G'day TTalkers,

Got home from the AMTRA (Australian Trailriders Association) meeting last night to find our place has been burgled. My pride and joy mountain bike that I won at the Blue Light Ride (by getting dressed up as Elvis) was stolen along with other electrical goods.
For all out there...make sure you have contents insurance. Thank christ my riding gear is stored elsewhere..... :)

i had my bike stolen last year,it sucks.but maybe when you read how mine was stolen it will cheer you up.i even thinks it kinda funny now. i usually kept my bike at my cabin in sierras.but i saw a couple kids eyeballing it the night before i was coming i decided id better bring it backdown to my house in the city.i got home took bike out off my back of my truck and put it on my front porch.went inside ate a microwave burrito and made a 15min. phonecall.then went back out to hose down bike but it was gone.someone stole it off my front porch less than a hour after i got home.$600 down the drain.i would of filed claim with my homeowner insurance but my deductible is $500

One motorbike and two that's right two cars, never saw any of them again.

yet a guy around the corner has his keys in the ignition of his car and they took his pushbike worth nothing. Some people are just lucky/unlucky

Caught two kids 3:30am trying to jimmy the lock on my bike. I had time to open my safe and get out my Mossberg 12 gauge riot gun/home defender with the lazer sight. I told my wife to call 911 while I snuck around the corner of the house. When I was 10 feet away, I jacked a shell into the chamber and pointed it at the dick-heads. They hit the ground, and once the cops got there, they told me they think one of the kids sh!t their pants....There is justice if you know how to go about it! Virtually no trouble since.

Rock on (and get a Mossberg) :)

Guns are the answer. What is the question again? Looking down the barrel of that crowd pleaser makes one forget, and possibly sh1t ones pants. :) :D
