Long story but basically 2 weeks ago somebody jumped my garden fence in the wee hours and pushed my old rusty scrambler out of the garden and down to the sidegate with a view to starting it , bashing through the gate and taking off.
Luckily it had no petrol,coils or ignition so starting it is, er , a bit impossible.
My fault really as I had left it unchained in the middle of the garden whilst I was working on it - in a position visable from a number of other houses one of which had a load of builders in ( my guess being,maybe unfairly, that my neighbours tend to be elderly and or ‘respectable’ but an itinerant labourer might fancy a go at it ).
Anyway - now chained up securely (Almax) and I have a timed alarm on the gate…so should be okay.
But since,touch wood, I have never been burgled here or had a bike nicked it left me feeling a bit violated.
Also there was a nagging thought that the scrotes who did it were discussing it over a glue sniff and deciding when was the best time to return and have a better go…
This morning I woke to find the cover lifted to expose the security chain.
The wind did it? Probally.
But my paranoia thinks it was the scrotes out on the streets after Halloween returning for go number 2 and being surprised it was chained up…:crazy:
Don’t wanna feed your paranoia… but I’m gonna anyway
I had a GSXR1000 stolen from my house, and in the days leading up to the theft notice that the cover kept being raised up and I thought it was the wind… also kept finding my dog sniffing round by the door, and growling but by the time I looked out no one was there… obviously they were!
Sort out some CCTV. Single cam kits are pretty cheap these days, start at around ~£100 down Maplin, probably cheaper still online. It’ll put your mind to rest as to whether it was wind lifting cover or not. Worst comes to worst, it could provide the last key piece of evidence to bang up some known scum bags.
