It's an island! You wouldn't think it would be that easy to hide all these stolen bikes on a island!



Must be stealing them for joy rides and dumping them.

Since Cincy is bottom on stolen & crashed, sounds like a good place to move. Too bad its about 6000% colder there in the winter than here.

I remember teaching a seminar in Juneau one time and the attendees told me they just left their keys in their cars.



The theory was if someone did steal your car, where the hell were they going to go?

Man, motorcycles have a rough life in Hawaii. People run them hard for lots of miles. I've seen plenty of three year old bikes with 50,000+ miles, and have yet to have an oil change. I've even seen honda rebels with 85,000 miles on them. No bad weather=lots of miles on an island you can drive across in 30min if you get lucky on traffic.

Brings a whole new meaning to "Drive it like you stole it" - I am because I did.

Which is why probably 95% of all vehicles are stolen in the first place.

Maybe "Dog" the bounty hunter should make a career change to motorcycle anti-theft patrol!

It's an island with cargo ships coming and going every day. I'll bet that those ships leaving Oahu have a few crates with stolen bikes in them headed for destinations unknown.
