Alarm systems

Hello folks,

I was wondering if I could get some suggestions for good, effective alarm systems. I'm having to park my bike outside for the first time and I want to make sure I have some way to help deter possible theft attempts (if that's even possible) .. I know thieves are good at their craft by experience, my buddy's bike got stolen from right under his window the one day he parked it outside.

So with that said, is there any system you can recommend that will trigger an alarm with the slightest movement of the bike, or any other better option ?


Thanks in advance!

Get yourself a disk lock alarm and a cheapy bike alarm on ebay. a chain to strap it to something stationary. Don't forget to drop it a few times and sell all your expensive add-ons. Have theft coverage. Also cover it with a ragged out tarp and bungee cords.

Could just hook up a train horn to the alarm too.

Amidst the trolling there be valid points...

The rlink seems badass I used to have a scorpio remote paging alarm on a older bike of mine it worked great no telling how many times it would page me and I would go out there and see some punks sitting on my bike giving it a good look over! I never had my siren go off it would just page me I dont know if they still have the options to do that! I like the r link though let them take off with the bike then get the motohouston crew together and go open up the keg of whoopass!

I can get you a motorcycle specific alarm for $200 installed. I'd also recommend some good thick cable type locks to supplement the alarm. Chain types can be cut (even the thick ones). Cable type locks require a sawing motion to cut. We can get you pretty much anything you need to help keep the thieves away.

Give me a call 281-651-1961 and we'd be glad to help.

when is the last time anyone on here actually paid attention to a car alarm going off and thought to call the cops?

the most expensive alarm/cable combo wont stop a determined thief.... sadly if they want it they will find a way to take it. locks and alarms were only ment to keep honest people honest

Get one of these, they stay charged for almost a month and are very small to hide on the bike. I'm thinking of getting one. http://www.pettracker.com/pet-products

Thanks, I was hoping to spend a bit less but I might still just hit you up and see if we can work something out.

that is very true also... but most thieves rely on their ninja stealth abilities. sitting there cutting away at a cable while an alarm is going off will usually run them off. last thing they want is attention being drawn to them.
