Angry SOB! They almost got me last night!

Yup, my bike almost got stolen last night

So we get off from work last night at 11pm and everybody on my crew wanted to grab a beer and some wings. So we head down to the Buffalo Wild Wings in Grapevine off of 114 and William D Tate. I had a couple of beers, probably hung out there a totally of 1.5 hour, and was heading out the door about 1am.

I see this guy standing next to my bike talking on the cell phone, didn't think nothing much of it because a car is parked next to my bike and I'm thinking it's his car and he's just pacing around it and was checking out my bike. As I start getting closer he turns and looks up at me sorta surprised, obviously it's my bike because of the jacket and helmet. He starts walking away but the alarm bell hadn't quite turned on in my head. I sit my helmet down on my seat and go to turn on the bike, nada. Odd.... no way my battery could be dead. Take the keys out and put them back in and turn again. No lights, nothing. RED ALERT! I turn around looking for that guy and he's on the opposite side of the building from me by now looking directly at me. We make brief eye contact and then he hauls ass. I left my key in the ignition and all my gear there and run around the corner, nothing again. FUCK!

Run inside and grab my friends and one of them calls the cops. We combed the parking lot but didn't see anything. I remember when he ran around the corner I saw the corner lights on an F-150 light up briefly, like when I lock the doors with the remote. So I start looking in that truck thinking it's his and that he locked the doors as he was running off.

Cops show up within 5 minutes, damn I've gotta admit the Grapevine cops are efficient. No less than 3 squad cars. They circled around a few times but they said that whoever it was is probably long gone. I mentioned the F-150 and what I saw about the lights as the guy ran around the corner. I thought they were going to blow me off but they went and ran the plates and went to the Denny's next door and found the owner. Pure luck I guess, the guy had just pulled up and went next door to eat. He came out and I saw him and realized it wasn't the same guy.

Anyway, the thief had cut the wires coming under the triple for the ingnition attempting to hot wire it. Don't think he would have been sucessful because even after we attached all the wires back together we still had no power. I'm thinking it's probably a blown fuse. We couldn't get the bike started so I had t call and wake up a buddy of mine to get my truck and trailer and come pick me up. It was a long drive home, didn't get in until 5am which sucked because I had to be at work at 9am. Wound up calling the job saying I wouldn't be in until 1:30pm and sleeping in

Anyway, this seriously has me thinking about bike security. Sucks that this happened where I thought it would be fairly safe but goes to show that you give a thief any sort of oppurtunity they will take it.

Wow... i'm really close to you and was thinking about going up there last night. I'm sure you heard my obnoxious drunk friends yelling at each other.


I'm glad that guy didn't get your bike... but on a side note drinking and riding is not a good idea.

Jose that was close!

Do your handle bars lock? I lock mine all the time even in Starbucks. Does anyone use the locks that go through the brake rotors?
I have seen a guy do that at a bar once on a cruiser. It was real quick, he did it with one hand.

How well do they work? if at all?

I saw this thread and had to comment, I have never had a bike but....I go to school at UNT where they have had plenty of problems with this. Something I've always wondered is do they usually hotwire them, or do they just pick them up or what? Not looking to get into this line of work, just curious.

x2 i would like to know. how well would an alarm work. i know that clifford(as well as others) make alarms that alert a "pager" on your key chain. how well would this work on a bike or are there specific kits for bikes?

Fuckin bastards!!! I can't wait to shoot one of those little piece of shit low life goat fucking crack head mother bitches!!! Glad you didn't get it stolen Jose!

The night of the Stuper Bowl, me, Christy, and the kids were at this Italian joint eating, and i was staring right at my bike the whole time. Well, i see this guy walking thru the parking lot talking on his cell, turn, walk over to my bike, and start checking it out. Well, my back pack is right underneath me with my Glock in it. So then, i see this white Ford truck pull up, and the guy walks over there and starts talking to him. Ok, safety off!! Then, the truck drives off, and the guy walks off. Man, my trigger finger was twitching baaaad!!

same exact thing happend to me a year ago. it blew the main fuse, but was otherwise ok.

when you get your new ignition, you can take the plug off where it goes into the main harness and slide some -6AN braided line over the wires so they can't cut it again. leave just enough room so the connector to go on, and make sure you use some sort of fitting so the frayed edges don't rub the wires. i did it to mine and it worked out pretty good. only downside is that it was a tight fit how it was routed and made it harder to lock the steering head.

HEy I got a quick question......... In TX, if you see someone messing with your bike in a parking lot, are you ALLOWED to beat the shit out of them or only enough to subdue them? Or are you even allowed to subdue them?
Out of randomness, are you allowed to shoot them with a paintball gun?

Sorry I haven't responded to this thread yet, just been a little busy with work. Anyway, haven't checked to see if it was a fuse or not (just haven't had the time). Hell the bike is still on my trailer. But I'll check it out this weekend.

Thanks the spindoctor, I may look into that.

As far as the description, I don't have a good one as I wasn't paying real close attention to him. Like I said, things didn't click until I tried to start my bike up. I've never had any problems with that area but just goes to show that you are not safe anywhere.

Freaking thieves!!! I'm glad you walked out and he didn't walk away with your bike. I get made cuz I have a bike but I am scared to ride it anywhere that I will have to leave it outside without a clear line of sight to it.

I hope he tries to steal someone's stuff and gets caught and killed. Would serve him right.

DAMN man sounds like he knew what he was doin, glad u came out in time. By the way all you had to do was switch the main fuses under the seat bc it has a spare next to the main and ride right home. Let me know if you need any advice to fix it or i can put a theft kill switch hidden on your bike for ya.

come on, do you really think they're going to let you just beat the shit out of someone based on suspiscion? If you see someone actually stealing your shit you can bust them up and call the cops, but you can't make them bite the curb or anything.

If its at night you can use up to deadly force to prevent someone from stealing your vehicle. Its in the Texas penal code but I dont remember what sub section it is in.

And for those of you wondering if the small wheel locks that slip through the rotor are very easy to remove.All it takes is a screw driver.
Most theives take the whole bike and throw it in a van or the back of a truck instead of trying to hotwire it.

Jose if you need any help getting it running let me know. It would only cost you a few beers

What about the disc locks with the alarm built in.... is there a way to turn off the sound on those? Even if they take it off, atleast that loud stinging sound will be heard and maybe scare them off.

Also wondering, are you allowed to shoot them with a paintball gun?

JUST WONDERING.....I hate theives
I heard you might be allowed to mark them for future identification. (sarcasm)
I was thinking a Whale Harpoon would make a good marking device.(sarcasm)
Of course marking to the face is probably not allowed. (sarcasm)

And for those of you wondering if the small wheel locks that slip through the rotor are very easy to remove.All it takes is a screw driver.
Most theives take the whole bike and throw it in a van or the back of a truck instead of trying to hotwire it.

Jose if you need any help getting it running let me know. It would only cost you a few beers
Deadly force can be used but I would seriously take into consideration the aftermath. Grand jury, lawyer fees, possible law suit, etc.

Stephen, I'll defintely give you a holler man. Damn cold weather
