Default looking for some lock and chain advice

Hey lads I know that no lock is unbreakable but which would be the best out of these,
I will be parking a lot in the city for college on the campus but I was advised to lock up well, currently I just use a hardened steel standard security lock on front rotor disk so I will need some another bit of security.

One of the lads on here and going to the same college uses a throttle lock as well as a chain

http://www.ebay.ie/itm/Datatool-Moto...cAAOSwFnJZezJz

and these 2 chains this one is 58cuid
http://www.motorcycleshop.ie/mammoth...009-4304-p.asp



this one is 35 and more affordable for me
http://www.motorcycleshop.ie/oxford-...f163-524-p.asp


other disk locks
http://www.ebay.ie/itm/JDC-MOTORCYCL...kAAOSw5dNWpliu
25cuid

appreciate your advice

That chain is only 10mm.a decent bolt cutter would cut it in seconds.
Go almax for a chain if you can they are 19mm

22mm cable vs 22mm-section chain - very different animals. Not comparable.

1. Lock your bike to something immovable. Always. With a decent chain & padlock (decent chain = minimum 16mm from Pragmasis or Almax). Carrying and using this is less hassle than having your bike stolen. Keep the chain up off the ground.

2. The better your chain & padlock (and the more devices/measures you use), the more hassle for the knackers. Think of the two guys running from the lion...

3. Use multiple devices - chain & padlock and a U-lock and a disc-lock and a cover.

4. The knackers aren't stupid - they're members on forums like this...

If you're going to scrimp on security, prepare for heartache.

yes but I do not have the money to spend on it, simple as bro I just dont have it, if I did I would get the biggest and best chain

I have ordered an alarm disk lock a decent one, even though Irish weather always fucks the electronics in them afrer a while,

I have ordered a decent lock and chain the oxford 22mm arma, and I read good reviews on it


The Oxford Arma lock is one of the securest locks in the Oxford range
High tensile steel coated to prevent attacks from saws,drills,bolt cutters etc!
Steel Armour coated protection to prevent scratches and marks on your frame
Rotational locking head (Includes set of 4 keys) / Dimensions 900mm x 22mm
Includes a quick release carry bracket for easy transport / See feedabck "Spoke with a local cycle dealer, who likes to test all new locks! Using an angle grinder it took him 45mins to get through the chain! "

and I ordered a Datatool Motorcycle Scooter Security Handlebar Throttle Grip Croc

thats the best I can do
