    easy and quick option is a disc lock. deters thieves on the off chance. otherwise as said - Almax. i seem to remember Zanx off visordown used to be a tester type person and he used to do stupid things to try and break them. expensive mind.

    Got my chain and lock today, not an Almax but one that should stand up to a bit of bashing.

    I am lucky I got the 1.5m (thanks for the suggestion) as its amazing how the length disappears once you get it round the wheel and then try and chain it to some immovable. I dunno why Almax would even consider a 7cm chain!

    I finally bought a chain bag for mine, went over my pillion seat (not like I need it), saves it being on my back, which weighs a bit, and would royally **** me if I had a proper off.

    I had mine delivered to work and I didn't even like the fact I was carrying it in my ruck sac.

    Good to hear, now remember to use it :)

    From the Almax site:
    "The Series III was designed to carry on your motorcycle, the shorter 0.7m was designed for bicycle owners."
