    CINDERS, if you lived in the UKicon right now you may well have struggled to get the police to visit you, to investigate the crime, depending on what other investigations/commitments the police were involved with, due to "limited resources". Just think of how you would feel right now if the police hadn't even been round to see you and to see what had been taken etc.

    Really sorry to hear this Ron, I feel for you mate.

    I live in a small town too, (idyllic English Cotswold town on the surface), local Drug dealers ply their trade without any fear of the law and so called petty crime (car / motorbike theft and house burglary is increasingly common.

    Petty crime, tell that to the people it effects, doesn't 'feel' very petty....

    So sorry again mate, it fills you with a bloody rage that takes time to dissipate..

    Sorry if we're getting political Doug, but sometimes a good rant helps to release the pressure!

    "CODE RED" I would wager works a higher % than any punishment although I liked it when shame was enough.

    Sorry man. Unfortunately i fell you pain and i hope your son gets his bike back.
    The world seems a little backwards when the sympathy goes to the criminal and not the victim. security cameras and alarms are becoming the norm.

    Makes be think of how owners of remote cabins out west place sheets of plywood with nails driven thru and pointing up as a "not welcome" mat for bears.
    I am smiling thinking of a thief trying to explain to the ER doctor what happened to his feet.

    When I had my car vandalised some years ago, it happened while it was parked overnight right in front of a CCTV camera. When I contacted the police and explained the situation to them I was told that it wasn't a "serious enough crime" for the CCTV film footage to be looked through, no police were available to come and look at the damage to my car and I had my work cut out even to get a crime number out of the police.

    @ 2 years after my Z900 was stolen the police contacted me saying they had found the motor or what was left of it in Lake Monger (Mung-ger) did I want it so I said yep I get it all that was left were the crank cases all the internals with 4 pistons poking out the top all nicely rusting and oxidizing after 2 years sitting in the lake. The insurance Co rang me not long after and wanted to know if the bike was salvageable I just laughed at them.
    They traced me through the serial on the engine which had been ground off but the imprint goes through on a molecular level in the aluminium or steel and they xrayed it to see the serial No. stupid me threw the cases & gears etc out those cases now would be worth pretty penny to a Z900 restorer as they are a matched pair.....dummo me.
