Up until recently there was some sort of loophole or weakness in the UVIP system, where somehow stolen bikes were brought in from Quebec, and were legitimately registered - for a period of time, til discovered. The true crooks were long gone before that happened to a hapless owner of a bike, now out his cash AND bike.or u can just use the UVIP which is more accurate and has a bigger database.
I thought that too...but hopefully better judgment comes into play.Pretty easy for SOB's to put perfectly good VIN's into this database. To all who have posted their VIN# in a For Sale thread, FYI.
There's bound to be some loser out there with the time on his hands to do this.
What is with all the stolen bikes these days? espically this week.
How would i prevent my bike from being stolen. obviolsly the bike alarm isn't working. Is there some kind of wheel locks or ignition kill that theives can't hack?
I wound't mind paying $500 as long as it is 95% theft proof.. well nothing is going to be 100% theft proof
