To be fair, I haven't actually used it on my scooter yet. But I figured I'd write my initial impressions and then update the review after a month of use.

This thing weighs a ton, is huge and looks indestructible. It's actually quite ridiculous looking and I can't imagine anyone in their right mind, not even a crackhead would try and attack this thing. This thing actually destroyed the box it came in. I would NOT recommend this for a bicycle unless you're going to leave the chain in one place and only use it there. For a scooter/motorcycle it's perfect. To actually carry this thing around with you on a bike would be exhausting. I posted a few images showing the size.

Size: NY LEGEND 1590 CHAIN W/NY PADLOCKColor: Black Verified Purchase
First off, it's kind of hard to truly review a lock based on pre-theft attempt performance. I mean, really what matters is that one unlikely day when someone tries to steal my bike and did they succeed or not?

That out of the way, it's hard not to be impressed by this thing.

1) The links are gigantic. If you know how big an iPhone is, then you know basically how large ONE link is...yeah, huge. (Links are a couple of mm smaller than iPhone, but you get the idea.)
2) The sleeve is nice and helps keep the bike from being scratched.
3) The lock itself is also quite huge. It's covered with a thick plastic sheath that itself appears to encase a metal sheath. As you can see in the stock pictures, these sheaths extend up to make getting a pry bar in there very difficult. In fact it's almost hard to lock it, but that's a good thing in this case.
4) It's heavy, as noted in other reviews. For me, I've transported it in a backpack which is basically dedicated to holding the Legend. I can't imaging putting it in a backpack with tons of other things, like electronics or your lunch. Those things might get crushed. (I have a pannier on the way that will replace my backpack method.)
5) This goes out to all lock manufacturers: Why can't you make an all-metal key? There's always this disclaimer in the instructions that the keys might break if turned prematurely. But that's because they're made with cheap plastic handles. I paid over a hundred dollars for this Legend: can I please have all-metal keys? Even if it costs an extra, I don't know, $5 bucks I'd be ok with that. (All manufacturers are like this --not going to dock review stars.)
6) This is the shorter model of the two Legends. I find it barely fits through my frame, back wheel and the secure pole.

This lock and chain is just awesome. I am 100% confident that my bike will always be waiting for me when I return to it! In 5 years of working and being a student in a downtown city, I've had 4 bikes stolen - which were locked up every time! When I came across this lock, I was shocked by the price... but then I thought about it: instead of spending a few hundred on a new bike every year, I'll pay for half another bike now as insurance to keep my current one. ... which is another good point about this lock - Kryptonite insures your bike up to $4000 if it is ever stolen!! That's pure confidence from a company right there, and no one else is offering anythig like that, so my confidence is also very high when I walk away from my bike.

This is definately a huge and heavy lock, but I don't see it as a problem and I use it every single day the sun is out. If you're a skinny lil whimp, you'll probably find yourself complaining carrying this thing around. I still laugh everytime I pick it up and put it over my shoulder, the sound it makes when it rattles is awesome (the links are 1/2" thick steel that way over a pound each!), and I can't believe I'm carrying it around for a bike... it seems like you should be tying a boat down with this thing! But that's the exact reason this lock is so great, it's not going to break! It's gonna take a torch or some heavy duty power tools to break it, and not many bike thieves are packing that kind of heat!

When I recieved this lock from amazon, the box was all busted up and the keys were missing. I called customer support and within like 2 minutes, they had another one on it's way with free 2 day shipping!! I was pretty upset at first, but I was very impressed with how they handled it, so I'm not gonna knock amazon at all for it!

i have a shared garage and have had many things stolen. I then bought a nice new bike and this new lock. I've had it for almost 6 mo. and nobody has touched my bike.

I watched YT videos about how it can actually be broken in like 5 mins. but its enough of a deterrent to scare away my neighborhood garage-vandals in San Francisco.

Would not buy this if i left my bike on the street for a long time as it CAN be broken- just a lot harder than a normal bike lock/chain.

Would buy again if i got another bike.

The 15-mm-thick hardened-steel links on this 10-pound beast slide uncooperatively when you try to violate them. Bust the plastic off the dead bolt and it reveals a scarier-looking steel shackle. My bike is safe ;-)

(+) Cylinder has a drill-resistant protection system. $4,500 antitheft protection;

(-) Literally heavier than some bikes.
