Can't have been easy lifting a Trophy in through the side door of a van  !

Let's hope that they are caught soon and get everything they deserve !

Not mine but it makes you think twice about how you store your bike. The good news in the US is that Harley Davidson and large displacement sport bikes tend to be the targets of thieves.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Jaguar/Land Rover is apparently trying to make us and bicyclists more visible to drivers of their vehicles.  If they follow through on this I'll bet  some drivers will  scream bloody murder for a way to turn this distracting annoyance off!

Much as I hate nanny features in a car, I do like this one.  I try never to ride in the "blind spot"  but have to be there briefly when passing. Can't count the number of times I've blasted my horn at idiot cagers who drift from lane to lane thinking they are the only vehicle on the road
