I'm curious. I don't see a place to insert a key, or align chosen numbers in a row. What prevents a potential thief from moving the bike?

not sure what you mean. The pin is locked in and cannot be removed without the key. wheel won't move with the pin in it.
Key goes in the hole to the left of the pin, when you turn it the pin comes out.
Key for the pin is a different key to the one to start the bike

And to add to this the pin is spring loaded until a hole in the brake disc lines up with it. If the pin is not locked yet the bike will move a foot at most til the pin pops into a brake rotor hole, then it won’t move at all.

Hi curious Dave, have a look at these extra pic, this is the security key and the pin the lock secures.

This is a close-up of the lock and the hole left from the pin removal, with the key in the lock.

I thought I might also mention the rubber foot-peg inserts while I'm at it, I think they are std on the Carbon and the 21 model, better vibration isolation and grip.

I had one of these locks on my BMW GS, I found it really fiddly to use and a real faff to get the key in, but do agree unlike a traditional disc lock there is no way to get to the pin if you were trying to cut it.
