While I plan to allow you to keep the radio on for up to 48 hours at a time I don't think it makes a lot of sense to keep the radio on all the time. Therefore, I'd not use this to turn on the bike. I think it would be a fine idea to use it to power the starter motor though. I expect security through obscurity to be pretty good with this device though. Until OEMs install these at the factory I expect the last thing a crook would do is pull out an iphone to try to hot wire your bike. Ultimately, I think most bikes are just put on trucks and dealt with in the privacy chop shops. YMMV
