:confused: Im supprised this topic has not been covered prior to this so im sorry if it has.....(i tried a search)

Im considering having an alarm fitted to me 2007 Transalp. I've no idea where to start, should i get one / should i waste my cash / are they worth it ?

Any advice would help, (are datatool best)

Do i only need a alarm cos i got the standard HISS ?

I personally wouldn't bother wasting the money thery're a pain when they get old, they don't stop it getting nicked most of the time nobody even looks when a siren goes off, just assume it hasn't been armed properly. Years ago i had a bandit and the wind alone would set that off then there's rain and water getting on the electrics which activated the immobiliser, while riding( it was a datatool alarm). If your worried about getting it pinched wire a hidden switch into the ignition system. Stick with the factory fit kit it's designed to work with that specific model as are the ultrasonics ets forget any retrofit rubbish. But thats only my personal opinion

Im doing some touring 2up and staying in some areas where the bike will be parked on public roads away from the hostels etc...im just scared it'll go and spoil the rest of the holiday.

An angry PIT BULL is the best ! :D
Personally I'd suggest you a mechanic one such as a strong chain so you can tie two bikes together or yours with a post, I don't believe much in electronic alarms.

I knew someone who was so fed up with his car being stolen, he connected a spark plug to the fuel tank on a hidden switch, he said if they want my car it will take them where they deserve to go.
