IF your bike ever gets nicked, the first reaction is often to tell as many people as possible, so they can keep an eye out for you.
And now the ACU, British bikesport’s governing body, is providing a web-based noticeboard to let the whole world know your nicked machine is out there.
The aim is to stop stolen road bikes being off-loaded to racers.
The ACU’s Kevin Tubby said, "Stolen bikes can end up on our circuits and we are trying to put a stop to it. This way someone can look to see if a bike has been registered with us as stolen."

A new Rider Theftline has also been set up by the Motorcycle Industry Association, which offers a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the conviction of gangs of thieves. The number to call is 0870-444-8448. Go on, grass ’em up now!
