I'm considering this thing which is affordable, weatherproof and designed for bikes.

Bike alarm and chain (or cable)....I would think would be effective. I have both and wheel clamp. Insurance is always good.

Chains are good for goldwings, but the good locks alone weigh over a kg. Alarmed disk locks are considered the biggest deterrent. But something like a gps tracker is nice if they do end up throwing it in a van.

I don't imagine it to be much as it's pretty much a GSM/GPS receiver merely accepting tiny amounts of data in the form of SMS. It gas an internal battery and can use the bike's battery. It's a bit of an any bit helps thing. If it's nicked you've got nothing to loose, only gain.

All SPOT devices need clear view of the sky, and this one is not any different. Will be difficult to find a discreet location on the bike.
In my opinion, unless the bike has a sentimental value, upgrading the insurance coverage would be the best bet.
