Motorcycle Thefts

Alert message sent 09/01/2020 09:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good Morning All,

In the last few weeks we have seen an increase in motorbike thefts whereby motorcycles haven’t been secured, steering locks have been snapped and subsequently have been stolen.

It takes a matter of seconds for criminals to steal motorcycles especially if they are left unsecured or with inadequate security. Please ensure that when leaving your motorcycle unattended, even for a short period, that you take these steps to prevent thefts.

Break discs locks and locks to secure break and throttle controls should be considered along with chain locks through the back wheel. Consider securing the bike to a ground anchor or street furniture, if this isn’t possible thread the chain through your bike chain and back wheel. As an instant deterrent, using a cover for your motorcycle, instantly makes it less attractive and is another obstacle for criminals. By using multiple security measures, you can make it harder and less attractive for criminals.

Furthermore, please ensure that keys are removed and kept in a safe place and that it is parked in the safest place possible. There are many products on the market that are approved by the police through the SBD website that includes alarms and trackers. https://www.securedbydesign.com/member-companies/accredited-product-search

Any suspicious activity, please report via appropriate channels.

Many thanks
