Scorpio rLink/Chain?

I recently had my new to me VFR stolen from my work parking garage, which has me looking at ways to deter thieves from considering it agian (it did get recovered 6 hours later). I've basically decided to either chain it to the 1" cable railing I park next to with something like a Kryptonite chain, or install a GPS trackable alarm system like the Scorpio rLink.

For those of you that deal with this sort of stuff, ie living/working in a high crime area, what do you guys recommend? I do have comprehensive coverage on it of course, but I'm still out $500 every time someone tries something and damages it, so I'd like to avoid that if possible. Thanks!

I've looked at disc locks, but it wouldn't really stop someone from just picking it up and loading it in a truck or van, like they did with mine.

I've just about settled on the chain. It would slow them down, hopefully enough that they just move on. The rLink is expensive and cool, but unless I'm close by I don't think I could do anything but tell the cops where it is, which still leaves me out my deductible again. But I would still know right away and can at least do something in a timely manner.

Maybe I should just get both...
