It does not matter where you go or where you live, vandalism is a factor that takes place everywhere. This motorbike was the unfortunate victim in a night of vandalism in the city of Marseille in Provence, France as people stripped it clean.All that is left of this motorbike is the basic cut up wiring and the frame, and even parts of that have been beaten up. The seat, handlebars, tires, lights and all the other parts are probably all taken and resold on the streets or added onto other motorbikes that have also been stolen and rebuilt.Every city has areas that are full of thieves, drug users and drug pushers and where this motorbike was parked was one of those areas. Marseille in Provence, France is a very large city with the majority of the area of Marseille being extremely beautiful, full of life, fine dining establishments and many historic places to visit.It is everybody's wish that vandalism never happens to them, but unfortunately it is something that takes a lot of crime prevention to control every situation. Wherever you travel or even in at your own house, you should be protected the best that you can so that vandalism such as this can somehow be avoided.The easier that one lets themselves be the target of vandalism, the more likely it will happen to them. While traveling to big cities, be sure you find out the areas that you should not be around and keep to the better parts of each destination that you stop at.Vandalized Motorbike in downtown Marseille, Bouches du Rhone, Cote Bleue, Blue Coast, Mediterranean, Provence, France, Europe.
