That's rotten news Paul, good luck with tracing the bike and (hope against hope) the thieves too.

Everytime I leave my bike on the road or public car park and walk away, I think is that the last time I see it?

Most stolen bikes/cars are abused by the thieves or disassembled for parts. It's usually better if it's not recovered.

It appears to be less prevalent than in your neighborhood. My friends and I never lock our bikes or use security devises such as wheel locks or chains, nor have I heard of anyone having their bike stolen. I suspect that bike theft might be more of a big city thing. :107:

That's lousy news,  :151: :232: looks like the unfortunate owner had himself a nice pristine bike there, 4yrs old and only 2700 miles. :003:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

I'm the same buddy, most of my work car parks are reasonably secure, I keep my bike in a garage joining the house at home, but I park wherever I can when out and about, London is bad at the moment with the bike equivalent of car-jacking becoming more common, but the Met Police are cracking down on it as a priority, they're very stretched due to government funding, so there's some who will still chance their arm stealing a new and relatively expensive, or collectable bike.

If anything bike and car thefts have gone down slightly over the past few years, but like a lot of things, with the expansion of social media, etc, you get to hear about things more, targeted thefts of desirable bikes, or easy locations, is definitely more of a city thing  :028:

I've had 2 stolen, 2 neighbours similar, my pal in Hayfield Derbyshire has had 3 stolen. We are 15 -20 miles by road from a city. It's off-roaders that get stolen where we are, teenage scrotes.

Look at Huddersfield, worst outside of London.
