anchor points in m.c bays

why aren't there any?!

i've had the SV 2 years now and fortunately it's not been stolen.  I want a 600/1000 sports but my biggest concern is to spend a lot of money only to have the thing stolen!  Aside from disc locks and alarms there's not much on offer for the prevention of theft in london..

might go for a more touring style bike because i think they'll be less attractive to thiefs?

Put the chain etc in a bag

and bungee it to the seat.  If you land on a decent lock n chain having come off, it will worsen your injuries exponentially.

Put your chain through another bikers chain, makes the theiving fraternity think twice.

what about

Posts at motorcycle bays with built in chains. Then either provide your own padlock or some sort of pound coin deposit for a key type thing. - anyway, havn't thought it through properly but reckon there could be a smart solution there somewhere. I reckon bikers would even be willing to pay for parking if it offered protection.

They aren't there for the reason, becuase this US fed moronic litigous state we live in would render this a claim waiting to happen.

'I was running to cross the road when I tripped over a sunken anchor point in a bike parking bay, 'are you taking the piss or what claim awarded me 10 gazillion dollars'

Have you been the victim of a vicious and unwarranted injury thanks to a glaringly obvious and protruding bright yellow anchor point in a bike bay you shouldn't even have been crossing on foot if you don't have a bike in there?, then call 'are you taking the piss or what claims' etc

Claims Culture

Thankfully, that still hasn't reached here!  If you fall over something (ie, a hole in the pavement) then obviously you weren't looking, so it's your own fault.

(Last year, a crowd of people were killed crossing a railway line, as the underground tunnel was too small to cope with the large numbers going to a concert.  The official answer - they weren't meant to be on the track.  End of.)

Me - I just park next to a lampost, and use my own covered wire rope, which does fit under the seat.

And learn to use the chain and lock properly. DO NOT leave it dangling on the ground.

plus one  for using a lock right dont just lock your front wheel to a pole as any good theft cant just take your wheel off. its best to lock the frame to your wheel to a pole as it be harder to steal.
