I really appricate those links, that system looks to be much more useful than lo-jack is and the fact that i can look at a map/route of where i rode any given day is almost worth it alone but the security aspect and the system sending me txt messages is another benifit

I talked to the owner of Gps Protected on the phone. He told me that when the system is installed and turned on, your bike would be inside a protective circle of a size you decide. If your bike moves outside that circle you are sent a texted message on you cell phone that your bike has been moved. You can then either start tracking it yourself of call the Gps company to track it for you. They will call the police of you can just have that done automatically, or you can call the police. It's up to you how you want the system to work. He claimed there's no place in the whole country where it wouldn't work.

The unit is about the size as a pack of cigarettes. It costs about $400. Then you have to pay for tracking. He said they have a lot of different plans, starting with unlimited tracking down to 7-10 times a month. He said after the novelty wears off you probably won't track your own bike very much. I think up to 10 trackings a month was about $7.95 a month

He said the company has never lost an asset. He said they mainly sell these things to rental company's and trucking company's. They used to cost over $1000 but then these little ones were invented and the cost came down. Now they're trying to sell more of them for motorcycles.

If you want you don't have to call the police at all. you can just show up where you bike is with your friend, Smith and Wesson and start talking loud.

I saw the plans on how to make one yourself with an old cellphone and a cheap plan from PCS. You call the cellphone that is hidden and wired to the bike and then you can track it with the pin number. This is doable for a lot less money.

That would be a much better set up then lo-jack.
If you only seen how lojack actully works, you'd say to yourself what good is it.

-how much does it cost to install

was free with the purchase of the bike

-every 2 years it needs to be inspected for the warranty to be valid how much does that cost

is every 3 months here (sucks), and is free

-Do any of you have Lo-jack installed on your bikes and if so is it as hard to identify as they say it is


on 2 of my 4 bikes, yes it is hard, I have searched for it and cant found it, but on a bike friend we do found it, so is as hard as you hide it (they hide it)

is a good service, but sometimes they have incompetent installers that leave your bike badly assembled, and also the 3 months service is annoying... (Im in Argentina, probably you have 2 years)

I have lo jack, but also common sense, I have 5 locks on my bike (2 disck locks, 1 U lock , 1 chain , 1 "new york" lock, xena disck lock with alarm), and chained to a structural column, theft insurance, and probably will add a backup GPS device too

I should purchase the harley alarm, but is way too expensive (like 500 usd here)

I would like to add a remote detonator too, but that would probably put me in some black list
