View Full Version : Stolen Mille R
12-21-2001, 01:09 AM
Someone asked for the story, bike was ina gated apartment complex garrage that required a garrage door opener to open and close. They just forced the gate open, drove to my unit, dragged my TL/S Street Fighter outta the way, scratching my $500.00 gas tank paint job just for added insult, and took the mille in a van I assume as no one heard it start during that day (between 12 and 3 PM!, broad daylight, 2 white guys were seen looking at my bike around that time, but were assumed frioends of mine). The bike was covered weith an exspensive cover that they took as well. So, best chain and lock you can afford, lock all your bike together so they can't lift em. I'm looking into data tagging and to see if anyone has invented a GPS style system yet so we can all get together en mass and track the F0ckers down and steal their balls!
Blk 2001 Mille R Stolen from Los Angles California area. Two Bros slip on, Misc Evolzione parts, Regis Laconi and Troy Corser signed tail section, melted plastic behind rear of exhaust and spider webbed headlight screen.

Bike theives should die a painful death and rot in Hell. At least the damn thieves have good taste, or they are completely ignorant about Aprilias since they aren't very common and should raise suspicions if they try to sell off the bike/parts.
Which color scheme is it? I hope you get her back intact.

As a fellow rider who just had his R6 stolen (I say just but it happened on 9/11 and STILL is unresolved with my insurance company) and recovered - completely shagged - I feel your pain. And something that's autographed like that is even more painful.
I hope they catch the bastard and "accidentally" cut off his hands. 'Cause death is the easy way out.

I live in LA. And this is my biggest fear. Tell us what happened so we may hopefully learn from your totally unfair experience.
Hope they catch the guy and throw him off a cliff on to a pile of burning spikes.

I reposted on another sportbike board that I frequent. More eyes and ears the better. You might want to keep a lookout on Ebay as most likely the bike will be parted out.
good luck man...I feel for you.

A 2001 R's body parts have just been posted on ebay. Colors are black/red. No damage on them. Don't know where its located. Kind of unusual someone posts body parts that have no damage. Now i'm trying to start anything, but when I saw this on ebay, I remembered your post in this forum.

Micah / Ed:
Could you consider opening a Stolen Motorcycle category under General on the Discussion Page? A template could capture owner demographics, VIN, engine number, where it was stolen from, date, unusual / aftermarket identifying features, etc.
I would envision this solely as a repository location without thread content. The present small size of the Aprilia community makes stolen part sales conspicuous.
I know of at least 7 breakins at 3 different motorcycle dealerships here in Maryland over the past 6 weeks. Would do my soul good to know that some of these scrotally challenged lads ended up as somebody's boy.
a buddy of mine forwarded this to me. he's a techie and i'm a computer dunce...but...i had an RSV Mille R stolen recently and he thought this page might give me some comfort and that i might want to share the info with you guys. here's the story...
i live in an area called toluca lake (north hollywood) in a condo complex with an enclosed, private, gated, underground parking structure. my bike was parked there, chained to steel bars inside the structure with a kryptonite cable lock and there was a small kryptonite disc lock at the rear.
it was stolen on december 18th, 2001 between 12:30pm and 6:00pm (also, right in the middle of the day). i had a ducati 851 stolen right here in this very same neighborhood a few years back too. but it was on the street outside a restaurant where i was having dinner with some friends.
i'm @#%$ SICK AND TIRED of pieceofshitmotherfuckinasshole bike thieves!!! i swear to god i'm gonna start a task force of bike enthusiasts who lie in wait for these bastards. we're going to proclaim (and impliment) our own laws and esablish a new world order. i'm collecting weaponry and explosive materials as we speak, and i'm constructing a special torture chamber to keep bike thieves alive and in excrutiating pain for no less than one year...or the amount of time it takes me to feel better about my loss (whichever is LONGER). i never got over the ducati. i don't see myself feeling better about the aprilia anytime soon either.
sorry, just venting. no one seems to understand how incredibly @#%$ UP having a bike (that you love) stolen from you feels. people say, "ah yeah, what a drag..." @#%$ THAT!!!! it's worse than a drag and i can't do anything about it!!!
and then the insurance company treats me like i'm a paria. i could kill them too.
anyway, it was a late model (december) 2000 RSV Mille R, black white red color scheme. it had all the regular carbon fiber stuff plus extras (clutch cover, oil cover, side panels, etc...), a titanium exhaust & chip, frame sliders and crash bumpers (4).
if i'd known about this site i would have shouted out sooner but i just heard about it yesterday.
sorry to hear about all everybody else's thefts too. i am SOOO right there with you.
"here is somethin' you can't understand...
i could just...KILL A MAN. . .! ~cypress & rage
talk to y'all...daft

Same day mine was lifted in the south bay! Had to have been the same team. Mine was in a parking garrage in an apartment. hey broke the electric gate between 12Pm and 3Pm. I'm a cop in the Air Force and will be locking it on base under armed guard when not riding till I move overseas in the spring. You going to replace it? My insurence hooked me up well, and I went to Reno for a new one.

I'm sure that you guys already know this, but I'll throw it out there anyway. I had my 99 hayabusa stolen about a year ago. Never found anything on it so I started asking around to see if I could find a way to get a stolen bike. ( Find some of the SOB's who steal them and see if they happen to have a Busa.) Well I did find 1 slimmy bastard who steals them. He told me to let him know what I wanted and he would find one and snake it. I asked him how you make it so you can register it and make it legal. He then told me to find a totaled one and buy it and he has a stamp machine to change the numbers on the stolen bike to the numbers on the salvage title. I then asked him if he had any bikes on hand and he said that he only gets them when somebody wants them. So no joy... I hope this helps everybody out. This is what we are up against. If somebody know how to beat this let me know.

I see most of these thefts were in the Los Angeles area. I grew up in LA and learned to ride and race there.
3 of my motorcycles were stolen while I lived there. All taken from Apt/condo parking complexs. It pissed me off so much that I quit buying new top of the line bikes. I bought older bikes in so-so shape, promising myself I'd never own another new/nice motocycle while I lived in other than a house with a garage.
It also made me so paranoid, I never took my bike to a place where I couldn't see it. Meaning, I wouldn't got to restaurant, park it on the street if I couldn't see it. Unfortunately, this attitude has come with me to Colorado, where my wife doesn't understand this.
And riding there (LA)I met some of those thieves. Some that would jack you for your bike in the middle of the day in the middle of an intersection. They'd put a gun to you and make you get off the bike or they would hit you while you were on your bike, knocking you off the bike and taking your bike.
I also met guys that stole bikes, got caught and served time he told me, they would take your order and bring you that bike for 500 bucks hot as hell. If you wanted it parted, that was 1k to 2k. They even would resassemble the bike for you if you bought engine cases and a frame from the dealer for a total of 3-4k.
Even now in my garage, my bikes are locked and chained together with a Kryptonite New York Chain...

What do you think a MIlle Cube goes for?
Could ask my cousin the Atlantic City Union Iron Worker, but he would probably say, well a lap dance goes for $10, and a Bl$% J*( goes for $%^, and a F$%^ goes for $%^& and make sure you where your rain coat.
So ahh, what do you think the lead time would be on a Cube order?
