I guess you've already found your alarm, but there is one that hasn't been mentioned. The Cyclone 866F is a pretty solid unit...so long as it doesn't get wet.
1. Tilt sensor (omnidirectional)
2. Shock sensor (dual stage)
4. AMAZING backup battery (as in 2 hour full stage siren kind of amazing)
5. Closed loop trigger
6. Optional pager system
7. Fully digital sensors (won't wear over time due to vibration)
I had this sucker all wired up to my wife's bike and ready to get it in mine as well. Unfortunately, it rained like mad for a few days and all of the water that made it under the seat pooled on the alarm (and nowhere else, I might add). That messed with the tilt sensor at first and kept setting it off, so I eventually disabled that one and ran without it. Then it got at the starter-immobilizer, and I couldn't even start the bike (since it thought it was being stolen), and eventually the siren itself. Ripped the thing out the next day.
Horror story aside, it worked VERY well all the way until it got wet, and on the Strom I don't think I'd have that problem. The shock sensor in particular was great. I would flick the exhaust pipe (Ninja 500) and get warning chirps. Any more than that and you had better cover your ears. 120 dB less than a foot away HURTS!
Super small (less than the size of 2 packs of cigarettes), easy installation (if you know your bike's wiring).
