My alarm is disabled normally too. I have to turn it on with the remote. The bad news is that the "disable" does not stick. If the battery goes dead, or gets disconnected, the alarm will be back in "armed" mode. You won't be able to start the bike, even if you have the key. You'll need the fob, or the super secret PIN and the incredibly complex method to input it. I was 1000+ miles from home when I found this out and I didn't have the fob or the PIN or the way to input it.
Every LT owner should be aware of it. Lots are, but I think lots aren't.
