Dean said: "I was shocked, saddened and angry all within a short space to experience something like that and how people can be so disgusting taking away people's pride and joy. I feel lost without the bike, as it becomes part of yourself. It's quite alarming how common it's becoming across the country and it's something that isn't spoken about enough.
