Choosing A Motorcycle Alarm System For Your Chopper
If you are not familiar a motorcycle alarm, imagine this- you take a nice
Sunday cruise with your buddies on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. You take a lunch
break at a roadside diner. When you return to the lot, you only see three bikes.
There were four of you. Your chopper has been stolen. Your hard earned money
that went into that bike is now left for someone else to enjoy, free of charge.
It flat out sucks (for lack of a better word) that people are not as honest
as we'd like them to be. Things like this really do happen. Hopefully, if your
bike was insured you will be able to recover some of the cost, or better yet,
the culprit will get caught.
A motorcycle alarm could have prevented this. Think about how we lock
our bikes up at home- in a garage or shed. Or, if just in the drive, most likely
the house will have motion lights and maybe an alarm system. But, if your ride
often, is your bike protected when you are away from home? If not, you may want
to consider looking into installing a motorcycle alarm system on your pride
There are several companies that offer alarm systems. But one we'd like to
highlight is the Scorpio SR-i500 by Aritronix.
The Scorpio SR-i500 motorcycle alarm system is a two-way radio security
system designed specifically for motorcycles. The radio system features
a high frequency RF technology that makes it possible to send and receive data
on a mini-handheld receiver from over a ½ mile away. So, if you are too
far to hear the siren go off, you will be signaled that someone is tampering
with your ride by either a sound-off or vibration from the receiver.
In addition, this motorcycle alarm system also has a display, which shows
easy-to-read icons to let you know the something is going on. In fact, it
can tell you specifically what happened, whether it was bumped, titled or
if the ignition was tampered with.
The display also has a clock, which can timestamp events. The receiver also
has three buttons that can lock, unlock or sound the siren. It can fit
easily on a key ring, too. When you order this kit, everything you need to install
it comes along: the receiver, waterproof alarm, a wire kit and hardware. There
is also OEM plug-in kits available for various manufactures including Harley
This Scorpio SR-i500 motorcycle alarm system is easy to install, and well
worth the time- considering what could happen without the alarm. Whether it
is the Scorpio SR-i500 or another model, a motorcycle alarm system is an accessory
every proud chopper owner should own...
