CHL license applications doubled this year in Harris County. Those mofos are going to be getting shot at more and more when trying to steal at a residence. knight

For everyone of you there are 10 that either don't see their bike ever again, or get back a frame with a transmitter.

looking for a trackbike!!








Steering locks don't work-Ive seen a youtube vid where a guy sat on the bike, put his foot on the bar and kicked, walla the steering lock was gone.

Disc locks dont work- Other vids show that a bike can be PICKED UP and put into a van/truck in less than 15 seconds
http://video.google.com/videosearch?...N&tab=wv&um=1#

Cables and chains dont work-http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...t+cutters&aq=f

My theft protection? Full coverage and parking my bike inside my apartment

perhaps you should consult patrick and ask about the true statistics of lo jack. like i said, mine was stolen TWICE, returned both times, in one piece. looks like the odds are in your favor if you have the system vs not having it.

Must I go on? I really don't care what statistics Patrck has. He is a good guy, and don't hate him for it, but 90% of the time you can make at least 50% of any statistics say anything you want.

Real world = you MAY get your bike back, and if you do, it PROBABLY will come back in pieces.

99% recovery rate. dont really know how you can make that up. real world= i DID get my bike back, in perfect shape, twice. i really do not understand why you guys discourage people from protecting their investment. if you get it back in pieces, claim insurance, total it and get another one. no harm no foul. in my case, as in many, many, many, many, many other cases, they come back in good shape, AND alot of thief rings have been busted because of it. MUST I GO ON?

*edit* the first two links are the same one. cops do NOT wait a week until after the bike is stolen. that is a complete crock of and that post needs to be deleted from that forum for lying to people. in the third link only the first post was showing for some reason. in the last link, you did nothing less but prove MY point, so i dont really know why you felt it was helping your argument, lol.

Good thing you got it back though.

I think the point is being missed... the more a thief has to deal with/contend with in trying to steal a bike. The less likely it is to be stolen, and the better chance someone has of interupting them.

The only 'real' protection, based on the commentary from posts like Tia's are... don't ever ride your bike, or better. Never buy a bike...

Now if you've got a bike and presuming your going to ride it. Logic dictates do what you can reasonably do to protect it.

Wrong. I would argue don't let your bike out of your site, and when you do, only for a short time. It isn't that hard if you think about it.

it takes 15 seconds to steal bike - is that a short enough time for you?

A person can't stop at the stop 'n go and run in to take a leak in that time.

Take all the precautions you reasonably can, insure it, and then just hope its not "your turn".. Because if it is, your bike is gone.

When are the cops going to set up decoy motorcycles like they do with the cars so they can catch some of these thievin' bastages?
