    after trying to find decent reviews for bits of security (chains/locks/covers) and struggling, I got thinking it may be an idea to have reviews/reccomendations for this sort of thing?

    Use a regular insurer,might want to check if it's
    on their 'approval' list as well!, or you could be
    blowing your money! ;) .

    in the end went with oxford gp chain lock, oxford mini t disc lock, and a cheap cover and cheap anchor.

    should be enough to deter the opportunist

    nah, that would be the organised one not the opportunist.

    the organised one will get what ever they want no matter. where as the opportunist would have a look. and swiftly give up.

    at my work theres 3 other bikes. and i dont think any of them bother with locks/chains. theyd go long before my beat up old thing with 2 locks

    the biggest problem where i live, is finding some place to chain your scooter to.
    I feel that we all need dedicated motorcycle parking bays, complete with ground anchors. people around here winge when you park on the pavement, to use the railings as a secure base..:)
    even sainsburys staff complain, when you use the cycle rack under cover, but cycle bay is in the open with no secure holding. o_O

    yup it can be a worry. i moved from a car parking space today, to a tiny space for nothing because there was a bar conencted to the ground.

    oxford hardcore chain and padlock do the job, take ages to get through (don't ask how I know) well worth the £30 on ebay. coupled with a oxford ground anchor almost impossible to get through I reckon.
    if the thieves were to get through that, data tool alarm - you cant kill the things, people say they have issues with them going off constantly but I had one on a rs50 I had, never had any problems heres a video to show how indestructible they are -
    also put a tracker somewhere hidden on the bike - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MOTORCYCL...68?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item41733b4f8c had one of these too - worth the money and easy enough to fit
