Grip Lock - Ever use one?

I just happened across a TV blurb about this...

as a rule, our Goldwings are not bothered very much, but sometimes, I have to park in a place where " I am a bit apprehensive" about the bike.

So far, all I have done is to lock the handlebars.... tough to ride with it all the way left.....
and on the 1800s, I put it in Reverse and take the keys with me.... tough to move if it won't roll.

but still,, a different option is available.... is this just a solution looking for a buyer?

Any thoughts on this?

For some it would be an option but really not hard to defeat. If the guy in the video would have sawed the end off the lever and slid the lock off the end it would have been gone in 60 seconds.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Well, if they are really determined to get the bike, they will get it... Just bring a tow truck and lift it up and go... Still, anything you can do to deter them or slow them down has merit... Not a bad device I suppose, but not a type of device that will completely prevent the theft either... I would like to see more of the internal construction before I bought one...

I've seen these all over on line. Amazon has then that look more stout than that one. Not sure it really matters but if it makes you feel better it's probably worth it. Let us know of you buy one and your opinion as I'm thinking about it also.

Like Dave said, cut the lever off, or if you don't have a saw handy, can't you simply unscrew and remove the lever?

Like most security devices, it's there to keep the honest in check. Real thieves won't be discouraged by something like that.

I just brought it up for conjecture, I won't be messing with one of them.

IMO, all of you have described why it won't do a darn bit of good.

our best insurance is that Goldwings are not popular with the "grab it and run" crowd, too damn heavy to take just on a whim. They can't just pick it up and throw it in the back of their 1939 pickup truck.

When I stay in what i think might be a shady area I have a small chain and good master lock I run around the rear wheel then I lock the handlebars.

you and me both.... I have the heaviest model of that Master Cable lock.

forgot to mention that earlier... it lays in the bottom of the trunk, out of sight, out of mind....

it gets used on my trailer when I go to rallies...

It's hard to get a wing off the center stand if the bar is locked full left.

LOL . THe guy with the hacksaw reminds me of OJ Simpson trying to "fit" the glove. He didn't want to fit so it didn't. This guy is not willing to cut the lock either.
These days there are cordless small grinders. The lock and the chain, Screw mentions, will take no more than 40 - 50 sec to cut. I just leave the electric reverse engaged.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently
