What alarms do you guys use? Whats the difference between a cheap one and a not so cheap one? Do those pagers really have good range? (like half a mile and through an apartment building)

Any recomendations on what to get/do and what not to get/do?

Thanks

Can't remember the exact company name on mine.......Gorilla??...anyway...tip sensor,vibration sensor,tamper sensor,and pager.
Definately worth every penny!Peace of mind when sleeping.....not sure of the pager signal distance....siren is so loud that I can easily hear it in my bedroom with the windows closed.I live in an upstairs appartment,old ass house style appartment.

If you were to get one,go big if you are not parking it in a garage or something.....it is a sound investment that goes from bike to bike....mine has been on the last four of my bikes.....paid for it self over and over.

Mine is a "armed gaurd".(cheapie, 150$ if I remember right) Claim a 2 mile range on the pager. Had for 3 yrs. Best passive alarm for me. I normally leave the speaker off so it only pages me and my .40cal. ONly has a tilt sensor but thats all I need. I dont want to know when someone is "about to steel it" I want to know when they are steeling it.:D

No problem with range inside buidlings. I worked at a huge tire shop and had to park way around back. Large concrete building and it still went off no problem while up front and inside. So range inside, under a mile, should never be a problem.

98 6R. TBR slip-on. No poser add-ons.

What I've always wanted to do is install an alarm with a pager, but disable the siren, and install one of the many GPS tracking devices, and then let my bike get stolen.

When the pager tells me someone's messing with the bike, I would load up the GPS website, and see where the bike goes to. As soon as the bike stops moving, I'd wander down to the location, with a couple friends, and take back not only my bike, but call the cops and inform them of where the theft ring is located.

If I wanted to go all out, I'd park a car or a minivan near the bike with a camcorder inside to record them stealing the bike, just for evidence purposes.

But that's just me.

I didn't do it, I swear.
And even if I did, what makes you think I would admit it to you?

There was a group of vigilantes in the Uk that you could hire to extract revenge. You'd call em and expain how yuor bike was stolen, so then they's sorta leave some sililar bait in a highly visible area, and stake it out. When the theives struck, so did they. They literally pummeled them...I thought it was pretty sweet [8D].
