Lock 2 Lock
- a simple answer to increase motorbike security
Lock-2-Lock is a national motorcycle security scheme fighting back against motorcycle theft.
It takes less than 20 seconds for a bike to be loaded into the back of a van and only 32% of stolen motorcycles are ever recovered.
However, Lock-2-Lock is not about preaching statistics that most riders know, it is about promoting a biker-friendly and safer community. The L2L scheme is run for the benefit of riders, not for profit and proposes to do this by uniting motorcyclists in a bid to radically reduce bike theft.
Because of a lack of secure motorcycle parking areas, it is almost taken for granted that riders will park their bikes and then worry about whether they will still be there when they return. The Lock-2-Lock scheme has been created to make that sort of anxiety a thing of the past by enabling riders to properly secure their bikes when parked in public
World Superbike Champion James Toseland is already enthusiastic about the idea and that's why he supports the scheme. The scheme is simplicity itself. By attaching an L2L sticker to their bikes, motorcyclists can help to drastically reduce motorcycle theft. The L2L sticker displayed on a motorcycle authorises another Lock-2-Lock member to lock his or her bike security chain to that particular bike's security chain. It is that simple.
The scheme enables two or more motorcycles to be locked together, making all the machines considerably more difficult to steal and protecting any number of motorcycles against theft. Only the locks are locked together,
therefore any of the bikes can be removed from the "chain" of bikes when the owner desires.
Lock-2-Lock is grateful for the support of the ACU (Auto-cycle Union) the BMF (British Motorcyclists Federation) and MAG (Motorcycle Action Group) who share our goals in the implementation of the Lock-2-Lock programme on a national scale.
