Why don't they setup a Sting Operation.Put some bait out and lie and wait.Do this a couple of times.When the guys are caught red handed,you don't pat them on the head.There are ways.

I think if you tap, you must double tap....

Is it bikes in general that gets stolen, or are they after specific brands or models?

Dunno. But, where as crime was specialized in the past, it is not necessary anymore. The investigation capacity of the saps is so low, they can't even catch starting criminals anymore

They required a bike for a kid who wants to practice working on bikes rather than ride bikes.   >:D

Are the thieves/stolen bike buyers able to somehow get the bikes started using some magic?
I had to replace a key through BMW, that was a mission on its own. Firstly I had to report the key missing to the Parts department, who required me to provide a copy of my ID, which was then matched to the VIN on record. This was to prove I'm the owner of the bike.
Then the keys are ordered from Germany. The current coding is deactivated, so the spare key also can't be used to start the bike. When the new set arrives, coding is redone to match the new set of keys.
So, are the bikes started using screwdrivers?
I'm curious to learn the work around, should I loose another key!

Guys, plenty bikes are stolen in Dullies almost every damn weekend one gets stolen. There was recently one found in the bush nearby that had been meticulously stripped, all the screws and parts put neatly into small organised containers ready to be shipped out of the area. The biggest problem is that the people aren't warned by some of the venues, they scared they chase potential clients away, and those that do warn motorcyclists do it halfheartedly instead of insisting that bikes are locked up inside. There is a strong suspicion that some of the local cops are in on it too. So beware if you stay over!
