*SOB*
The night before last somebody broke into my garage, ignored the computers, pushbikes, lawnmowers etc and absconded with my baby.

:cry:

I feel as if someones kidnapped one of my children...wondering what they're doing to her..
It was fully insured but I wont get the insurance money for a couple of months so I'm a bit peeved.

Anyone reading this in Western Sydney be aware, the cops told me there's a gang of youths following dirtbikes home and then doing the unmentionable. Any suggestions on keeping my next BRP safe???

There are several lock systems that pass through the swing arm or forks or brake disks or sprockets. It would make it more difficult to move your bike without resorting to physically carrying it. But if they are really pros, they will get it.

My favorite is to run an electrical circuit to the bike and they complete the ground when they touch it. I think this would be against the law in most places but right non the less. :cry: :cry: :cry:

What if you had a "Caution, High Voltage, Do not enter" sign on the Garage door...Then you'd have your butt covered if they happened to be standing in a pool of water or maybe around Gasoline fumes when the circut was completed?

Wal-Mart sells a monster thick 6 foot cable with intergrated lock for 20 bucks :lol:!!! Put that around the frame of the bike, and around a pipe, 4x4, or something like that in the garage. They will see that and just go look for another bike :cry:. Sure it would still be possible to steal the bike by cutting, or breaking [@#$%&*!] :cry: but that would make so much noise that they would be caught before they finished :cry:. It does not have to be impossible to steal, just make it so hard that its not worth the risk and effort and they just go elsewhere :cry:.

I like the electric idea, but its to hard to set up :lol:, and its kind of hard on the kids :cry:...

It would be even worse for you in court because you knew you had a dangerous situation. I say just shoot them and despose of the body! :lol:

I'm with don. I catch someone breaking into my house, look out! I would tie em' up and torture em' for a few hours before I called the cops. Actually screw the cops, I've got plenty of shovels and friends... :cry:

that truly sucks, right out of the garage. I have 10 bikes in my shop, along with a ton of tools. I extended the alarm system from my house to my shop and put a motion sensor in there. Anyone get's in there at night, I'll know. I've set it off by accident a few times by opening the overhead door without disarming it.

In this day and age of so many scum sucking low lifes you all should really consider an alarm for the house and premises.

This is what I do too. I have the biggest damn chain that I could find (you would need supersize bolt cutter to get through it.)and run it through both tires and the frame and then around a support beam in my garage. It would be some serious work to get that bike out of there.

Best idea was the motion detectors and alarm. Hook that up to a foghorn or something similiar in volume. :cry:

My biggest source of stress is the thought of coming home from work to find I've been ripped off. Living in the country and having just built my place I've not yet installed all the necessary alarms, lights, etc...SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS!!! Hope they get caught by a homeowner and his hammer!

Sorry to hear of your loss. :cry:

Three of ours were stolen last April, but we did get them back. We never caught who did it though. It's probably a good thing... :cry:

Best of luck with getting it back or getting replacement. Been there, know the feeling. :cry:

I have been thinking alot about this very problem. I am thinking when I put mine in storage ( I live in an apt and pay a place to store mine) putting a disk lock like you would buy for a street bike AND a cable on it. I guess if they want it bad enough and cant afford it nothing is going to stop them from taking it...except for a head and ass full of buck shot.
