gears and its general roadworthiness. If your bike has an
issue that cannot be rectified in 15 minutes they will
advise you on what is wrong so you can take it to a bike
shop well-informed. The police will be at the events marking
bikes and adding details to This service
will deter theft and in the event your bike is stolen, will
ensure that your details are on a nationwide database so it
is much more likely to be returned to you if recovered. HGV
