I have been riding for about 60 years (yes, I'm that old) I'll be 72 in March. I have never had an alarm on a bike of mine.
My Son and a couple of his friends have them. Does anyone think they are necessary? Also, I've already got loud pipes (SAVES LIVES), What does anyone think about adding a loud horn (train/semi.) ?

You all have a great day.

I have a Wolo. So much better and louder than stock horn. Some use Stebel. Bike is protected by Sig Sauer. I have HK3" Long Straights w/ 4-1/2" SmartzBaffles inside the originals, dropped the tone maybe 10% w/o going deaf. I also have all lights upgraded to LED (VTX Daymaker, etc. Quake Rogue road lights for aux. I've got you by 4 months.

One size does not fit all for bike alarm needs. It all depends on where you ride, where you park, where you leave the bike unattended, etc. I live in VERY low crime areas, park at summer and winter homes inside a garage, leave the bike unattended a lot in parking lots but in very safe areas, and have never had the slightest incident. I even have a highly desirable back rest that can be lifted right out of the bracket and this has never disappeared.
