I built my own GPS tracker... It transmits my bike's position every 90 seconds when the key is in the on position. (The update rate is actually dependent on the speed of the bike...faster at higher speeds.) The location can then be monitored via the internet.... The whole package is smaller than a deck of cards & the total cost was about $150.

how does that help? the thieves arent gonna have the key to your bike. theyre usually stolen by being thrown in the back of a truck. the only one thats getting tracked is YOU.

Some funny replies.

And yes, this is good anyhow because it lets the theives know the bike might just be bait waiting to get bit and then their hooked. lol

I heard a rumor bait bikes were going to be everywhere.... Especially apartment complexes.

And about the whole shooting someone in the back, its true you will be screwed if you shoot them in the back and they live. Ill chase them, shoot them and drag them back on my property if i have to. I also hear, if you dont kill them, you can be sued so kill them and if they are on your property, your safe. lol

Ok ok, i wouldnt actually do that.... well, depends on what happened and the situation i guess... lol

people are giving a lot of really odd advice that isn't supporting by any law, either in the books or from the courts.
If you shoot someone and they live, they can sue you. If you shoot someone and they live, their family will sue you for wrongful death. Youre not immune from suit just because they are dead.
And I don't want to offend anyone but you know what the best alarm system is? full coverage insurance. Cause no matter what you do to your bike, you could know exactly who stole it and where they took it, its not gonna do you a whole lot of good. If you shoot someone to get it back, you are going to get arrested and detained in jail while they decide what charges to press against you and put you before a grand jury, even if they decide that there is not sufficient evidence to try you, you will have to deal with all that. You'll probably end up paying at least $2000 for a lawyer in the meantime though. And thats the best case scenario.
The worst case is you pull out your colt and they pull out their SKS and put your in the morgue, and your wife and kids are wondering why you thought your $5000 bike was worth more than your life.

A bike is a luxury item. Cops don't really care that much when yours gets stolen; they file reports for home invasions and stolen cars all day long. While you may be emotionally attached to your motorcycle, in general no one else is, not your wife, not the police, and not the theives that are stealing it.
If its that important to you just get insurance so you can let it go and not risk anyone's life, and go buy another one. Or consider parking in a garage or your living room or whatever.
there are only so many places to hide lojack or GPS or alarms or whatever, and a lot of bikes are thrown on the back of trucks so the ignition is never going to be on, and an alarm won't do much good. You can dissassemble your average bike in a matter of minutes with an allen wrench and if you know what youre looking at it will be obvious if there is any kind of gps or lojack or alarm on the bike. they aren't all that complicated!

SOO in summary this bike bait is a good idea if you can get the cops on board, but in general, get insurance and be careful with where you park your bike and how you secure it in the first place and hopefully it won't be an issue.

Didnt read the whole post but for the shooting someone and them being dead or alive part, i wasnt supporting either one but if your life is in danger, then do what you need to do.

As far as the suspect being dead or alive, if he/she is on your property threatening you, you can lawfully shoot them under self defense. You are also lawfully able to defend your property. I spoke to a cop a couple days ago and asked him specifically "if someone were to come on another persons property to damage or steal something at night time, would it be legal to shoot them" and he said yes because it is ON YOUR PROPERTY and they are a threat to you, your family, your possessions or all of the above.

Well no matter what, you will go to jail unless the person is actually inside your house after breaking in and you shoot him. Then, your totally safe. An outside shooting, they will take you in while they investigate. Thats the procedure from what i understand but that doesnt mean you convicted.

lol, ok.
the point is that shooting someone is going to disrupt your life in a major way, whether you end up being convicted for murder/manslaughter, or not. So when you could accomplish the same goal (having your bike not stolen) through lesser means than shooting someone, and not have to deal with the lawyers, the jail time, the other prisoners, your wife/significant other going crazy through it all, etc... shooting people starts to make less sense.

You missed the hamster false alarm earlier yesterday. I came outside and the mailman had a severed head, I was like "down hamster" and it nearly turned on me. Sorry if the mail is late on the block this week. Blame my hamster.
