  1. (sorry for the double post, thought it might be better able to be seen here)

    I know there's a bunch on here, but I wanted to ask about this specific product:


    Has anyone tried one of these motoguards (I did search first so no baw'ing, only one mention of it with no review or opinion on it)? It seems to be very feature rich, yet only ~$100 so i'm quite suspicious of the value. It does say on the officialish site (http://www.motoguardalarm.com/index.php) that the immobiliser uses the remote to operate, and that the remote only has an open air range of 80m, so i'm thinking that if it's that reliant on a short-range remote it's probably actually pretty shit. I work at Crown Casino, surrounded by a trillion tonnes of concrete and I quite simply cannot go to the bike to check on it every 10 minutes. So I really need a fairly self-contained alarm/immobiliser/what-have-you that doesn't require constant input. Price isn't really an issue provided it's not a gajillion dollars, but obviously i'd like good value for money.

    P.S. For those who resent nooblets wanting free advice and not introducing themselves, i'll be posting a first bike/intro thread on the weekend when i can finally properly join the community
  2. never mind (not that anyone was replying :p), when I went into the store to pay for my new bike, they'd just got in some motorader products, so i bought an alarm/immobiliser and a tracker for $500 or so all up. Gonna purchase a disc lock when i go in again next week
