Exclamation 2 Guys, 1 Truck at 2AM - Bike Almost Stolen (Caught them on video)
My motorcycle was almost stolen last night, and I happen to catch it on camera. Can you guys help me identify the type of truck? Here's the video:



Sorry for the low quality, but I think you can visibly see them in action. Please excuse my grammar and spelling errors as I was infuriated, and was rushing to complete the video so I can show it to everyone ASAP.

This is the only damage they caused, before my built alarm chased them off.

It would seem that they're targeting specific bikes, as you can see from the end of the video - my neighbor's Ninja 650 is directly in front of my bike. He does not have any bike cover, or alarm, and he only has a "bicycle" chain... and yet they targeted my Yamaha R6?

Thanks guys! The police has already been tipped... like it matters

EDIT: One of my neighbor's identified it as a Silver Dodge Ram either extended or megacab, so be on the look out in your area.

Scratch that, after zooming in after the alarm trigger, It looks more like a Tundra, like this probably a 2006ish :

Move your bike to another location. They know its there. They know it has an alarm.

I doubt it's a Tundra. Headlights scream Ram.


I agree about moving the bike. Do it now.

That's a Dodge Ram quad cab. I agree completely about moving your bike.

It is a 2009 or newer Ram. I had a 06 and just bought the 12. The wheels are the same as on my truck, which are the 20" five spoke chrome. That makes is a SLT trim model. As for your R6 glad you didn't looser her. There has been so many thefts. I as shocked to read so many stolen threads after being in Japan for a year.

My new room mate will move in with me next week, and he is getting a garage. He said I could park my bike inside, as he himself is getting one next Month. However, until that happens, I will NOT be moving my bike... I actually want them to come back

The bike is tied to a post with this chain:



It has a built-in alarm with a 2 way radio, and a perimeter sensor (I just got it set to a very sensitive setting - if a squirrel get within a foot it will tip me off). The bike has a built-in external battery, so it doesn't matter if they cut the power quickly. I would probably be next to them, smiling, by the time they took the alarm power off. Then I'd say "hey guys, you like my bike?! Unfortunately it's not for sale..." and have a decent chat with them. I have my window open now, and as you can see it's only 20 feet away from room.

Oh and I clipped this on both sides of the bike cover for everyone to see, hopefully they do too

You might try setting up a small camera on the car port cover. Catching a face, or license plate, would be gold. Once you have that, we can all keep an eye out. If my stolen Jeep could be recovered in less then 24hours from forum members on here, I don't see why we couldn't find those thieving bastards.

Here you go, print out one for each side of your bikes cover.

That'll fix it.

Be sure to tell your neighbors it's for security, not that you would shoot the complex up.

Just be cautious; their shooting about one person a day . If you startle them or get too good a look; They may feel it's better to take you out. I would sit up all nite myself if I could legally, meter out the kind of justice they deserve...AJ

Well, I guess I'm the type of person who ain't afraid to get shot. I've seen plenty of action when I did my tour on Iraq and Afghanistan. If he points a gun at me, I'd tell him he better pull the f-ing trigger, because if he don't - I'll break that scrawny dudes neck... self-defense of course.
