not affected me personally but these bloody moped thieves and gangs in London are getting on my tits! all you ever hear about, and Ive ended up leaving the facebook group for stolen bikes coz I am so sick of people preaching about how unless you strap an angry polar bear to your bike as security its your fault if its stolen!

Don't blame the victim, its ALWAYS the thieves fault!!!! and with all these gangs in London just see more and more crap, a 14 year old kid has been charged with murder in London after stabbing a 41 year old to death! ITs just MENTAL, 14! If I wasn't home from school at 14 on time I was in for a whooping for worrying my parents! kids nowadays are out committing murder! we really have gone down the toilet

Well said CT. Saw this morning that one of my favourite comedians has been robbed while in his Range Rover with his family inside. I dont care if its the police or a special security force give powers, all i want is more people who will deal with this crap

This had been my hardest swing ever Offshore and I still have over a week to go.


Did the guy who tripped it end up overboard? Coz I think if I was in your shoes Id have thrown him in haha


We tripped again yesterday (gah) thats three start ups in a week, unheard of.. everyone is walking around like zombies today.

And there was someone who needed throwing of for it this time.

5 more days. I've planned a big ride my kid free weekend, and man I'm looking forward to that.

:D It does not take long to get back into the swing of it does it...... compared to the awareness and courtesy in France, i know there is less traffic but even so....In the main the majority "Think Bike" and they dont need a bright yellow bib (or PINK) to be reminded :x (facepalm)

It makes you angry?? Why?? It's not your stuff.
It's not like the gear has been thrown down on the concrete....that will happen later, once it's been mounted on a bike.

Very true its not my stuff, and wont be!! People have very little care, i dont think its the best way of selling a valuable product is it. Makes your question whether they placed it on the ground before and its standard practice to them or whetehr they have done it just to sell it, neither sounds great to me.
