I just recently bought an 03 wr450f, supermoto street legal. I want to be able to ride it to work, but that means i have to leave it in the parking lot all day. Since it just has the ignition on/off switch, it would take 5 seconds for someone to jump on and take off with my bike.

What do you guys suggest as safety against this? Im gonna buy a disc lock as soon as possible but i was thinking if maybe there was some possible way to run a key ignition?? Thanks

I use a hidden toggle switch and put a railroad padlock through the rear sprocket and around the chain. It's not a bad idea to use a cable and padlock and secure the bike to a pole or fence post.

I added a key, got a grizzly keyswitch off of ebay. I also use a NY chain and leave it on the pole.
