When I'm at home the bike is in the garage, on alarm and start-circuit breaker. Besides that there is a disc lock on the front brake and a heavy chain on the rear wheel. This seems a lot, but in the Netherlands a lot of bikes are stolen and broken up for parts.
When I'm working the bike is parked in front of the office, with the alarm on and the disc lock on the front wheel.
We have no weapons available in Holland, so there is no other protection in that direction. I have been thinking about booby traps, but as they form a certain risk for me (yes, I'm 53 and sometimes forget things), and booby traps are illegal over here I dropped the idea.
Of course there is insurance, but I just do not want some lazy f**k to steal what I've been working for.
If you can laugh at your own stupidities, you have fun all year round!
