Can't relate to your troubles guys...
The RedAlert unit already inhabited my '92 ST and moved onto the '00 model... never gave me any trouble though...

Also that Averto tugged into the '94 bike fulfills its duties flawlessly, I've however deprogrammed the [auto arm], only the de-mobilizer activates after 40 seconds. So even if someone manages to nick the key from me, all he sees is a blinking 'no can do' LED... no code, no fun :P

I sense that quality/care of installation/connections is factor on reliability...

I have been a member of this board and another couple of boards and I really struggle to remember a story of a Pan being stolen.

My alarm on my last 1300 worked perfect. It was a Datatool. But is was a pain to have because it was an alarm. Honda invented HISS what's wrong with that as your defence.

When I rung the garage about my latest Pan one of the questions I asked him was did it have an alarm. If it had then I wasn't having it.

Same as Pete, got for 1100 insurance and the datAtool worked great and only killed battery if left way too long (optimate £ sorted). So glad 1300 came without one :-). Now though, doesn't appear to affect insurance.

I remember a while ago, it may have been from a member on here while on a previous site, telling about someone had tried to take their bike while parked outside. It had been left a few yards along the street resting, partially into, a hedge.
Whoever had tried to steal it must have realised, very quickly, how heavy it was and decided not to get a hernia taking it any further. :D

I always said that anyone would have been welcome to steal mine, as long as they videod themselves trying to lift it into a van and left the video so we could have had a good laugh. ;)

I remember a story on the Dutch Pan board (when I still visited there so years ago). One of the members said that during a ride-out they halted for coffee on the terrace of a café. He had chained his Pan to another Pan across the square.

There stopped a truck with trailer in front of where they had parked and the driver came out to ask in broken English for directions. Suddenly their alarms went off and they ran. It turned out that an accomplice was in the trailer, hauling the two Pans inside with a built-in crane. That is how brazen these thieves are, in full daylight and in view of everyone.

This guy who weighed like 250 kg got hold of the driver and simply sat on him till the police arrived. Then HE got arrested, for excessive violence or something. They had to prove that the bikes were theirs, too, before they could get them back. The thieves walked away.

This world is nuts.

I don't have them over issues on 'property offense' (STs don't fit the prey scheme of bike thieves here, and handling those +300kg is as well not very easy...), I mainly have them onboard as indicator for 'reckless parking' by just another brain dead cager...
And in this the kits proved valuable more then once... and them morons are always quite surprised over the 5 foot something bloke popping out of nowhere slamming both palms on their hood/bonnet signaling 'no! you go NOWHERE now without revealing your insurance policy and driver identification first...' with a grim face...
Plus that the wail also attracts a number of eye witnesses on the scene... proves as well quite helpful in preventing an escape of the 'offenders'...

Next target group are those numberless careless parents raising their breed the 'anti-authoritarian' way and are totally convinced that every unattended motorcycle on the streets serves nothing else as being coin-ride for their litter... Image

Sometimes I'd really would like to fence in my property with some razor wire... or at least an electric cattle fence...

Methinks that bad behavior isn't to be limited by borders or Schengen Agreements... human stupidity and egocentric spreads like a disease...
