Kryptonite Disc Lock Reminder
Works as intended!
Reminds me to take off my lock! Works great! The finish on it gets worn down from the metal on the lock a little and I kinda wish it was a bit longer (going from rear disc to handle bar isn't really that possible on my Ninja 300). Other than these two minor things, it's perfect!

If you use any kind of lock that threads through your front brake disc, you must use this, too. Before this ingenious tool was brought to the market in the mid-1980s, riders like me were taking off, forgetting that they had a disc lock attached to their bikes. At best, it was embarrassing to tip over your bike when the lock hit the bottom of the fork sleeve; at worst, you seriously damaged your brakes. I did that twice before these things came to the market. Not once since the cords arrived. I have two of them now for my two Kryptonite disc locks, and I just replaced the one that was over fifteen years old. Not because it failed, but because the orange had faded quite a bit from years in the sun.

Works Perfectly and Just what you would need
Work perfectly, the length is right for my BMW K1600gtl. This will save you from trying to drive off and the bright orange can be seen to deter thief's.

Great little reminder
Bought this as a reminder for the disk lock. Even though I normally don't forget about the disk lock, you never know!!

I accidentally bought this thinking my disc lock didn't come with one. Cheap enough not to return. But its nice to know I have a back up if I lose the other. Better to be safe than sorry.

Simple and effective
Cheap, simple and easy. I won't put my disk lock on without it. I thought it was kinda short but I kinda like how small it is when it's coiled up and it reaches where it needs to.

I use it whenever I use the disc lock
It seems like a no−brainer that a rider would remember that he's got a lock on his disc brake. But I had a close call myself and there is no shortage of stories of people who have damaged their bikes and themselves, sometimes quite severely, when they forgot this detail.
Using this cable, makes it just about impossible to forget.
Shortcomings: I just wish it was about one foot longer. It springs back when the lock is opened, WHIPPING through the air, making it a bit of an eye hazard. As it's stretched with use, the issue has lessened, but it's still there.

Good for lots of things...
This cord has steel braided line on the inside, so it's very durable, and would likely be difficult to cut through without something reasonably stout.
I use the cable to lock my helmet and sometimes my jacket (by running the cable through one arm of the jacket).
