    Hi,
    Im looking for advice on which security devices (especially chains) that people would recommend.
    Is it worth the additional expense of an 'insurance approved' device? Does such a device offer enough insurance premium discount to be worthwhile?

    Im aware that nothing can stop a determined thief, just wondering if its worth me buying a new device, or just stick with an old magnum chain i already own.
    Scooter will most likely never be left in high risk areas.

    Thanks in advance!

    Anything at all as a deterrant is worth it.
    If it does go missing then the insurance can't complain that you didn't do enough to protect it.
    As you've already said, a determined thief.....................
    You've only got to look at the video's on utube to see they don't give a rats ass who's watching.

    I use a good old Oxford lock and chain all the time, secured to a wall anchor at home. I would imagine a sledge hammer could smash the shackle (eventually) but its not something you can fit in your pocket! Not amazingly high tech I know but its pretty secure. Or they could just unbolt the wheel I suppose! Any thieves reading this, don't ask where I live please.

    A good security feature for any bike owner - is not to tell other's what you've got...;).
