    Hello and welcome to the forum, I'm fairly new here too (been riding bike for years though)

    I'm not far away from you I'm in Kilsyth.

    I'm a bit busy with prepping up a trip away but once I'm back I was going to organise a Sunday Bimble starting from the petrol station on Great Western Road. You'd be more than welcome to come along.

    Your bike is lovely btw

    Is "Bimbling" still legal in Scotland?

    Only time I had a problem with theft in Glasgow was when I lived in Castlemilk ( a well known part of Glasgow).
    My chain defeated the scrote but he did manage to break the headlight and cut him/her self

    Ditto to Littleade's reply
    You definately need chains and good locks, don't rely on a silly easily snapped steering lock

    Don't you worry too much about that... I'm a bit bit paranoid regarding security, and I don't have the luck of disposing of a garage. So I have a sold secure silver chain through my rear wheel attached to a fence or a pole at all idle times, and another sold secure silver disc lock, and a third big ass chain through my front wheel tying my rain cover for the night or when I'm not taking her to work.

    Though there is another biker literally 30 meters away from where I live and he told me he never had a single issue in this neighbourhood in 4 years.
