Alarm systems and theft deterrents...

I see too many bikes stolen on this site, so tell me what do you use and recommend to keep your bike at home where it belongs when you're not on it? And where (if needed) did you get it installed? (your front lawn counts as a place too)

Keep it garaged, pay for a unit, or a storage unit. Something, get it out of view. That is my first and foremost, then lojack IMO.

I always kept it in the garage at home. If I'm not out there, the door is closed. I didn't make a big scene coming into the neighborhood, kinda like if you have a $$$ system in your car. If you bang when you come in, everyone knows you have it.

I wish I had a garage, but the owner before me converted in to a music studio. Looking at an outside storage. But that doesn't help me like if I'm using it for main transportation that day and say I have to run around town in it.

We sell the Scorpio Rlink. It's a decent alarm / GPS tracker, but it does not stack up to Lojack.

The Rlink is integrated into the Scorpio alarm so it's bulky. Because of that it's usually mounted in the rear cowl or under the seat, which is the first place thieves look. If your alarm is going off and they disable it, they'll find the Rlink module and it will be disabled too. It also has an antenna as well which is a clear give away to thieves.

Even if it's not disabled, GPS tracking does not do well inside of trailers or steel buildings, nor is it linked to law enforcement.

Another thing to consider: because it's a GPS tracker, it tracks the bikes movements and speed, both max speed and average speed. If you're involved in an accident it can be used against you to show excessive speed was a factor. I'll pass.

It might b bulky but I got mine hidden. Attendance for GPS is hidden also only thing I didn't hide is the perimeter sensor and shock sensor. Had to make wiring harness longer on it but wouldn't nothing to do just prep work sucked. Taking fairings off to find hide spots but after that nothing to it. Also have lojack also came on bike when bought it so I m double protected. Rlink though like the capabilities of it being able to access it from net. I wired the kill switch to kill bike if they are on it when they steal it. So it more peace of mind plus the rfid wont let it start without it so. It just knowing how to do it and right means happier me.

I have mine parked in the shop that is located in my back yard, there's one way in and one way out. You have to get past the iron gate leading to the back yard, through a narrow walk way, then past the 75 pound pit that is highly territorial, once you get past those two, you need to make sure the misses is not working cause her desk looks right out into the backyard.

Once in the back yard you will need to dodge the various childrens toys strategically placed as a deterent.

When you get to the shop you need to unlock the door, get the bike off the stands, then attempt to roll it out, past the toy field of death, past the misses working, past the dog, through the gate, then the hard part, you need to jockey it around the corner to clear the neighbor's fence, ( this in itself is a , even when not doing it under pressure).

I have no suspicion my would ever get stolen from my house, it's too much of a pain in the to get it out when I want to ride.

Now out in public, it's always close to the door/window, and disc locked.

If someone want your they're gonna take it. I just try to keep my as inaccesible as possible.

Do you have a backyard? Why not modify the gate so you can put your ride on the back porch?

Theives like the easy way out, Make things more difficult and they'll generally pass.

The way that worked for me was to line up the bike with the building or fence then pull the nose of my car up to it (inches away) cover it, lock it, and pull two cars on either side of the blocking car. Having three cars or cool neighbors is unfortunately a must. Plus my car alarm is really sensitive, so if anyone tried to take a peek my car alarm went off.

Now, I truely enjoy my garage. Appartment life blows goat for keeping nice vehicles. House alarm now alerts me of any poor souls foolish enough to trespass in the middle of the night.
