Bloody assholes! It's everywhere man! I got woken up at 4 couple of nights back. Some guys on there way to work saw my work hilux standing with doors ajar in the street! Doorlock broken, ignition broken, dash panels removed. And this happened in a small town in Malaysia!

Apparently SFA Hilux is the most targeted vehicle  here.

A few things I think:
They targeted and had a plan, the buggers.
How did you notice and work out what's going on.
Maybe if you park the bike in with a car it'll be too hard, shouldn't have to do all this 😞

When my CB900 was stolen in Randburg, I cursed the neighbour's dog.  If only I had gone and checked.  I always consoled myself that if they were prepared enough to carry the bike over a car from the front of the garage, they might have been armed.

It is scary to know that there are "people" watching our everyday movements and that nothing, not you or your property, is safe.

I am glad that you still have your bike.  :thumleft:

Both my dogs sleep inside, but if someone is walking around in the yard they growl, as soon as the forkers start trying doors or windows they go into full bark mode. All perimeter lights go on and a beeper sounds - that usually does the trick, but after that speed dial the neighborhood watch who alerts the police. If they get inside, which hasn't happened yet, they will have to deal with Mess rs. Smith & Wesson.

Its shocking that we have to devise all these methods to protect what we work hard for, while others just take with impunity.

Get a Bull Terrier ( Vark hond) My dads Bakkie was stolen out of the yard and after that we got one and no one wanted to come in to the yard with that dog, she also didn't just eat anything, so they couldn't poison her

Yip, Varkhond (aka Chinese Racing Pig) are a serious deterrent, but they try to poison them if left outside at night, they will carry on trying different foodstuff to tempt the dog, and they don't really growl or bark, just jump straight in and bite/shred.

I lost Tin Tin my boully after the third poisoning....still gutted.

My dogs sleep inside, their job is simply to wake daddy who is packing years and years of vengeful thoughts just waiting to vent it on somebody who is brave enough to open that tap.
