- The introduction to Ireland of the Carole Nash DNA+ forensic coding security system is praised by Victor Donnelly, vice-chair of the Irish Motorcycling Action Group, who says “the Carole Nash DNA+ product must be lauded as it is a genuine deterrent to have-a-go thieves. Forensic coding proves a particular irritation to professional thieves as individual components carry a bike’s unique forensic signature making it much harder to break up and dispose of otherwise valuable spare parts. It is refreshing to see such a credible deterrent being introduced to the market, a deterrent that should help in the battle to minimise premiums for hard pressed bikers in Ireland.”
