Well-said and motherf***ing true. Just another reason why insurance is one of the best legal rackets around.

Of course, some guys take this practice a bit too far.

Oh hell yeah.


Awesome for single guys. I'd have a sign above my bike to inform visiting women: "Warning, I love this bike more than you."

The guy with the bike in his bed. I love it!

Sorry to hear that some douche bags tried to take your bike.

The same could be said for single women and the guys visiting them. Heck, I'm not even single and it applies.

Go with a disc lock if you don't have the cash to buy a small shed, or one of those fold out from the wall bike storage deals.
The lock will at least start making some noise and possibly drive them off.
Get full coverage insurance... yeah it won't pay you all the money, blood, sweat and tears you put into it, but you will at least be able to buy part of a newer one.
If they want your bike, they are going to get it, even if they have to take you off of it first.

Yeah... lucky the off duty cop was there to help.
I always carry (concealed carry license), and most likely when he dropped his head to pick up the bike, I would have (taken) it back, along with his weapon.
If his buddy had hoped off to help, then it would have turned ugly for them.
Brazil is a lawless place, the Olympics are going to be full of news of people getting robbed and or killed while being robbed.
Best thing though, if they don't shoot you right off the bat... and you have video running, is simply to let them have it, and walk away with your hands in the air.
Here in the states , your bike will be more likely stolen if you keep it outside, unsecure. Best things are the screaming disc locks and the full covering lockable tarps or a disc lock under a locking tarp. If they cannot roll it, and there are only two, they will most likely just kick it in frustration and leave.
Make it a challenge for them to steal and they will more likely just pass it up and go to the next guys bike.

In most countries other than the US, the police in those countries aren't nearly as handicapped as ours are here. In this country, the criminals, even those actively causing harm/death to others, seem to have more rights than their victims or the police do. If a US cop had done this here, he'd be in the papers for "murdering" a minority who was innocent and defenseless and used unnecessary force etc etc. Even in many Western European countries, their cops don't screw around and don't have their hands tied behind their backs the ways ours do here. For example, in some of those countries there are random checkpoints where a cop holds out a sign and you have to stop. If you don't, there's a guy with an anti-material rifle posted up a ways that'll disable the vehicle and now you get the opportunity to get pulled out of the vehicle and the officers will get their clubbing on for daring to run. In Japan, just loitering and minor crimes can often find you getting beat with a baton and the shit kicked out of you for being dumb enough to be committing a crime. The ass beatings are considered part of the lesson and whacking a criminal here and there an overpopulation control. Our current system has prison designed as a rehab facility with death row being a form of social retribution and deterrent but doesn't seem to be working as well. Many criminals know that the law is more relatively on their side and so long as they don't attempt to kill a cop, they'll be fine. Hell, if they get an overzealous cop who gets too physical, they have a chance to get off clean so you commonly see many criminals as a last ditch effort try to bait cops into a physical confrontation so they could use a police brutality defense later on.

As far as Brazil and the Olympics are concerned, you're going to see their military and police force out in full force in that city with armed escorts for the athletes as well as near marshal law in the city proper. While there may be some minor thefts here and there, those criminals who specialize in the more brutal or dangerous crimes like outright armed robbery, muggings etc and probably going to lay low for the few months the Olympics are in town and then it's business as normal once everyone leaves. This is a huge source of national pride so you will actually see the government stepping up it's game in full force and I don't think a criminal in their right mind would even poke their head out during this period unless they're one of the crazy types who will use this time as an attempt to protest. I already expect there to be major purges by military and police forces months before the Olympics to try and clean out crime by any means possible well before the Olympic committee and the rest of the setup staff even get there.
