    It uses an accessory bracket for 'fog light driver' suggesting it's sited forward somewhere if that helps?

    It's the optional Honda alarm (I think)

    Yes indeed. A controversial item on any cycle forum and of far less value to insurers than previously.
    In their defence I've fitted dozens upon dozens of many flavours in my time and never had a glitch from any of them.
    Also the case that I've seen and often rectified some dire installations and in my view this is mostly why they play up and have a poor reputation generally.
    As you would expect with the system Honda adopt and  call Averto the dedicated installation kits and bike specific looms are absolutely superb and quite unique.
    My Crosstourer arrives in a few days and I'm very excited about this indeed. All I need from Averto is the peace of mind that it will wake me at home or alert someone where I work that a thief is attacking it. I appreciate that it won't protect it from a group of p**ies lifting it into a van.

    So it's just for the noice?
    For the rest it's useless because the HISS already does the main thing why insurers want you to install one.
    My insurance company understands the HISS and only wants me to use an ART4 lock in addition when i park him on a public place.

    They're actually a Thatcham 1 security system but please-each to their own.                   
    I was enquiring about the location of Averto on the Crosstourer and NOTHING more thankyou.
    Your thoughts on motorcycle security systems simply do not interest me. It just so happens that for my personal requirements the audible response is all I require. The fact it immobilises 3 circuits,is presently kitted for many different Honda's by Honda for bikes that are already factory fitted with HISS should suggest they are not "useless" but obviously not for you.
    Alarm/immobilisers on a bike forum has always been like the 'which engine oil' one. Some people simply have to wade in  completely off topic. Probably I should've known better than to ask in the first place.

    My bike has the Averto system fitted.........would I be in line for a discount from my insurer if I mention that it's a Thatchem 1 rated system ??

    entirely sorry to get off topic here...I am actually curious to hear from owners across the pond...Is motorcycle insurance really that expensive over there to have any discount be meaningful?   I have my wife's CTX and my VFR, with a 100.00 deductible that goes down 20% per year til zero, for 400.00 bucks a year which is why I ask.
