A friend's newly acquired low milage Centauro after the scum in Birkenhead had stolen it from outside a caff where he was having a wee bite a couple of months back...

And I thought I was being paranoid because I never walk away from my bike without putting a strong disclock on the front wheel, not evan for five minutes, evan if I can see it from wherever I'm going.
I am aware that wouldn't stop a determined practised experienced t'leaf, but I feel it would deter the kind of juvenile childish brainless t**ser that has done this.
Bring back the birch, fifty lashes followed by five years hard labour on bread and water, and a concrete slab for a bed.
They'd not want to chance it twice.

Oh, that's a bit over the top. I suspect the 50 lashes might just be enough. Why go to the trouble of organising 5 years hard labour at the taxpayers' expense?

Maybe settle for just cutting off the right hand?

They don't get paid for the hard labour, profits go to upkeep.
Harsh ? They'd think they got off lightly if the alternative was ME.

If you get one, just make sure it's one which works well over some distance. Lot of cheap poor quality stuff sold on Ebay.

You'll need someone very good with phones to set one of those up. You buy the SIM card (so £8.75 isn't the end cost) and then need to start texting long, case sensitive strings of gobbledegook to it to get it to respond. The instructions are of course in Chinglish and assume you full knowledge of mobile phone networks. Send me your address, you can have the one I gave up on, assuming the spiders in the back corner of the garage will give it up.

The next step up are £40 and work as advertised. They supply the sim and you log on to a website just like buying a new phone. Just like mobile phone providers, once you are settled they double the fees. Expect to pay 50p a week or more. I aren't going to name the one I used because of this.

Then there is what you do once the bike is stolen and you know where it is. Do not expect the police to go there sirens blasting and arrest the scrote whose lock up it is. This isn't 1975, the police fear hurting anyone's feelings too much to actually leave their offices. Go DIY if you know couple of big lads who own pick-axe handles and satisfaction will be offset by plod coming round later to discuss your gender bias regarding hired thugs. So, what will you do with said tracker info? There is some evidence the high end tracker companies (£200+ fitting and £1 a day) make some sort of contribution to the Policeman's ball of something and can get them out, but often still not. These come with immobilisers, so expect ride halting problems when they age.

Sadly, I have to agree with Andy's well put argument. You won't get any help from Plod unless they happen to run over your abandoned bike on the way to Greggs. My farmer neighbour went with a bunch of big lads and got his stolen trailer back because police would not go to the caravan site where it was. The next night his hay barn burnt down (coincidence?). Police came and confiscated his shotgun because it could hold 3 cartridges!
