engineering solutions

omg, as someone else said it now 40 odd years since someone walked on the moon,  like i think triumph and all the other bike manufacturers should have a good look at themselves and sort out motorbike security, both mechanical and electrically, before spending time reducing 250g from a swingarm or getting 1 extra horse power out of the engine.

Typical PC police

Twenty years ago we got broken into at work.

The police said "don't move anything, were on our way to gather evidence".

NOBODY ever turned up!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If this had been an Asian shop keeper with a BNP march outside his premises they'd have been round in three and a half seconds flat.

999 is and always has been for situations where life and limb, not property, is endgangered. IIRC the original advice was to call 999 "if the man next door is murdering his wife".

I commented earlier but now I've watched the footage.

One hour spent faffing about in a dead end under a camera! Amateurs, and lucky to get away with it!

Years ago my padlocked and alarmed bike disappeared from the street overnight, never to be seen again. Someone said to me afterwards, "Never have anything nice around here, someone will always want to nick it." (I moved away shortly afterwards.) The Triumph's owner seems to have made that same "mistake," judging by the criticisms.

Just disgusting as it seems like the culprits and other bike thieves can do what ever they want as the police couldnt be bothered and a mate one road away had his biked nicked, the cops just said heres a case number and you can claim on your insurance my mate just wanted his bike, they said you wont see it again and no one even turned up to look at the crime scene etc. mmm leaves one thinking theres little hope really.

It's funny

How the police pull you over whilst riding your own bike and give you a ticket for, let's say, a smaller number plate than the tv screen size one the authorities insist you have. Then to go and give the usual "if your bike was stolen how would be able to find yours.....?" Then to listen to people who say, "give the police a break, who do you call when you need help?" After reading this story and the comments it goes to show the lack of confidence in the police to catch thieves. The police themselves can be thanked for our increased insurance premiums due to the amount of theft and unrecovered stolen bikes.

also, why don't insurance companies supply trackers for free??? I'm sure they would save money then if the police CHOOSE to not recover the bike then they should be held accountable! its a sorry state of a country when you can't show thieves faces... perhaps there employer (errrmm sorry i mean benefit office) would be rather keen to stop supplying them with money. remote detonation would be a nice idea too whilst were at it.
