    be careful on storage costs, the cops use (or used) lantern recovery services to hold your bike - my Dayto was kicked outside my place in london a fair few years back and they managed to recover it a week later.
    They notified me same day and told me they weren't going to fingerprint it (they didn't catch the scrotes) so said I wanted it back that day - cop said go to lantern in acton and pick it up, when I got there they wouldn't release it saying the cops needed to fingerprint I said no they weren't going to so guy wasn't wouldn't have it - eventually I got hold of ealing police and handed the phone over. He then agree's and charges me ....................................... 150 f%&*kin quid ........... and that was same day as recieved .................. f*&^kin sharks.

    I have since heard (through a mate who worked for lantern) that if you have nice bits and they like them they'll take em and tell ya it wasn't on the bike when they recovered it, as well as draining your tank for a bit o extra fuel for themslves.

    glad they caught the twats, hope they're both raped daily whilst in custody
