The only security on US spec GL1800's is lockable forks, saddlebags and trunk. It doesn't have the HISS (Honda Integrated Security System) like the Canadian & European versions.

Oh Yeah ... and helmet locks.

Go the the freymoto website. They have a interesting alarm.

you could even take it a step further and use a car alarm, and install the remote start feature:

Remote start on a motorcycle. Why do I just see that as a bad idea? :)

I envision pressing the start button on your remote from the warmth and comfort of your home, and immediately afterward seeing your motorcycle riding itself down the street past your window.

You know, I don't know why you would see this as a bad idea...unless you failed to view the link or are unfamiliar with how these systems work...the idea you envision would never happen unless you:

1) incorrectly installed the system, allowing the system to remote start the vehicle without being in neutral, or
2) left keys in the bike's ignition allowing someone to get on it and ride it past your window

Fact is, with the 1800, a few enterprising people have seen the remote start as an attractive thing, as it allows the bike to warm up to full temp, and the heated grips and seat can get a little warmed up before a ride out...where I live the heated stuff isn't as important, but the operating temp may be...some 1800s act a little funny halfway between cold and warmed up in the way of throttle response...The guy who did it in the link above is a car audio installer, so he used what he had, which was pretty much everything...

If installed properly, the system will only start the bike in neutral, and will not let the bike go anywhere until a key is inserted into the ignition---if you touch the brake handle with no key in the ignition, the bike shuts off. I have one of these on my truck, but I haven't found the time to wire one into my wing---I may do this in the future though, as the install doesn't look that difficult, even as a retrofit of a car alarm to a mc...

Ihave the remote start for my bike with built in immobiliser and tilt /tamper sensor ,, it wont let you ride away unless key is in ,Its more of a novelty than anything else, its funny when you are sat away and people are looking at the bike when it starts up on its own thier faces are a picture ,Mally

I was kidding - that's why I used the smiley face. :) I do know how they work, and I've actually installed two (maybe three - I forget) of them before. Of course it shouldn't work without the bike being in neutral. That said, I'd still be a bit leery of putting them on my bike - I like being next to my bike when it's starting up, to detect any anomalies or problems that might be occurring.

won't argue with you there---I wouldn't kick one off unless I was close enough to hear it crank.

I've noticed with my 1800, if the bike is only halfway warmed up, the ecm toggles between the cold fuel map and the warm fuel map, and it's quite annoying, and possibly dangerous if you don't know about it (try doing a tight turn and have the engine rpms bottom out on you with no change in throttle position...)

on a carb bike, you'd still have to pull the choke/enricher, so it kinda defeats any possible benefit of a remote start from cold in that scenario...although I have seen people with them on those bikes, anything to get attention I guess...
