And yes, do NOT leave anything in a vehicle or on a bike. Theft and car break ins are at an all time high in the Bay Area right now. Buy you probably know that............
Holy Crap!!!

You mean to tell me that people are breaking into cars… In OAKLAND!!

I'm sorry. But if this needs to be a public service message and you don't know this by now, I'm surprised you've lasted this long in life….

You know... there ARE different areas of Oakland which have different rates of crime. And there is no neighborhood anywhere in the Bay Area that is immune to crime, not even your snug, smug suburb over the hill.

I wanted to let people know that the Lanesplitters, if approached from the North, seems to be in a nice business district, but if you go 3 blocks further to the South -- across 580 -- it's sort of a shitty neighborhood.

Oakland = Higher Crime at baseline: No questions there...

2013
30-40% increase in theft and burglaries.
FBI data places #1 in highest robbery rate in the Nation.

I have personally had a GPS unit taken out of my car - in my driveway, when it was hidden in the center console 2 months ago. I usually leave my tank bag on the bike, but now take it inside with me. I also use one of these for my helmet.

+1 - nice large group and the pizza was pretty dang good there. Kevan and I discussed perhaps making October "East Bay ADV Octoberfest" month - there are two good places to choose from:

Speisakammer (Alameda) www.speisekammer.com/
Brotzeit Lokal (Oakland Estuary) www.brotzeitbiergarten.com/

I'd really like to do Brotzeit Lokal on the water, ya know....

Do you think October 8th or 9th would work? On the 8th if you bike to the place and wear your helmet inside, you get a buck off your beer. They don't call out "peddle" bikes....;)

Yeah, you're right. Guess I'll leave the St Pauli Girl costume at home.
