Carrying a security chain

Hello,
Can someone tell if there's a mean to securely carry a chain on the gsxs1000? Mine is 1.5m long, 12mm pewag and currently -on my sv- I can only carry it in a topcase
Thanks for your time

Hells Angels carry em over the shoulder. Easy access to use as, err? a "deterrent" .
When I'm touring it goes around the base of my tail pack.

Blue Naked 2015 ABS model. PCV, Nitron Ntr-1 shock, MRA screen(modified) Puig crash bungs, HEL lines and EBC-HH pads, job done. (Riding since 1959.)

Tail pack. I wouldn't leave it anywhere else. The ****'s Angels method is also good, but only if you can secure it tightly or don't lean much.

I carry a Datatool Python lock and chain (1.5m & 5.5kg) in an Oxford RT15 tail pack plus room for other bits and bobs.

Tail pack... Was not aware of this option. Thank. As for the other solution, I'm too tiny, it won't suit

If the bike is parked, wouldn't the chain be in use?

In the UK the thieves will pull up in a van and a couple of guys will lift the whole bike plus whatever screaming alarm is going off, into the back of the van and that's it. ...... gone. If it's locked to something solid with a big chain they will look for an easier option and hopefully your bike will still be there when you finish work.
