Wow, I didn't realize that with the Digital Guard Dawg, you still needed to push a button on a remote to activate it. That's a draw back and kind of defeats the purpose of "keyless" as you pointed out. I read about it and watched videos and never pick up on that bit.
Thanks all, I'm going to revisit this situation.
I've had a Digital Guard Dawg on for a few years now, and actually you can run them in either mode -
A- you carry the remote fob in your pocket and the bike senses it as you approach. No button pressing. Flip the kill switch to run to get the ignition on.
B - you press the remote button to enable the ignition then the ignition comes on when you flip the kill switch to run.
That's a matter of personal preference but my point was about the expense. The eye watering price of the DGD (although they are very good) isn't really worth it (IMO), just for the convenience of not having to press a button (you still have to carry the fob), when you can have similar behaviour with a home made unit costing a fraction of that price. I bought my DGD when they were selling at half price and I still paid $230 for it. The home made ignitions come out at around $50 max, depending on where you get the bits to build it. The remote relay variant costs even less, around $7 for the remote unit plus the price of a couple of relays. That one doesn't take a tag though, its long range so you have to press the fob button. The RFID (Motogadet M-Lock and its home made version on here) variant that takes the tag has the most options on types of tag - credit card, glass bead, ring etc. It is also the only type which uses a passive tag, i.e it takes no batteries, and extra/replacement tags are widely available and extremely cheap.
When I said 'there is no such thing as keyless' I was referring to the fact that no matter which you choose, either DGD, M-Lock or any of the home brew ones on here, they cannot really be called keyless since they all require either a button fob or a tag and in a sense that is a key of sorts. To be truly keyless the ignition unit would have to work on biometrics such as a fingerprint reader. However, the DGD is the only one that can truly be called hands free. Because of its tag options, the RFID type comes very close to that, except that part of you - your hand or glove, becomes the key. I hope this information helps you to come to a choice.
