Anyone plan on installing any type of theft Deterent system with/or GPS tracking ?

I have heavily researched Scorpions SR-1900 kit http://ridescorpio.com/shop/scorpio-secure/ which includes a 2 way pager, built in accelerometer which detects movement or change of angle, and an optional perimeter sensor which detects movement around bike and gives a warning followed by full siren. It does not have any GPS and a few Internet reviews complain of excessive false alarms and drained batteries .

Scorpio also has the "Ride System" Scorpio | Motorcycle Alarms which also has the alarm plus a track able GPS system with another feature which records ride info to a cloud based app for later review. A feature I won't use and I hate buying things with features I won't use.

Lastly I've researched a pure GPS locator service "The Phantom" GPS Motorcycle Tracking - Motorcycle Alarm System - Motorcycle Security System
It is a 24 hr monitored GPS tracker whose simplicity I enjoy. Your bike moves, they contact you, you tell them you didn't move it, they call cops and continue tracking it until recovered. They also offer a crash detection feature. If bike deccelarates suddenly and lean angle shows it was laid down, monitoring system calls you to check on you to determine if you need medical....you don't answer, EMS sent to your GPS location automatically.
Anyone else have any systems in mind if at all?
Just curious what systems of any others are contemplating.

Canada doesn't have the phantom system. I just went with the Ducati Factory alarm, I don't really plan on leaving my bike unattended at all.

I had a BikeTrac fitted. It's impressive with immediate notifications by call/text/email if the bike is moved with the ignition off. It was recommended by my dealership over the Ducati alarm because the alarm isn't Thatcham approved for insurance discounts. If you check out the BikeTrac Facebook page, on most days there are updates of bikes being recovered through using the tracker. I like the thought of hopefully being able to catch a thief if they did ever manage to get the bike.

Biketrac looks like the UK exact equivalent of US based "Phantom". I like its features and simplicity.
My bike is garaged away from my home so a GPS tracker is looking like the way too go. Thanks for the Biketrac info. Gives me something to compare Phantom system with.
