Still don't have any plans in the near future to go to any shows.

I think you're overthinking it. Just go and have fun!

If you're really really worried then just sit in front of your bike all day and keep an eye on it... that would be NO FUN though. That, or just leave it at home and attend the show without a bike.

Here's one of our local Gary Turner shows. (Find Gary if you can!!) It's a small, tight knit community and everybody knows who owns what. I don't think anyone has ever had a bike stolen at the BMX mecca:

I was at the show where the SE in the first pic got stolen... in fact my bike was 3 away from his.

In that particular case, show bikes were in one part of the lot, while the swap was in another, so for most of the day I couldn't see my bike. It was also in a strip mall type parking lot with other businesses so lots of people were coming over to check out the bikes. Guy basically jumped on the bike and took off down the street, by the time anyone realized what happened he was too far gone neutral

Re: Bmx Show's who goes to them.....And how safe are your bike's there !

Been doing BMX shows for the better part of 20 years with no problems. But I'm not stupid about it either. I always bring my 15 foot plastic coated steel cable with a loop swedged at each end and a padlock. If I feel the need or I know my bikes will be out of my sight for an extended time I just run the cable through all the rear wheels and lock 'em together as a deterrent to the unscrupulous. wink
