Hi BMW /bike lovers

What do you use to track your bike if it's stolen or do to your bike to prevent your bike from being stolen eg on a car removing the distributer cap if I'm not mistaken.. Yes I've got a bike lock if I remember to take it with.. It's a blimmin long one so sometimes I don't take it.. 


Thanks in advance

A DISK lock is fairly small/compact, so that would not be much hassle to permanently LEAVE on the bike (not in the disk, obviously...!)

2 types of disk lock available:

1. a BASIC type, the disk lock has a PIN that passes through a hole in your disk, and you remember to REMOVE the lock before driving off...! (they do come with a REMINDER aid...)

2. A disk lock, as above, that also has a VERY loud in-built alarm (batteries last approx 2 years, and cannot be removed whilst disk lock is locked in place). It gives a LOUD beep if anyone touches the bike, and a SECOND beep if anyone touches the bike again, and the 3rd time it basically hurts eardrums....very very loud, great for peace-of-mind, etc.
