Possible cheap GPS Tracker and alarm for motorcycle

This is not my project, but I have been backing projects on Kickstarter for some time. I found one tonight that I am actually going to use on my Street Triple. It has real time GPS tracking and you can put an electronic fence around it to alert you if it goes outside. It includes 2 years of tracking, which other solutions are much more expensive that I have looked at.

It is actually designed for child safety and pets, but I like the idea of a waterproof GPS tracker with 2 years of service I can hide on my bike and actually transfer if needed. No power drain on the bike either.

Maybe there are better solutions, but if it doesn't work I am sure I could find another use for it.

FYI for forum members to take a look. Not my project, but think it may fit what I am looking for in a small cheap package. I wanted to pass it on as initial backers have a better price break.

Apologies if this is the wrong section.

Take a look at the r-Link alarm system from Scorpio. They have a similar product so you might want to see what you can improve from their unit.

I agree on the Scorpio Alarm. My idea was to get an i900 from them and just add this to the bike when parking not in view or not garaged. An option to turn on or add when needed.

This tracker has 2 years of coverage for GPS tracking, although this is a work in progress and not even funded yet. They say a low monthly fee after 2 years, but "low" isn't a stated amount.

I found another one people might be interested in. Technically it's for bicycles, but I don't see any reason why it couldn't be fitted to a motorcycle. It seems like it has a pretty clean app and a neat track-mapping feature. This is also not my project. Just trying to open up options.

They have a "Hacker Pack" that includes wire harness for 12v system. Only 1 year of data service vs 2 on the other.

Deciding factor for me will be monthly service after "free period" and the App options.

Good find and researching it further now.

In addition to the geo-fence and other functions that ordinary car trackers have, it also has SOS function.
