Lock or Loose?

Post by rajrakhiria » Sat May 21, 2016 8:26 pm

Hi Guys,

Just thought I should share my terrible experience of which I encountered this week. Whilst returning from a dealership (Triumph) to dis-arm my beloved new Daytona's nuisance alarm, I popped into my local supermarket - Tesco, parking conveniently in the dedicated motorcycle parking adjacent to the main entrance. Just had a few essentials to pick up to throw into my back pack!

I was gone probably 30 minutes only to return to find my bike surrounded by security and police. A 'Hoody' teenager was handcuffed and my bike was damaged as he tried to nick it, although his accomplish got away, they broke my steering lock.

Fortunately I/Police got viable witness statements, including true CCTV evidence. However does anyone have any ideas of how I get my cost for repairs reimbursed (more promptly than waiting for a court hearing)? Subsequently any direction of a solicitor for representation/or independent advice??

I will look at the back pages of MCN also. Looking back I wish I had said a few chosen words to the offender, he has caused inconvenience and distress (to both myself and family).

I'm truly gutted as doing a google search, I have seen various comments - (permitting Crown Prosecution Service) proceed with a court hearing of which there is a strong chance, the offender may have an offer of paying in minimal instalments and furthermore if he gets a longer prison sentence, he may not have to cough up any monies at all!

To conclude if you have a decent lock, use it, highly suggest locking it to something. I thought a steering lock was suffice momentarily.

Thanks for taking time out to read my message.

Victim Support......Here I come!

Kind Regards
Raj

sorry to hear this, your best bet is to go and talk to a solicitor, you will get 30mins free advice before they proceed.

Good luck with trying to get money out of the scrote.

Hi Folks,

Just to give you guys an update. To cut a very long story shorty, recently the offender was convicted of his crime. He got 11 weeks behind bars and was fined to pay me £1000 compensation (this includes repair work to cover damage to my Triumph). Hence I decided not to go through insurance to avoid future heavy premiums.


Offender has been allowed to pay £10 per month! I did question this payment instalments with the crown court.

Only to be told..... :smt014 :smt014 If offender has to pay any more it may affect his way of living and embarg on his human rights!

Just recently came back from a 3 week stay in India ..... amazes me although the driving/riding discipline and road safety can be questioned, people just leave other people's property alone!

Glad you got justice. ..just..
The system is bonkers... I had similar many years ago at £12 per month and the payments didn't always turn up either..

Thanks for the update. Karma will prevail :)
