Security

Post by SharkFinn » Fri Nov 21, 2014 5:19 pm

Hi there ...yes I hope its the right forum 8-)

Bike security - anti-theft? helmet and maybe jacket locks etc
What is a must have and what is not needed?
I intend having the tank, rear and side bags for super long distances otherwise just one for an overnight...

Any advice from you all is appreciated. My purchase of the Nuda will be my first bike in 18 years....

Many thanks as always.

quality disc lock ,its small and a real pain to get off for thieves,Im not interested in unreliable alarms

bicycle lock, i use this to lock my helmet to the fork leg so i don't have to carry ut around

puncture kit

small rucksack with items above in as well as spare keys and wet trousers,bigger rucksack for multiple day trips

Cheers Ironzie...whats a disk lock? if you dont mind me asking
Taken note of the rest - makes sense..Tyre repair kit? this isnt a bicycle that you can whip the tyre off and on again...this is a real task right?

a disc lock is a small locking device that locks onto the front disc thus stopping the bike being moved, if you do buy one get one with a flexi cord that goes onto the handlebar, this is a reminder only as you would not believe how many people forget its there and try to ride off. most tyre repair kits are just a get you home option involving plugs glue and co2 canisters to re-inflate the tyre, most are very good :)

Ha ha I had an inkling someone would ask me...my last bike was an XL500R and the one before that was a CB750F... Good times! Before that I was mostly off road (enduro's Moto-X etc)...Looooong time ago (back when Finns were winning on Husky's)
