  1. sucks dude…dont ever leave your bike out in the bike theft capital of the US…tucson.  even for 5 minutes, especially unlocked, and in town.  and how do you forget about your bike????thats like leaving your kids in the car on a 100 degree day….

    anyways, hope it turns up and the thief dies.

  2. I’m alerted by riders that don’t match the bikes they’re on. It’s just a starting point in the sea of bikes that are out there, but it can be done. I’ve aided in the recovery of two bikes in seven years. One, a few minutes after it was stolen and the other,  two years after the fact – a highly identifiable custom that had not been altered.
    Wish there was a way to know how many get recovered.
    BTW, anyone seen my 280zx? :'(
