITIONAL $2K OR SO

    Ouch I'm guessing your probably under 25 then? I use to pay about the same for liability and another $300 for fire/theft, now that I'm older I'm paying $3xx a year for full.

    I'd check into putting an alarm on it and some sort of disc lock. Niether is going to stop a determined thief though, I had a CBR stolen out of my locked garage with an alarm and disc lock on it. If you can swing a couple hundred for an alarm system consider one of the systems that page you if someones fucking with the bike.

    Try Progressive Direct, they were pretty cheap for me. I'm 24, 1200/yr for full coverage.

    Btw, locks are a waste. A lock won't stop them from lifting the bike into a truck and driving away

    The only lock i can recemend is the RoadLok motorcycle lock.
    Becuase it doesnt use a barell key (easily defeatable), or a standard pin tumbler lock. But instead uses a disc type Abbloy core, which is virtually pick proof, and very difficult to manipulate.
    The construction of the unit is pretty stout too. So someone would have a real pain trying to get it off.
