So what you're saying is the fact that my insurance complany gives almost no discount for being guaranteed they'll get the bike back means my insurance company is probably screwing me. I find it hard to believe that such pillars of the community would do such a thing.

Does that mean each guy was in three different rings? Maybe I'm math challenged.

Yeah, my semi-rat 1980 Yammie XS850 serves as it own theft deterrent. sometimes I put a disc lock on it, but that's just so I don't feel like I wasted money on the disc lock.

Just think, by 2139 the system will have paid for itself!

That is definitely one way to look at it. It sure is a lot of fun for the police when we do get it though. We can make sure they crash out and ruin your bike though. Make sure you tell us before hand and we will make him wreck when we chase him. That way you still get paid and I still get to have fun.

Don't tell me you just figured that out today.

I believe its only available in certian cities (large cities) and you have to get it installed by a dealer. THe dealer would be able to give you some pricing. I thought about getting, but couldn't justify spending that much when I have insurance. I have a CBR1000rr (yes I am wreckless, immature and reek havoc every where I ride), so no one of a kind there

Yes, I use to leave the keys in the old KZ on purpose in places like Pacoima but no takers, trash would be collecting around the bike after a few days and I'd have to move it again.

So does a motorcycle LowJack depend on power from the bikes battery?



If so I'd imagine that if LowJacks become more common thieves will simply disconnect the battery before they load any stolen bike into their van.
