I was worried about the same thing. You can get disc locks, chain locks, and some type of monitoring device like Lo-Jack.
With disc locks, you can get some that are high quality, have sensor alarms, and are lightweight. Downside others have said is when you forget to take it off you'll get a suprise.
With chain locks you can get pretty much the same thing. The problem with some of them is that they are heavy and you might not always have a place to chain the bike to.
Monitoring devices are nice, might lower you insurance, and will contact you via email/phone if your bike is moved or stolen. Some charge additional monthly fees, some work with police, some don't (check with your Police dept.)
Like Weljo said, if someone wants it bad enough, they will get it. Carry insurance, have your farkles covered by insurance also. Lock the forks, park in safer areas if possible, etc. Most people don't think our bike is that valuable. Others have recommended parking next to BMW's or Harleys as another form of safety.
I purchased the Xena Disc Lock XX-14 after seeing recommendations on here. You get a 20% discount if you are an AMA member. The lock was shipped and arrived in 2 days and I am quite pleased with it.
