Bike Security

Do any of you guys put alarms on your bike? If you do, what brand and how has it worked out for you? I was looking into a brand called phantom tracking, if you have info on that please post it up too. I cant seem to find pricing on their website anywhere.

for alarms ive heard nothing but good things about the scorpion. dunno anything about the phantom as far as good or bad but it is tracked by GPS and the bike can be easily hidden from satellite. my personal preference is LO JACK, but im bias. my bike was stolen twice and recovered both times within teh same day.

Love Love Love my Scorpio... No its no lojack but it helps deter punks who want to sit on your bike or touch it and even the small time thief. To be 100% honest if someone steals my bike i dont want it back because most of the time they through it into the back of a van and mess it all up. I rather make a insure claim and get the newest model... Thats just me

That 'Spring' address is actually out by Hooks Airport and is a 'former' member of questionable reputation.

That system looks pretty sweet plus it has the crash detection. LoJack doesn't have that. That is the selling point for me. Say you want to go out for a ride one day, but no one else wants/is available to ride and you hit some loose gravel in a turn, go down and are hurt. Phantom will detect it and send emergency response to your location. I don't have it personally, but from what I've read it sounds like the better of the two in overall personal protection - bike and self.

Can't find a price on the Phantom system though online. www.americandreamcycles.com is returning an error "Service Unavailable" when you click on anything from their homepage.

i've seen that actually happen, but the circumstances were that the bike was just started and left running in one place for too long, wasn't a crash... but he still got called. i have an alarm, armed guard, but i don't want a tracking system, if my bike is stolen, i'll just get a new one. i'll judt do what i can to keep it from getting stolen

I was able to view past the homepage, but I wasn't able to find any pricing on it. Just thought it was a pretty cool device, but I'll probably never get one on the gixxer. If I had a Ducati or something higher end, then I would look into it with a little more seriousness. Right now, just playing it smart. But sometimes it sucks having to watch you back all the time when you are out. She stays in my garage at home and close to the front door or nearest camera when I go out.

price i think is about $800 with a $15 per month fee, that basically covers the cell fees that it would take to call you or text you, and using the GPRS to track the bike. the GPRS signal is a cell signal.

What about GLOCK? I heard it's a pretty good alarm system and will leave a good hole in the thief if you catch them in the act.

the only thing i dont like about lo-jack compared to phantom is you have to call the people with the lo-jack and then they call police before it gets tracked and it could be long gone by then (i.e. taken while you are asleep and no one notices til morning) the phantom once armed will automaticly track and alert police once triggered
