I just wouldn't ride it there, especially if I had a nice bike. Prob not what you wanna hear though. Never tracked a lojack bike before but my concern would be if officers got the signal while it was mobile the suspect would run anyway and probably wreck the bike. There goes your $700.00 lojack and 8k bike.

I had a phantom tracking unit installed on my bike. Expensive, but it keeps me from worrying. Anyone touches it, moves it, sits on it, it will send a signal to my key fob if within distance. It also sends a signal to the dispatch center, which will then text my cell. They will then call to see if everything is alright. If stolen you tell them to activate the gps on the unit. They will then call the local pd and give them the information. I know someone in the houston area that is a dealer for the system. Phantomtracking.com

I thought lojack couldn't track a bike if it was mobile due to the vibrations; then a little bit ago they started offering them... So problem fixed? Does anyone have experience with this?

I have the scorpio alarm and it works remarkable, people usually back off once the alarm starts to chirp. And if they don't, the system goes into a full ear-splittering 130dbs alarm.

The thing that's worked best for me is having a bike no one really wants. The 250 is not worth the effort to steal, and so cheap you could buy it with pocket change.

I don't think the police is doing the tracking. Lojack triangulate the signal and tell the police where it is but sometimes can't be 100% due to proximity of others buildings or structures.

there's also like a home made lojack sorta thing you can make on your own... you have to get like a nextel or boost mobile phone with GPS. I'll post up the instructions if i find them. I'm sure prevention is important, but if it does happen you still have a back up

all security systems or tracking devices have their shortcomings.

I have a really think "kryptonite" cable and a big U lock with a special side cut key and a 6 tumbler lock.
its not fool proof, but youre not gonna cut, smash, pry, freeze, or burn through it with anything short of a gas powered cement saw or a torch, and I don't think your average thief has those (and I think they'd draw some attention using them if they did). And I always put the cable through the frame, through the swingarm, the rear tire, and around something relatively permanent (telephone poles, light poles, etc).

its not fool proof, and sometimes its a pain in the , but IMO is the most security I can get. And it only cost me about $50.
