Sweet Jesus dude, what is up your ass? The dude asked what security option is best, and you seem to be the only one with a problem from everyone's opinion.
I like the 1100, it works best for me. I like the gps feature, why? Because its a fucking gps. Thats why. having a trip recorder is a good reference point for multiple things. Why you gotta hate on my different 2cents than yours? And I didn't buy it for $500+, I got it for $375 shipped. How much did you pay for your fucking 900? Guess what..i could care less. If it works, it works. The i1100 replaced the i900 for best/most popular security system when It came out, because of the added gps alone.
And bling...for real?
Yea, I bought it cuz it looks/sounds SO sexy on the bike..i get compliments all time about how it really makes the bike show worthy.
"Do or Do not, There is no Try"
He asked what's the best option and I gave him a logical reason as to why the i900+insurance is a great option and how the i1100 is excessive. You could relax a bit and actually give a reason why the added cost of a monthly data plan for your ubber gps alarm is warranted. I haven't heard one yet. Back on topic.
Yeah, you can throw on proximity/ignition disable. The proximity sensor has various sensitivity levels that can be adjusted. I can be quite sensitive to the point of going off by just being a foot or two near the bike.
On GPS, if you have the alarm in audible mode, the thieves will know an alarm is in your bike and rip it out of the bike. So, there is no real point. The alarm is to alert people bring attention and the keyfob you have, if in range, will fire letting you know to get to your bike.
Beyond that, you really shouldn't concern yourself w/ further bells and whistles. If they make off w/ your moto w/ GPS, I doubt you'll want it back after its been mangled ..Highly unlikely the thieves wont have ripped it out and left it somewhere.
Think it through and do whatever you think is best... Might save yourself a buck or two.
