The funny part was the guy wobbling off... he obviously had no idea how to ride the thing or that it was worth 6000 bucks! Drugged out thieves are generally not too smart.
There was a story around here last year, a local downhiller who competes in the world cup had his bike stolen out of a truck after a race in Ste Anne (Quebec).The thing is it was a prototype. THe guys tried to sell it on the net with a different paint job. DUHHHH. That's how they got caught.
You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.
