Motorcycle Thefts Drop

This seems like good news: The National Insurance Crime Bureau reported today that motorcycle thefts declined by 13% in 2009, with a total of 56,093 stolen last year, compared to 64,492 the previous year.  The most popular bikes for thieves were Hondas, with 13,688 reported thefts, or 24.4% of the total.

In a blinding glimpse of the obvious, NICB reported that the months with the fewest thefts were December, January, and February.

Well, I guess if you’re stealing a bike in January, you want to ride bad.
