I’m on the wrong phone so I can’t post a pic (there’s some on the shiny things thread on carrying bikes), we have a chain with a soft nylon cover and a good lock to lock the bike on, had a python lock but they are so bloody easy to defeat, with the chain you’ll need a grinder-still easy but noisy. Also got a hitch pin lock as what’s easier than stealing the whole bloody lot? Used to travel with a cover but like stated they do cause damage. We put a pull-out awning on the back so when we’re parked for any length of time the bike is in shade, also handy for maintenance. BTW don’t just lock a wheel to the carrier, dead easy to leave the wheel behind, the chain we have is long enough to go thru both wheels, the frame, and the carrier. I’ve also put a crash cam on the back that records on a loop, and I’m looking into gps trackers with Bluetooth geofencing. We’re about to do an extended trip with two emtb’s, a hobie kayak and an Aprilia Capo Rally on a trailer plus all the gear, real easy to nick the trailer and there goes close on $40k worth of stuff. Insurance company wanted close to 2 grand to cover it but only for damage not theft. Of course the Ape is covered separately but that still leaves $10k worth of pushies and a $3k kayak. The crash cam was $300, the tracker is around the same plus a sim and data costs which are dependant on how many times it reports. Mainly looking at it for the geofence capability, Bluetooth straight to the phone which is also handy if you’re parked and shopping or eating etc.
