New security device released

I have just ordered myself a RoadLok.
These things are better than a disc lock because they don't let you forget that they are on there! The bike wont move anywhere near as far as a disc lock and is fixed to the bike so you don't have to carry that bulky lock about!
They aren't cheap but are well worth the money IMO.
They are available to the US as well so worth having a look.

Looks really good..and seems to be very effective...and definitely a step forward from a 'disc lock'.
I'm notorious for forgetting about having locks etc on bikes, and would most certainly need a 'reminder'.
I could see a potential 'drop' though, if you fitted it on a bike with a 'centre stand' and forgot about it while 'rocking' your bike off the stand??..Maybe the bike wouldn't move that far to allow a problem though??. Would be OK with a side (kick) stand though.
But all in all a great Idea....I like it.

I just looked into this further and it only works on radial brake calipers. It therefore cant be used on pre-2004 F4s....

This was demonstrated to me earlier in the year (at the BMF show)
It's a very well made piece of kit, think my order is going in soon.

When I rang they said it would fit the Senna!?!
Guess my order has just been cancelled, they don't do one for XJ6 either.
