I was trying to get the old Augie thread on locked up bike but that thread was closed ....
I'm not trying to hijack this thread but:
My bike experience took a hit this week.
Bike (Mountain 26") was stolen at The Orleans probably in the late afternoon when there is movement near the bike storage area near the back entrance near the poker room.
Ten ply steel cable lock cut and left. Cut looked like as if it was done by cutters in one slice. In otherwords very professionally.
The Orleans security were on the scene before me. A security report with them and the next day with LVMetro at the substation on Las Vegas Blvd.
What I have learnt from the experience:
Continue to buy bike as cheap as possible that will get eventually stolen if I'm going to ride to the Casinos around the strip. This bike like 2 others that have died here in LV were bought at Flea Market at Pecos. I'll be there Sunday....
Cable locks are not good enough. U-lock is a must and maybe at places like The Orleans 2 are needed.
Change the place of where I lock the bike regularly even when you're trying to play for that all elusive Bad Beat Jackpot. (BTW it was hit yesterday for $85,000+)
Continual learning experience here in LV: ~-$80 since I lost some accessories on the bike)
