    Hi all, don't know where to put this thread so thought it best to put it here.

    As I know some of you are bikers out there I would just like to say to the individual or individuals last night night who tried steel my motorbike to go and get a job you horrible scum.

    I woke up this morning to find they had broken into my shed, got some tools out and took the ignition apart! The one thing they didn't realise is I had a disc lock on the front brake discs! The metal on this is about half an inch thick, but they still tried to cut it with... wait for this, a junior hacksaw!! Idiots.

    No wonder they need to steel to make money, they are obviously too thick to work!!

    Thanks to them though they left everything there for me to put it all back together again and ride off to work this morning!

    Now some people would not bother putting on a disc lock when it is in the shed - I know I never used to. Looks like it saved your day.

    But as you say - total scum

    I hate disk locks, ever since I forgot to take one off in Reigate High Street, accelerated away, all of 9 inches and dropped a big BMW KT1100 right in front off a full bus stop queue. It must have looked so funny I bet some of those bus passengers still talk about it. :Blush:

    Wherever we stop.
    My hubby has a very desirable off road bike-all legal- in our garage.
    Friday night about 1.30am I woke up, saw security light was on, we wnt down & they ran off but they had removed the glass from side window, got in & opened door from inside-Yale lock. Police came out & next day forensics came out.
    Next night, Sat, at 12.30am Security light on again, same two trying to cut through the boarding at window :Rofl1:they were only using a pocket knife. Galloped out there they ran off, police called again-more forensics. We think because the MH wasn't in it's usual spot-was away for repair-they thought they had place to themselves.
    Best bit is they were in full light-security lights and in full view off road! But two consecutive nights, they must be thick.
    We took window out now just plain wall, that's put paid to their little game, the door has two big, mean locks on and loads of security in the garage.:Rofl1:

    Hi,
    Make no mistake they aren`t thick, most likely just drugged up, they will keep coming back unless you get the place alarmed.
    We know we`ve been there, we had a garden shed stripped out and contents layed out on the lawn, they got greedy and tried to smash into my workshop with a pickaxe which set off the alarm, I saw them running off down the road.

    Police came telling us it was the 6th shed broken into that night, nothing could be done as they hadn`t taken anything, the officer also told us that he had been in court the previous day and when the prosecutor had made his opening staement saying that the defendants had broken in to steal, the defense brief stood up and said they didn`t intend to steal anything and there wasn`t any evidence to support this.
    The prosecutor said then why did they break into the property that belonged to someone else and assemble certain items if not to steal them.

    The defence answer was they were just looking at them.

    Result was that they couldn`t be done for stealing...some legal system we have here.

    Can't offer advice but just wanted you to know I join in the anger and sheer bloomin frustration at these greedy, lazy no-goods who wouldn't have a clue how to save up for something if they want it. And the justice system if they are caught ..... well ... we won't even go there:Angry:

    Its one of the reasons why bike insurance is so high (along with the way some loonies choose to ride them of course!!!).

    I friend of mine worked at an insurance brokers and he said, its not if you are ever going to claim on your bike insurance, just a matter of how many times you claim whilst you have a bike. :Doh:

    The funny thing is I have two dogs who bark at anything that passes the window! Last night they didn't make a sound.

    I have a feeling they'll be back again tonight, let's hope so as me (16 stone ex para) and the two dogs are sleeping in the kitchen tonight. I'll give them the fright of their lives!

    And if they receive some minor injuries :boxing: then they must have fell over whilst running away from my property only to fall into my clenched fist I was shaking in anger at them running away!!:Wink:

    A good bit of advice about the disc lock or ground anchor as i've now got lazy and leave mine off in the garage, Don't like disc locks as i've done the same as the previous poster and forgot it when parked up with mates on Weymouth seafront, straight over:Doh: don't know who was laughing the hardest my mates or the whole of the seafront.
    About a year ago my wife woke up and saw the security light on looked out and saw 3 trying to break into the garage, without properly waking up i found myself outside at 3am dressed in not alot:Blush:. The thieves had run off but the police caught them coming out of someones lounge window a little way down the road.
    Got agarage defender now fior the up and over door

    my bro kept his bike in his garage and utilised the house burgler alarm wiring to include a 'security loop' using the tamper circuit of the alarm wiring.

    a simple phono plug on one end of the wire and a phono socket on the wall.
    loop the wire around the bike frame or back wheel and plug in...... thief breaks in, wheels bike out, thus pulling the plug and socket apart...alarm senses the tamper circuit has been triggered and goes off.

    the advantage was the tamper is permenantly live even when the actual alarm circuit is inactive so could be used at any time...day or night.

    It's not just thieves who are 'thick' or 'stupid' (actually a few are incredibly clever), but also there are some extremely thick and stupid home owners.

    My late mother who was light sleeper and often up in the middle of the night, witnessed a group of lads whom she thought were acting suspiciously around a wealthy neighbours house (very large detached in it's own grounds) so she called the Police. It was 3am.

    The Police responded immediately, caught all the lads 'red handed' and promptly carted them off down to the local nick. My mother then got a phone call asking if an officer could call round to take a statement from her and they were particularly interested as to the neighbours whereabouts. They had gone away on holiday for a few weeks.

    A few days later my mother had a call from the Police saying they would need to have a serious talk with the neighbour immediately on their return from holiday. Apparently the house had been left totally unsecured, windows wide open, and both front and back door unlocked. Though the Police had caught two of the lads inside the house, they could not bring a charge of breaking and entering as they had simply walked in! No items were found on them so they hadn't committed an act of theft either.

    Result being these lads had to be set free.........and my mothers neighbour got a serious rollicking on his return. Personally i'd no sympathy for him. Far too much money and very little brain. :RollEyes:

    biker sympathy

    Yes we are bikers/Trikers (3 bikes & a Trike) and have great sympathy for all who suffer at the hands of scumbags like these! :Angry:

    When you think we live in SE London, we have been very lucky in our street as we are very close knit here, there was a gang caursing trouble for a few months; stole my mirrors, bike cover at several attemps at stealing my Susuki but after being chased by us and the rest of the street a few times they vanished off the planet (prob in nick!) but it was my good quality disc lock that saved my Suzuki! And our fab neibours :thumb:

    We all need to look out for eachother and then we will get rid of these scumbags! :Angry:
