    Give the (hopefully out-of-town) thief a prize! One less obnoxious sound system to thump along the street.

    National Bike Registry is a good and inexpensive program–they even have a family plan. One of my grandkids got her bike stolen a number of years ago, and it was recovered at a flea market.

    That won’t help with subwoofers, though. And maybe, as BC says, we are better off!
