Here's another tracking system:

www.trackmenow.com

I'm thinking about this or the one posted above. While at home, my bike is parked in the garage sandwiched between the garage wall and one of my cages. So the thief will have to hotwire the car and move it out of the way to get to the bike. I also usually arm the Scorpio alarm when I'm storing the bike. But the thief has to get past the garage door which is on a automatic garage door opener and the monitored home security system that also has the garage as part of its zone.

When I'm riding, I depend on the Scorpio alarm but I won't stay away from the bike for long. And I try to park it within eye sight. At work I don't have anything to worry about. My work place is totally gated and the guards are heavily armed.

I just leave a note on my bike at night. It reads, "To whom it concerns, If you must take this bike, please remember that it is a package deal.....you get my ex-wife too."

So far, no takers. [smilie=B:

No matter where you go, there you are.

Nice. I really like the MP5 a lot.

Incidentally, have you ever fired an automatic Thompson? The bolt is heavy enough that the gun's center of gravity changes as it's firing, giving it this sickening "here we go" rolling feeling while you're firing it. They say that back when they were issuing them to our boys, they'd tell them "aim for the right knee." After firing one, I know why---if you put it on their knee and let 'er rip, the recoil carries it right through their vitals. Oh yeah, the open bolt on these things is fucking nerve racking as all hell.

The Grease gun (what's its designation? Can't remember...) is also a fun little sumbitch.

Please don't tell me it's the Mk. 23. That's one clunky f'in gun. I'll take a 1911 any day. In fact, I'm thinking of getting me a Sigarms GSR 1911. Check this out: http://www.gunsandammomag.com/ga_handguns/gsr_0401/

I've never shot a Tommy. I love my MP5, it is one of the smoothest shooting full autos I've ever shot. Pure Sex! However, they are about to swap us all over to M4 .223 Colt Commandos with the single, three round, or full auto selectors. Two of the guys on the team already carry them with halographic sights and they are some bad bitches! Full auto is a handful and that is why I prefer my MP5.

My H&K .40 is the USP model and I like it but do love my P226 as well!

As for the Rotty he's my eyes and ears outside and he don't miss nothing! Too bad about your apartment complex! I think classifying a Rotty as a dangerous dog is [smilie=b: . They just protect their own that's all.

Hell yeah it's fast..........DUMBASS!

There probably wouldn't be much left of my bike so there wouldn't be any point in coming. [smilie=b: :D

I guess you're talking to me here, or if you're not, well, I did just move from Boston to Austin at the beginning of the summer.

In any case, Austin has much better riding than any I've seen up in the northeast. I live within a few miles of a stretch of twisties that puts Loudon to shame :-)

Of course, that's not true across all of Texas---Austin has much better twisties than Dallas, from what I hear...

Absolutely agree. Pure sex, and very managable even on full auto.

Sounds nice. I shot an M4 chambered in 9x19mm and it was pretty sweet, but I definitely preferred the MP5. Add the hotter .223 and it must be quite a handful. Sexy little bitch, though.

Ahh, the USP is pretty nice. .40S&W is a pretty sweet round, but 9mm does it for me, especially considering how much cheaper it is to go plinking :-)

The H&K Mk 23 is a honker. I shot one of the special forces ones with the combo IR/visible combo illuminator/laser sight. Not bad, but f'in huge. Keeps the nose down on double taps (heh, almost as well on that chambered in .45ACP as my P226 in 9x19mm), but at what a price!

Damn right. Oh well, I'll probably find another place by the time I'm ready for a dog anyway...
