Security to reduce insurance

Hello everyone, 

This is my first post so wanted to stay off by saying hi. 

Apologies if this is in the wrong section but I wanted to ask a question about bike security and insurance. 

I am a new rider and I've just bought myself a Triumph Speed Triple 1050 08-plate and have started looking round for insurance. 

What would you recommend is the best security device(s) that I can get/have installed that would bring down the insurance. The bike will be stored in a secure garage attached to the house, but I also wanted an alarm/immobiliser. 

From what I have seen on the Internet datatool seems to be the biggest name. 

I was just going for advice from people in the know. 

Thanks in advance.

Insurance companies don`t bother so much now about alarms,i`ve had them all (cat1s)and all a pain in the neck.

You should have an immobiliser as standard,in any case the bike can be lifted into a sound proof van.I suggest a garage alarm and an ALMAX series 4 chain (19mm thick links) with a squire padlock with it and ground anchor.

Thanks I'll give that a look. In the mean time I've bought myself a Oxford Boss Alarm Disc Lock-16mm as I wanted something light to be able to carry around with me. The Almax looks like just the thing I need for home.

same here

with the cat 1 alarms ok when new but a pain in the arse when they get a bit older, best thing i have found bar anything on the security market is a baby monitor, absolutely stonking tool, so good ive actually managed to shoot one thieving scum bag with an air rifle, pity it was only a leg shot twas highly amusing hearing the thwack ,followed by a scream of arrrgh then feet running like fook to get away, available at every mother care outlet and even the most expensive ones are literally a third of the price of a proper bike alarm.

Loads of the furry little fookers around my area. They keep spraying my bike cover with their scent as if to say 'This is mine,' and ripping it when they do that stretchy clawing thing. It puts me off touching the bike sometimes, nevermind potential bike thieves. I wonder if cat piss is Thatcham approved.....???

That probably doesn't help at all does it Mike?:unsure:

P.S. BR, can you get me one of those Mothercare air rifles, it might solve my cat problem.:wink:
