Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Chain Disc Lock
Great for theft protection
This chain is everything it says it is. Extremely heavy duty and high quality. The lock is the same and easy to operate. I don't think you could cut through this in any reasonable amount of time without a blowtorch.
The only downside is that it is huge and heavy. This is what you want in a security chain but is can be a bit of a hassle to get it through the swing arm and wheel. Still better than getting your bike stolen though.
I had a bike stolen this year, now I don't worry about it.

This is one serious chain...
Got the 5' chain to loop through my tire in the garage. It's definitely heavy, so don't expect to take this anywhere with you. It's also not really long enough to loop through many parts of the bike.
The plus of having a chain is you can wrap it around a pole or to an anchor in the ground if you have that option. It's also quite daunting, which is half the point - keeping thieves away to begin with.
My only question after-the-fact is would a big U-lock have been as effective.

This is heavy duty
I have a $20k bike, spending a little more than $100 to help protect it is well worth the money.

High quality but a bit short
This is a very good chain and the lock is smooth and easy to lock and unlock. The cloth cover to protect your paint is however about 1 link shorter than I think it should be, leaving more metail than I'd like exposed. I also wish it came about 1ft longer to give me more flexibility to wrap it around more parts. I can go through the swingarm but not the wheel as well. Overall though it's a nice thick chain with a quality lock and should be a good deterrent. I actually used two chains as we'll as a xena alarmed disk lock and feel pretty secure with it on my new ninja 650.

Cheap chains can be cut with cheap bolt cutters, and the best chains are prohibitively expensive. This product is a great middle ground.
It won't stop a professional thief, but that's not what I'm worried about with my type of motorcycle. I'm mostly worried about an opportunist throwing my lightweight dual sport in the back of a truck and driving away. If you own a late model supersport, it might be worth looking into the high end chains, as this chain can still be cut with the type of bolt cutters a professional thief would use.
I'm glad I purchased the 5' length, I don't think the shorter one would have even been usable in my situation. If they had offered an even longer length I would not have hesitated to buy it. Somewhere closer to 10' would actually be ideal for me. The rear wheel is easy to chain, but with 5' it's difficult to get it through the frame.
The feature set is impressive. I like the cover on the chain. It prevents unnecessary metal on metal contact. The lock itself is very nice because it can be used as a standalone disc lock. When I'm at home I have the chain through the frame or rear wheel, and on the go I use the lock through the rear brake disc.

This thing is a beast!
This chain definitely adds some serious security to your motorcycle. Whatever you have your bike chained to with this thing might as well be part of the bike itself to a potential thief.

I use this chain for work great material The only way somebody's cutting this chain off is to try to cut off whatever's connect to the chain
