Surely it will be the same as any other bike? Possibly the option to go a bit more secure as I will assume that weight won't be as much of an issue.

My insurance company requires Gold secure
Otherwise an ordinary D lock.

My insurers stipulated a Gold Standsard Lock too.
I found a Master Lock DL 210, supplied with a steel cable with eyes either end and four keys, was the answer .
At £41.99, it represented good value.
It is heavy, but that's the price you pay for security. The "D" is large enough to go around the standard Sheffield cycle stand and the cable helps with other fixtures like lamp posts and steel seats.

I was also considering the kryptonite evolution ? Halfords do it for £48

Depending on what you already have, in addition I found a long cable helpful. D-lock can encompass rear wheel and seat tube to a Sheffield stand but that leaves the front wheel vulnerable. I used to use long 8mm Abus cable round front wheel and lock it into the D-lock which was seat tube and rear wheel. This does not provide extra protection to somebody cutting/breaking the D-lock but it prevents casual theft of front wheel leaving bike/D-lock.

I fitted an Abus Dutch bike lock. Unusual in the UK and quick and easy to use. Quite happy with that.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. Make a difference...

I'm not sure the cable is Gold Secure. CHeck how easy they are to cut.
