Judging by how often the break up "theft rings" I'm guessing its well organized.....just not insanely profitable. Obviously profitable enough to keep doing, though.

i think many of us already know who they are so no names needed, they stopped posting on MH after a few other members called them out so now they post on the other site. One word of advice, just be very careful on who you invite home!

I know a couple like this (although they aren't motorcycle folks, so names are pointless). PITA.

I also know some pro-theifs (most are ex). Mostly cars. Chop shops make good money and would assume bikes would too. i mean if that's all they did was steal. I don't know any pro theifs here in Houston, but the ones I know made just shy of 100k a year if you were to put it in a figure.. Well that'd be 'til they got caught.. Not to mention they would blow it a quickly as they could get it. I don't know if there's enough bikes for someone to just steal bikes though.

last year they got caught selling somebody else's track credit to 3 different people, once the instructors found out they got called into the office to clarify the situation by the track organizer at which time they were informed that they were no longer welcomed to attend their track days for obvious reasons!

Frank, you should have put up a trap & hidden cameras....Camera nowadays are so small you can hid them in vases, picture frame etc.. catch 'em bastards red handed and hand them over to the cops.

I have no clue who these people are. Please PM me their names (and screenames) so I can keep an eye out for them. Thanks.

you are correct but at that time i didnt really see the need for all that cause i thought they were good friends, now i am a bit more careful of who i bring home. I am sure you know who i am referring to, they used to be very active in the motorcycle community and then suddenly dissapeared after i few of us (the victims) posted a few warning post on MH!

Just a thought. Always keep your personal information "personal". Just say you list the bikes you have. F4, Vrod, Z1000, BMWK1600, etc. Than you post that you are going for a ride and the rides normally take X amount of hours. What have you done? So Never Ever let anyone know exactly where you live unless you truly know them very well. My Opinion and Advice.
