    Bike stolen

    Got up this morning to go to work and yep my bike was gone...... Instant rage mode activated phone 999 to report it and yep you've guessed it not interested surprise surprise.

    So get undressed from bike gear, had a little cry then thinks I'll just go for a quick walk around the roads to see if I can find anything, Me thinking it's a heavy bike hopefully they gave up it. 

    Low and behold I find it yeah !!!! the scrot that stole bit of more than he could could chew. Dropped it on the road to local tennis center, gent opposite heard and saw them, phone 999 and reported it a 03:00 this morning.

    So at least I've got my baby back thankfully

    Good news that you recovered it !  Any damage to the plastic, etc.  Too bad they didn't use the side stand.

    I think I'll start using my steering head lock.  I never had used that before on any of my bikes.  Maybe it would be a good idea.  Thanks for posting.

    Good news indeed. This might sound like overkill. My Trophy always has the steering locked, front caliper lock on and inside my locked large shed. I can't afford to replace it, what with all the extras I've fitted.

    Noggin :  More good news !!

    Hackle : So, how do you lock the front caliper ???

    All these measures slow them down but if they want it bad enough can't prevent a theft.  I guess the next level of security should be a video monitor to help identify the thief.

    Steering Lock - Always ON when the Bike is left.
    ( Just be careful not to turn the key to the next click / Battery Killing position ! )

    Disc Lock ( and a bright yellow coily reminder cable to the left handlebar ).

    Mammoth Thatcham approved chain & padlock through the back wheel and centre stand-
    additionally secured to a Ground Anchor when parked in my garage.

    I can also recommend these :

    Secure Auto Track

    Mind you - I do live in Birmingham !  :012:

    Good news, of course!

    Now my question is this:

    How did they make the engine work?

    First the cylinder of the ignition key locks the handlebar.

    Second, without a transponder chip in the key, they won't start the engine.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.
