Theft sucks and its a giant pain. Thankfully our insurance stepped right in and handled it very fast. Good luck
That make me sick. Even I don't have high price bikes, this is one
reason I placed my bike "racks" in the dinette area of the dutchman. Just worried about folks steeling them.
I feel much better with my trailer on the side of our new home vs having to store if with prior home offsite. I worried often and would drive by to make sure no evil person was up to no good.
