Litelok Gold Moto 108

As seen here.


Thoughts? Price point seems similar to what I paid for an Almax several years ago (and stupidly gave the bugger away), usp seems to be weight and space saving. Looks like it could be worn as a belt too if you happen to be whatever 2 pi r the length is or wtf.

Interesting (Rae's favourite lock picker):

Don't you just love the soft tones, just slightly sarcastic. But very good.

Also beware of two possible issues:
- 'It could do with being a little longer to lock the bike to something.' says the 1 review on Sportsbikeshop
- 'Liteloks close shut without a key. A key is only needed to open a Litelok.' That would personally catch me out within a year. I'm always forgetting to take locks keys with me.

Aha! Good work chaps.

Very interesting. I hadn't gone to search for reviews but the fella tells it well, that Sold Secure et al couldn't do it. You'd hope the official people were using the right tools but you never know. Either way you'd expect/hope the prepared scum would at least splurge on the right tools and so it's a no go.

Will stick to carrying my inflatable doberman in the top box and chaining that to it.

Edit: I wonder if this is a newer version? The sheath seems a different material/weave, and the variebt/code if the video is saying 787 or whatnot.

I wouldn't write it off Matt, it's a very good visual deterrent and the LPL does have a high grade cable cutter. Used alongside a disc lock it offers good protection.

I bought one as I thought it'd be easier to lug about than a lock and chain (essential in Northern French Hotel carparks). Yes, it is lighter, but it'll only 'roll' down to a not very compact 300mm or so unless you're built like Arnie (but then you risk getting twatted in the face when you try to release it). I wouldn't reccomend one with seeing one in the flesh first.
Hello, by the way - I still lurk about and I'm still more than happy the the R1250RS change. Just to complete my slide into late mid life, the RC8R has also gone in favour of a R Nine T, which is currently in a thousand bits being modified. And no, its not going to end up a bloomin' cafe racer or street scrambler or any other tired, unimaginative 'style'.
