I’m looking to upgrade my toy. When I put photos of it up, should I allow the number plate to be displayed?
Let’s be careful out there.

Morning. Got an email from my MP in relation to the email I sent her about Motorcycle/Moped crime, saying she intends to raise the issue to Amber Rudd in Parliament.
That is today's singular positive.
Amber Rudd will say words, but it is action that is needed, and May & Rudd are big on words, but follow up action is sadly none existent.
I googled 'ground anchor petition ’ and found a .gov.uk page which said someone had started a petition but it was rejected on the grounds that TfL are responsible. As they answer to the London Assembly, has anyone followed their petition process?
with regards the number plate, hiding it can look shifty on an advert but realistically if scrotes wanted to clone your plate they could do it from you riding past at any time. You’re gaining a tiny sliver of security by hiding it but losing more potential buyers. I’ve never hidden mine and also never had a problem. This includes loads of photos of my bike on my facebook which are public posts.

I would expect a similar result, as TfL are not responsible for anything other than red routes. And although that includes some out-of-hours parking provision, mainly bays in bus lanes, I doubt it includes any dedicated motorcycle ones.
Sadly it is a matter for the councils, all 33 of them, separately.
And though TfL can come up with standards and practices, like their Urban Motorcyle Design Handbook, they have no power over the councils to make them take any notice.
Personally I think it would be better to petition the government and GLA to get the Home Office and mayor to fund it through the police as a crime prevention issue, rather than just a quality of parking provision one that was why the other petition was rejected. The savings that could be made from fewer crimes, both the bike theft and the use of scooters in committing further crimes, should far outweigh the relatively low cost of installing anchors.
