    The Yobs cartoon in Private Eye this week may well prompt a crime wave. It's such a cracking idea. They nick a car, drive it really fast through ten speed cameras and then.... ....park it back where they found it:D. I know, I know, it is very irresponsible of me but I can't help but be...
  9. For Sale / Wanted
    Need one for a learner. Gonna be putting my DR 350 up for sale next week, once I get back and change the brake lever. In the meantime, anyone got or seen a bargain? Insurance in London means can only probably get third-party so don't want to be putting £1,000s at risk of theft. And would rather...

  14. Africa Twin
    I almost had my bike stolen last night, but in the process of forcing the steering lock, they must have damaged something on the front because the frontwheel is now misaligned. Hence they left it. I will need to have it fixed by someone in London but I have no clue of what this will cost. Any...

    My sister was out for the day in York with her boyfriend today, upon returning home she noticed £90 and her debit card missing from her purse. I asked if she had left her bag anywhere and the only place she left it was when she was in the pub, at her feet. The only thing that puzzles me is why...

  17. Africa Twin
    Hi all Idiots had a go at my bike AGAIN last night. Since they stuffed up my immobiliser not so long ago, that I had to strip from the bike, they've gone and f*#ked up the steering lock and ignition barrel now by trying to force the handlebars. So, firstly I need an ignition barrel. Yen, you...

    After all the recent shenanigans between Coldplay & Joe Satriani what with them "borrowing" one of his riffs for a melody in their latest single, I was shown this. If you're fan of The Cult then this should sound very familiar. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=vQewYROnaUw

    So the clocks go back and two scuzzers (one fat, one thin) turn up in a white Mistubishi van (so says a neighbour) and make off with my 1998 XR250R in the back of it. Do I get a prize? :( Kick-start only, white, dayglo yellow/orange tank stickers, red seat, home-made aluminium bash-plate, 2008...
  20. Africa Twin
    Came the other night to find my Twin sat in the middle of the car park, front side panel hanging off, ignition barrel hammered out and the wiring a right mess. Yep some b******s tried to steal it. Not exactly sure how they thought they'd get it through a locked security gate or the pedestrian...
