The damage to the building is worth more than the bike, I'm just blown away by how aggressive these crooks have gotten.

Interesting. I'm with Palmer Motorsports in Denver, NC. At 2:50am we were robbed.
They got away with 2, 2018 Husqvarna TC50's and a 2018 TC85 big wheel.
If anyone has any info on this, we'd appreciate it. 704.400.4453.
I'll check how far the towns are apart.

Put all dirt bikes on display with the front wheel removed. Keep them under lock and key in a separate part of the building. Front wheel gets installed only after sale is complete. This would deter theft. Maybe not eliminate it but, sure as heck would make it harder to smash and grab them.

Cameras might help ID a face but 99% of the time they always use a stolen truck to do the crime and then ditch it.

This stealing shit is getting brazen! Smash and grab!

No offence intended but I think you guys are 15-20 years behind the curve with security.... Ram raiding has been common place in the UK for years, NO moto shops dare have a shop front without protective steel cages bracing the shop front, bollards to stop vehicles getting to the shop etc, alarms, cameras, bikes chained up inside... A guy near me in an up market neighbourhood recently had his garage door torn off and 2 bikes taken on a SUNDAY AFTERNOON while he was out racing another bike, while a lot of people were around, neighbors etc... I can't believe it when I see photos of your moto shops with big glass windows etc, the bikes wouldn't last 1 night over here, if I have to leave my bike in my van overnight on my drive way for an early start, I sleep in the van.....
Hope the Honda and the Huskies above are found, it pisses me off how hard I have to work to afford MX bikes and some low life's just steal them.... Rant over.
