When my son and I go riding in PA we sometimes stay overnight at a local motel to ride both days and I am ALWAYS worried that a would be thief eyes up to Polaris ATVs on a trailer in a parking lot - I run a heavy chain through the frame of both machines and it is padlocked to the trailer in both sides - I then also chain the 2 quads together . I obviously remove with keys and the trailer is locked to the truck as well as a locked pin through the receiver hitch . I also only go to chain hotels that have security cameras and park in a well lit area

The sad part is nothing will stop a real thief if they want your stuff ... But if you make it hard for them they may just move on

Unfortunately you can put on all the locks, chains and cables you want. The thieves have these:
4.5" (115 mm) 20V MAX* XR Brushless Paddle Switch Small Angle Grinder with Kickback Brake - DCG413B | DEWALT
They are quiet and will cut anything.
And for the record, we DO NOT HAVE FREE healthcare. Probably something Obama told you. We pay for it all the time. We are taxed to death. Have you Americans seen what we pay for gas, smokes, booze and all the sales tax we pay. Not to mention income tax?
We dont pay for it at the dr. Office or hospital like you do, but we pay through the nose.

Protect your rights
Spay or neuter your liberals today!

no free speech either. read some guy going to a anti muslim rally was arrested and put in jail for having hate speech on his computer. In Canada the truth is illegal. They were waiting for him at the border.
I know it can be easily cut but around here we mostly have opportunity thieves. they dont carry tools if they can easily get it they will. Mines also locked in a garage with a 100w flood light that lights up the whole yard all night.

A thief would need to first learn my garage code, then gain access to the house itself through the door from the garage, know and punch in the code to shut off the house alarm, find one of two sets of car keys, then find the key to the quad which is in an obscure location, pull out either my wife's car or mine as they block the quad in, then move the garbage cans, fire up the quad and roll out. All before he/she's pinned by one of numerous guns I have strategically placed in my home.
Good luck!
