Be aware of this scam for stealing a bike (apparently) that’s happened to a british motorcyclist. A biker stops to remove a pushbike from the road and whilst his back is turned someone tries to push his motorcycle away.

Daniel James MacArthur posted this video on his facebook page which showed a video shot from his helmet camera on Sunday.

The footage start with MacArthur stopping on the road off Newcastle city’s Billy Mill roundabout to move the bike to move the cycle which is laying in the roadway, as he stops and walks back to the bike he says that he remembered that he’d left the key in the bike’s ignition and looked over his shoulder to see a man walking the bike along the road.

There’s a bit of argy-bargy and MacArthur moves away to call the police as the pushbike gets thrown into the road again.
