Venomous Motorcycles Sin Trac
Unfortunately, you’ve been chopped. Or should I say a biker’s pride and joy been stolen on its way to being “chopped.” The black market scooter supply is known to chop up stolen motorcycles and sell their parts. The parts, well sometimes they can be found all over which is the last place anyone would ever want their bike to end up because chances are, they will never see it again. Did you know thieves are most drawn to the brand, customization, and year of the motorcycle? The occurrence of theft by a manufacturer is highly correlated with each brands popularity – but a notable exception is Harley Davidson. Harley Davidson ranks in the top 5 with vintage HD’s being the most prized of all because of cost, looks, and the fact most thieves know there isn’t a stock GPS tracker onboard like in the hogs of today.
Vehicle thefts have been trending downward in the 25 years since they peaked at 1.7 million in 1991, falling 46 percent to 765,484 in 2016, according to the FBI. However, it was reported there was an uptick in the number of vehicles stolen in 2015 and 2016, up by 3.8 percent and 7.4 percent. According to a recent report, a motorcycle is stolen somewhere in the U.S. every 11 minutes. Of those, a total of 46,467 motorcycles were reported stolen in the U.S. in 2016, compared with 45,555 reported stolen in 2015 an increase of 2 percent.
A report released by the National Crime Insurance Bureau (NCIB) stated Phoenix ranked in the top 10 cities for motorcycle thefts in 2016. The facts and figures serve to all as a reminder for bikers to keep choose well-lit night-time parking and lock the bike at night in an enclosed garage.
The preferred method of motorcycle thieves is loading an unsecured bike into a minivan fast as possible and driving away, even in broad daylight. However, there have even been simple low-tech methods used like propping a motorcycle onto a couple of skateboards and simply rolling it away have been reported.
The average recovery rate according to Fox News in 2017 nationwide was 42 percent. Back in 2013 Consumer Reports reported the recovery rate was at 39 percent. Some experts believe the rise in recovery was due to owners installing GPS trackers and the fact newer models come today with such gadgets stock. Newer bikes are not stollen very often because crooks know they have tracking devices installed which is why older model Harleys are often chosen. Throw in the fact some thieves might think today’s biker ain't too hip with today’s tech and you’ve got yourself a major possible problem down the road. People owning a motorcycle know there’s more chance of it being stolen than a car. Motorcycles are light and lack anti-theft technology which makes them an easy target.
Venomous Motorcycles GPS Tracking
After a period of extensive research and development into most all the available GPS tracking systems from high to low-end cost and function, Venomous Motorcycles through the trial of various products has found and taken a product created by one company combined it with another adding in a little something of our own to form an advanced system ready to go masked on a need to know basis specifically for vintage Harley’s.
A Venomous Motorcycles anti-theft GPS tracking device can alert you of any movement to your Harley and can track its location within 50 feet. Therefore anyone can now travel safely with their motorcycle knowing it’s got something looking after it anywhere they may leave it. The crew at Venomous Motorcycles has already gone through all the necessary steps of researching, gathering, and putting together the right components to offer something unique for a unique group of people to help protect their thunder. The process took quite some time to narrow down in order to get something which worked well with what we were working with and could handle the vibration of all the thunder.
Out of all the devices we tested it came down to two devices. Scout and Sino Track. Both devices do the same job and work great, are waterproof, however, there is a substantial cost difference. The Sino Track device is under $35.00 + shipping and it’s $99.00 for the Scout. One device comes with a lifetime guarantee unless physically damaged (Scout), however, the additional price you pay may or may not be worth it. (If a device becomes damaged which is hard to do then at that time just replace it, no need to charge for something that has/hasn’t happened and if it does your still ahead if you have to buy another.)
Next Venomous Motorcycles was not only able to find the Software for the Sin Trac Device but were able to find and acquire a Mobile carrier service contract for the required SIM Card in order to operate the device at a lower $10.00 a month v. the Scout devices $14.99 a month. At the end of our research, we found both devices did basically the same thing but swayed toward the Sino Track because of the price and masking ability. $180.00 / year and $99.00 for the Scout device v. $120.00 / year and $50.00 for the Venomous/Sin Trac.
In addition to testing the GPS Trackers we also had to test out the mobile service provider plans to see which work best. Majority of GPS trackers now require cellular technology meaning that if you own a GPS device you will need a wireless plan to be able to track and navigate. They come in different forms. To our surprise again if you don’t know what you are doing you can buy the wrong SIM card waisting time and money really testing a person’s patients. Some have good coverage some do not just like a cell phone and none can guarantee tracking everywhere. Again a lot of time and research is required to find out which is best for the price.
After manning this project the venomous way testing everything out ourselves we have created the Venomous Motorcycles Sin Trac Package which includes one tracker with SIM set up ready to go. (Setting up a tracker can take hours if not longer if you are not familiar with the process. Having a unit come set up actually “tracked to your door” ready to go in the end is the way to go for we already know the process which in the end saves you all the hassle and time.)
While there is no guarantee a motorcycle isn’t going to be stolen and able to be recovered when up against professional thieves who may or may not locate and deactivate the device there are some additional steps that can be taken. A person can purchase and place a dummy device somewhere obvious while leaving the real hidden somewhere else.
Another example and something we offer exclusively right now only at Venomous Motorcycles is the fact the device can be masked to look like something else instead of being a GPS tracker. You can mask the Sino Track but not the Scout.
Of course, nobody can always guarantee a GPS tracker will always work if it can be found and disconnected which is why we recommend making it a little harder for thieves by being a little more cleaver. (We actually used some of the test devices which were really POS as our decoys.) In addition to having one of Venomous Motorcycles GPS Trackers the most effective anti-theft strategy should actually include several layers of security. Now that you know some of the facts which you always kinda always knew parking in a visible well-lit area, using a cover to keep the bike “out of sight, out of mind” and a chain of high quality steal looped through the frame to an immovable object like a telephone pole should help along with a good guard dog. Despite the reduction in vehicle thefts over the past two decades, industry observers caution thieves are constantly devising new and sophisticated means of stealing which is why owners also must stay informed and one step ahead.
Another feature is we also attempt to match the specific device serial numbers with the motorcycle itself through the VIN and the owner in case it ever gets stolen in which case all you have to do is contact us at which time we will not only provide the details but help you find your bike as fast as possible.
