How was your bike stolen?

I read on a lot of forums that folks have "had their bike stolen". I have never had mine lifted (knock on wood) but would be curious to know the circumstances of how others had theirs stolen so I can be more aware and limit the likelihood that mine gets snatched!

Same thing here in the Colorado Springs / Denver area, I only heard of bikes being stolen that were left outside. I have been here 8 yrs and have yet to hear about one being taken out of a garage yet, but it's possible here I'm sure.

I would rather ride my motorcycle and think about God instead of sitting in church thinking about riding my motorcycle.

10 yes ago I had mine stolen. It was in underground parking at my apartment complex . Chained and locked to loop in ground . From what I could tell they cut the chain and loaded in a truck . Had the bike for less than a month bought it brand new .

I was deployed, my parents were holding on to my bike for me in a tiny suburb of Cleveland. Crime is literally non-existant. Huge power outage in all of Cleveland one evening. My parents power went out and the garage doors would not close without power (besides manually of course). Thieves came in and assumingly carried the bike out. I got a call a few days later saying the cops had already been called and a police report filed. Expensive lesson for a young kid.

May God have mercy on the soul who even ATTEMPTS to try stealing mine, would be a sad, very sad day for that person(s).

word

my bike is kept in a secured access condo garage with cameras. the comprehensive insurance I've got is mostly for when I park it at places I go to. I do have total loss coverage, so getting it stolen would just force me to get a new one, minus a $100 deductible. But when you put miles and memories on it, not to mention blood and sweat working on the thing, the bike no longer is just a thing that can be replaced...

If a real thief wants your bike they will get it. You are talking about knuckleheads that do dumb things.
