Possible stolen cotic rocket(Dalkeith/Midlothian) area ?
Passed a chap on a black cotic/white fox fork around 15:45 today on lugton brae heading towards town.. Think it was full sus(rocket) not 100%
The pilot and bike never looked quite right to me… Clothing etc..
If it was genuine owner out for a spin in civvies I apologise 🙁

Looking at link I’m pretty certain that was indeed the bike.. I was at the time contemplating a u-turn but
With only a hunch it could have been a bit Benny hill !!!
Now I know it’s stolen I’ll be keeping an eye out.. Don’t know if the tea leaf lives in Dalkeith and
Heading to Gilmerton or Danderhall both close to Hospital or was heading home ??
Maybe he thinks its been long enough to break cover and use it regular( hopefully)
Hope we have a happy ending …Posted 4 years ago
Hello, I did post some months ago that I’d had my beloved cotic rocket stolen from outside the royal infirmary, and I’d almost given up hope. I still have an outstanding reward for the bike. If you see it, you could call the police and they can take custody of it until I claim it. Alternatively, if you could find out where it’s being kept, I could go myself (with some biker friends) and reclaim it personally. Please keep me posted if you see/hear any more.Posted 4 years agoandrewhMember

What direct action did you have in mind PlusOne? I would merely suggest following him home and reporting it, unless you come across it unattended.
This site never ceases to amze me, 5 months on and someone spots a bike nicked from a fellow forumite, nice work!wheeleeneeleeMember
I saw what I reckon was a black Cotic Rocket with an ‘unusual rider’ this morning. I remembered one was stolen from RIE and I searched the forum and found this thread. I saw it this morning 7.45am ish south of Edinburgh Bypass heading in opposite direction to what OP saw – towards Lugton Brae.Posted 4 years ago
Great that people are still spotting my bike. I still haven’t seen it in my visits. Hopefully I’m able to spot it, or someone is able to locate it soon.Posted 4 years ago
If I get it back I’ll definitely be hosting a bikers bbq as a thank you for all the support I’ve received from the biking community.LesterMember
Just a thought, if it is the stolen bike, how would you know that was the scrote that stole it?Posted 4 years ago
when i look in the for sale forums, rarely do i see anyone ask if the seller has proof he came by it legally. i have also bought stuff and not asked if it is the sellers legal property. a pretty grey area that we either hope for the best, choose to ignore or go by gut feeling
