I could of gotten the first vehicles license plate but initially didnt think much of it. When I observed the other two vehicles, the were at an angle and or distance that made it a bit difficult to get plates....besides I was more occupied thinking about different scenarios in my head incase I had to go out and lay out some bodies who were trying to steal my bike.

Im already looking into an security system which incorporates phone alerts and gps tracking....any recommendations??? Im looking at a scorpio or one called phantom tracking, anyone using either one of these?

You might win the case , but spend a load of money for defense & looking over your shoulder from then on out.
OP
you had the opportunity to take pictures of the vehicles ?
MAYBE you could have "stealthily" get the lic. plate number of the various vehicles too.

the police might also have been able to get their information, if you called them and they responded quickly enough to investigate the "suspicious behavior". Calling them could possible have helped with other missing bike investigations too, by providing a "lead" to possible thieves...

anyway glad you didnt get your bike stolen,
good job keeping an "eye" out!

Good looking out on your bike , most likely they will be back .
If push comes to shove , remember cover & concealment .
Sometime you only have seconds to react , keep up with the laws so that you will be in the right in it comes to that.

Sounds like you need a better place to park your bike. Even with an alarm and gps, they'd still pick up the bike a throw it in the back of a truck. Even that damage would be too much.

+1. Park inside. I bet you coworkers wouldn't mind?


No doubt, they were scoping/scouting and one breath away from trying to haul her away. Good looking out though. I would've done the same.


thug thieves. Burn.

if your going to spend the money on an alarm, i would say its better spent just buying full coverage or theft coverage at least. this way u can get money back if something happens. alarms on a bike imo are worthless. so is lojack. they will just steal and chop it up. an alarm that nobody pays attention to will help no one.

It all depends...

If its night time, and I see a group of guys trying to actually steal my bike as in they have tail gate down and are positioning themselves getting ready to lift, I would atleast yell "stop or I will shoot" and if they continue their shenanigans, then yes Im shooting to protect tangible property that otherwise would be difficult or impossible to recover.

Same situation but they drop bike and run then no I wouldnt shoot because I effectively deterred there actions and protected my property.

If same group of guys decided to drop bike and charge at me...im shooting! Becuase I dont know there level of training in fights and if they are willing to charge a man with a gun pointed at them then i will assume they are trained well enough to disarm me and possibly kill me. I would be ok with explaining this in court and although may cost me some $$$ defending myself i walk away with my life and a few less thieves in the world....

This is exactly why I decided to just step outside and let me be seen so there would be no doubt that someone is watching over the bike.

Thats just me...I cant speak for anyone else nor legally make any recommendations cuz im not an attorney

A dead man can't testify against you either.
