One PE175 stolen from home.

Pair of shoes stolen overnight from the motorcycle in Athens Greece. Looked inside panniers - broken into.

Backpack (with some food) stolen from the motorcycle (about lunch time - it had my food in it!) Thessaloniki Greece

Not off the bike but traveling Umm Hamburger ordered and paid for at Barkhut NT Australia (must have been eaten by someone else!)
That same morning breakfast missing from communal fridge Darwin NT... was not my day for eating.


Probably other stuff that I don't recall too. All in all ok, given the time and distances I've traveled.

Stolen from the front of my house. They got it through the pedestrian gate (don`t ask me how) and dragged it down the street, with the steering locked, into a local park. When they couldn`t hot wire it they kicked a fuel tap off and torched it. All this happened many years ago, but I would still kneecap those who did it if I found them.

it just goes to show: if somebody really wants something, they're going to take it no matter what.

Had more crap stolen in Germany than anywhere else. Countless things. Even had thieves break into, my car, figure out there was nothing there, and then smash the windows out of spite.

Stageside, nothing yet. Someone tried to get into the locked trunk of my Ural once. They fiddled with the lock and apparently gave up. Good thing they weren't smart enough to realize they didn't need to open the trunk lid to get in.

Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed by their drinking buddy.

Ridingdonkeys: I was extremely vulnerable for a long time in Germany (in intensive care) following an accident, with large amounts of valuables and cash on me. No one took anything, nor did I feel at any time they might.

I've had my garage broken into and tools stolen: never had anything taken off the bike/campsite itself.

Without getting into a flame war here, it wasn't the Germans I had issues with. I lived there for 5 years, fluent in the language, and made some great friends, and never had a single problem with a German. Every incident I had there was eventually traced back to immigrants. It seems the German sense of security created a breeding ground of opportunity for Turkish thieves. Most were caught, and I spooked a couple myself.

I work in the Nordic countries sometimes. They report the same thing (the locals are relatively unlikely to steal, which makes for lax security, which makes it an appealing destination for "visiting thieves" from elsewhere.

Nothing ever from a campsite, but once (maybe 1993??) had my helmet stolen from the mirror on my bike when parked at breakfast.

Well

On a bike trip to Copper Canyon I got pick pocketed in Chihuahua, MX when I was drunk out at 3am. I had already spent most of my money so they only got 200 pesos off of me. What can I say? When I am drunk, I make bad choices.

I had a motorcycle stolen within a block of the white house in 2006. Right next to a Metro stop. Cameras everywhere. I had a 4 hour window of when it happened. Reported it to the DC police and absolutely nothing ever came of it. Parked right next to much nicer bikes too.

I guess the thieves have it figured out that unless someone is killed (someone important) the police aren't going to look at footage. I mean, grand theft is still a felony right?
