    Not a good day :(

    Well I woke up this morning to find some low life has broken into my garage!

    2 decent mountain bikes gone, socket set various tools and drill all disappeared. Mille is still there in her paddock stands but they have had a to at the ignition so looks like I need a complete lock set but other than that she's untouched thank god.
    Just worried that they have had a good look around now and worried they might come back, other that my big burley chain what else could I do? I'm thinking perhaps I could take the wheels off and stash them in the house good idea? I guess it would atleast slow them down if they have to carry the bastard.

    Pissed off is not the word.

    P.s anyone got a completed lock set for sale ?

    Scum bags mate. Get the biggest chain you can find and put it through a floor/wall anchor block. Sell them on ebay for 20 quid. Some are recognised by insurance companies as well.

    I'm going to try ebay today and get a lock set because I don't want to have an odd key. Also half odds have an offer on this weekend socket sets are half price so might go get one. Deffo gonna beef up security it's a rented house so can go mad but a new garage door is going to be fitted. Also some lights etc i used to fit alarms and CCTV in pervious life so I will see what the landlord will let me do.
    Standby for post on how to replace locks lol

    Bastards. You're probably right in assuming they'll be back unfortunately. Removing the wheels is a good start, I've found two noisy, alert, 45kg+ dogs help too.

    I've got a complete lock set on Ebay at the moment, assuming yours is a Gen 1? Aprilia RSVR RSV Mille TuonoComplete Lock Set Ignition Seat Fuel Cap | eBay Say 60 delivered?

    yeah tools you build up over years and take them for granted when they are there the moment they are gone you know you'll need them.
    my sheds such a mess they would have trouble finding mine not that i have a big tool kit but enough for what i need.

    good luck beefing up the locks etc ...my mate fitted 2 lengths of scaffold tube bolted/locked to the walls inside the garage 2 foot and 4 foot off the floor so even if the shits managed to get in they couldn't manhandle his bikes out.
