Thanks for the email, John. Interesting stuff (if worrying) and I've passed it on to Olly, our product tester, for his perusal.
I may also stick in on the letters page...
Very best wishes

I just thought I'd bring to your attention the fact that some u-locks and disc locks with the circular type of lock fitted can be opened with something as basic as a pen. When I first heard of this I tried it on one of my Oxford disc locks with the plastic cap off a small dental brush. Within 10 seconds the lock was open. Some of these locks are sold with the "Sold Secure" label on them. It rather makes a mockery of that label.
Here's a link to the thread on the Honda VFR Club website that bouight it to my attention:- http://www.bikersoracle.com/vfr/for...8421#post358421
Hopefully you'll be able to bring it to the attention of your readership in RiDE magazine.
