The center stand I would think would be a hard thing to lock.
If you felt really unsafe , a large chain wrapped around side stand and through the front wheel would work.
I Like the disk lock. 1 thing on the disk lock is sometimes you forget to remove it, a simple suggestion made to me by a buddy was to get a key blank and cable it to the key lock and leave the key in the ignition , this way before you are ablke to put your key in the blank will have to be removed , thus reminding you of the disk lock.

My Dad had a 50 something Harley. Sitting in the garage he would have a logging chain going through the wheels on it locked to the Garage. Next to it sat his GL1800 without so much as a padlock on it. I asked him about this as in my mind the old thing was worth about 1/5th the price of his wing. His answer was replacement availabilty and what the insurance would cover. It did not make sense to me as I did not have any sentimental attachment to the Harley like he did but now I have come to understand as I build each old wing I know if something happened that I would never recoup my investment.
