Got 3 of my bikes stolen from palm harbor Florida.

2019 yz85
2014 yz85
2014 crf450

Really want the 19 85 back, should be easy to spot if someone is selling. Number is 727-204-0175

Also, any suggestion on security companies? And prices I can expect to pay? Happened in the middle of night and I didn’t wake up.

2 of the bikes were chained together and they dragged them off that way. So want to do alarm, and chain them to the ground for now on. Any suggestions on chaining to ground? Thinking drill hole, insert some type of eye bolt, then concrete in?

Going to start doing that I think, atleast for the mean time till I get complacent again.

Tips on eye bolts in the concrete anyone? Looking to him Home Depot shortly and trying to put a list together

How did they get in the garage?

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

I haven't sold any of my bikes yet but if I ever do I'm going to say meet me at the police station parking lot. A lot of police stations have dedicated Craigslist areas in their parking lots now.

Sorry to hear - that really sucks

Sure sucks that we live in a world where we have to chain our bikes to your garage floor at your own home. Hope you get your bikes back. Maybe get a dog. I have a 100 pound German Shepherd that is a pretty good deterrent.

Man that is a major bummer. I will keep my eyes out for them!

As far as security, check into PC Security http://www.pcsecurity-fl.com/ . Thats actually Paul Currie company.

I wouldn’t recommend that. They can be pulled out and jostled loose. Good for keeping equipment bolted to the floor from moving, but if someone wants to move it, they could shake it loose and yank it out, plus if they bring tools, they could take out the bolt that screws into it.

I’d recommend the pulling pot as above, or cut a 1’x1’ square and lay a piece of rebar and mesh, with the rebar being partially exposed in the middle and recessed in the floor that you can chain to. Won’t be able to pull that out or cut it without a shit ton of noise and time.

If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.

Bolt cutters can just snip the chain. Chains just keep honest people honest. A good insurance policy and an alarm system is probably the safest bet.

Take it to the limit, one more time!

Ya, I hear ya. Just trying to slow them down.

Will be taking wheels off, and alarm system is already scheduled. Had I taken these two steps, probaly 95% chance bikes would still be there.

I have 17 cameras but the best thing I bought was these 10$ motion sensors off Ebay. I put one on each corner of my property and inside each gate. There is a few bright or loud reciever alarms that can be placed around your house to notify you. The best part is when the motion sensors detect something on your property a blue laser beam shines across parameter corner to corner and the intruder knows someone has been notified before they get 5 feet on my property. Then I look at cameras and if they are dumb enough to keep coming I decide if I want to put the red dot center mass.

I don't have to be as smart as you hope to be some day anymore. wink

That’s pretty cool. Do you get many false alarms caused by raccoons, deer, coyotes, etc,?

Haven't seen expandable rivets for a window.

I do have a large window in the garage you can see in the pic. On my shopping spree today at Homedepot i was planning on a 2x6 and screw it into the block walls with concrete anchors to slow anyone down exiting that way.

I do but having the cameras help that. Here is the cheap sensor on Ebay. It doesn't seem like much but I was surprised how well they work. An add pops up on FB for these exact things for like $99.99 regularly.

Sucks to hear man, will keep my eyes out on FB and craigslist and at the local tracks. I'm in Sarasota.

Good luck.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

Sucks man, I saw your post on FB you're friends with my friends. I've been meaning to buy these disc alarms from PJ he said they are super loud if you just bump it. Photo

Wire rope is very difficult to cut with a bolt cutter. It just spreads out in the jaws. You have to use an abrasive wheel. (grinder) (noisy)
