What security chain should I buy to carry when commuting ? I was thinking about the 16mm or 13mm pragmasis but I think that the 16mm is too big to carry. Any ideas?

I forget what the saying is, but it's something like locks only keep out good people, bad people are going to break in if they're determined. I probably messed that up.

Anyway, there was a post on reddit from an ex bike thief explaining how easy it is to steal bikes regardless of what locks you put on. The final consensus was that a disc lock with an alarm was the best option and to put it on the rear wheel. That and a gps system like lojack, although he said something like it has to be wired in a way that it's not obvious and accessible.

So a disc lock with an alarm is the best option in my opinion. Then if you want to chain it to something, it wouldn't hurt. I have a Xena that I used on my CBR when I parked it outside my apartment and a hefty kryptonite chain around a light pole or just through the swing arm and other hard parts of the bike.

It was a lot longer ago than I thought.

thick cable that has clear coat plastic covering with loops on both ends to wrap around pole and other end locked to grom.

any lock can be defeated
In this day and age only the lowest of low lives steal bikes. If I ever stoop to this level push me off of a bridge. I love how the "good people" of the city did nothing to stop him.

Chains on motorcycles deter some thieves, but only delay others. If somebody wants to steal your bike enough they're going to make it happen.

Thank you for the replies, I was wondering if getting a quality kryptonite or abus D lock would possibly be best for portability and security. I already have 1 abus and 1 oxford disc lock front and rear. So then I would use all 3 locks.
That sounds like a good plan using all three. You basically want a potential thief to look at your bike and think it's not worth the time.
