Too bad they can't just beat 'em to death instead of "prosecuting" them... Nothing worse than a bike thief IMHO.

My buddy is an undercover CHP officer. They leave a tricked out Acura running outside a "late night" beverage store. Wait for the dumb-ass to hop in and that's when the car shuts down. Locks, windows, engine.....nada.

The camera in the ac vents records the whole thing.



Oh, BTW, first.

I found a sure-fire way to attract thieves to your motorcycle; leave the key in the ignition. Thanks to a good samaritan that chased the would-be theives off, I never had to go through the anguish of getting my motorcycle stolen. That taught me a valuable lesson; take the key out of the ignition before you get off your bike.

I suggest coating the motorcycle with a sticky substance that glues the perp to the bike. Or maybe a cardboard mototcycle full of explosives? Kind of like a roach-motel, but better.



On the flip side, a theft deterent might be to leave the keys in some old ratty KZ750. Or Jawa 90.

I allways thought a "profesional" tear gas grenade primed to detonate @ the first sign of tampering would be a mature way of dealing with punks, especialy the ones that slimjim'd my car and stole my stereo and glove box contents.. I do have some doubts as to the legality of said recourse. luckily my bike has yet to be tampered with. knock on wood..

Sorry. Using a Jawa to attract would-be thieves is not allowed. First... it probably wouldn't attract anybody. Second... the US Constitution expressly forbids cruel and unusual punishment.



I suggest using a power supply for a 33 inch Cathode Ray Tube from a television. Heheheheheheh. 30,000 volts to ground. Heheheheh. Watch the thief dance the holy moly down the street on stilts made of blue sparks. Heheheheh.

Yes it is obvious, however sometimes being human causes the obvious to be the last vestige of conciousness. Another last vestige of humanity appears to be civility.
