Default Its not JUST Kryptonite...

IT's effectively ALL cylindrical-key locks. Kryptonite just happens to be the big name.



Whats worse, this is a problem which has been known for >10 years, but only recently has gotten publicity.

Does this mean we can terrorize Harley owners with Bics?





Ha! It'd be great to be able to steal my neurotic buddy's V-Rod with a freakin' pen. He'd go nuts.



Yeah, I know it's only a bike lock we're talking about, but still, it's funny to consider the possiblities.

Funny, but for the last few months, I've been securing my old Kawasaki with the hollow shaft of a ballpoint pen; in the hopes someone will steal it. No such luck, so far only tickets for littering.



That's the nice thing about driving rat bikes, no one want to steal 'em.

I'm with you. No one would ever touch my beat up old Magna. Especially if I park it next to Harleys as much as possible.



I almost picked up a '77 KZ1000LTD this week ($900 asking price with only 13K on it) but someone beat me to it. That'd be another bike to not worry about.



And I'd still be kicking Ninja 600 butt on the street.

Too bad, you could have made a "Mad Max" looking street fighter out of it and went blazing around rural Utah frightening tourists

Careful who you frighten in rural Utah... unless you want the sudden unintended acceleration via "rock sat boost".
