The area has been targeted more frequently for bike theft.

Four months ago I stopped two guys attempting to steal one of mine.

Forget the caliper locks etc(no mine didn't have one but cables were cut.)
Caught them mid process, they Velcro the front brake lever and pick the bike up by the front tire, roll it on the rear. Only problem slowing them down is they didn't realize this bike has GP shift... so they were attempting to carry the bike when lojack early warning went off.

Note to others: when they are stealing the bikes, enclosed trailer is down and already set up(as they run they'll need to lock it back up.) I recommend slashing 2-3 tires. They wont be carrying that many spares. You would get off with personal property damage at the most, not assault by firing at or towards them. The police response was 2 min after the call hung up (Woodlands area) which was purposely changed with the new allocation set up by the district. My recommendation is Smith&Wesson MP knife; practice on runflat tires weekly at work. A little bulky, but fits well on the side pocket w the clip. Lock & lockout, clip and spring assist opening w light trigger. I carry it with me when I ride even if out to bars etc.

Ultimately, Id recommend not leaving garage doors open w the bike visible, continue to use a cement anchor or cable lock to something when not readily used, don't mention where you live on public forums and don't allow pictures of your license plates(easily tracked to registered address)... unless you're in the business of entrapment of these azzhats.

Im glad you have your baby back! Too bad there's some damage to repair. I know the feeling all too well myself; had a busa stolen years ago. Best wishes and safe riding.

Nice. Glad karma caught up with them, and that you got your bike back, despite the "upgrades."

The first time I saw the OP title, I thought "who the would steal a spring out of a GSXR?" lol

He will be serving it concurrently to an older sentence that expires in 2019. I hate to speculate on release dates but without an Agg charge he really only needs to serve 25% before being eligible.

The other ugly mug posted above is Anthony Granados, another guy I'm very familiar with. Neither were involved in the motorcycle scene.

Well if you knew it was her junkie theres this s#@t called don't involve the police and take matters into your own hands.police don't do unless it literally falls in their hands believe that.I woulda interagated the b@&ch.theres ways of persuasion a thief u know is same as a thief you don't know.no remorse no feelings.just another piece a trash that shouldn't be in the streets. Too late for all that if you've involved police cause now there's a report and a reason for retaliation. I see thieves like rats just varmits you have to exterminate or else they keep coming back. Sorry for your loss.
