  1. The police knocked on my door the other day to say there’s been a few motorbike robberies recently and they were checking that my bike is properly secured outside my house.
    I explained that it has 2x large locks, both through Thatcham approved ground achors and they did seem too impressed when i told them that it’s alarmed and i own a shotgun. If I hear that alarm it’ll be easy to identify who tried to rob it as they’ll still be on the front with shins full of lead.
