    I'll keep an eye out Matt. That sucks! Maybe the insurance co will replace it with a SuperCal? =)

    I feel your pain!

    One of mine was stolen out of my garage about two weeks ago! I feel apprehensive about even opening the garage long enough to drive my Jeep out now!

    I did notice a couple of guys in a green Toyota 4 Runner sitting on my street, staking out my garage just two days ago. I walked around the corner and noticed them and they immediately drove off.

    Time to bring the bikes inside I guess.

    Good luck, I'll keep my eyes open for both of our rides.

    Yeah, check out this "alien's" encampment as a bike gets repoed. He's cleverly disguised himself.

    Bummer OC....

    I live in Aliso Viejo and I've seen guys drive around in a panel truck, checking side garage doors for easy access. One guy jumps out and checks the other keeps driving slowly. I work from my home office and heard them slow down and jiggle my side door. It was locked so they kept going. I now lock my bike in the garage and I hoping that's enuff (may or may not be). Anyhow, they would look like any other paint or construction crew, that's part of the problem. Hard to catch these guys unless your there.

    Good luck and if I see them again, I'll try to get a tag, but I bet they don't have one ....

    If you have seen them, why haven't you called the sheriff?

    bcs - what are you implying on that one ?

    I'm trying to help my neighbor out my friend and putting two and two together here after reading and speaking with many people in this area. If it happened again, I definately would, but wasn't exactly sure what was happening at the time.

    These guys move fast and, my guess is they don't want to fool around with locks and such. I'm gettting a big arse chain for my bike. Steal anything but my bike.

    Anyhow, I'll keep my eyes open and lets pull together constructively....

    Not implying anything, friend. But if I saw these guys cruising down the street and rattling doors I would be on the cell phone to 911 and I would make sure to get a license plate #.

    At work 2 weeks ago we had a guy stroll in off the street, walk around the office right past people, and steal an employees wallet. Part of the reason the guy is successful at this (the sheriff told us he's done this dozens of times to businesses in our area) is that nobody questions the presence of a stranger strolling around the office. I'm just saying that when we see suspicious stuff we need to do something about it.

    Good grief Howeler (and Reesh). I'm not a "tool" dude!

    I have a friend work who also got his bike stolen out of his open garage and a few days later while driving to work caught an "illegal" riding it. He confronted the thief and got his bike back.

    I realize that tweekers also steal things. My son got his baja bug stolen from out in front of his friends house in Encinitas. A month later my son and I went to San Felipe Mexico and repoed it.

    Oh, and a couple weeks ago, my motorhome was broken into and ransacked.... You know, I hate thieves!

    greatest ending to a vid ever. So sweet they got the rig back. my only hope was they first set up that dude by getting into a conversation, telling him they like his bike, ask him where he got it, and then start ramming all sorts of tech Q's at him about the build/components/etc. see what a d!ckhead he is and watch him squirm. then smack him down.

    Matt I hope your sit ends the same with return of bike.

    Isn't that Cam McCaul. I think it's him at least. Probably put into a new mtn bike video too.

    I was thinking the same thing. Sure looks like him.

    the same folks who hate "illegal immigrants" so much are the ones that love to eat cheap carne assada burritos, fish tacos; also they are the ones that hire these same "illegals" to do their dirty work, landscaping, to pick vegetables and fruits in our farms and to clean our bathrooms...

    Of course when something bad happens, why not blame the poor workers instead of some meth addicted white trash (which is probably much more likely to have stolen the bike in first place)...
