You've got to have your wits about you for sure.
Was there a few months back looking in the shop window while my mate took a leak having just pitched tents etc. Some shifty looking fella picked up my friends bike then asked what it was worth, also enquired about the value of mine.
Is that really the first/most appropriate question from one rider to another? Told him to **** off.
Next day we did Cwmcarn, stopped off for snacks afterwards when one chav was stood next to our bikes clearly having a 'coded' conversation on his phone. Moments later theres six of them eyeing up our bikes and us. Def. scouting for an opportunity
Its easy for people to switch off and go into holiday mode when they're away for the weekend, enjoying the scenery etc.
Being a cynical git stops me from losing my precious bike to some scroat.
