    Last time I checked, the units for motorcycles were still in development. I'm not even sure if they will ever produce one for bikes. I believe they were having problems with making it small enough to hide on a bike.

    It probly wouldn't be hard to install on a Goldwing, but putting one on a 600 would be pretty difficult.
    Don't Think the Police Help?

          I'm going to make one for my car shortly. Then when I get a bike, one is going on that too. What sort of cellular network do you guys run over there.. we have GSM here. The most expensive part is the GSM module.. I can get the GPS modules cheap, but the GSM modules run into a couple hundred each.

            I have a site bookmarked at home that does a GPS locater / Cell phone caller in the bike. It seems pretty cool and it was reasonably priced. (like $400.00)

            If you do a search on alarms it should come up also.

              It had a few other nifty features too. Like max speed for a trip / invisible fence / etc. Web site accessable tracking etc. It was designed for fleet vehicles from what I could tell, but was definitely small enough to fit in a bike.

                    Q - Can the police track the vehicle for me?

                    A - Only if the local police department agrees to track it for you. You are completely responsible for the tracking of any stolen vehicle.

                      Well, from a guy who has had a bike stolen in the middle of the night, I found the police's tracking abilities severely lacking to begin with...

                        The other question I have is that GPS signals are fairly week to begin with. My GPS Garmin III has to have a clear view of the sky to pick up a signal. Heavy tree cover, being in a garage, among other things have caused it to loose it signals. This tracking device is going to be hidden on the bike, so thats atleast one thing blocking the signal, and then if the bike is put in a van, garage, or somewhere else, how can you be certain the signal is going to get out?

                          Alright, this is how it basically works as far as differences:

                          OnStar only works out in the open. They put your car in a garage, etc, signal is too weak. The directionals you get from the dispatchers is usually off by about a half mile or so!

                          Lojack works where ever it is, garages, underground, etc. and you don't have to rely on someone telling you where it is for directionals, you track it yourself (police anyway).

                          We have had a lot better luck with Lojack then OnStar. Only thing is not all P.D.'s have Lojack receivers, yet. Ours does.
                          I've crashed both, and hurt myself worse on bicycles then I have on motorcyles!

                            OK I was planning on making one with a GPS receiver and having it tell me the last good signal it got. There are also new receivers these days, that have accelerometers in them. When they can't get a signal, they use the accelerometers to estimate how far they have gone from their last good GPS point. This is how your BMW still moves along the map when you are in a tunnel

                              Keep in mind... most bikes that are stolen are in the process of being stripped within a few minutes of the steal, while they're in the vehicle that is getting them out of the area.

                              Because of this, most tracking devices will be found and discarded long before they're of any use for finding whats left of the bike.

                              I'd spend my money elsewhere.
