THIEVES STEALING YOUR BIKE? CATCHYA INSIDE REVELATOR ALF HELLO WELCOME TO REVELATOR ALF. THE CHANNEL

YOUR BIKE? WELL FIRST OF ALL WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE
THREE MAIN TYPES OF MOTORCYCLE THEIVES. 1. THE PROFESSIONAL THIEF – WHO WILL STEAL
TO ORDER AND THE BIKE WILL EITHER BE SHIPPED ABROAD SOMEWHERE
OR WILL BE BROKEN DOWN FOR PARTS. 2. THE DELINQUENT THIEF – WHO WILL STEAL
TO GO HAVE A JOY RIDE AND IT’LL PROBABLY END UP BEING DAMAGED AND OR BURNT BEYOND REPAIR.
3. THE CRIMINAL THIEF – WHO WILL STEAL TO THEN USE IT WHILST ENGAGING IN A CRIMINAL
ACTIVITY E.G. STREET CRIME OR ROBBERY ETC. NOW, THERE ARE
VERY GOOD PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET THAT CAN HELP TO PREVENT ANY OF THESE THEIF TYPES FROM
STEALING YOUR PRIDE AND JOY. HOWEVER IT SHOULD ALSO BE NOTED THAT THEY
ARE MOSTLY A DETERRENT RATHER THAN A CURE. SO IF YOUR BIKE IS BEING LEFT OUT IN THE OPEN,
YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER A DECENT HEAVY DUTY CHAIN, A DISC LOCK OR A HEAVY DUTY HANDLEBAR
GRIP & BRAKE LOCK, AS WELL AS AN ALARM AND IMMOBILSER. WHEN YOU’RE OUT RIDING, YOU MAY WANT TO
CONSIDER ATTACHING YOUR KEY RING TO A SPRING REMINDER CABLE WHICH IS SECURELY ATTACHED
TO THE BIKE. THIS WILL STOP THIEVES TRYING TO GRAB YOUR
KEYS AND RUNNING OFF WITH THEM, LEAVING YOU AND YOUR BIKE STRANDED AND VULNERABLE. AT HOME, IDEALLY YOU WOULD HAVE YOUR BIKE
IN A LOCKED, SOLID BRICK GARAGE WITH DECENT SECURITY DOORS AND THE BIKE WOULD BE SECURED
TO A GROUND ANCHOR. NOW, I HAVE PUT SOME LINKS IN THE DESCRIPTION
OF THE KIND OF THINGS I HAVE TOO, IF YOURE INTERESTED…BUT THESE THINGS ARE READILY
AVAILABLE AT LOTS OF MOTORCYCEL ACCESSORY PLACES TOO. THE PROBLEM WITH MUCH OF THESE SECURITY ITEMS
IS THAT THEY ARE ONLY A DETERRENT TO THE THIEF. IN FACT IT’S RIDICULOUS HOW EASY IT IS FOR
SOME THEIVES TO BE ABLE TO BREAK THE SECURITY MEASURES TO STEAL YOUR BIKE.
IF YOU FIT A TRACKER TO YOUR BIKE OR ANY KIND OF DATATAG ETC, IT DOESN’T NECESSARILY MEAN
THAT YOUR BIKE WONT BE STOLEN OR THAT IT WON’T BE RECOVERED…AND IT ALSO DOESN’T MEAN
THAT IT WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU IN ONE PIECE EITHER. SO HERE ARE SOME TIPS THAT HOPEFULLY WILL
PROTECT YOUR BIKE FROM THE THREE BASIC TYPES OF MOTORCYCLE THIEF. 1. IF YOU HAVE TO PARK YOUR BIKE OUTSIDE ON
THE STREET, TRY TO PUT IT IN A WELL LIT AREA WHERE THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE WALKING BY.
2. USE A SECURITY CHAIN TO ATTACH THE BIKE FRAME AND WHEELS TOGETHER AND WHEREVER POSSIBLE
ATTACH IT TO A SOLID OBJECT, SUCH AS A LAMP POST.
3. DON’T BE A TARGET. IF YOU HAVE A SUPER NICE AND EXPENSIVE MOTORCYCLE, THEN IN GENERAL
DON’T LEAVE IT UNATTENDED BUT DON’T LEAVE IT IN DODGY AREAS.
