Usually they drop "minor" crap like that - to "unencumber" the ongoing Prosecution.

I doubt you'll find an incident in ANY of the 35-odd (not sure of the exact number) States where a LEGAL, LICENSED TO CARRY Citizen committed a single crime with his weapon.



However, it's already uncountable the number of crimes that have been halted in their tracks by those same Law-Abiders.

Doesn't matter. The sheeple would apparently rather have criminals operating freely than feel the discomfort of having armed honest citizens around them.



I'll leave to smarter people than me to figure out that pathology.

It's simple, really. They only thing the sheeple know about guns is what they read or hear about. They have no real world experience with firearms, hence they are scared to death of them.

The logic is stupid but simple: If guns are illegal and no one has them, then they won't be available for criminals to get...



..because outlawing things have worked so well for drugs, alcohol during Prohibition, etc etc..

And machine guns and silencers were banned because every criminal had twenty or thirty available at all times...........

Default LoJack

One of the few accessories or add-ons I recommended to my customers during my brief stint at HD was LoJack. For $800 we'd install the system. It was well concealed (only two mechs in the shop were authorized for the install, and those were long-term employees). The first recovery occured within a month of offering them.



Unfortunately LoJack isn't available everywhere, and can't be installed on every bike. I think your best protection is a bigass cable lock through your frame and something solid or your buddy's bike. Nothing is perfect, but chances are bozos like these fokkers will pick another bike to steal.

Default Re: LoJack

Un-armoured cables are astonishingly easy to saw-through with one of those tiny "palm-sized" hacksaws.



Hardened chain (and un-shielded padlock shackles) practically explode beneath the jaws of a quality 15" pair of bolt-cutters.



Go for the cable that has those machined "barrels" (can't 'member the brand name) and a solid-machined, shielded-shackle lock (one with those "unpickable tumblers" net a bit more security).



Perhaps a disc-lock with alarm, as a backup.



None of that will keep your bike where you left it, if a determined thief wants it. But it will slow the ****sucker down a bit (no offense to socko).
