There'll be some VERY alert (and sleepless) campers over the weekend. I'll be one of them...

On Sunday night, a dealer in Sutton Coldfield was rammed with a hi-jacked van...tens if not thousands of £ damage done...and three shitty little pit-bikes stolen. Arrests have followed, apparently.

Scumbags.

Let's hope that 'security' will be on their toes now if anymore scrotes appear :(
Security :lol: They're probably in on it :evil:

I feel sorry for Alan and the team and all the hard work put in to make this event a success... Security needs kicking and sudely all vehicles should be searched going out to check they are the owners... I hope with all the publicity the tents etc are safe as folks will have valuables along... Bet someone is been given a right royal rollicking..

Have fun and keep the eyes peeled and maybe some zip ties on doors etc...

Plenty of trees to hang them from.
or nail the bastards to :evil:

Awful news and I hope all the bikes are recovered soon.

Its not the 1st time this sort of thing as happened . I know a group from ADV Rider who had bikes stolen at a meeting . I guess thieving scum use bike forums and Facebook to do their research , and we all give them all the information they need to know what bikes will be where and when .

One of the most outrageous postings I saw a few years back was on UKGSER where it was under the title of " Show us your garage " I mean wtf ..That post had 1000's showing detailed photos of their garages and its contents ...A thieving scums dream post .

I no longer post anything until after the event and never say where I'm wild camping . Sadly these days you never know who's reading them .

Stay safe , chain your bikes together and if you catch the scum beat the shit out of them before you call the police .

I wonder, perhaps the Shits had tickets?
A pox on them all.

Start looking for any footage of vans leaving the event even in daylight these scum are brazen and would leave in broad daylight with the bikes already onboard

Not sure if the second bit is worth bothering with, but +1 on the drubbing

Whinging ?? about 6 bikes being stolen from a supposedly secure site organised by a national magazine which had security looking after it ?

I take it you won't be too arsed if they steal your bike tonight then ?
