    I'm probably a bit too antsy about it, but I'd leave the key in one night and wait nearby.

    If I have to leave my bike somewhere I don't like, I put an empty holster on the seat. I carry it for cheap inurance. People will walk a wide circle around your bike if they have no idea who's armed and watching them. I don't carry the gun, just a yard sale holster and it works amazingly well
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    My lock looks exactly the same but not from someone trying to steal. I tried to put the key in the lock while talking to someone and not looking where i pushed the key. The plastic breaks very easy. You may have done it yourself without noticing it.

    Not in my opinion. If the lock looked liked a screwdriver had been hammered into then yes - it would have been an attempted theft.

    Better put a nice thick chain thru your wheels with the biggest lock you can find. You can also put a nice big lock on your rear sprocket but just don't forget about it being there....lol. They see your chain/lock set up and they will look for easier prey.
