Cool !
« on: January 23, 2014, 10:04:20 PM »
Bought My Trumpet from Stratford Triumph on the 20th November.

Got a surprise package through the post yesterday from them. My receipt was in there, that took a while then but also there was a free Datatag, didn't know anything about it, didn't ask for it so I don't know why I've got it!   :046: :046: :046:

No matter I'll use it and maybe get a couple of quid off my insurance renewal next year.

Dave.

So is the Data Tag a standard issue to TTSE do you think?

It is permanent security marking of the bikes to aid recovery if stolen. A combination of paint markings, micro-dots and hidden transceivers across multiple components and parts.

The police can scan with a special handset and come up with an id which they can then check against their database.

Most UK insurance companies give significant discounts if you have it applied to your bike.

Thanks. Interesting. Wonder if we have a similar set up in the US.
