This morning I got a knock on the door from the police asking for a bloke called Daniel or something. He doesn’t live at my place and I know he doesn’t live upstairs… I go upstairs with the police to check for any mail for ex-tenants etc, but find nothing…as I walk out I notice my bike has disappeared!!!
It was there (or I’m pretty sure it was) at about 11PM when I got home from the pub…
Parked on the road as I have no off road parking. Not chained / covered because I forgot to put them on yesterday…please hold back on the public flogging for lack of security!
Can’t be without a bike…but security is going to have to be stepped up. I’m thinking I might get something welded onto the chassis of my car so I can chain my bike to it! Obviously this leaves the bike unsecured when I’m using the car. Perhaps I should by another car (the cheapest hunk of junk I can find) as an anchor???
I only had 1 years NCB but losing that is gonna whack my premium up about £300. The rage hasn’t set in yet!
For what it’s worth, I was looking into buying an old shed of a van, taking off the wheels so the van doesnt get nicked, and using it as a ‘garage’ for my bike. Weld in a few anchor points to the chassis, declare it SORN etc. Then I found somewhere safer to park…
I live in N4 on a reasonably quiet road off Green Lanes.
A guy I know has a garage so when I get a replacement I’ll be keeping it 5 mins walk down the road in there. Will lower the premium a bit too.
The police didn’t say much about recovery really… They were there to deal with another matter but were quite willing to deal with all of the details there and then. There were two police officers, a guy and an incredibly beautiful blonde gorgeous officer. That sort of sweetened the loss to some degree!
Just to add insult to injury I was driving through Camden earlier in the car and some prick changed lanes to go around a bendy bus and clipped the front end of my car. Already pissed off at this mornings events I was on the verge of punching him…! Fortunately it didn’t do any damage other than a bit of paint transfer which should come out with some T-Cut. ARGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I’m going for a beer.
