Theft and Vandilism

I was just wondering as i was cruising other forums. How often have you been a victim of theft or vandilism?

If you have been, what were the conditions? What area of the country?

I'm paranoid, i live in a townhouse and keep my bike locked in my basement. It never sees a night outside.

Had my first 600RR stolen about a month after getting in Los Angeles. Got followed home by a couple african american males who waited til i went to sleep and then used a fake key to start it. One of the guys got caught riding it after wrecking it a few times and was released with no charges.

A good friend of mine got his F4 stolen out of a storage complex, the thief then went on to hit an off duty cop going about a 100mph. Needless to say he died but the cop did live through the experience. Also note that my friend had layed his bike down right before this happend and busted the radiator and the faring on the right hand side of the bike. So this thief was cruzing arount town on a bike with a busted radiator. My friend was so pissed. He probably would have shot him if he had not died.

Thats why I made sure I found an apt with a garage when I moved out here to SoCal. I know when I sleep at night my baby is safe (well, as safe you can get).

I was in San Diego CA while in the service and had my '94 F2 ripped off right out of my own driveway out by Lemon Grove while I was on the ship for the day. Thought it was a joke the other guys played on me. Just seeing that empty spot is a shock. 2 months earlier, someone had ripped off the body work. My fault for parking in a bad area over night. I fixed it up the next month and made it into the Smoke'n Joe Replica...then it disappears. Had a disk lock on, and that was all.

Recently I had one of my CRF50's ripped off from work up here south of Sacramento. We have a track right outside the fence and we're in an industrial park. One Saturday, me and the girls were riding trying to teach the kid to ride. Well, some kid comes up and asked if he could ride...but hindsight 20/20, he was scoping the place out. That Monday when I got in, one was gone from the shop. Cut a hole in a our fence, climbed in the little window, back out the fence. Got our welder and air compressor too. Ok, so I learned my leason, right? Nah...they came BACK through the same spot I just fixed and got another of my 50's, bunch of my tools, and my '02 YZ125. In a period of 6 days, I lost well over $5K in bikes alone. Probably another grand in other stuff.

All I have on my RR now is a huge New York Chain and it's wrapped around an I-beam in my garage. It ain't going to stop someone since my torch and Plasma are in there. I have no where else to put that stuff! Hopefully it'll at least slow them down.

Oh, and I swear I get followed home. You can just tell you're being cased sometimes. And my mastiff isn't mean enough to do anything but drool on anyone :(

I saw Two Wheel Tuesday's series of theft shows this winter, and they say they won't enter your home since there's so many other places they can get stuff quicker. The order of pickings the theif said was: Gated community, apartment complex, parking lots, and then possibly your garage. He (the crummy theif on the show) said gated communities are the worse because everyone in there assumes someone picking up a bike is the owner..."how else would they get passed the gaurd?" I could see that too I suppose.

I left my bike outside for 1 night with it chained to the gate outside my front door with a bike cover. I guess they saw the chain and didn't try to steal the bike, but they took my $89 bike cover. :sad11: It's never been left outside again, I won't bring it out of the garage if I'm not planning to ride it/maintenance.

I had an 87 Ninja 1000R stolen. Idiot hotwired it,, then didn't get 2 miles beofre he didn't make a turn. Banged himself up good, got caught by the cops and I got a judgement for $3000. I sold the bike for parts. Everything worked out ok, cuz I bought a 94 600F2 then.

Long time post lurker,,, I see what you have been sayin!
