Coming round the corner from King Cross station this morning, King Cross Road towards Farringdon and notice a load of blokes in High viz jackets and (looked like) a plain clothes policeman in a stab proof vest (!) stopping scooters an checking them over.
I was following a CBR6 and they had one scooter in the coned lay-by and were just stopping another.
Were we just lucky…or is it National ‘Stop a Scooter day’…
spotted a young lad on a runner, no number plate, checking out bikes in a bay, he went off, and came back from teh opposite direction, through a red light on teh wrong side of the road, all this right by islington nick, they really dont give a monkeys do they, the kids that is.
Careful there. He is probably looking for an easy bike to nick! NOT joking, this is how they operate, only next time he comes by with a pillion + screwdriver to bust the ingition and steering lock and bye bye bike. Saw one checking out my bike earlier in the year. I had it chained up so it was not an easy target.
