May has a Solution for Motorcycle Theft

Motorcycle theft is a growing thing, but it has been happening for a long time. Maybe the punishments aren't enough?

James May seems to have the right idea though as he proposes a great solution for it.... think it's too drastic?

"we must deal with the problem of bike thieves at its source, by killing them."

I agree and having a armed drone protect my bike is probably the best way. My weaponized drone of choice you ask? ....


If the warning shots don't scare 'em.... I think you can figure out the rest

...... I need me one of those holy cow!!!

See... if you're gonna get rid of the motorcycle thieves... might as well have fun whilst doing it right? Pretty sure after the warning shots though, they'd have to be real gutsy and stupid to continue to try haha

Did that thing self-destruct at the end?! I didn't hear any shots go off!

Well technically he's not wrong and it may be a more efficient deterrent for the average thief. But I'll stick to the good old hidden GPS tracker.

I think it'll be a big deterrent to be honest. But I doubt it'll ever come to pass so.. like you said, the GPS tracker is essentially going to be the best thing we can go for.

Or those accessories that shock the heck out of them, I don't think if it just applies to the grips or what.

Where you park can make all the difference, sometimes I pay for parking where they have an attendant. That $5 or whatever it is you pay is worth the ease of mind compared to parking on the street where a thief can be mistaken for the owner and no one bats an eye.

It's definitely worth it to pay the extra bit when trying to seek protection. On site security and attendants that walk around is always helpful.
