Don't have it, may spring for it on next bike- already installed before pick up maybe haggle it into the sale.
Friend got his mustang back with it.

Sat tracking is an option too, in a big city most cop cars are going to have lojack trackers though and that allows the cops direct hands on tracking over a go between with satellite.

Lojack is careful about who they allow to install it- problem is real (smart/professional scumbag) theives will have it installed on a legit bike and then figure out where it is mounted.

Still for about $900 and maybe some insurance savings- could be worth it.


How well could it be hidden on a zx10r? not to many open spaces to hide something even the size of a cell phone.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

Maybe sat tracking for you then.http://www.phantomtracking.com/Store...l?body=company

Can also alert help when you wipe out- supposedly, kind of imitating on star.

They better not monitor speeding though, damn Orwellian slant on society lately.

here is a lower buget way you could do it but you'd have to be quick before they found and tossed the tracker- it will call and alert you though.

Sophisticated real-time security and tracking device uses global GPS and wireless Internet communication to secretly keep tabs on anything that moves.
Keep it hidden in the trunk of a car, stashed in a child's backpack, zipped into a computer briefcase anything you want to keep track of and be able to find!
Program speed limits and distance restrictions Locate 1 will automatically send a message when it moves or travels too far or too fast, based on those limits you set!
Features automatic updates every hour. Easy-to-read reports summarize Locate 1's daily activity and movements over the past 30 days.
No bigger than a deck of cards, weighs no more than a cell phone.
Requires Web service subscription; monthly fees range from $19.95 to $49.95, plus activation fee.

The dealer I purchased the 10 from offers LocJack today, but didn't back when I purchased it new. I believe the installed price is around $600.

The one thing I find really hokey about LoJack is that they don't offer LoJack decals for the bike. Their website FAQ claims they're not a deterrent, but a recovery device.

Personally, I'd rather someone deterred than ending up with a partially stripped motorcycle. I guess they're just trying to protect their little piece of the world.

Dress for the slide & not the ride

But if they KNOW that it has lojack then it will go into a special van or cargo container and be stripped now, rather than be left somewhere and watched for a day or two to see if it is located or just get ridden and hopefully caught.

That is why no warning sticker- use a pager alarm for that and a decal of a big gun maybe.

Or maybe I should just buy a BMW

From what I've seen, you can practically leave the key and no one will take the thing.

Yeah- no BMW rider is buying hot parts or even used likely.

A BMW labeled motorcycle cover that goes to the ground covering wheels is an old theft deterent trick. Specially when beemers were all ugly "toasters" and no sporties.
