I’m pretty paranoid when it comes to bike security. It becomes a bit of an effort to keep bikes safe but the more security, the better. I’ve recently moved and had to start my security plans all over again, so Brad at Ballard’s took me through their range of SXP security products.

The best way to secure your motorcycle is to chain it to an immovable object — nothing that can be removed or cut. SXP does these great ground anchors that are perfect for the job: simply drill into the concrete and DynaBolt these babies into the ground. This creates something for you to run your chain through and that can’t be shifted.

Combine this with the SXP chain and lock and you have the Ballard’s “Beat the Bastards Kit”, retailing at $139.95, for the ultimate anti-theft kit. — Matt Bernard
