At least they are actively pursuing bike crimes, it's good to see they are taking bike theft more seriously now, as above I'm also with the officer on this one.

As a side note how do you prove the bike is urs?

If I get stopped and I don't know my own serial number then I take it it could be anyones bike?

Many the next time I buy an expensive bike I'll get it insured so I have papers to prove its mine and to protect against theft.
