Abus Granit City X-Plus 1060 Chain Lock
Bike's still here...
I guess the bad part about a product like this is you don't know if it works until it doesn't.
As far as quality goes...well I haven't attempted to cut the thing, but you can definitely tell its built well. No issues whatsoever with any part of it.
I got the longer version (60" i think) based on other reviews, and I'm glad i did, i use every bit of it.
It certainly is pricy, but i figure its cheaper than forking out the difference to farkle a replacement bike, so in that sense, its an inexpensive deterrent. Based on the looks of the chain and its heft, i think it's highly likely that a thief would attempt to work over another unprotected ride before making an effort on the abus.

Piece of mind in a small package
I own two abus locks. This particular model was my first one and I must say it is a short so you have to be pretty close to your locking pole or whatever you lock it to. I own 07 gsxr 600 and it fits into my solo seat cargo area. I also purchased their top end lock and its much heavier chain. For like mall trips and movies and other city stuff this is the best one up there for like locking your bike at night at apartment complex I would recommend Abus Granite Extreme its more tougher chain and much heavier.
City Plus features great security as as their top Extreme lock its just thinner chain and smaller lock portion other than that you still use top end high security lock. At the end of the day what do you want to sit on your bike and ride or dial 911 for stolen bike. We as riders put money, effort and soles into these metal machines why not keep them safe and secured. I personally try to protect my bike from anyone trying to get it free. Ride safe and keep two wheels on the road.

Its really good I feel more saver with it on my bike, but it short
Its a great chain. Its make it really hard to steel your bike. Added with a good disc lock is the perfect combination, but the chain is short( but I guess that ok because you shoulding leave the chain laying on the ground

Strong and Heavy lock
Great lock. But I wish I purchased the longer one for just a few more dollars. The extra length would had went a long way (no pun intended).

This chain is great. It has all the security you need. They are pricy but safety has a price.

Awesome, wish it was longer.
This chain lock works great and is from all the reviews I've seen (people trying to break it) it's extremely durable.
Thankfully nobody has tried to break it yet.
Though the only down side is it's so short but consider that I am wrapping it around a 8x8 support beam in my parking spot.
It's not a big issue, I just had to pull my bike right up to the beam for it to work, but the mechanism is nice.
The LED on key won't be much help except maybe in extreme dark, and the product doesn't seem to have any guarantee like other locks do (If your bike gets stolen they will pay, etc).
