there aren't really any words for that. left it in a bush? it's a fu*king joke. hope nothing's too costly, mate. non-OEM lock sets are on eBay for £50.

So they planned to come back later and take it?
Opportunist pro thieves perhaps???

AND WHERE did they find a bush accomodating enough?

Did you take any photos? THIS I must see.
How did the customer help you?

So so so lucky for sure!!! Im still a little shocked that we found it. It will never be left anywhere without my chain again!! The wife of the guy who helped me saw them take my bike but was to scared to say anything so she rand ger fella who was just round the corner at home, he came in his car to tell me and said he whould drive me to the end of the ally to see if we could find them. We found tyre tracks through some mud i went one way he went the other and found they went into/behind a bush with a tree over hanging it. I dont know anywhere around the the area so if not for him i would never have found it and they would have had my bike forever. As we found it a guy appearws from the walkway right near I said you just nicked my fucking bike, dickhead? He said no just as 3 more guys appeard i was on the phone to the police by then so gavw descriptions and direction they went. We have cctv and i would defo recognise 2 of them again. Police are bringing pics tomorrow of local yobs so hopefully they will get them!!

Thank god we do have some decent people in this world though. Fair play to the woman, most people if scared would have said nothing but atleast she did the right thing.

Glad you managed to find it and hope you catch the thieving scumbags!!

you should've lied on the phone to the operator and told them you'd just beaten the sh*t out of one of them. you'd have had officers there within 2 minutes and they'd have been nicked.

if you need a new ignition barrel, iv got an almost new one with keys, used it for round 4-5 days, and then figured i could actually fix my old one so have it sat in my room doing nothing, its not a genuine yamaha one but works fine and comes with the seat lock too. if all the pins in the ignition barrel are fine there is a way to put them in a different ignition barrel and get the same pattern so no need for a new key or different keys for fuel and ignition :) all just depends how you want to go about it.

glad you got it back though mate, so lucky to find it again, most the time its gone and forever :/
