Nice to see MCN have thorough geographic knowledge of the UK...

They have Cheshire in North Wales and Devon and Cornwall in Dyfed Powys.

Age old problem of if someone wants it, they’ll take it.

I've seen a massive increase in visible scrotes blatantly out on the rob - 2-up on a plateless bike, no helmets just hoodies and balaclavas. There's not exactly any cops about to nick em, and those that are are on mountain bikes or the bus!

Sometimes yeah. I get more paranoid about if someone is following me on that last mile or two when going home - I’ve deliberately taken a wrong turn or gone around the block a few times - luckily just paranoia so far  Laugh

Not a pleasant way to have to live...

As quiet as it is here, a couple of the lads have questioned why I still chain all the bikes.... habit, and knowing that scroates are everywhere....if they made an attempt, I’d simply move the bike away, but that’s me.

The last wave of thefts here were down to owners posting on FaceBook and the rest is history.

Is Chester not in Cheshire any more then ? Tongue

Chester is a bit grim these days, but Warrington and Runcorn are the worst bits of Cheshire, we should never have let them in Undecided

Mind you Crewe pops up regularly on those Police, Camera, Action programmes these days.

Are you accusing them of something Mark? 

I mean its understandable, with that Eastenders-gangster look that some are sporting around here  Laugh

What is it with middle age.... are you made to watch EastEnders Lee ???

No, but I am aware of what it is Doc.

Why all the age digs? I'm probably the second youngest on here with Mark only just beating me by a year or two. Jealous?  Laugh

Who? Me? 

You are over 40.... ask your Charley.... Am I old? I’m guessing the answer will be a shrug of the shoulders, with a muttering of Ancient.

From the mouth of babes.... Big Grin
