Two weeks ago 2 bikes were taken from the Sprint Enduro then 5 more bikes stolen at Motovated Off Road last weekend. Everyone needs to be vigilant for suspicious activity while at the races or just plain trail riding. Make sure and lock up bikes and valuables! If you are uncomfortable keeping your bike at a hotel find someone at the race to lock your bike / trailer with.

This has been a public service message initiated by Steve Mason. ::up::

Best,

Based off of my own personal experience and my observation of the recent thefts I share this info:


Many of you already know this, but putting your bikes in a trailer or van covered with moto stickers is not a great idea. Seems like many of the guys with bikes stolen had their bikes in an enclosed trailer that was covered in decals. You might as well hire a guy with a plane and a sign to fly over all day telling the bad guys where your stuff is located.

Use a good lock. I lock my bikes up with a cable and master lock like the one below all the time. Even if it's in my garage I run the cable through all my bikes and anything else nearby. The lock in the link below is very difficult to cut. My wife manages a climate controlled storage facility and I have a lot of experience cutting locks. I can cut just about any lock with the typical bolt cutters, but not locks like the one below. They will break the teeth out of the bolt cutters. I started using a grinder because we kept ruining the bolt cutters. Sure they can still be cut but not in 5 seconds.

They make several sizes too.
