DC area Bikers

Wanted to check and see if anybody has ever had a problem with leaving there bike out in the open. I'm looking at apartments in the Crystal City area and was just wanting some information. Any advice would be cool.

TIA

i know of one S that was stolen from DC. i think vandalism would be more of a concern. there are several garages in the crystal city area, maybe you could get a space in one.

I moved from the area to Philadelphia seven years ago, but between 1987 and 2000, I lived in Northern Virginia and Capitol Hill, and parked lotsa BMWs on the street:

K75S
R100RS
K100LT
K1100RS

Always kept 'em covered, and locked the cover beneath them. Nobody ever messed with 'em, except one time someone stole the cover off the K100LT when I didn't lock it down overnight.

Out of sight, out of mind, I guess.

Oh, I did have a few license tags stolen on Capitol Hill, until I switched to leaving a color copy on the bike while parked.

Best,

Dana
