Motorbike theft on the rise in Bristol – secure your bike!

By Fowlers News

Bristol Post have reported that motorcycle theft has been on the rise in the past few months, with an increase in crime in the south of Bristol especially. No-one wants to leave home in the morning to see their pride and joy has been stolen, so take this opportunity to secure your machine!

We offer a complete range of security devices at Fowlers, from small disc locks that can be carried in your bag or under a seat, to more heavy-duty chains and ground anchors.

A disc lock is often the most cost-effective option, offering some protection from thieves by attaching to your front brake disc. A reminder cable is a good idea too, to make sure you don’t ride away with the lock still on! The Gear Gremlin Tempest disc lock is an ideal solution at only £29.99 – and don’t forget a reminder cable!

 

 

 

The most secure option is a ground anchor and thick, heavy chain. Buy the most expensive chain you can, with a sturdy padlock (with a contained bar if possible). A ground anchor can be fixed into concrete, and your chain firmly attached to it. Always pass your chain through the rear wheel, and if possible, the frame of your bike. The Gear Gremlin ground anchor, at £40.00, can be paired with a Nimrod chain and lock for £64.99.
