I'm not looking for those that are carrying the preverbal S&W or any other firearm or junkyard dog.

Does anyone have a motorcycle security system on your GL1800 that plugs into the stock system without any wire splicing?

Fred H. recommends the G-Force unit. Here is the link:
http://www.armedguard.com/shop/index.php?shop=1&cat=7

It has a wiring harness for the GL-1800 so it should be an easy install. Fred H. has some additions he made so that the fairing pockets are also wired into the alarm. You can see those mods on his videos

or web page.

Here is another site that lists several alarms.

That should get you off to a good start.

I wanted one that did more than alarm so I built my own (hey, this kind of work is how I feed my family). Besides having a motion sensitive alarm, it has a DVM and a service log. It has plenty of I/O and tons of code space for expansion but I can't think of anything else I need it to do. If I lived in a colder climate, I guess I could incorporate a controller function for heated clothes.

I installed the Gorilla 7007 (I think that's the number). It is universal- works on any bike. No splicing- just hooks up to the battery. Rated highly for the price. Cost less than $90. Does the trick!

You can search the reviews on it here and @ goldwingcountry.com. I'm pretty sure I bought it from HDL. That's a safe statement 99.9% of the time.

My buddy liked it so much he bought one for his Suzuki- although I don't know why. :lol:

The G Force is a plug and play installation. I did some of my own creative work to install switches on all the glove box doors, but if all you want is the basic alarm, it is indeed plug and play.

You can read my full review of it here:

Overnight stays I use a front brake disc lock with bright orange cable as a reminder to take off and tie around clutch lever. It is small and fits in passanger glove box. And a cover over the bike. No electronics.

I am sure the above Fred H suggestion is better but this costs $25 and a cover 40-120$. I think the wing is one of the least stolen bikes.

I try to remember to take the key with me. Do people really steal goldwings? Seriously?
Yup

2003 Honda GL1800
StockNumber: CT06-1224
Closed: 11/28/2006 At Noon
Description: 2003 Honda GL1800. This bike is a theft recovery and has little damage to the left mirror, front fender, right front fairing and right mirror. It is missing the front fairing parts, windshield, all covers for the saddlebags and trunk, side covers under the seats, lower front fairing and some small parts here and there. The tires are good on it. There are no keys so we cannot get the mileage or see if it runs but the engine looks okay. This bike is otherwise in pretty decent shape and has a salvage title. Bids taken until 11-28-2006.

Overnight I just put mine in reverse and shut her down. She ain't going nowhere unless they pick it up and take it. I don't even lock the handlebars.

I have the Scorpio Alarm system. I did the install on my 2006 TiWing and it took me about 3 hours. I had 1 questions, called tech support, got right through and he told me which connector to plug into. The phone call lasted about 3 minutes. They make them right here in Phoenix. My model has the alarm remote with LCD screen. I didn't get the perimeter sensor.

Fed,
This may not be considered wire splicing but it's the next thing to it.

That is the auxiliary wire connection to monitor the trunk and saddlebag open circuits. It is an optional connection and the alarm will work fine if you don't connect it, it just won't monitor the saddlebag and trunk closed switches. It also is not a big deal to connect, and they provide you the connector to tap right onto the wire.

I asked this question in another group a couple of years back when my wife and I were taking a trip. The general consensus was that gold wing thefts are rare. In fact a few of them told me that the theft deterant that their harley riding friends used was a gold wing bike cover. (serious) :)

It's not near as easy to steal an 800lb gold wing as it is a 300lb sport bike.

Lock it and take the accesories with ya! Not sure if I would bother again, to put on an alarm system, pretty limited in reality! Might keep kids off of it.
