There seemS to be a spate of thefts just lately of parked up , unattended bikes around these parts What are people using as security , not in the garage if think mines as good as i can get it but when you are out and about ? that easy enough to carry without an added tralier and back up van

Not too sure but i think you can get an alarm that sends a text to your phone if its being moved etc but they can get them in a van so bloody quick i guess just buy the biggest/best lock and chain you can afford/carry and lock it to something solid and keep it up off the ground to make cutting it harder! and try to park in busy well lit areas if possible.

Never let it out of my sight except for short periods when out and about. A visible lock just tells the scumbags you are not watching it! :roll:

Ok so that's being super careful, but like tone say's; on occasion when l had to leave it l put a high tensile sleeved cable with high security lock around a large imoveable object in public place where a thief trying to cut it would result in a lot of attention. ;)

I've always found if I leave the key in the X1's ignition, it'll still be there when I come back. lOl This method has worked for all my Buells back to '92.

I bet good money that if thieves broke into my garage the only machine left there would be the M1.
Whatever you do don't fit an alarm.

well the more locks you put on it , the longer it takes scumbags to get them off
so a secure lock chain combo & disc lock minimum..how much money do you want to spend

however Buell's are not as worth nicking as R1 etc...so park it near one, then they will nick that instead hopefully

On my M2 I used to use a folding link lock, kept in a small pushbike saddlebag strapped to the rear right foot peg hanger.

PS - I'm still using it. Looks like it originally came with its own bag :-
