Re: motorcycle getaway 3.1 million dollars jewelry heist

That's pretty damn ballsy. Something similar happened a while back:

Motorbike gang rob West End jewellers Mappin & Webb in broad daylight



Quote:
A WEST END jeweller in Piccadilly, London, was the latest victim of motorcycle-riding thieves yesterday, when a gang performed a daring smash'n'grab robbery in the middle of the day.

The gang, armed with sledge hammers, smashed their way into into Mappin & Webb's Piccadilly store in the West End, before making off with goods worth around 50,000.

The gang, made up of five men on three bikes, took less than a few minutes to take their haul. A lookout rider, on what's believed to be a KTM Duke, stands guard as the thieves make their daring raid.

If the first thing you think of after seeing a picture of a badass picture of dudes robbing a bank on motorcycles is getting poked in the back by a guy's dong, no amount of "no homo" is going to save you.
