recommendations for covers/locks?

I'm going to purchase a GS500F this weekend, and I'll have to park it on the street during the riding months. There are 2 other motorcycles out there I've seen parked daily for the past couple months as well, so I'm not too concerned about someone lifting it into their truck and running, but Murphy's Law and all..

so, what I'm looking for more I guess is what kind of lock do you feel performs best, is easy to transport (I'm not sure if the GS500F has any place to store cargo, much less the size of it), works well with a motorcycle cover, etc.

Is locking the back disc as effective as locking the front disc??

Here's the way I look at it, the front fork is already locked. If you have the disc lock on the front disc, when trying to steal the bike, they can pick the bike up and wheel it using the rear wheel. Eventually getting them in a better position to just lift the bike and put it on a truck.

My logic is: Say they pop the ignition and unlock the front fork, then if they try and roll it back the back wheel will have the disc lock.

Let me know what you think of my logic here.

Bottom line is, if they want it they are taking it, I understand that. But just want to get your opinions.
