"We must deal with the problem of bike thieves at its source, by killing them."

I'm just working up a cool and balanced solution to this problem. Stand by. There is currently a motorcycle and moped theft epidemic in the UK, specifically in London. Bike theft numbers in the capital have almost do. drivetribe.com. Все. James May posted in JAMES MAY 'S CARBOLICS | DRIVETRIBE.

James May, former Top Gear co-host and current presenter for The Grand Tour, wrote a compelling piece for DriveTribe as a solution for motorcycle theft. May's proposal is that "we must deal with the problem of bike thieves at its source, by killing them."

His article comes across as equal parts sincere and satirical. He's an avid motorcycle enthusiast and he's passionate about the issue of thieves "nicking" (British slang for stealing) bikes. His logic is that since bikes continue to get stolen, that must mean the police are unwilling or unable to enforce motorcycle theft effectively. The next logical step for May is capital punishment for anyone caught nicking bikes.

In May's words; "It's just that the law isn't being enforced. The police seem unwilling or in some way unempowered to deal with it, the aggrieved people are unable to convene courts to try the perpetrators even if they could be caught, so they'll just have to be killed. That way, they won't nick any more bikes."

May gets political in a few places stating he's "like any civilised person, am vehemently opposed to capital punishment and any other form of state-sponsored murder." He goes on to say he'd be okay with a desperate person stealing his coat because he has the means to just buy a new one.

His compassion ends there as he gets back to the topic of killing motorcycle thieves. May says that bike thieves "are just wankers nicking bikes for profit, so we should kill them."

  Tesla Model X, Reportedly on Autopilot, Hits Police Motorcycle in Arizona We are constantly told self-driving cars are the future, but for all the autonomous capabilities being added on high-end new cars, a machine that can handle 100 percent of your A-B trips while you take a nap has yet to be developed. Even the vaunted Tesla Autopilot, the company constantly reminds us, is designed to be used with a person's full attention (and hands on the wheel).

This Top Shelf Gin Is Infused With Old Harley-Davidson Parts .
I once tried a beer for no reason other than because it was named "Old Engine Oil." We've written about H-D's sales and marketing woes, but we absolve the motorcycle manufacturer of any responsibility for this one. The Archaeologist is the brainchild of Uwe Ehinger, who describes himself as a motorcycle archaeologist with a love of Harleys. "Every time I make a find of rare bikes, I wonder how to use every single part–because they deserve to be preserved," reads the web site. "That is where the idea for ‘The Archaeologist’ emerged: preserving the spirit of the old machines in an actual spirit and make it possible to experience the taste.
