How common are scooter thefts?

Postby CheekyCharmer » Wed Apr 08, 2009 1:26 pm

About to scootle on into this new world myself and was wondering how common scooter thefts are around New Zealand and I guess, particularly Wellington?

Are the ignitions on the scooters particularly easy to crack without a key etc?

Any recommendations for achieving better security much appreciated too.

Scooter theft in AK is pretty common, especially around the University.

Recommend a good wheel lock and hand grip lock, this will slow most of the common break the ignition and roll onto a trailer type theft. I think this is a Nationwide problem. not sure the scooters are ever recovered so don't know where they end up. :shock:

Have heard of more serious scoots being stolen and carried onto trailers but this is on rare occations. :evil:
