I forgot the chain and lock that I have for my bike but it costs like 200.00. It's awesome. I used it down here in El Paso before I got my house. I used to chain the bike up to a steel pole under an overhang / outdoor covered parking for cars, people that used regular chains you can get at the hardware stores and locks got their stuff stolen and it was parked right next to mine. The lock taht comes with this chain is like 'pick proof' and smash proof. The chain is actually like an octegon and you can't cut it. We have tried, trust me. The only thing that we figure would cut is is like a plasma cutter or smashing it after its gotten hit with liquid nitrogen!

I'll look tomorrow what it is though.

But I recommend NOT chaining the front wheel. it's still very easily to steal and the cost of a front time is NOT terribly expensive if they want to actually ride the bike and not piece it out. I would suggest, getting the chain I have and putting it around the swing arm or through the rear rim, that's a lot harder and more noticable if someone is trying to take the bike.

Looks like Honolulu is the worst for bike theft nationwide...can't believe that as it's a freaking small azz island!
Quote:
The study found Honolulu riders are most likely to have their bikes stolen, even though it's the 53rd largest metropolitan area. In fact, a motorcyclist in Honolulu is four times more likely to have a bike stolen than is a motorcyclist in Chicago or Detroit, which are the third and seventh largest metro areas in the country, respectively.
TONS of info about bike theft here. I'm less worried about leaving my bike in Cincy after reading through it

ND didn't make the list for the least likely to be stolen as there are only about 12 people up here... and we all know each other.

Didn't make the list for crashing either... If you crash on a straight flat road, with no trees around you for animals to hide in... well, I guess you may just be dumb.

LOL- GSXR most likely to be stolen and crashed... GO Figure! it's a squidxer
And guess what- least likely to be crashed are cruisers that travel at 5-10 under the speed limit.
