    Must admit your bike must have been "nice" enough to nick, cause mines an old dog that you wouldn't look twice at.
    Its got that omg distressed look going on.

Smile but at the end still better chance getting the bike back , my next bike will b fitted with a trakker!!!!

    Easy enough to do now with a system that texts u it's co ordinates and alerts u if the bike is moved

    plenty of similar kits on eBay for Under £50

    Sorry to hear about your bike, hopefully the scrotes will end up going the same way as the fucktards that tried robbing go outdoors on quads, and rode down the main London to Swansea train line!

    Unfortunately the tracker is easily spotted on a dirt bike, not as easy on a road bike or car.

    Best deterrent is to fit something that makes loads of noise if it's moved, or chain it to something that can't be moved, or take one of the wheels off. I know this isn't always convenient, but it either slows the twats down or just puts them off.

    Hope you get your bike back.

    If you were happy with the 426 why not take the chance to up grade to a 450? Electric start then to.

    Get over to Llan Rumney mate, 100% it will be someone from there who stole it if it's within 10 miles of Cardiff.
