Bike theft

So I got back from the movies with my girl last night to discover my bike missing. I have had the thing for less than 3 weeks and someone has already stolen it. I called the police and they sent a deputy out to write up a report. As I was walking around outside wanting to kill someone, I noticed out of the corner of my eye something in the shadows. The thieves had pushed it around the block and tried to hot wire it, but failed miserably. I think they had left it there to come back with a truck later.

Just want to let you all know that this is going on in the Sagemont area by 45 South and Beltway 8. Hope they don't get anyone else.

Start locking the ignition if it wasn't. It will at least make it harder to push it away with the wheel turned.

Good thing you got it back though.

if you live in an apartment, go rent a storage, park your bike INSIDE your apartment.....or get theft coverage. cuz chances are your bike is next.

sorry to hear about your bike, but there are ways to help prevent theft. i'm sure you will do everything possible now that it's already happened to you.

Cover, alarm, and parked next to my front door are my theft deterrents. Had some guys try to roll my bike out from under my porch one night before I covered it, bought an alarm and so far so good.

the early response system from lo jack works very well...if your bike is moved with out the key in it...they will call and email you


i have my phone next to me every night set to the loudest ring volume possible...so far its worked for me, just moving the bike around the back yard a few feet they call

but the truth is...if they want your bike bad enough they are going to get it

That will be one of my first purchases on my next street bike.

I can never go anywhere with my bike out of sight for longer than 30min to an hr. I will keep getting up and checking on my bike. Everyone always said I was paranoid.... but I just know how easy it is for someone to take it if they wanted to.

At any hotels I always got bottom floor and parked the bike in the room and at the house it was always in the garage. Never outside overnight.... I wouldn't be able to get any sleep if I left it out...

No lo-jack yet, but I will have it. The ignition wires were cut so I couldn't turn it on. Insurance is covering everything though, so that's a relief.

Would that be cause for the insurance company to total the bike?
