I find that putting pins laced with ebola on the handlebars helps...

I find that riding at excessive speeds and dropping your bike a couple of times seems to put them off?

I went for a datatool system 3 alarm, seems to work a treat quite sensitive so when any of the little b'stards in my road touch my bike it goes off and lets me know when I can smack em.

Which reminds me, I need to reconnect the speaker LOL

Decent alarm and decent disc lock are the main ones, with the ZX your after if its parked on your drive then get a ground anchor too, its the type of bike people will try and nick. Im lucky mines got less paint than a strippers changing room.

After a theiving bar steward tried to steal my bike I've gotten a bit paranoid.

Currently my bike gets put to bed with:

Acumen Cat 1 alarm
Oxford Monster disc lock
Xena Disc lock
Gold rated ground anchor
2 gold rated chains and locks (one supplied by the police at cost price when my last one got cut)
an alarmed cable lock
Oxford bike cover, with a rape alarm clipped to it.

And my partner is a very light sleeper. I sleep great :)

My shop has just started selling a bike specific tracker, it looks like a normal black fuse box. It's Thatcham approved, and most importantly allows you to track it in realtime through your own internet portal.

So if some theiving cnut nicks your bike you can see for yourself exactly where it is and take the appropriate action to rectify the situation.

It also has the ability to track and store all of the bike's movements (and speed if you want) for up to 3 months, importantly the speed option can be turned off.

Price is £299 fitted (same as most decent alarms) + £7 per month subscription (although you can buy upto 3 years worth at discounted rates).

Mine and Leroy's bikes are left outside...

No Locks... No alarm (on mine)... No security.

And according to statistics, I live in the 'Roughest' area of Exeter... :?

C'mon 'Scrotes' I could do with the insurance money... :wink:

What have I gotta do to get 'em nicked... ??? Leave the keys in the ignition... :roll:
Please help...

That sounds like a great piece of kit, provided the Mrs doesn't figure out how to use it! Also I'd like to defend cheaper alarms. Yep I fitted a Laser alarm to the car, and it was a pain, to sensitive (yes it was adjustable) going off when a lorry or load bike went by. On the bike I fitted an Acumen Cat 3 (£85 Flee Bay) with immobilizer, it's [censored] load, has a tilt sensor as well as electrical power sensing, can be fitted with a reed switch if the seat is lifted or luggage removed which I didn't both with. But it's never gone wrong in nearly 5 years, except for the LED no long flashes, and for sensitivity it's about right. Nobody would be able to touch the bike on your drive without you hearing. Downside is it has to be a Cat 1 alarm fitted by an approved installer to affect your insurance premium.

Why, just because they're for bikes, are these so big and expensive :?

Not being funny, but you can get units for cats and dogs that are the size of a box of matches for £99, plus £7.50/month subscription. As with the bike version, you can log into it at any time of day or night to see where it is, track it's movements over the last couple of days, etc., ......

Don't ask why we're looking into this .... :evil: :roll:

Old mobile phone concealed somewhere on your bike with a charger connected so it constant charges. Then if the worst happens go to http://www.traceamobile.co.uk/ pay the 25.99 for 15 searches and hunt your bike down again.

What great lateral thinking, I hope you're working for the Police or Mi5, not wasting your mind in some dead end job! :D
