    Moving to a place without a dedicated garage and will have to store the bike in an underground lot. Anyone have a recommendation for some kind of security measures? I'm pretty sure a determined person will be able to take whatever they want, but I'm thinking something would be better than nothing.

    Thanks!

    If you really want some peace of mind, get Lojack.

    Anything else will just be more of a hassle for you than for a professional thief. If they don't get it back to you within 24 hours, they'll refund what you paid them. Your insurance might lower your rates too.

    I got a scorpio i900 and a lojack.

    A lojack wont do anything for you untill its stolen. And a alarm wont do anything for you after its been stolen.

    thats why they came out with early warning lojack... which i have on my bike. you give them an email and phone number. they call, email, and text you (in whatever order you prefer them to contact you) with 15 minutes of your bike being moved without the keyfob being within 15 feet. they say 15 minutes, but every time ive moved my bike without the keyfob on me, ive heard from them within 3 minutes... usually in under 2 minutes though. its a constant monitoring system. its always being tracked, and all you have to do is call the police and tell them youre bike is gone, theyll already know where it is. regular lojack you have to call and THEN they activate the system.

    i have lojack on mine and i havne't had to use it yet and if you want to be cheap you can always get a xena disk alarm they have a ghetto alarm in them so if the bike is picked up staight or moved it sets off a 120 db alarm i think i got mine for 60 shipped off of ebay it works decent but i think it could stand to be a lil louder though
