We don't have to worry too much about that stuff nowadays here in Central Toronto , Canada .Those big seat knobs make it easy to lose a seat as it makes it easy for some scumbag to just undo and take what don't belong to them as in my case back in 79, my seat and kick starter my bike was under my granny's house with the dreaded blown lay shaft bearing when they came in under darkness while I was out, to this day I never replaced those big knobs just use nuts done up tight so need a spanner to undo them.
I did end up finding the person who did steal it but proving it at the time as he was converting a interstate to a roadster at the time and had already sold the bike on before I found out who it was, I won't say no more but just to say I got payback many years later and let him know I knew it was him.
I think Australia was a Penal colony at first stages of English repression.
Pirates and all that.
And common thieves.
Nowadays I can not worry about who would mess with my Snorty.
Police tell me this is a super safe neighbourhood. Only compliments the past 13 years , even from occasional wandering boozed up losers / homeless types.
I work with Police and Community Watch.
