What’s the best way to secure a parked motorcycle?

I’m planning on buying my first motorcycle within a few days. At my home, there is a small garage/shed building, where I plan to store it. Securing the doors to this building is not an option.
I have my lawn mower also stored in this building, secured by a long steel cable
looped through the mower’s frame and around one of the building’s supporting posts, locked with a Master combination lock.
While this may be a viable solution for immobilizing the bike at home, it would be a little unwieldy for use elsewhere. Are motorcycle-specific locks worth the money? The ones I've seen cost in the range of $50 and up.
