Thank You for serving;
I most certainly understand your thinking. Served myself, different time different local, same type of war. Hope you don't meet them, as likely their blood will be shed. I hope your better able to adjust back to civilian life than I did. It is hard to sit at the VA next to men who remind me what I must have looked & sounded like 40 some years ago. If you ever need to talk, you can PM. And I do believe it's a Dodge...AJ

They target the R6 and R1s because of resale of the parts are good when they strip them.I am so sick of hearing of bike thefts.I also would defend my property exercising my second ammendment rights

Definitely a 2009 or newer Ram. Notice the light shining down on the door everytime they open it. That's the puddle lamp on the mirror which, I believe, is only available on the 4th gen Ram's. I had a 2010 and the color of those lights is pretty distinctive.

What about mounting one of those Deer spotting still cameras with night vision? They are pretty cheap these days, then you can see who is scoping out your bike!

If they are targeting specific bikes that means they have seen your bike before uncovered. I'm betting one of your neighbors is involved somehow.

The truck is probably stolen to so that doesn't really matter.

Glad they didn't get your bike. F*CK THEM...

Put your shiat in a garage, personal garage!!! Not a garage in a apartment. People can come and go as they please in those garages.

This is what I was thinking, your place seems to be tucked back off the street far enough to where people driving by can't catch a glimpse of it.

Silver Ram for sure.

these guys looked like rookies, someone who's stolen bikes before wouldn't mess around with cutting a strap, leaving, then coming back a few minutes later. Two guys could pick it up and toss it in the back.

damn I hate thieves..

Now that they know you have an alarm they will probably leave your bike alone. I think a phone with gps hidden on the bike would be pretty cool. You could follow at a distance and find out where they end up and call the cops or figure it out yourself. Also the deer cameras work great. My neighbor was letting her dog out after I went to work to let him shit in my yard. I got one of those cameras and put it in a tree in my yard and caught her red handed standing at the edge of her yard while her dog took his dump. Now I have four infrared cameras set up all over the outside hooked to a dvr. You might be able to get a wireless infrared for your carport. If the signal is strong enough to reach your apartment you could record all the action.

In my experience, you cannot get arrested or charged with assualt (in any degree) if you shoot someone with rock salt or bean bag rounds. Had a similar situation with my cage in Tacoma and I came away scott free (obviously this is advice does not constitute the law, and is simply a reflection on an experience I encountered with the legal system.)

1. Keep bike inside house.

2. They come in to steal bike.

3. Castle Law.

I believe you and Kenr are right! I always put a cover on my bike after I'm done riding, so there's no way in hell those thieves can know what type of bike it is. Plus they would have greater success by stealing my neighbor's bike, all they needed was a pair of pliers from Walmart... somebody from this area is definitely tipping them, and they are very close to my complex.

I hope so! I'm just glad this thread didn't have the title of:

"OMG my bike is gone, please keep on a lookout for a red R6"

Yes, I'm actually investing on a wireless DVR camera. I'm a little bummed that I did not get their license plate... but hey! That's the closest that anybody has gotten on identifying our perpetrators on this forum... as far as I know anyways, heck they might be even browsing this for shit and giggles.

I'm just happy that the neighbors has been alerted, I printed out dozens of paper giving out the truck model, their method of stealing the bike, and the link to this video.

Thanks again guys!

EDIT: One more thing, it irks me when people brag about how amateur these thieves are. What if I didn't have all the bells and whistles, and they ran off with my bike and didn't catch them on camera... does that make them professional? Do they really think, a "professional," would've walked away with my bike, without me or anyone being alerted? Let's recap:

My bike has a Dowco Cover: The cover itself has six pockets inside. Each pocket can hold a 130db alarm, and I place this alarm on random spots. That adds extra unwanted time for the thieves, notice how they only partially open the front cover?



The bike is tied to a post, with a parallel electrical pipe running through it. It's tied with this beast:



Yes, I know it can be cut... but it will take time, especially since it's elevated off the ground. Again, more unwanted time for the thief.

Now to top it off, the bike has a built-in 2 way radio alarm. It has a great 3-stage perimeter sensor (can be set to be loud or silent... which still alerts me), a built in accelerometer that detects both impact and changes of angles with a high degree of accuracy, a transceiver that's capable of receiving alarm triggers from up to Mile away from the motorcycle, and a built-in backup battery inside the alarm.

They have to go through all that little BS like cutting the chain, finding the alarm trigger, finding the cover alarm... all that while avoiding tripping the perimeter sensor (now set to fiver feet). The perimeter triggers the alarm on my keys if someone stays within range for four seconds. The bike also sends an alarm to my keys and the bike when the accelerometer changes by a degree.

I seriously doubt that even a professional thief would have a greater success running off with my bike.

Yes sir, good luck with yours! I'm happy to say that we are finally getting a garage on August 7th right next to our new place. Well within range of my camera, and radio sensors. I will be setting up a wireless DVR inside the garage, and outside the window

this would mean setting off a firearm in city limits which is illegal when life is not in danger.

BTW, a motion sensor and a 100 watt spotlight would do wonders for the video quality.
