On one of my rides during a holiday in Auz I refueled in Melbourne. When I went to pay, I saw someone carrying a helmet in the reflection in the glass doors. As there were no other bikes in the servo, I turned around to see a young guy put my helmet in the back seat of his car. I
confronted them (two young guys) & got it back.
I took their registration details and threatened to report them to the police. I’m not 100% sure it wasn’t a prank, they were quite immature young men – but I was angry at the time.
bottom line: don’t leave your helmet unattended, even for a minute.
Thanks for the compliment on my site. I tried finding a contact email on here but was unable to find one, so I’m posting here (sorry that it is not relevant to your post). I would appreciate a link to my site on your blog roll. For the amount of work I put into my site, I find my subscriber rate and hits disappointing at times, so the more exposure the better 🙂
I would be livid. Glad you got it back.
