"The Gebert operation was sophisticated, but it also was dangerous, considering that bikers have a menacing reputation and Harley owners in particular are known to be protective of their expensive bikes. So the couple packed guns, including one equipped with a silencer, "to embolden themselves" when they stole the motorcycles."



Any would-be thieves reading this should know that the "Other-than Harley" riders also are protective of their expensive bikes (in particular!), and many of US also pack guns, and have no compunctions about using them on ne'er-do-well's..........

-Sure hope they had a ClassIII license for that, cuz otherwise it would be illegal.



And we all know criminals follow the law very closely.

Too bad the Feds didn't tack on another 10 years for having a silencer.



Criminals is so stoopid. Freaking morons. If you want to get away with stealing money then just open an HD dealership. Yuppies can't throw it at you quickly enough.

would be very interesting to know if they do follow up with the federal firearms violation, i can't imagine them having a class III license. perhaps they are being charged, the article doesn't seem to provide very many details.

Don't ya just miss the good old days? H-D folks the way they ought to be. No lawyers, doctors or accountants like now. Real harley people, salt of the earth. Lawyers on retainers not on our bikes.

I wonder how many they'll take down with them when the turn?

"Federal agents said the couple ran the theft operation from 1991 through 2004 and stole motorcycles in South Dakota, Florida, Georgia, California, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania."



Did you notice that they didn't mess with Tennessee bikes? It is well known that many of us here DO legally carry concealed weapons. Incidentally - thus far, no licensed citizen has used the weapon in a crime.
