Is anyone running one of these? I'd like to know how easy it is to configure the alarm notification method. I keep mine locked up in a shop in my appartment complex. Well within the 1/2mi range. So normally I'd like to just have a very quiet or silent alarm go off on the bike. I'd keep the pager on hand and give the would-be theif a surprise. But mainly any false alarms would make me a very unpopular tennant. However when I'm out and about in public parking areas I'd like it to sound off full blast if anyone messes with it. I'd like to be able to switch between these two modes easily. Anyone?

Prox sensor would be nice to keep an eye on anyone messing with my baggage. But I went through Talon's entire forum and can't find any info about changing alarm modes. I'd hate to have to fork out the cash for a Scorpio just for this one feature but I may have to. I suppose I could wire up a hideaway micro switch somewhere to kill the power to the siren.:headscrat

Has you considered lojack? I myself am dealing with the same thing as all of you. I hear all these stories about bikes being stolen and dont want to be the one telling that story too. I know its like $900 for it but at least they can track it and find it. just my 2cents, think ima do dat cuz atleast i know it would be found. not to mention with more of a chance of catching the person who did it instead getting a call from pd telling ya they found your "bike" (which will probably just be the frame if your lucky) in some alley days/weeks/months later.

it also got a anti-hijack device so the theif can't start the bike.
Yeah but its only good for a certain millage I believe,I thought it also it had the alarm on it. But type in Motorcycle alarms in google, read the reviews for them, and weigh out your options. I know that its probably not what you wanted to here but your not getting any real good feedback on here. Or if you dont want to do the research and just go off of hearsay you can always try another forum.

Here is what I have. If you have the cash I believe this is a great solution.

1)
A SR-i900. It's awesome and works great.
You read all about it here: http://www.scorpioalarms.com/products/motorcycle/sr-i900/

2)
I had LoJack installed, and it is not limited by miles. But it is not available everywhere you would have to check. They can find your bike even if it's inside a warehouse, building, Concrete, etc... It gives me a better piece of mind.

3) I have my bike in my garage and I still but the lock the neck, wheel lock, chain it up, and and if you can put your car right up to the garage door.

All this however is not going to matter if you are not careful when you park it, when not at home. Out in the street. Always try to have your bike in sight and always make sure that your scorpio alarm is within distance.

Good luck.

The SR-i900 runs from about $350 - $400 plus installation.
The LoJack is $900 plus installation and they come to your house.

For me total was:
$450 for the alarm with installation
and $1100 for the LoJack.

Total Cost:
$1550

Bike Value $8500 I say it's well worth it.

Lojack also offers reimbursement services if your bike cannot be located. visit their website but they have packages that will reimburse you 5k in addition to your insurance money. more than enough to replace most street bikes (non-modified)
