Can anybody tell me what type of alarm if any can be installed on the Burgman? I know, I live in NY and crime is supposed to be down...but, better safe than sorry. I kind of want to enjoy my Burgman till I'm ready to move on, not when someone decides they want to take it from me. I am interested in an alarm that has some kind of remote shut off so if someone does try to take the bike from me I can send some kind of signal for it to shut off at a safe distance. Any help would be greatly appreciated, also I am interested in the leather hump cover made for the 650, is there anyone who has designed one for the 400? Thanks...Harry

Take a bucket of water out of the ocean and you can say the ocean is down also. :)
Any alarm made for any bike can be install on your burgman. If your good at that sort of work, do a search on the net "Motorcycle alarms" should get you plenty , if you are not a do-it-your-self-er then check your local bike store- Not sure about the hump bag, but I think someone here is selling good ones, try a search here on burgman.

Are alarms effective at preventing motor cycle theft?

Most people over here just ignore them as they seem to go off if a butterly flaps its wings in South America.

The determined and organised thief will have your bike away - no matter what you do.

Visual deterrence measures, the standard key lock thingamig and maybe an immobiliser probably most effective together with secure under cover garaging.

There is a service where you can track your mobile phone for a fee (small) - I need to research that because it may be worth locking a cheap phone in the trunk. I will post back later if I turn that up. :)

I don't know if anyone here saw the segment on the Speed channel last night about motorcycle theft. A professional thief talked about how easy it is to steal a bike, regardless of the lock used. He said that bikes most targeted to steal are sport bikes. His advice: keep your bike in your garage. Breaking into a home to steal a bike isn't worth it.

When out and about, anything that will discourage joy riders should work. Bottom line: if a pro wants your bike, it is gone!

Sweetheart has that tracking service for my oldest. She is a handful, just like I was, and I love her DEARLY.

Edit: Sorry for the off topic post.

Alarms, in my opinion, are there to keep honest people honest. They won't stop some asshat hell bent on jacking your ride from jacking it.
