So last night I was in my usual teleconference marathon with the US (8pm - Midnight)
Wife out at circuits, as usual for Weds night. Girls tucked up in bed.
Dog starts going nuts about 9pm. Not unusual - I think "Foxes in back garden"
Few mins later door bell rings many times. It is my neighbour. He says "Can you check your bikes are ok? Think I just saw someone riding your Nicolai & pushing your HT down the road."
I check, they are kept in the house, out of sight in a cupboard off the kitchen. Open the cupboard and they are both gone.
Try to give chase in car but needless to say to no avail.
Bit freaked out that they had the sheer brass neck to walk into the house knowing someone was in, steal the bikes and then close up all the doors behind them. Had it not been for the neighbour I may still be none the wiser. I also think Weds night was no coincidence???
Bikes are insured and replacable. My big concern is family safety. How far will they actually be willing to go?
After our last theft (~ 6.5 years ago) our house is like Fort Knox over night & when we are out. Given they are in the house & out of sight I thought we would be ok whilst in the house. Upping the anti (whatever that will entail) through the day is not an appealling thought.
