Those jerks are all over. Years ago I rode up to Monterey for the GP, then afterwards I went up north to ride some of the roads. I was staying at a pretty nice hotel, so I thought.
I get up the morning I was heading back to SD, only to find some douche bag had taken my Throttle Meister off the right side of my VFR ! I was totally bummed and pissed.
Crazy thing was on the ride back down, I did not notice any more vibes or buzzing. It still pissed me off, wish is was just a bar end rather than the lock that they got. Sometimes shit just happens.
