Any security on the XCT ??

I'm a recent owner of a beautiful 2012 XCT and noticed that there is no way to lock my bike . My previous bikes were both Hondas and they had a lock on the neck. Just trying to see if maybe I'm missing something here.

One of the few shortcomings in the Victory line. I bought an alarmed disc lock that I use when parked at a hotel overnight on trips. Just be sure to get a reminder coil to strap onto your handlebar- you don't want to take off when the lock is still on.

Just in case some knucklehead falls in love with my bike as I did . I want to make it a little more difficult for him to take off with it.

I'm thinking of even using some kind of a heavy duty lock and chain that you would use on a bicycle.

Just go purchase a disc lock... That way at least it can't just be rolled away and loaded into a truck via ramp.

I use a disc lock and also have a motion detect alarm with remote. It can even sound off if someone is too close to the bike. It will send a signal back to the remote.

bike is so heavy I dont think with a disc lock you would ever have a problem.
