Anyone who legally owns and rides off-road vehicles is urged to security mark their property and store them hidden from view in fully locked sheds or garages.
Bike thefts should be reported to police on 101, via our online form, or 999 if a crime is in progress.
Petrol garages are also urged to spot the signs someone may be involved in this dangerous activity. Businesses reserve the rights not to turn on the forecourt pumps to children or teenagers who appear to be too young to legally drive who are filling up jerry cans. Garage staff can refuse service and report suspicious activity to police on 101.
