How do you friends secure your bikes while on the road? Cables, disc locks, alarms? What works for you?

Thanks

I pretty much put my alarm disk lock on either wheel and also a non alarm lock and hope for the best.

If traveling in a group and needing to leave the bikes on a hotel parking lot for example we take a security cable and pass through rear rims plus what ever disk locks we have. Not sure if it helps but thiefs are lazy sometimes and would rather pick an easier target.

where you park it, especially for the night, is #1. If the crooks can park a van next to it, it'll be gone no matter how many locks and alarms there are (does anybody even care these days if an alarm goes off?) And for just an occasional junkhead, who would like to just ride away with your bike, a sturdy disc lock is sufficient.

A bike cover also works surprisingly well, if there is no alternative but park it on the street, although I always try to avoid this.
