A few years ago, when Harley's were in big demand, we pulled into an underground hotel parking area in Daytona during bike week. The police had just left and the owner of the stolen Harley was just standing there. We asked what happened and he told us his bike was just stolen and it had a locking cable on the wheels. The police to him the thieves M/O was to have a rider ride into the the under ground garage and wait until no one was around, then ride out. That was the signal for a van and four guys with two pipes to drive in, jump out, and put the pipes through the wheels, lift it in the van and leave. Takes about 30 seconds. Lots of bikes were stolen that year.
