The CX500 is an incredibly easy motorcycle to steal, as are most, due to one particular issue: in order for the key to be used, the key cylinder has to be accessible. If the key cylinder is accessible, it can be easily broken off and the wires accessed, jumped, and the ignition bypassed entirely.

I found the two wires responsible for turning power on and off to the bike and hooked them up to an RF wireless relay like so

This means I can hide all of the ignition wiring and the receiver under the frame spine of the bike where it would require significant disassembly to be accessed. Not perfect, but a deterrent and REALLY DAMN COOL.

Now I need to figure out this nastiness.
