Not a Londoner anymore but this shit is happening all over.
Stolen on Monday afternoon about 2:30pm from my work in Chelmsford.
Reg SJ11 NYV
Got security footage and bike was gone in 2 mins despite alarm disc lock which they smashed (I have a part of it).
Typical two up on another bike (likely stolen) and wheeled out of the car park by one rider pushing my bike along with the other sitting on it.
CCTV caught the whole thing but of course it was zoomed out so no clear plates (probably useless anyway).
A mate of mine works on security desk and said the Police officer that called said they couldn’t do anything as no plates and no clear face of criminals as they kept lids on.
Anyway…bike is likely in bits now or destined for foreign lands but I thought I’d post some pics just in case anyone sees anything turn up.
One thing, they must have been scouting the area regularly for some time as they knew exactly where my bike was despite not visible from the road and they possibly were targeting me as they specifically went for my 10 despite a newer and (and possibly worth more) Ninja 6R with no security parked next to mine.
Also this was my first day back after a 2 week break.
That’s it for me and nice bikes on the road…This one was destined for track anyway whilst I got sorted with an older bike for the road.
Don’t get complacent even if you think you now live in a nice area away from Scumdon.
If you use anything nice to get into work, consider not doing that anymore.
If you can’t, then consider not bringing it in everyday and vary your routes home.
Tracker UK…Go back 10 years ago on here and my R1 was recovered with in 48 hrs…No real damage…Thieves caught…5 bikes recovered.
There are cheaper alternatives and track it yourself nonsense, but this is the only Police approved and Police tracked service. And they send out an officer to wait with your bike when recovered.
It’s expensive, but so is a £10k+ motorcycle.
Anyway…rambling done…Look after yourselves and your bikes.
