Question yet again

The, by now, semi noob
How can I protect my bike from being stolen without carrying tons of
chains and other stuff around?
-07 990 going to Cali and all Over Mexico soon.

In Mexico, ask to park it in the hotel lobby.

Yes, the real answer is keep it nearby and inside. You will be amazed where you get to park. I have driven up a flight of stairs and across the lobby to put the bike in a courtyard or corner.

Chains really dont do anything except allow you to lock your helmet or coat through the visor or sleeve (though this is important as well.) I have made very good use of my Scorpio Alarm which signals the remote up to a half mile away. Do the presence option and I suggest the kill option. It is a great light weight way to guard the bike and your bags.