4. ALWAYS USE THE MOST SECURE METHOD THAT YOU CAN AFFORD AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE
APPROPRIATE INSURANCE FOR YOUR BIKE THAT ALSO COVERS YOU FROM THEFT IN THE PUBLIC AND IT
IS NOT PREDICATED ON THE USE OF SECURITY EQUIPMENT THAT YOU ARE NOT USING. SO HERE’S A QUESTION FOR YOU ALL. WHAT SECURITY
MEASURES TO EMPLOY YOU WHEN YOU PARK YOUR BIKE AT HOME OR ON THE STREET. DO YOU CHANGE
YOUR TACTICS WHEN PARKING UP DURING THE DAY AND NIGHT? PLEASE LEAVE COMMENT BELOW WITH
A PREFIX OF ‘THIEF’ NOW WE HAVE ALL SEEN THESE MOPED THIEVES IN
LONDON BEING VERY BRAZEN WHEN STEALING THEIR MOPEDS. USUALLY OPERATING IN GROUPS AND WIELDING
HAMMERS AND BATTERY POWERED ANGLE GRINDERS TOO. NOW THE SENSIBLE APPROACH HERE IS JUST TO
CALL THE POLICE AND KEEP YOUR DISTANCE. TAKE VIDEO IF YOU CAN. I CERTAINLY CAN’T SAY
TO YOU THAT YOU SHOULD GET INVOLVED IN ANY KIND OF PHYSICAL CONFRONTATION WITH THESE
THIEVES ALTHOUGH I KNOW IT WOULD BE VERY TEMPTING TO DO SO. BUT MAKING A VERBAL FUSS MIGHT BE
THE ORDER OF THE DAY. REMEMBER YOUR BIKE SHOULD BE INSURED ANYWAY SO IF THE SITUATION IS VERY
DODGY, BEST LET IT GO AND LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY. MANY PROFESSIONAL THIEVES DON’T CARE ABOUT
ALARMS OR SECURTIY CHAINS AS THEY ARE LOOKING FOR OPPORTUNITIES FOR EASY PICKINGS. THEY
WILL USUALLY CASE OUT A CERTAIN AREA AND CHECK FOR WEAK LINKS TO EXPLOIT. SO THE KEY HERE
IS TO NOT PARK YOUR BIKE IN THE SAME AREA TWICE AND CONSTATNLY CHANGE PARKING LOCATIONS. SOME THIEVES WILL USE BIG VANS WITH BED MATTRESSES
TOO. THEY’LL DRIVE UP TO THE BIKE, QUICKLY GET OUT AND LIFT THE BIKE INTO THE BACK OF
THE VAN. LAY IT ON ITS SIDE ON THE MATTRESS AND DRIVE OFF. ALL OF THIS CAN BE DONE IN
THE BLINK OF AN EYE TOO. SO IF THE BIKE IS PARKED ON THE STREET AND IT ISN’T SECURED
TO ANYTHING SOLID, THEN REALLY YOU’RE MAKING IT TOO EASY FOR THE THIEVES TO STEAL YOUR
BIKE. THIS IS THE KEY POINT. YOU WANT TO MAKE IT
AS DIFFICULT AS POSSIBLE FOR ANYONE WHO WOULD WANT TO STEAL YOUR BIKE. SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? WELL. HERE ARE MY TOP TEN TIPS SO THAT YOUR
BIKE DOESN’T GET STOLEN. 1. DON’T BE A TARGET
2. USE THE BEST SECURITY YOU CAN AFFORD 3. CHANGE PARKING LOCATIONS
4. AVOID QUIET STREET PARKING IF POSSIBLE 5. LIMIT THE TIME YOU LEAVE YOUR BIKE ALONE
6. AVOID TAKING YOUR BIKE TO DODGY AREAS 7. MAKE SURE YOUR BIKE IS SECURED AT ALL TIMES
8. BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES 9. KEEP YOUR KEY RING TIED TO THE BIKE WHEN
RIDING 10. REMEMBER YOU HAVE INSURANCE IN THE DESCRIPTION I’VE PRODUCED A LINK
