When you install the security camera... make sure your employees don't know about it.
ALWAYS stay safe

No one will know. I'm even having it installed at night after everyone has left.

From the second you posted this, I had a feeling it might be a Co-Worker or EX Co-Worker.

Good luck with the camera setup, I bought some that claimed color night vision to use around my garage and house after a car window got smashed, was a great picture during the day but totally sucked at night, I would have had to put spot lights were I wanted to see at night so I returned them. It was a 3 camera system with DVR.

16 years living in my house and no vandalism type stuff until the window and that was Holloween night, figured it was teens out for mayhem.

Nothing since then either.

I do have 1 color camera with built in mic hung at the peak of my garage looking down the side driveway so I can keep an eye out for the UPS man while tinkering in the garage, :lol: or if someone else walks up it during the day. Have it hooked up to a 13" TV.

Hope you catch the theif/vandal and break a few fingers on each hand before you turn them over to the cops.

I don't know officer it must have happened while he was trying to get away? :con:

I'm sure it won't happen again until a little time has passed. No big deal, I like my new mirrors better and have been looking for a reason to buy new ones anyway.

For deterrance, you better off if they all see the camera and know it is there.

I'm willing to risk it. I want to see this person go to jail.

Is it possible someone parked next to you? Maybe accidently hit and broke the mirror with car door and then tried to hide the evidence.

rog, can you post a pic of the new mirrors? I've got Arlen Ness ones, but all I get is a great view of my elbows. These ones look like they push out further. Can you comment on that, can you see behind you well?

BTW, after you get the guy stealing your mirror on video, he'll get probation - maybe. Make sure you lay a licking on him outside camera range or you could be the one getting charged!!

To answer your question Mopar, no I am certain it was womeone who works for me. I've had my jeep keyed and two tires slashed by one of my (now former) employees. I think I'm a fair generous manager, but I have no tolerance for lazy people, and that is the entire labor pool where I'm at. I bump heads with at least 5-10 employees every day. I always win, but, oh I'll just shut up. Club, I'm too stupid to post pics on this site, the one in my sig was done by the Great Grazz, but you can see pics of them on my myspace page. On the last note, if he or she loses their job it will violate their probation, since most of my employees are on work release from the county jail. Cheap labor and people who really need their job. I'll take a couple of slashed tires and broken mirrors to save the kind of money I'm saving on my p&l.

How do the new mirrors look on the bike? They look very nice in the ad.
