Default Has anyone

had or know anyone who has, had any experience or knowledge of the scorpion alarms that you flick (like a key fob) thingy and it sets it. you take the key fob with you and if anyone touches ya bike, the fob throbs in your pocket or rings or something?

trouble is by the time you've run back to where ys parked ya bike, some fecker is away with it up the road.

anyway if anyone has any info on it, let me know, please.

Most professional bike thieves can disable an alarm in seconds, whatever type ypu have and a lot of the chavs who just want a ride can do the same, any alarm system will only stop a few wally's I've got a chinese alarm that allows you to start your bike while you are walking up to it and you can disable the bike if someone tries to ride it away, but if you are at a rally and someone has the same cheap alarm I can see all sorts of problems...John

feck off padlock and chain or a bright yellow abus granite lock usually deters most feckwits

alarms like mentioned are usually ignored

also a bike cover will deter most joyriders as there too fecking lazy to look underneath

I hate alarms, worse than useless and I can bypass most, visible BIG chain and padlock is second best, first is a secure garage.

and hows the alarm going to help, most 'van jackers' place a large heavy blanket over the bike to deaden the sound/hide the bike/stop them scratching it.
the only ones I find interesting are the silent pager ones, but they are not going to help if you the other side of the an office building when it pages you.
Most people ignore alarms going off, go to Boxhill on any (sunny) sunday and watch how much notice is taken of riders fiddling with their bikes cos the alarm is going off. And bloody immobillisers... Datatool ones especially I have lost count of the number of mates ones I have had to bypass to get them home.

so really the only answer is a double barrel - preferably an over and under cos they make more mess of human bodies, it being an upright.

I never got used to the under and over, couldn't hit a barn door, funny really because I was quite handy with my side by side, it is probably because the side by side is what I was brought up with... John

Cust brought a cheapy hawk alarm in to be fitted the other day, absolute bollocks....

either the bike wouldnt start or "fully imobilized" would start.. tech help went dead...dee daa dum.. number unavailable... when I eventully found a working number some paki suggested disconnecting the coil (RG 125 I was imobizing the coil )... well it will imobilize it!!!

absolute ****e.

in the owners defence, the bike was using a ground anchor and he lived in a block of flats...just wanted audio warning... thing is, you could have hit it with a sledge and the sensor wouldn't have picked it up
