All it takes is a New York minute for your unsecured motorcycle to disappear, but snake this bad boy through your motorcycle frame and/or wheel and like the name says, [mageProductLink sku="313-2033" title=""]Fahgettaboudit[/mageProductLink]. Sure you might not want to haul this beast around in your backpack or saddlebags but loop this dookie rope chain around a fixed object in your carport or the side of your house and you'll have peace of mind knowing that it'll take a thief with Samson-like strength to bust it apart. For those characters that try to use "brain instead of brawn" the unique hexagonal design of heat-treated boron manganese steel chain makes it difficult for bolt cutters to get a bite on. You could also just leave the chain behind and use the massive U-lock on your rotor at your various stops. The U-style lock features anti-pick and drill resistant disc style cylinders.
