Rideout to protest motorcycle thefts

Enough is enough

Action is demanded!

An organisation called Motorcyclists of Ireland will be organising a rideout on this coming March 23rd. The object of the exercise is to bring attention to and  protest against the alarming rise in organised motorcycle thefts here in Ireland and particularly in Dublin.

This event has been organised by a group of concerned riders as well as motorcycle enthusiasts and it aims to raise awareness about this issue. As part of this the group will also be calling and call for greater resources to allow An Garda Siochana to combat this criminal activity.
