EX Motorcycle Thief and chop-shop operator answering questions.

There is a EX motorcycle thief and chop-shop operator doing an AMA on reddit right now. Answering questions about which motorcycles he would go for, where he would look for them, what kind and how he would steal them and other things.

One of the more interesting replies from him:

Quote:
EDIT - I should add, LOTS of wrecked bikes go through auction with clean titles and there is no real established "carfax" for bikes. MANY used bikes at local dealers are rebuilt wrecks. In my experience, a surprising amount of the nations largest used bike dealers dabble in stolen motorcycles. Really took the wind out of my sails when I found out some of the big guys I aspired to be were just larger operations of the same illegal bullshit I was doing.
That is really something to think about.

4) Personally, if it's rashed up, looks cosmetically rough, but mechanically sound. Say grips are worn, been dropped on both sides, but the chain is clean and well-adjusted, tires worn hard on the edges, has any signs of safety-wiring for the track etc. It's lack of value isn't what I'm looking it. It would remind me of myself once upon a time. I think that's probably all he's got, his whole world, it's not pretty, but he rides the out of it. He gets a pass.
I might get a pass lol

If he really wanted to help and may have already done but haven't read anything saying he has is give up all the shops that he knows are buying stolen bikes and the people that he was buying from until then i don't see him really being sorry and wanting to do the right thing.

My favorite quote

Quote:
These guys can remove alarms, restraints, tracking systems, and hot wire bikes, but people think they can't bypass a security gate 400 other people in your building all have access to? Oh that's right, the security guard, Olawale, fresh from Nigeria will take care of it. You ever even bother to make small talk with Olawale? The building management pays Olawale and he's got kids to feed. If someone chats with him, gives him a calling card to call back home, a prepaid cell, and $100 for every bike they pull out of that building where do you think his loyalties lie?

I hope that doesn't sound like bragging. I hate it when I'm trying to tell people their parking garage is the number one theft target and they are trying to convince me how wrong I am. You lease a 3 series BMW and live in a trendy loft, you know everything, I am so sorry! I just want to strangle strangle strangle when I hear those guys.
