they have super small homing devices that they put in dogs. It costs so little and lasts a really long time. Maybe we should start using that for bikes more often. It is sort of strange that we don't. Is there is reason why not?

I know there is a lo-jack for bikes, but the ones they put in dogs are even smaller, I believe, and relatively cheap.

just realized that I don't think the dog chip is a gps locator. It simply has the dogs info when they scan it. So much for that. I guess there is still the real lojack, but i'm sure it's pricey

actually... yes there are 2 things for dogs - Microchip ID Implant (it's RFID) and GPS collar for hunting dogs (http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/onthetrail/)

One could modify GPS collar as a Poor Man's LoJack if one really want to

When I was in logistics we used to track our drivers (we provided them with nextel cell phones) through nextel, when a driver would tell us he was stuck in traffic I would check the traffic cameras in that area and then his cell to find out he was parked in front of a strip club.

Maybe adding a second line of service to your cell phone and hard wiring it to the bike would be a good idea. Just remember to put it on silent because the one freaking time you need it to track a stolen bike is the one time you get a telemarketing call to the phone.

Any way to make the spot messenger automatically send updates? Or only by the deliberate pushing of a button? Since many people already buy them maybe they can pull double duty.

And I'm not one of those people who thinks grass is the root of all evil.

Then again I'm not the one frustrated by a refusal to haggle. Which, is such a typical NYC thing (at least for motos) that I won't even try to shop in NYC any more.
and that's fine....

i don't think of grass as the root of all evil, but i do see advertising your illicit drug of choice in an advertview as childish.

i'm not frustrated at all, if you buy the "we don't haggle, we just state the price to save you time" bull then you're the sucker.

price, freight, setup. if you pay all three, you're the idiot.

One man's childishness is another man's defiance. Surely you know about that. Mentions of speeding, wheelies, etc. on an equally accessible Internet forum, eh? Judge ye not.

A shop is entitled to charge what they please and it is their right to choose whether or not to accept lesser offers. NYC's moto shops are notorious for not being willing to haggle (among many, many other ugly traits), so I shop elsewhere and not only take advantage of lower prices, but better service and lower taxes as well. Who is the sucker in that case? Me, for saving money and obtaining superior service with virtually no real inconvenience? Or NYC's shop managers, for failing to move a piece of non-commodity product just because they wouldn't have met an overly optimistic per-item profit target?

or you can simply just get a GPS real-time tracking device... commonly used for monitoring teen drivers (....or stalking somebody)
