LoJack doesn't prevent bike theft. They help in bike recovery. For $700 installed they better d@amn well help with recovery. Fact is, an audible alarm is a better deterrent than the system LoJack offers. You odds are better at recovery with LoJack- but $700! INSTALLED- Please!

I would imagine that alarms tend to be ignored in the places where vehicles are most frequently stolen. I bought a big ass chain and disk lock for SF and plan on chaining it to an immovable object whenever possible.

Riding a semi-ratty 2000 Zrex vs a shiny Tuono probably reduces the chance of theft too. Best of all is a spray can flat black '81 KZ750.

Hehe, true but I won't give up my bike if I can help it The best piece of advice I've gotten so far is to buy a rat bike and chain it to the tuono
