Originally posted by Monty Guido, mate of mine did that about 35 years ago, got fed up with local kids/scroats bending the aerial on his old MK11 Jag. Wired up a trembla coil to an ignition coil and all the external metal bits, anyone touched his car got 40,000 volts up their arm. Local copper told him to remove it otherwise he would have to nick him, said it could give some old lady a heart attack if she touched it. In South Africa they have "anti hijack" devices that fire flames out from under the car doors-now there's an idea.
And the flame thrower is legal - the chief of police has one!!! Now I need one for my van some little Bleep Bleeps trashed it and nicked my tools the other night
Sorry to hear about the break in Karen, reckon you should fit one of those flame throwers to your van and roast the scrotts
Donnington, Brands Hatch....gee guys, you should ride up as a group, select one member as a designated guard, have him stay out of site but in site of the group bikes, and give him a two-way so he can call in the cavalry when one of those scrogs starts to meddle with a bike. Either that or have Ducati provide a Duck only parking spot with a couple of roving guards not too shy to ask questions like "do you have the key to this Monster", "Can you show me your registration" of anyone who comes in to the area during the race. Then he can call the cavalry. Luckily, I live in Japan where the theft problem is nowhere near as bad as it is in Europe or the States. In NYC you have to carry a chain and lock assembly that weighs as much as the MTB you want to protect!
I got on my bike after work one evening and found the tax disc holder stalk had been nearly broken in two. The security hex bolts prevented the lowlifes from simply stealing the disc, so they thought they'd break it off. Must have been interrupted in their efforts. Are you allowed to use a holder made out of something like cadmium? That way they get a nice dose of heavy metal poisoning for their efforts!
