I don't know the brand - but D locks are normally easy to break - even good expensive ones

A portable car straightening jack pops them open quickly and quietly and is reasonably portable to allow the scroats to get away your bike!

Chains are much more difficult - BIG chains!

Trouble is in the UK if they get hurt on your property - you are liable - even if your dog bites them when they are robbing you!

You end up going to prison for having a dangerous weapon (dog), your dog put down, and the scroat gets a fine!

Some of your USA laws are better! Where you can kill them if you feared for your life!

Gorilla alarm and the heaviest chain at Lowe's. It sounded like a gun going off in the store when they finally managed to cut one side of the chain link in the store (took about 30sec with their awesome hydraulic chain link cutter). I feel that would be sufficient to set off the alarm so the thieves get to listen to that as they try and make it through the second half of the chain.

i use a xena disc lock with a built in motion sensor with alarm. it's pretty sensitive and very loud so if someone tries to move the bike or remove the lock it goes off.

in the end nothing will stop a thief if they really want your bike. it's about making it inconvenient enough that they won't want to.

Insurance that covers theft is the best security.

That is a good option, but if you live in an area where there is high motorcycle theft, you will want to actually try and get the chain around the swingarm instead of just the wheel. I have seen several bikes (all gixxers) where they ran the chain or u-lock through the rear wheel and the thief just took off the rear axle and left the wheel but took the rest of the bike

what if you hurt them on your own property for trespassing? Is that legal? :confused:

I use a 12mm hardened through chain and a large kwikset smart lock as well as a bike cover when about. I think a cover is a great overlooked tool. I live in a nice community with extremely low crime rates, but figure better safe than sorry.
At home I have the bike chained to a staircase in my garage. I disconnect the cables to the two latches and then put a large padlock through each garage door track. I have a pet door so my 90lb German Shepherd has free range of the garage. If that doesn't work I have a nicely equipped gun safe next to my bed. I also live about 3 blocks from the police department.
I really feel for some of you guys, some areas have crazy theft. Be prepared and be safe.
