    Fortunately for that person I am an honest person and left it alone. I did think on how easy it would be to find it a new home without notice or witnesses.

    Dude, they're just over at McD's gettin a big mac and and a chocolate shake. Don't harsh the urge to splurge on the super size!

    Honestly, I see this all the time at the U where I work. It's sad, but some bikers just don't have the brains when locking their ride. It's almost asking for it.....maybe it's just that, a trap set by the po. Honestly, there are many thieves that would just take the tires or cut the cable and not realize if they just spent some more time doing squats in gym class they can take it all.
    No fuss with the MUSS

    derp

    I work at a shop in a fairly well-to-do part of town, and folks tend to be pretty clueless about locking their bikes up. We're primarily a roadie shop, and most roadies don't bother with locks. Too heavy. On the chance I've had a customer looking for a lock, I generally steer them away from the teeny braided cable many-colored locks and into something a little more stout, and then I spend some time demonstrating proper locking technique. A lot of people have NO IDEA.

    I also try to educate a little bit about what makes a high theft risk area and a low theft risk area. Again, something a lot of people never think about.

    I try. But sometimes there's not much I can do.

    What would be funny is to lift it off but leave it leaning against the post. Then take up a surveillance position to insure its safety from theft just to see the owner's response (video optional).

    I felt safer well locked up next to a nice bike or three with the smallest combination cable locks. A half inch vinyl covered steel cable and a D lock versus something I could kick open. Of course that was before Nicads and Li-ion angle grinders and volume (big van) bike thieves. Now they might just attract the thieves to take mine too. "Hey thieves! Over here! A nice collection!" One thing about the small percentage of riders here: not much of a market.
