"A lot of the riders come from working class areas so they are surrounded by gangs and crime all the time,” Giannopoulos says...

Yep, scum from council estates and the like in other words. The sort of people who steal nice bikes and trash them. Most people in the UK (incl. myself - several times, even after I moved abroad) have had vehicles stolen. It's a fact of life in the UK but doesn't make it right. I've had at least 4 cars stolen and not recovered, the first a beautiful Mk 1 Golf GTi that 2 "working class" guys stripped, welded a cage into and went banger racing in. Feckers, but Karma caught up with them, no doubt.

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.

I'm pretty sure if I ever caught a [email protected] like that trying to steal a bike, regardless of reason he'd probably pay for all the other vehicles I had stolen that were never recovered. I'd find something solid to put in his front spokes to begin with...

Fortunately I live in a country where there's virtually no crime. I've no sympathy at all for scum like that video.
