Looks like a very good idea , BUT they don't make one for my bike, and, rather more importantly:-

In the videos it looks very much as though the locking pin is held in the bracket by a grubscrew arrangement that fits into a keyway in the locking pin. It is inserted and tightened during the installation by what looks to be a hex or star key. How long will it take the scrote community to acquire the right key and remove it in seconds? I hope I am wrong, but that is what it looks like.

Pity, because having a robust lock built on to the bike would be a very good idea.

From reading a couple of reviews, a guy fitted it wrongly and it was next to impossible to remove. Don't forget we're not thinking here of a dedicated attack from an expert... but more the context of some scrote stealing your bike.

For the courier etc bike it's probably ideal because it's quick to use. They're not going to carry an Almax and find something to secure it against.

It might be easy to unlock (with the right tool), it won't stop being lifted into a van. But it will stop opportunistic 'push away' thefts.

When I had a VFR800, its pillion footrest hanger was perfect for carrying a disc lock. No having to open a pannier etc, so more likely to be used for short stops.

The best lock, in many ways, is the one used, not the one stored.

Even Dr Ken German (bike theft expert, MAG, ex-Met police) used to say to use a cheap cable lock ("stripey string" was his description) rather than nothing.
