A motorcycle was recovered by Metropolitan Police after just 74 minutes of being stolen earlier this week, all thanks to the 'Bike Trac' security tracking device that was covertly fitted by its owner.

Recently, the Police inexplicably did not follow upon a reported stolen motorcycle, despite its Acutrac Locator tracking its whereabouts. When they finally did respond, some weeks later, they found not 1 but 9 stolen bikes and have since gone on to make an arrest. Better late than never eh?

We're excited to announce that the cover is off our latest project, the Stolen Vehicle Database. Like many of our members, we're infuriated with the number of bike thefts that take place and the complete lack of efficacy from the authorities. We think it's about time the biking community stood up to this and attempted to lower the number of bike thefts.

Measuring just 15cm x 10 cm x 5 cm, the new PAPS (Portable Asset Protection System) from Acumen is a very clever little box of tricks. It will alert you by SMS (a standard text message) sent to your mobile phone (and up to two others) if it detects movement, tilt, or a significant temperature change. Not only is the Acumen PAPS small, it is also light (less than 300 grams) making it truly portable, and with up to six months internal battery life you could even take it on holiday with you to protect your bike when parked in a garage, van, tent, etc.

Two priceless, multi-award winning, custom motorcycles also known as “Art Bikes” were stolen from a service area on the A1 on the 23rd May. The two machines, known as Psy-Bawg and Barnstormer, are extremely well known to the international motorcycling community; as some of the world’s best examples of one-off custom engineering, having won numerous awards for design and construction across Europe and beyond. The unique nature of the one-off hand made components makes both motorcycles very easily identifiable and totally worthless to anyone wishing to sell the bikes on, but to the team at Hawg Haven in Norwich the bikes are priceless, representing the culmination of years of dedication and hard work. Consequently business partners Jon and Terry are offering a massive £10,000 reward for information which leads to the safe recovery of Psy-Bawg and Barnstormer.

The attempted theft of a treasured Kawasaki Ninja was thwarted last week by a text message sent via Text-Alert from Datatool, the UK’s leading supplier of innovative electronic motorcycle products. Andrew Aldridge, a pub landlord and father of four from Rubery in the West Midlands, bought his Kawasaki with the Datatool Text-Alert fitted as he particularly wanted the extra security. Andy has no alternative but to park his motorbike behind his house out of earshot of the alarm, so the Text-Alert gives him extra peace of mind.

Police have put the fear back into criminals to reduce motorcycle thefts in South Gloucestershire. An operation, which quite literally caught thieves in the act, has helped to dramatically reduce the number of mopeds being stolen in areas including Filton and Patchway. The initiative was launched three months ago to curb the rising number of thefts in South Gloucestershire which at its peak reached more than 60 reported thefts in one month.
