Howdy and welcome to the forums.
One lesson is that they don't make an indestructible lock. If you need to leave a bike someplace subject to theft, get a crappy old bike and a good lock. If you get a good bike, keep it inside somewhere where it's reasonably safe.
Generally, try to put the lock through the rear wheel, the frame, and around the object in question. You can even take the front wheel off and put the lock through it as well.
Even on the better locks, they can be cut with power tools or torches, and the warranties are fairly worthless.
FYI, "bikers" usually is taken to mean Harley riders, so we're "cyclists".
Good luck and good riding.
