Theft of motorcycles

Alert message sent 05/03/2019 16:13:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

There has been a recent increase in theft of motorcycles in the Heanor and Langley Mill area. Below are a few crime prevention security tips.

•Always lock the ignition and take the key with you when you leave your bike.
•Lock the steering - motorcycles come with a fork lock, which is the equivalent of a car’s steering lock.
•Remove the main fuse of your motorcycle when you park.
•Lock your disks. Motorcycle disk locks attach to the disk brake rotor to prevent the wheel from rolling. Disk locks which incorporate an alarm offer additional protection.
•Lock your wheels. Motorcycle wheel locks work the same way as disk locks - they are just larger.
•Use two or more different locks, for example a chain lock and a U-wheel lock.
•Chain your motorcycle to a secure object that is difficult to destroy, or to other motorcycles when you park together
•Use high quality locks that are difficult to break, force, or pick.
•Take pictures of your motorcycle and any unique parts and marks. This could help the police to identify it should it be stolen
