I'm looking at what locks I should get for my new tourer and am interested in what has been tried, tested and recommended.
So far I'm thinking of getting a long (6ft) cable lock to run through the frame, both wheels and around some object and also a u-lock of some sorts. I'm a bit concerned about the u-locks weight though - don't know whether to get a bigger one to lock to other objects or a small one to lock the back wheel to the frame (on the assumption that no-ones going to be carrying my fully loaded tourer anywhere fast).
Also I have no idea how panniers are best secured. I don't like the idea of taking them all off everytime I go into a museum or store but I also don't like the idea of having all my clothes & equipment (i'd carry money, camera etc. with me) waiting around for a new home. I've seen some steel mesh-like set-ups that wrap around bags but they're out of my price range.
