And the place most likely to have your motorbike stolen is...

If you polled 1,000 non-motorbike owners and asked them the main reason why they wouldn’t commute to work on a motorbike, a large proportion would question the safety of the machine, but you’d be surprised at how many would site fear of bike theft as a reason.

Bike theft of the cycling kind and motor kind has long been a problem in the UK with one being stolen every 7 seconds, and now the Home Office has released some stats pinpointing the places with the highest risk of theft. North London is the proud winners at the worst place in GB with Halifax second, Manchester third and Aberdeen fourth. With North Ireland and Wales the safest place to park a bike.

Out of 1,000 motorbikes registered, 25 of these are reported as stolen.
