Thief steals bike from injured rider
Thief pretends to be a Good Samaritan before riding off with stricken the motorbike

A THIEF stole a man's motorcycle after he was left seriously injured at the side of the road.

Glenn Hawkins, 35, suffered a broken collarbone, punctured lung and two cracked ribs after a collision with a cyclist in Bristol city centre.

Shortly after, the thief pretended to be a good samaritan, acting as though he was moving the Kawasaki to the side of the but instead of aiding he took off on his bike.

Speaking to the Daily Mail from his hospital bed, Hawkins said: "I was pretty annoyed and thatís putting it lightly.

"If I had got hold of him, he would have ended up in the hospital bed next to me. Now I just want to get my bike back."

Hawkins had only owned his ZX-6R for one month and was on his way to taking the bike for its first service when the accident happened last Wednesday.

The thief deserves some serious time. That is on low down dirty that doesn't need to be free in society.

I wonder how that plays out with insurance.
And I'm saying nothing in the past or future ever will feel like today

Until I'm parking in an ally just hoping that my is safe.

It happens more than you think. This guy had his crashed gear stolen while waiting on the police back in 2005.

Looks like he was doing the rider a favor...
Rider crashed his bike after only having it a month. Thief or good samaritan is really saving guys life by taking bike away from idiot rider.

Looks like a hero to me!!!!!!
