High Tech Security on a Antique - Anyone tried this

#1

Post by thsmith » Tue Feb 15, 2005 5:26 pm

I have a big chain and Master lock to secure my 49EL but I imagine I will not sleep well if I take a trip requiring overnight stays at a hotel.

There are some high tech alarms that will page you if there is any movement around the bike or if it is disturbed.

Anyone tried one of these ? I think the ones with its own battery would be best.

Thanks,

Tracy

i have used a paging alarm for quite a few years....the way i set it up was to use a mercury switch mounted in the bag. i set the bike on its stand and set the mercury switch to activate when the bike was tilted or bumped....im sure the swithch could be mounted most anywhere....the unit i have uses the bike battery with an internal battery backup.....good for five miles??????? i never get that far away from it!!!! lol lol

hello,

try this.

http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/Prod ... 93/c-10111

I have had this one on mine for 3 years and it works good.
it will fit under the fork tin on the left side.
the pager also works, as I have had friends test this out on me
:)
it gives you a piece of mind, it also will silent page so that someone can get a knee cap or two removed if need be.

The only alarm I ever installed was on an Indian Chief used for a resteraunt display. It was a pretty simple motion sensing device to keep the patrons from liberating souveneirs.
As for my personal ride, I always make sure I get a ground floor room and my pan sleeps inside right next to me. When I do let it out of my sight I leave the empty holster for my .44 magnum in plain view hanging from the handlebars. It tends to make a would be thief think long and hard about touching the bike knowing that the owner more than likely has that hand cannon in his posession and may be watching. It may not be foolproof, but it has worked so far.
