Bike Watch Thailand
Thailand has lower crime (in general) compared to the west.
However bike theft is no stranger to Thailand.
As foreigners here our bikes represent a good deal of freedom and often we don't have them insured against theft. Whenever thieves strike and an expats bike is stolen we'll publish details of the bike below.
So keep your eyes open, check the bike and its frame numbers on any bike you're buying or checking out (unless its a main dealership). It may well be an import, or it could well be a stolen bike.
IF you do see a stolen bike, contact either OTRT, the owner AND/OR the police. Don't go wading in pointing fingers, you'll get yourself hurt. Play it cool and be a Watcher on this one ;)
