    MY LA Bike got nicked this morning

    whilst i was shopping in caarefour for less than hour some low life scum thieved my bike that was locked against the railings, just thought I wud let you all know, what with traffic signs and manhole covers being stolen, be extra vigilant with your own belongings.

    so what do u think i should do? inform the filth?? go uot and buy another bike straightaway???

    anyone know where you can buy second hand bikes here???

    thanks for reading and i dont need any sympathy, I only wrote this as a warning to others.

    Cheers

    In Bangkok the thieving cvnts will knock off anything, I gave up riding a pushbike there because the pricks would knock it off, a mate cured the problem by buying the dorkiest bike he could, pink with a shopping basket on it. No one knocked that off.
    Even good crash helmets locked onto the bike they will cut the straps to knock off the helmet.
    Telling the pigs is just a waste and you gotta pay 400 Bt to lodge a complaint.
    They won't do a dammed thing the lazy useless cnts.

    I brought a Filmez helmet with me - a top class helmet but scratched to buggery and looked like shite. Never got stolen. However I've had two flash harry/go faster striped 2000B Honda helmets nicked in the last year.

    Going to see if I can get the Filmez refurbished.

    I had one Caberg $400 helmet stolen and 2 crappy cheap ones since then. One time they even replaced a 300baht helmet with an older police one and left it on my bike. A thoughtful thief?

    There was a police bike parked nearby. The expensive helmet was also nicked from my bike which was parked next to a police pickup.

    Well with the rising price of fuel, seems the latest trick in the Ratchada area is the old siphon the fuel trick. Only the pricks that did it to me broke off the cover thingo that covers the cap. Apparently there is a trade in them since they are getting damaged by people stealing fuel.

    Good job my spare wheel is in the boot then. My petrol cap lock is broken though and I have been wondering why I only get 5km/l in BKK, is that normal?

    Unfortunately not, it is a E30 318i with an M40 engine. Traffic in BKK is abnormally slow moving though and when I drive at night I do enjoy testing the rev limiter.

    Sorry to hear about your bicycle Blackie.I explained this thread to my wife and she told me what the local "farmer" thieves are stealing up here.Guard rails sections and giant industrial bolts (the kind that secure high-current electric cable towers to the cement footings).They turn-in this stuff as scrap metal for a few hundred baht. Nice.

    Carrefour has cameras. Perhaps this helps to find your friends. Never forget when a guy stopped me in LA at a traffic light with a gun and took my nice rental car.

    cheers john, the cam thing crossed my mind, but i fear it is futile.

    sorry to hear about the la thing, makes my incident seem trivial.

    I just got my bike siphoned this week! Bastards. Luckily, as I spluttered to a stop there was a shop with bottles of water/petrol. Unluckily, I didn't have any cash on me. Luckily he gave me credit. The bad and good side of living here.

    The LA thing is nothing special there. Just don't try to stick to your car

    But you are a customer at Carrefour. And from my experience they really care. So talk to them and try to find your friends on the video tape. Even if you might never get your bike again - you did something. Still better than nothing.

    I know! but i was surprised that you figured the brake calipers at about 2000baht were a good deal when the Yoshi tail pipe was prolly worth about 20,000 baht...

    A couple months back there was a string of Hilux Vigos that had their tailgates stolen at Udon's Chareonsri lot (behind soi farang) after dark. I've not checked, but evidently it's very easy to remove the entire tailgate with a simple wrench. Some scary shit...

    It takes seconds to cut through a padlock with bolt cutters

    if you are serious about locking it then you need a proper motorcycle style lock which can't be cut easily.
