Question GPS Tracker with motion alert?

I'm hopefully heading to Europe with my Africa Twin late this summer. I'd like to install a GPS tracker to keep an eye on the bike when its shipping, when I've parked it somewhere etc... Not looking for a blaring alarm, but I'd like to be notified if the bike is being rattled.

Lots of options on Amazon, but none have movement detectors (they'll tell you once your bike has been stolen and it driving down the road, but not while someone is tampering with it)

Any suggestions?

I use spot trace to tell me where it is if it's stolen and Abus Granit Detecto XPlus 8077 disc lock for immediate sound alarm which is really sensitive and stops alarming after 10 seconds if it's not moving anymore which is great for when it randomly goes off outside a hotel for example you don't have to run out there in your underwear and stop it.

I use https://biketrac.co.uk/#features Its a subscription monitoring service and will alert you via phone call, email and sms when a movement is detected. I have no complaints about this device and on the odd occasion when i have moved the bike from side stand to vertical without deactivating the unit, i have received a call and notifications within a minute or two from the control center. Excellent recovery rate too as it is supported by and works in conjunction with the police.

I'm sure this is a UK only set up. But I would have thought that a very similar device with subscription monitoring must be available for you guys in the US. Might be worth emailing them and see if they can provide any info for you.
