Stunning Bike...

As for security you should look upto 10% of the cost of the bike spent on seurity.

Lots of chains even Thatcham approved don't last two minutes literally with the Big Erwin Bolt Croppers.



The choice is yours But For Home Security I would Look at the Almax 19 and Pragmasis 19mm Big Chain and Locks.

For a carry chain i would still look at the Pragmasis 13mm.


Don't leave the chain on the floor the more resistant to cutting and sawing tends to make them more susceptible to sledge hammer assault but for that they need a solid surface to trap the lock and or chain against.

Really do look into security more you don't want to be left paying for a bike you no longer have.

Thanks for taking the time to post all that. I'm thinking of just returning the mammoth now and going for one of the above - the pragmasis do the anti pinch pin which would be ideal for the rear axle on the Pani.

I didn't mention that the bike also has a road Angel bike trac fitted and I'll be taking out the subscription for it too. At least I might get it recovered if it does actually get carted off. I'm lucky in that you can't see the front of my garage from the road and even when cleaning, only my two neighbours can see it. I'll be looking out for being followed home though, it's a very quiet new road so no one should really be behind me on the way in.

For security at home just keep it in the house, hallway maybe, it's a work of art anyway and much better than pots and wax candles and everyone can stare at it while eating their tea and appreciate the curves of the Italian thoroughbred

Yes in the house works but i would still lock it up even in house especially as properties get broken in for vehicle keys.

Keep your keys under your pillow...

But do enjoy your bike.

Certainly get almax or pragmasis and if i had a bike suitable for the pragmasis pin i would have one.

Just getting it into the garage past her indoors was a mission! I don't even want to think what she'd say to it being in the house!
