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 TRF sticker, CB125 left-hand switchgear, obviously aftermarket Chinese kill-switch, purple Renthal bars and front mudguard bracket, index: NxxxMHG, knobblies, fender-pocket, spark-plug protector (keeps muck off) cut from an inner-tube.

Drat, drat and double drat! :angry5: Please keep your eyes peeled.

Happily the two routes away from my home are covered by the Met's CCTV network. I've never been against cameras, and I'm not about to start now!

Sorry to hear that, they're scum, the lot of them. angry9:

Sounds like they just turned up knowing a bike was there. Was the bike out in the open or locked away in a garage as if the later then somehow they've either been tipped off by someone local it was there, followed you home or maybe someone whose viewed you bike(s) in the past?

Kept on the street, as needs must here in central London. Heavy chain and disclock had no deterrent effect. Apparently they parked right across the street opposite my windows. Charming, eh?!

PM Me and Grooverider ( there's a few others earning their living driving around town) the plate no.......We can keep an eye out......They might be goin' 'shopping' on it.

D'you mind if we knock 'em off...:confused:

EDIT..Just saw the partial index...That'll do ........(1998 on an 'N' ?)

Dont know of any Lambeth legs or such
but a chelsea smile might wake them up
I'm not one for self justice it seems to backfire too much but stories like this really get my goat, they deserve to be hurt but instead IF they get cought they will probably get communal service (what ever that means)
