garage security updgrade

New security products from Pragmasis.
2 metre chain, 2 Anti pinch pins, 2 Squire padlocks and 2 round locks and a Torc ground anchor. The chain is 16mm and sold secure rated, cannot be bolt cropped. Lets hope I never find out how good the kit is but it looks very good.
Its a good way to link 2 bikes together and onto 1 ground anchor between the bikes which makes it harder for someone to try defeat the chain and locks.

The weak point will always be the lock used

@Paul.K The black endcap covered in plastic, next to the lock, is stepped out to prevent sliding through the lock... is that correct?

@ Edward The black end cap is just a plastic heat shrunk cap to prevent any damage when threading the anti pinch pin through. The Anti pinch pin has a recess to accept the lock which is a very snug fit.

So, a VERY skilled lockpicker, obviously with years of trial and error, and specialized knowledge of lock systems, can pick this massive padlock in --- 3:34 minutes .. Yep -- obviously the weak link :-D

How long does it take to cut the bars/chains with an angle grinder then --- Oh.. but that makes noise...

In reality what you can do is delay the thieves, make it harder for them .. thats all ..

Thumbs down ?

The real problem is no one is serious about the theft problem.......
Until every registering authority records the VIN AND ENGINE NUMBERS and shares the info, this will continue
Stolen bikes are made into track bikes
Used car dealers have an app they can scan the VIN AND ENGINE NUMBERS ......instant vehicle history
Kills the value of stolen frames and engines doesn't it
All track day promoters should be required to use the app
Then there is the stolen body parts problem......tough one to solve
California has the highest recovery rate for stolen bikes at 42% are returned to the owner
Go to a motorcycle swap meet in SoCal .....you'll see Sheriffs walking around with scanners.....
I thank them every time......I hate thieves

I don't do anything but close the garage door and padlock it, there are far more valuable
things in my garage than the bikes.....and the bikes are insured

"The real problem is" -- In most countries theft of motorcycles and motorcycle parts is treated exactly the same as car thefts... The main difference is how easy it is to steal a bike compared to a car .. Even if a bike has both its wheels locked with disk-locks or other locks, if the bike is not actually chained to an immovable object, the scumbags will just put both ends of the bike on a couple of skateboards .. then lift it into a van .. Several bikes can be stacked into a stolen builders van. Its then off to a garage somewhere and break the bike down for parts or swap parts around to make a "Track-day Special", remove parts of the VIN number and spin a story of "Written off in accident, but otherwise ok" -- Or sell to someone who just does not care.

Just "letting the insurance companies take the loss" and not securing your bikes is part of what raises insurance costs to insane levels .. Works out fine for us "old blokes" with low premiums because of age and living in nicer neighborhoods, but for the beginners its a real problem.

So: Secure your bikes, even in the locked garages, in my country no insurance company will pay out on theft for a bike that was not secured by additional means, even if stolen from a locked garage.

hidden RFID tagging in bodywork and "tradeable" parts goes a long way to fighting the scumbag thieves -- but only if its actually enforced by the police -- in my country the police really don't care, they use a lot more time on checking loud exhausts, aftermarket indicators and sending customized bikes in for "new MOT's" :-( -- and setting up speed traps at every bike-meet they can find.
