I just locked the stearing. Which is more than I did anywhere else in Ireland and Scotland. But obviously those pins are easierr to snap than I thought. Honestly, if I knew I was parking there for any length of time I would have done more. It had only been parked for 2 hours.

The trip was kind of coming to a cross roads. I had a ferry booked this morning to get to France, but I was a little on the fence about it.

Reading these, I've been living in a dream world thinking motorcycle theft was a real rarity. Paranoid when I cross the sea but in Ireland I've not been worried....

Was on Foley Street a few years but behind a gate, characters from "a certain block" stole all the bicycles, 30 in one night! but never touched the motorcycles. Not that I ever leave it without good locks front and rear.

Up near the hospital now, again off the road but no problem (yet). A lad has chained his Monster nearby this past couple of years on Gardiner place, to the railings up on the pavement, couple of plain looking locks that wouldn't slow a serious t-leaf. It's still there every day, never even messed about that I can see.

Right sad to read the stuff here.

Unfortunately the steering lock takes less than 5 seconds to break. . . anytime I'm off the bike even to buy a bottle of water the lock goes on. . . I learned the hard way.

I've been to loads of countries and 100% Ireland is the worst by far for petty theft (lids/gloves etc) and for stealing bikes.

Yeah I found that the hard way too. I live in a city in Canada with a notorious reputation and usually leave the key in. I kinda wish the people I was staying with gave a slight warning. Seems everyone in Dublin knows Mulhuddart is a bit rough

Canada?!! has it gone so downhill?

I like the key-less ignition and steering lock on the new KTM, it doesn't look like it could be broken easily at all.

FWIW I put a Xena XN15 on the front disc, they take ~10 minutes with an angle grinder, with a 16mm Oxford disc lock on the spokes of the back wheel which blocks it turning past the brake caliper and it would be right awkward to get 1m croppers in about it.
That and the GPS tracker.

Like, the city in Canada where my bike is, is known for a "high" crime rate, butvibstill leave the Kevin the ignition half the time and don't lock it. But. I should probably start. Pushing my luck.

I think if o put a disc lock on i woulda been okay. Hiding by the cctv they weren't very prepared but knew what they were doing

A small black bike ( probably 125cc ) has been spotted in a ditch near Lucan, if anybody knows someone who's had one stolen recently, reply below.
