The motorcycle recovery stats for Lojack in the Houston area are phenomonal; 97% recovery in the first 24 hours and 100% recovery period in the Houston area.

Lojack is the only system directly monitored / located by law enforcement.


The MH price for Lojack is $600.00 for the unit and $175.00 for installation.

That's it, no monthly fees, nothing else.

Please give us a call if you have any questions.

Ok guys, let me clear this up. The Lo Jack system does not have a pager built in. It is similar but it works different. A pager system is designed to notify the owner of the motorcycle at that moment that his or her bike is being moved, sat on, touched, kicked, etc. In most case if someone is looking for a pager system it is because they want to be notified the exact moment the bike is being touched. You will not get that with Lo Jack.

The Lo Jack unit has a built in sensor and comes with a key fob. It will notify the owner via text message, phone call or email after the bike has been MOVED for a certain amount of time. Not touched, or knocked over or sat on. The notification is there to let the owner know to contact the police so it can be tracked.

The main purpose of the Early Warning system is to reduce the amount of time between the bike getting stolen and the owner actually finding out. It is not an ALARM system. It is a theft recovery system only.

An alarm is good for letting the owner know something or someone is messing with or trying to steal their bike. It does no more than that. The Lo Jack system is designed to let the owner know that the motorcycle has been stolen and offer them a way to get it back. This I prefer this option a lot better than to just knowing that it was stolen.

Some statistics for yall. With the early warning system. Lo Jack is 99% recovery with in the first 24 hours. That is about as close as you can get to a guarantee to get your motorcycle back. Lo Jack also has additional warranties you can buy to help cover your loss if there are damages to the bike. You must carry full coverage for some of the warranties

Call Brandon at the shop with any questions you have on Lo Jack.

Hopefully this helps clarify

Oh and the bike he's getting has a MicroTrak GPS unit installed on it that includes an accelerometer and tilt sensor that will send alerts to the web based tracking system whenever the bike is moved off the sidestand, accelerates above 3 or 5 mph (can't remember which)....

and even though its a little big brotherish, you can track routes, and speeds with it as well

That will work great as long as he is getting a signal from the satellite. If the bike is put in a van or a bed covered truck it will probably loose signal.

Can't track it without a signal

surprisingly it has picked up in places i didn't expect it to... the underground parking garage at work for one...

I'd recommend an alarm of some type too... I've kept it under lock and key in the garage when i'm not right next to it so the alarm at the house has it covered when i'm not around.

I use a scorpio paging alarm in my bike, and it works great. I tested it in the PP1 parking lot and the claimed 1/2 mile range works flawlessly.

If you do decide to get an alarm and want it installed let me know. I will give you the info to a badass guy that does my installs. He offers a fair price and honest work, was referred to me by a fellow MH member.

Thanks! Based on what I read on their website I understood (wrongly) that as soon as the bike was moved at all I would get an email or text message and the only delay might be the speed of the internet or phone system.

So what is the time frame and distance before it goes off?

Does it just measure GPS coordinates every 10 minutes or so?

I don't believe lojack has anything to do with GPS. It is a transponder, that once activated, sets of a receiver in police cars nearby.

Lo Jack says that there needs to be a few minutes of constant movement. This way it stops the annoying phone calls every time you move the bike across the garage with out the key fob close.

I have heard on several accounts that just by pushing the bike out of the garage and into the drive way people have been alerted. Point being is that it doesn't take much to alert, but it is not instant.


Also the unit does not alert the police. You will alert the police. You will receive a call, text or email asking you to check your unit from Lo Jack. If it is missing you then alert the police, give them the info off of your Lo Jack unit and then they start tracking.

Whole process takes about 5 mins.

FWIW GPS units may give the customer a more exact pin point location quicker, but it is always relative to the satellite signal. Lo Jack works off of an AM band. The bike could be in a steel container and the signal can still be tracked.
