"Motorcycle crime is on the increase, bikes and gear are vulnerable to theft or damage. Unlike a car many parts can be removed from a bike with simple tools. Bikers neet protective gear, but this gear is inconvenient to carry around once you reach your destination. Boots, helmets and leathers are expensive and need to be kept safe and dry. Bikers need somewhere to change on ariving at work, a railway or bus station or the cinema for example. Bikers need to know that when they return their possesions will be exactly as they left them.
