    Well, I never experience that, but last week maybe, my friend lost his bike in front of their house. and he wanted to cry but still managed to control his self. we use our motorcycle to look around hoping to find it, but still no result.

    I am yet to experience my bike being stolen but some of my friends' bikes were stolen back when we were still in university. They used bike locks but somehow they were still stolen. it was frustrating for them and they weren't able to join our bike group for a few weeks.

    I think if that was stolen inside the university, the university should responsible for that. How about the CCTV on that area? Do you all think that the suspect was student also in that university?

    The university is large and anyone with an ID can enter the university campus, and we didn't see the bikes after, nor did other bike theft cases happen afterwards, so I doubt if students were responsible for it. Also, this was a time when CCTVs weren't still available in every corner of the university.

    I grew up in the city where crime of burglary and stealing are common so I am extra careful with my bike. I don't have a lock on my bike and that is the best security because I wouldn't leave it. In fact, I don't remember leaving my bike in any public place. Especially in the city, you cannot trust the bike racks for parking unless there is a security guard on watch otherwise the probability of losing your bike is high.

    Yeah, it's really hard to trust the people right now, we should always aware to our belongings. The CCTV helps a lot, but the problem they know how to hide their face, and most of the time, no one watching the CCTV while the incidence stll happening.

    I had an incident where someone almost stole my bike, Thankfully I locked it up and he was not able to get it. Now I'm much more very careful of my bike.

    I never experience it and I wish it won't happen to me at all. But how does it feel to lose your bike? I think it is kind of something half in your self is missing, especially if it is really a buddy to you like a family member dog that died.

    Fortunately, I haven't experienced having my bike stolen. It's good that I live in a peaceful town. The crime rate here is low and I get to leave my guard down without worry. Although I sometimes hear news about a bike being stolen. The good thing is it is nowhere near where I live.
