If you are going to use a disk lock - only ever park where you have to reverse to get out - front wheel to the curb or against the wall.
Everyone ****s up occasionally and a 'crunch' when toeing it backwards is a lot better than 'crunch' when gassing it.

Anyone who is looking for a disk lock, highly recommend these

I didn't have the alarm fitted though - which would double as a stupid siren!

Potentially making a target of myself, but is a disk lock really thought to be necessary? I thought sport bikes were the target of choice for theft.

My other bikes have been outside for ages, no locks, no worries, but they were older and not that attractive

I live in a really safe suburb, but that didn't stop some bored scab setting my car on fire literally across the street in April last year.

I live near a few hotels, don't need pissed idiots playing games

Triumph might not be a major target, but why risk it (the lock came with the bike, and is worth more in insurance policy reduction than its cost)

Any idea about the cost of replcement? I bet Triumph see me coming ($$$$$)
Heres something that I have been mucking around with.
Some obscure brand, made for RM250's. (need to modify it a bit more to sit right) bout $60NZ

You two smart-asses might think about duct taping your nuts up pretty high if some of these BT and ST owners bring their dogs to a Scrambler rally.

Why? Are Bonneville T-100 and Sprint ST owners notorious nut grabbers?

+1 on Venture Brothers.

I think a rat terrier would be cool too. They are actually smart and dont bark all the ***king time. The only small dog I respect.

I just cant imagine my great dane sitting on the tank...

Slightly back on topic...
I almost went to the local dealer today to find a suitable windscreen for the Scrambler. Other than the Triumph flyscreen, what are you using for a windscreen, and are you happy with your choice?

Thanks,
