Default Security

Ok, love my Judge so far, but I am concerned over the lack of security on the bike. Every bike I have ever own had a steering lock except the Judge. No steering lock to discourage someone from just pushing the bike away. So I am curious, what do other owners do to protect their ride? Are all the Victory models this way & if so what is done to discourage a theft? We all know that if someone really wants to steal something they will & all we can do is keep honest people honest.

I got an Australian delivered 2013 Judge and it has a steering lock as standard.

There is no Victory model with a steering lock.

I lock my steering using the loops Victory put on the head and lower triple tree for just such a purpose.

Throw a disk lock on if you're really worried about it.

2012 current enough?

On the left side of the bike just in front of the tank, is there a tab with a hole in it? It is easy to miss if your not looking for it.
