Just a little more to think about.
Out in the alley today as I opened my gate to run some errands I found the remains of a hefty cable lock similar to the types used for motorcycles. I have no idea where it came from but I wouldn't be surprised if it's connected with a stolen motorcycle. The cable itself was intact but the bolt had obviously been cut through with a disc grinder and cutoff wheel.
More and more it's becoming apparent that the only way to secure a bike is to use one of those wheel boots where the front wheel is gaurded by the side plates and the locking pin is secured down in the wheel. Make the bastards cut the forks if they want the damn bike that bad.
