Anyone carry a security chain?

Just curious what you all carry security wise?

I donít plan to leave my bike anywhere for any long period of time but will definitely be using an alarmed disc lock. Iím not sure how possible it is to actually carry a chain but if leaving my bike somewhere outside Iíd certainly prefer to chain it up.

Thoughts?

Carrying anything on the Bobber is tough, and as Triumphís own swing arm bag is only designed for 1kg that doesnít help much either. One option (as some members have done) is to fit a rack to the rear mudguard, which looks good although I donít know how you feel about carrying extra weight on your swing arm! Another is Bike Brothers bag, which is mounted to the frame and by the looks of it should be strong enough to carry a chain or a U-lock.

The triumph has a chipped key engine immobilizer that runs thru the bikes ECM the only was to thwart that is to replace the ECM and have another key coded, with the fork locks i think your as safe as your going to get, just remember if a thief wants the bike he will get it

Depending on how much you like your kidneys (in the event of a spill) just loop the chain over a shoulder bandoleer style.

I appreciate they wonít start it, but the fork locks are typically very easily overcome...donít know if the Bobbers is any better?

The most common means of stealing a bike is to simply lift it into the back of a van. If itís at leat chained to something then it means an angle grinder is needed to cut through the chain. Of course if they are really determined then they will still take the bike but the hope is... they steal the bike next to mine with just the fork lock on

Iíve ordered the Almax with an accompanying Squire lock which is also impossible the bolt cut by hand. From the research I did they are the top two options out there... although Alex at Almax did a good job of convincing me that his chain is just that little bit better lol
