crap!

S^%T!!
… having your ride stolen sucks!
… in another country to boot.

Don't give up. While I wouldn't wish this on anyone, this will all be part of your adventure. It sounds crazy now but you may later look back and view the whole experience as a positive.

Sent some dough to your paypal account. If you get your bike back pay it forward to to a good cause.

That being said, I am working on setting up a "donation button" on my blog.
In the mean time, My paypal is linked to Noah.horak@gmail.com

Thank you all for the moral support. You are all friends in my book.
Paypal sent. We give money to the Food Bank every year. I have no problem helping those that help themselves. Sometimes shit comes up, and we need to lean on each other a little bit. Thats what help was supposed to be once upon a time.

If you get your bike back, hopefully there will be some $$ to help fix it back up

So the obvious question: Who makes the most gnarly chain/lock set for a moto? I want something that needs a torch to get through... for whatever i may be riding next.

Good luck with the recovery Noah, really hoping between you, the police and the local bike scene someone can come up with it in good shape.

They want it bad enough they'll take it.
Better to be aware of your surroundings and only leave in a secure spot when in cities.

Obviously. I will be getting safer places to park and doing better research. That being said... I also want to have the biggest fecking chain out there.

Sorry...didn't mean to sound smug.

I think you just had a bad experience/bad luck.
Perhaps followed or tipped off by someone after picking up your Moto.
For the most part this doesn't always happen.

With that said,back to your question.
We always carry a big ass chain with plastic tubing over it,it looks good but in reality it could probably be snapped quite easily.
It also helps that I usually have another bike with me,so we chain them together.

Again,really sorry about your bike.
I guess we are all so vulnerable out there.

I've got on of these. 30mm, 3 feet long. http://www.revzilla.com/product/ongu...FYWo4Aoda1cA3A
It's a serious piece of gear but of course needs to be secured to something immovable. And keep the lock mechanism well lubricated to keep it safe from the old superglue trick.

I did a little diggin for you.

First, I have a lock just like Barman. Leftover from my pedal bike in college.... I think it is a good lightweight, easily carryable lock. Used between a pole and your frame I think it could work well and I haven't ever seen a set of bolt cutters that could break it. You would need a power tool IMO.

Someone uses this (it is a cheaper option):

I also found this...Maybe good advice. Katy does stand out a little....

With the cover on, people would walk right by the bike and never even notice it. I think its actually better security than locks or a chain.

Hats off to the guys in Dublin. Sounds like they are using a helicopter and a contingent of fine folks to search for the 690 in a rough part of town. Pretty amazing show of support.
