Best anti theft deterent for showbike vtx1800r

So like a dumbass i sold my 02 1800c back in 2015. Since then i had an 02 vulcan 1500 classic but it was not the same. Now i am buying a custom painted and powder coated 03 1800R with 10k miles and i want the best security possible. Already got the insurance ready.

no such thing.

if someone wants it Bad.. they will get it... bike/car/etc.

I lost 2 great cars ... different times...

many delays to prevent theft.. but they still got it after several tries.

a bike is easier.. lift into truck or trailer and its Gone.. even with locked wheels.


If you truly fear it will be stolen. do not buy it...

3 guys can.. I know this as FACT.

I know not helpful...

I have been riding for 49 years.. and worked for a Honda cycle Dealership for 20 years..

if you place a tracker on the bike.. and they find the tracker. they will burn the bike down.

So just not worry about a security device? LoJack is out of business as far as i know. Oxford boss makes a movement alarm brake disc lock. Wont be leaving the bike in deserted locations

The alarm disk lock works really well. My in-laws bought it for me and it works as advertised. More than anything you want the thing to make a hell of a racket once the bike is disturbed. My Harley has built in security, but another good measure is to get a system that has a flashing LED to let anyone looking that, yeah, it's alarmed!

Like Chuck said, if they want it bad enough, it's already gone, but if you make getting it "messy" then it's likely they will move on top easier pickins. If, for instance, it's at the pub and you want it protected, the disk lock is good because the noise will surprise them and they'll move on. Nothing says that they won't come back with a plan though. An actual security system (blinking LED and all) leaves enough mystery as they (the thieves) are not entirely sure what they may be in for.

Looking here;

The Scorpio SRX900 (I'm sorry I have never tried this one myself) looks to be a good fit and they have a factory connector kit for it. Read reviews and then go to google and look for more reviews. Like my Harley system it looks to have a remote transceiver that (I have not verified this with the Scorpio) appears to have the capability to alert you from a distance. So if you are in your Hotel room, you will still know if someone is messing with the goods.

If I were to be looking, this is what I'd be looking for.

The best security is a locked garage. And, sorry to say, I have seen that fail. But, it's about the best you can do. Aside from that, Insure it for it is worth to YOU! Not replacement value. A bit more expensive (not killer) but, again there is little else to do. I have a separate rider on mine (due to plating, painting, and polishing) that will soon be worth more than the bikes current "value". I pay the premium, lock the garage, and go on with life. It would sure ruin my day if it were stolen but, it would not be the end of the world. Not a loved one, just a machine.
