The outpouring of support and generous offers “completely bowled” Mr Nealon over.
“I feel ecstatic, feeling over the moon,” Mr Nealon told 9News.
One of those offers came from business iScoot New Farm, who today gave Mr Nealon a completely new $2000 electric scooter for free.
iScoot General Manager Steve Rutherford said the blatant daylight robbery is becoming a more common occurrence in southeast Queensland as the vehicles become more popular.
“Throughout the Brisbane region, there’s been a number of scooters stolen, particularly off city streets and very brazen theft as well,” Mr Rutherford told 9News.
Some tips to help up and coming riders secure the scooter include:
- Lock up your scooter with a decent chain or steel lock
- Choose a scooter with an ignition key
- Install an immobiliser
- Think about where your park your vehicle
