I fitted a mini GPS tracker to my MT09.
I could not use it like the doorbell idea, EG: if somebody fooled with the bike I would not get notified but if they moved the bike past a set boundary it send me an alert.
It was small and easy to hide I wired it to the bikes battery to ensure it stayed charged.
Here in OZ I used a $15 Aldi 365 day sim card, I could call the bike and it would send me a Google maps link with the bikes location and speed if traveling.
It came in handy when my son dumped the bike on the lead up to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, I was able to find his exact location and plan my place to pull up with the car and trailer to rescue him and the bike.
There was another time it was less helpful, my son was to meet me a Rolex for a boys weekend, it was getting late and dark with a lot of kangaroos about, I called the bike, he was about 25ks away and traveling at about 168kph !, I called again, this time he was doing 178kph, the next few times I rang I could get no service.
I decided it was one of two things, 1; he had crashed & was laying in a ditch, 2; he had stopped at the local pub, it had poor mobile reception, I called the pub on the landline and spoke to my son.
Ripped into him about his dangerous stunt, I asked how come I lost reception after 178kph and his smart ass answer was it must stop working at 200kph dad !!!!!!!!!!!!
