Beware Disc Lock

Recommended Posts

Well after the recent good ying with the insurance claim, comes the bad yang (or whatever) with this little bugger.


Situation is, a nice biker parks ACCROSS the fornt of three bikes so we all have to reverse out to manover around him. I forget I have the disc lock on as I`ve not been using it for some weeks due to parking outside the office.

I have to reverse and crunch. This happens.



So far all quotes are coming in at £145 to replace the mudgaurd.

Ah this is why I dont use any security devices... that and im far too lazy :D


If there was one I'd have to use, it be that brake lock, goes across ya front brake and around your grip. Probably more effective than a disk lock and you pretty much cannot forget it :lol:

I like how you left unmentioned the bit where you pushed the offending bike over for revenge.

Probably best left that way too.

My disc lock had a bright yellow lead on it that I hook over my accelerator so to remind you it's on.

 

Snap mate but I just sat on the bike and moved it to avoid the bike in front. Totally forgot the disc lock.

I wouldn`t do that to a fellow biker BigShot, but I was damn near thinking it

I know.

As I said though, probably best not admitting to such things anyway. :P

Ooops! I have one one mine and also a bright yellow 'forget-me-not' thing which I loop round my handlebar and lock. Only I totally forgot about it the other day (even with the darn loop thing) and tried to wheel it out of its stable - yes it has its own stable :lol: . It kept stopping and i thought, have I left it in gear?? till the penny dropped :oops: :oops:


Thankfully no damage done, unlike yours :(

I have only avoided doing this through the use of an alarmed disc lock, you twitch and it goes off like a nutter. Its annoying to disarm and if it goes off while you are trying to undo it then it kills your ear but its prevented this so far... And I value my bike far beyond my ears :lol:


Sorry to hear its happened all the same, must be a right pain in the back side. Amazing it does so much damage with seemingly little force. :shock:

Yep, bloody nuisance, going to have to weait while next months pay day to fix it. I`ve got one of the straps over the grips but I just totally forgot and my hand must have hidden the strap.
