You could try a Tazer hooked to a motion sensor. It would be simple, efficient and viciously effective.



Or, you could buy a Honda PC800. Can't imagine anyone stealing one of those.

How about that gawdawful furry bodywork stuff they used to put on sportbikes in the late 90s? A few months ago I saw a bunch of those cats with furry CBR 929's. It was hideous. I really like those old 929s and wouldn't mind someday buying one used, but those cats couldn't give me their bikes.

Someone stole the whole front end off my bike back in August. Insurance totalled the remains. I feel for you.



I don't know of any paging/tracking systems for bikes. Sorry.



But I do feel you pain.

the cell phone message could say...



hey MOron better start running, i hope you're close to your bike, good luck



or



hey MOron someone's stealing your bike and you can't do anything about it



on the other hand the tracking system sounds like a better idea.

Over here in Norway we have something called a Guard System. A GPS tracking device is installed on the bike (secret location decided by you), and Guard Systems traces the stolen car or bike. Your insurance company will pay for the tracing, by aircraft if necessary. As an additinoal bonus you can expect a hefty reduction in your fully comp insurance... Pricey at around $ 1,000.00 + installation, though.

Why not place a "Bouncing Betty" under the side stand with the weight of the bike holding the pin down...........

That or good insurance. If my bike got stolen I'd let State Farm buy me a new one I guess

Depends. Lots of collateral damage from a bouncing betty. Might be bad news if the bike is parked near a school.



A good idea if you are parked at a rap concert though.
