If it’s not nailed down, someone will take it.

So nail down your motorcycles, Chicago.

  1. I hate this town.

  2. Unfortunately motorcycle theft is not new to Chicago as it's very easy for a group of thieves to lift them into a van or truck. My friend and I both had our bikes stolen in Old Town back in the early 2000's when they were parked on the street for a single night because our normal parking spot was inaccessible.

  3. Hopefully the thieves are stealing the obnoxiously loud motorcycles I hear on Lake Shore Drive.

  4. Hope they didn't get the cute little Triumph motorcycle on pinegrove north of addison. Every time I walk past it I'm tempted to ditch my car and buy one.
