Default Bike Secuirty Issues?

I had my beloved motorbike stolen 2 years ago, and have just bought a new one, This bike is parked in a court yard behind a door chained to railings,

Where's the weak points? motion sensors? the doors pretty fooked maybe a new door?, more alarms? cctv? chains are pretty damn easy to get though so...

Had my last bike for 4 days, Want this one for a good few years, any ideas?

A couple heavy duty bicycle U-Locks and a floor lock if you can install one is a good option.

Floor Anchor Systems

But a Xena disc lock and a Grip Lock and you're in pretty good shape.

Thanks for the replys guys,

I've currently bought a xena ground anchor, Got 2 chains connecting it to the railings, 3 after i get a free one from the police, also bought a zena motion alarm system which will be looking over it from tomorrow onwards...

Going to buy a reinforced steel door this week as the old one... anyone could kick though damn wood... (which would mean they'd make lots of noise kicking it though (alerting me)

Will also buy a zena disc lock this week as mentioned,

The bikes got all the yamaha security features, alarm goes off when ignition is fiddled with... exc, (datatagged) guess it all helps...

I've also got a powerful computer and would like to add some cctv motoring to one of its screens, any recommendations on cctv products?

And still i feel like sleeping beside outside next to my bike tonight...

Nothings thief proof but, hell if they want my bike there going to work for it,

This is a start, any product recommendations is most welcome?

If they want it, they're gonna get it.

Like being in a firefight; try to look unimportant.

And, after reading all the stuff you are doing to protect the bike, I'd guess full insurance might be cheaper.

If you're really worried, get LoJack.

You do know that you can GPS your bike- right? Even if the police won't help directly you can be proactive in tracking your bike. The real advancement would be if the GPS had an ignition kill like GM vehicles come with.
