True, i could picture 2 thieves of opportunity walking by a shiny new GT:
thief 1: "yo dawg lets steal that GT"
thief 2: "naww homie they were bought out by Walmart that bike aint nuthin"
thief 1: "aight then, lets go over to mlh122's house and try to steal the depth finder out of his boat and not succeed but just really screw it up so its depth is off by 12 feet and he runs aground and ruins the propeller"
sorry personal experience inserted in the hypothetical situation
