tonight when i got back home i discovered that the cover on the ducati had been moved and the alarm "tell tale" reported the the shock sensor had been activated.
obviously, given the theft of the previous 748 i'm ultra, ultra paranoid, so i checked the CCTV footage of the back yard. and what do i see on the tape but some shaven headed bloke circling the bike, examining the chains, lifting up the cover etc before walking off up the passageway. so immediately i get on the blower to the direct line of the police officer who was assigned to smooth things over with me following the waves i made when the police didn't investigate the aforementioned theft of my previous 748.
however, as the phone was ringing and ringing it dawned on me. that bloke.....he..... looks like...... hold on..... it is. it's me. thankfully the policeman didn't answer his phone, otherwise i might just have been the only person in the history of crime to report himself for the attempted theft of his own property.
the cause of the tampering? the wind.
