Default The Perfect Motorcycle Lock

Hey Everyone I'm an Industrial Design Student at Carnegie Mellon University and for my current project I'm designing a motorcycle locking system. I have a motorcycle license and have ridden before, but I've never owned a bike and therefore never had a lock. So I've come to you guys to ask if you can help me out by filling out a quick survey for me and also telling me any interesting stories you might have, or suggestions, praises, or complaints you might have about motorcycle locks. Thanks.

Survey:

Master Lock has spent years doing this research for you. You may find their examples at your local hardware store.

Invent a lock that keeps four guys from loading your bike in a truck and that doesn't weigh a ton. Then you'll have something.

Its.......A FACT!

That preferrably metes-out Justice without having to bother the cops, and won't run-down your battery!

The best bike lock is a rabid pit bull tied to the bike with a have gnawed-through rope. That or a small child with a shotgun.
