So I officailly put my bike in storage for the winter 2 weeks ago. This place has mad security. 5 digit personal code to get in the gate, all units are inside, there are cameras everywhere on the property, 2 locks on my unit, and theres a guard who does rounds....bike will be safe right? WRONG lol.

Yesterday I go to visit my R6 just because I missed it lol. As I walk up to my unit I notice a single lock is on it and its not mine. Immediately go get cutters and get it off, open my unit and my tool box, bike cover, stock exhaust, extra tires, and some other misc parts are gone. Check my bike (which is now off its stands but the stands are there) and the ignition has been beat to shit with a screwdriver and hammer. Call the police, make report, call property manager to come down to pull video. Sure enough just 2 hrs before I was there a guy with a neighboring unit breaks in, sees my bike, makes a call, 10min later another car comes with 2 more dudes and they tried to steal it for almost an hour. On their way out they both stop and look directly at the camera, have a convo about it, then leave. We also have both cars plates from the outside cameras.

Since the guy has a unit we have his address and the cops are going there today. Ive heard criminals are dumb but to try and steal something when there are signs everywhere saying your being tapped is beyond retarded. These dudes are so lucky I didnt walk in while it was going on. The Beretta would have been out and faces would have been stomped.

Wowww! See, in another string yesterday I said that the people that try to steal bikes are usually the ones that live around you and have been plotting on you.

What an a$$hole! TOTALLY keep us posted, and if you can get pics of him being arrested POST IT UP, with his name, address, etc. With all of the hits this site has, would be great for someone to google the guys name and have this string show up!!!!!

hopefully they spend a $hit load of time in prison for what they tried to pull, glad u still have ur six and u had evidence of them on camera. In my case, there was no video camera's in the apartment complex and I was left with missing parts and scratches all over the fairings, busted allen heads coz they obviously didnt have the right tools. I'm still glad they left behind my 6.

This is exactly why I tell people if they are storing their bike to keep insurance on their bike and not remove coverage just because they won't be riding it.

Glad you still have your 6 and that these crooks were amateurs. Post up their info and maybe some of their stuff will go "missing."

I don't know too much about storage units.. But do they owe you something? Or is it one of those, if you're property is tampered with or stolen, well, you're screwed
