I hope this is the right place.... Just a reminder, we all need them now and again. I bought a bike lock for my motorcycle yesterday. I locked it up when I got home from work about 3:30AM. When I was going out to pick up some milk this morning, at about 11:30am, I noticed strange foot prints by my XL600. I almost didn't buy the lock. There is no reason for anyone's foot prints to be there. When I was taking pictures, a San Bernadino County sheriff stopped and said I look suspicious and asked why are you taking pictures? I explained it is my bike and the situation. He then informed me that dual sports and dirt bikes are the most stolen type of vehicle in the area:eek1. and that thieves are busting locks and chains to get them I park my bike close the meter guard and lock the handlebars facing the wall. I am going to get a heavy duty chain and a fatty master lock today. Please lock up your bike(s) if you don't have a garage for storage. I don't even have a fence. I don't want to hear about an inmate's bike getting stolen when it could of been prevented. We love our motorcycles. Any lock can be broken. it is a matter of time and effort. You have to present to the criminal it is not worth the work and risk. Ride on!
