Motorcycle Lock Chains
Using a strong, purpose built security chain to prevent your bike from being stolen is usually the most popular method amongst bikers, as it is an age old way of locking it up and high quality chains can now be purchased for relatively cheap prices. Chains are also useful as you can secure your motorbike to fixed items such as a lamppost, rail, or ground anchor making it even harder for thieves to get away with your motorcycle. However, good quality motorcycle chain locks can weigh quite a bit (which is usually a good sign of the quality of the material) meaning that they might not be your first choice if you have no luggage on your bike and don’t want to carry a rucksack just for your chain.
Motorcycle Disc Locks
Disc locks are the smallest and easiest way of deterring thieves, and work well to prevent your bike from being wheeled away. They also tend to be the cheapest security device that you can get for your bike, along with being the most convenient, thanks to their small size they can be taken with you nearly everywhere, whatever you ride, making them a perfect solution for locking your bike up while you’re in the shops. The main drawback of disc locks are that they don’t do much else other than prevent your wheel from being turned, unless you go for an alarmed version which sounds when the disc lock is tampered with. However, don’t let that put you off getting one as they are a great security device that doesn’t break the bank!
Motorcycle Ground Anchors
When it comes to keeping your motorcycle securely where you want it, whether that’s on your driveway or in a garage, there isn’t a better way to do it than installing a ground anchor. This is because of the durability and strength that anchors have meaning that they are tough to cut and there would need to be a lot of noise over a long period before they could be removed; this makes them a thief’s worst nightmare. Unlike other well-known forms of bike security like disc locks, chains, and alarms; anchors prevent your motorcycle from being lifted off the ground and in to a van which is another favourite tactic for thieves. Although ground anchors are a fixed security tool, they are the best option if you store your bike out on a driveway or in a garage as once they are securely bolted or permanently concreted in to place they are near impossible to move, which is what we all want for our bikes.
Just like any other type of alarm, motorcycle alarms are the best way of deterring thieves and keeping your pride and joy safe. Alarms for motorcycles are designed specifically to run for prolonged periods from the battery on your motorcycle without drawing too much power that would stop your bike starting when you get back on it; whilst still letting off ridiculously loud sirens when the bike is tampered with by unwanted hands. The majority of motorcycle alarms work using sensors that sense movement and will sound the alarm when the bike is moved past a tolerance level or moved at all, depending on the system you choose. Bike alarms are built to sit stealthily within the bodywork of your motorbike so that anyone who approaches your bike will not be aware of the alarm system.
