Looking out for fellow brothers at the track

With all the concern of untrustworthy people in our motorcycle community, rather it be on the street or at the track, we need to look out not only for ourselves but also our brother/sister motorcycle rider. I am not saying this to "call" anybody out, or of because the other thread that is blowing up. I say this because it has been a concern of mine for quit sometime now. We spend a lot of money on this hobby of ours and I don't know about you guys, but I work hard for my money. Its a shame of what some people will stoop to. I realize its only a small percentage of people in this community that give other a bad reputation. So lets hear some suggestions for at the track/ or at home that will minimize the temptation of others.

1. Keep all personal thing locked in your car out of sight (wallets/cell phone/computers/watches/anything that might be of some value when you are on the track)

2. Help police the paddocks with us. If everybody is looking out for each other it will decrease the chances of people trying to walk off with your stuff.
If I see somebody I have not seen before around somebody stuff I will walk over and asked them what they are doing, rather be wrong than somebody to have something taken from them.

3. On that note from #2....get to know the group of people next to you in the paddock. This does 2 things....1 is you get to make new friends and 2 is ya'll can look out for each other.

4. Bring a trained killer dog and tie him up around your stuff at the track....wait scratch that idea.

Guys its imperative that we look out for one another and try to keep the track or this hobby of ours as honest as possible.

Please feel free to add some other helpful hints on how to protect ourselves.
Don't say..."I keep my (insert valuable item) in the _____" This will only set you up for failure in the future, because some of the dishonest people might be reading this.

When I am at the track I will make sure to go around between classes and introduce myself to as many people as I can and keep a eye on everybody's things as best as possible.

See you guys at the track, be safe.

On a serious note, it is all about who you pit with. After being in the TD/race scene for a while, you get to meet very good persons. Per instance, whenever I am at the track with Candie and Bubby, the Camachos, Alonzo, I pit with them, why? Because I know them and they have earned my trust. It is implied that when I am at the track they watch my stuff and viceversa.

So choose your friends wisely.

Same with my SBN guys. It's good that we ride in different groups too. There's almost always someone in the pit.

This is a good Idea, I thought it was already an unwritten rule, but ...I guess just like laws, some common courtesy and morals just have to be spelled out. sad.

No , reminds me of Homer Simpson with Ned Flander's stuff.

COOL!!

You mean you actually have a freakin shark with a freakin lazerbeam attached to its freakin head????

On a more serious note,

I'm sure this has been brought up before, but it's probably not a good idea to post up all of the "stuff" you own. I've seen threads about "show pictures of your rides" or "pictures of your guns" or whatever toy the subject may be. Often these pictures end up with a license plate somewhere in the background. Use good common sense - it's kind of like publishing a menu for thieves. Guns especially. They are a high value target because they are valuable and regulated. These creeps don't even have to guess... they know right where to look. That, or have good insurance!

+1 on watching everyone's back. This society is so geared towards not offending anyone. Screw that. If something seems out of place - ask questions. If there is a reasonable explanation, there should be no offense given or taken.

Such a bummer that you can't walk away from your things without fear of losing your stuff. I guess i've been fortunate and have never lost anything while trackside and always seem to meet really cool new folks. I've always found the people at any CMRA or trackday event to be some of the best folks around , but it only takes one thug//lowlife to ruin it.
