Damn!
they stole my uncle's GSA also this weekend in Boksburg.

These truly are the Hiluxes of the bike world!

Good luck, hopefully you don't lose a lot with insurance value vs extras lost

I will be taking this as a reminder to call Netstar now before I make a similar post sometime

Did they steal it when it was parked next to the burglar alarm and siren that we can see on the wall?

That looks like an electric fence energizer and the siren is wired to that.

They broke out one of the bars of the sliding gate.
Broke gate motor, and slid open gate.
Broke open garage door, pushed Pajero out of the garage.
Took the BeeEem and 2x mountain bikes
Loaded it into a white taxi

Nope, a couple of years ago they stole another client of mine's brand new GSA (less than 2000km) out of a single garage parked in front of his Ford Ranger without touching the Ranger  >:(

Same here, mine is in a garage locked to a work table (not fixed but would be a mission to take the table with) and then car behind it.

But if they want it they will come and get it as numerous amounts of CCTV footage has shown

Criminals are becoming more brazen.

Consider installing a "roller shutter" contact onto your gate and wiring it up to your alarm, If anyone attempts to force the gate open at least you'll be alerted

Wasn't your garage door wired to your alarm system so that when it opens the alarm goes off?

Off topic but the fuckers stole 2 jet skis on a trailer 2  blocks from me in Roodepoort at 04:45 this morning. Jumped the gate then cut the lock and disengaged the gate motor then broke open a car and pushed that out of the way and pulled the trailer out by hand. They then waited a few minutes for their driver with a white Quantum to arrive and towed it away. The same three were spotted and also recorded on cctv close to the house at 03:00 in the morning a few days ago but a neighborhood patroller spotted them and they ran for it.

And then I have clients that cancel insurance cover on bikes, boats, caravans etc as "we not using it and it is safely stored in garage/carport behind locked gates" Yeah right...

and then MURPHY  :joker:  enters the scene....

BTW - gisteraand 'n buurman (2 plaase weg) se BoF uit sy sitkamer uit gesteel.
Lektriek heining, kameras en alarmstelsel is baie "proffessioneel" omseil.

Die stories raak nou soos tracker system sindikate.

I think we all could agree that the thieves are very good at what they do and "professional" if one could call it that. I think we also have a fairly good idea where the bikes end up after being taken.

What I would like to know is how they target the bikes. Some bikes are stolen by opportunistic individuals, but to break a gate, move a car out of the way and then take the bike says that they were specifically after that bike. So how do they know that bike is in the garage and what they need to do to bypass the beams and alarm....

How or where do these syndicates get there intell from?

What I've heard is that they use a so called space blanket to stop alarm "eyes" from picking up the movement.

@Slaaiblaar you should be able to tell?

On that TV program with Adam and JAmie,,,,,,,,,,Mythbusters? They once showed that if you use an ordinary bed sheet and advance slowly towards the eyes, even ones in a corridor for example, that you can beat the eye fairly easily

Not all passives are equal....this is what jou must remember. You get what you pay for. Passive come in all different shapes and focal patterns. Some 90° some 180°. Beams are a point to point laser/led light transmitted from transmitter to receiver.

Passives can be bypassed by crawling or moving very slow. Beams can be bypassed by avoiding the invisible lines, like in movies.

Garage door and gate switches can not be bypassed...if wired correctly.

A mix of all above is the best way to go.

Emergency blanket is BS.

Every person with alarm should test it atleast once a week. Then a gate motor is not a lock, it open and closes gates. Wire your IR beam at gate to your alarm. Using normally open point. If wire is cut or power is lost it will sound an alarm.

Yup, he is really down.

Went visit him yesterday, did not sleep at all prev night. Looked like bum, unshaven and still in pajamas, and that was @ 14h00...

His bike was treated like baby, always spotless clean.
