Bike thieves on the prowl in Sydney

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Kaer, Feb 7, 2006.

  1. Unsure if true or not. Also unsure if going to the cops will do anything. Info come from another forum.

  2. I know the spot ,i ride past it all the time and there is 30+ bike for them to pick from .
    It's like a supermarket for a thief.
  3. BE AWARE...

    This popped up on another list...

  4. Ok.. :oops:..back under me rock...
  5. no harm in letting everyone know again.
  6. Yeah I know the area...down by the Erskine Rd bike park, its the largest in Sydney CBD and I some times park there :?

    thanks for the heads up as I had not seen the other post ;)
  7. best advise if u catch a thief stealing your bike
    promtly grap the theif, stuff them into the boot of ur car, then post a note on netrider that u have a thief at home ready for a beating
  8. Ended up those scum did manage to get away with stealing a bike

  9. Bastards. Has the rego been passed on to the cops?? Or a description on the guys who were checking out the bikes?? Someone should leave digi camera with the construction workers so they can take a pic of the gyus turn up again.

    let me guess, the bike stolen was an R1??
