:confused: yours?

bummer dude,how did they get it,will keep me ear to the ground

03-18-2010, 08:06 AM
Yup, mine. :crybaby::crybaby::crybaby::crybaby::crybaby:

I am completely and utterly gutted, I really really loved this bike, had it setup for me, and at a stage where I was so happy with it. I didn't think that I would ever get rid of it as it happens - thought it would retire gracefully in the garage.

It was insured, but the excess is high, and my worry now, is that I won't be able to insure one again (for a while). 23 years old, 2 years no claims with a tuono was fine, not much more to insure than an FZ6. 23 year old with 0 no claims, and a theft claim.....well, not looking good....

I will be doing my best to locate it, but I am realistic, I know that the chances are....

I've had a few bikes nicked in my life and I know that sinking feeling when you first make the discovery oh so well.

Bike thieves are the scum of the earth and should all be hung

Bum, sorry to hear that mate. Was it stolen from home or whilst you were out?

03-18-2010, 09:33 AM
From home, overnight I guess.

I will be going over to the petrol station in a little while, there is a 50/50 chance their van used the entrace there, and there is a very slight chance that their van may have been seen on their CCTV going in. I doubt I'd see the reg number, but hopefully a description of the van, or even maybe company details.

Chances are slim - and if they used the other entrance to the pathway, I couldn't see any CCTV anywhere near. I'm just hoping they either went in / out that way.

Good luck with that. F'ing cuunts can't work for their own shiit! :soap:

I feel for you, It was bad enough when some scumbag stole the wives car I can't imagine what it's like to get up and discover your pride and joy has been spirited away...:o

Hope you get it back in good order.:worship:

You'd think with all the cameras around London and the UK, street theft would have died out. Sorry to hear about your loss. I've had 2 bikes stolen and its an awful feeling. One was a beater moped that was lifted in London, but found a few hundred yards away. I was actually sorry to get that wreck back. Guess it was too beat up even for the scumbags.

Cheers guys.

I have driven through every car park / garages I could find, but needle in a haystack doesn't even describe it!

Now, I start watching online.

That really blows ass....that is a killer bike (love the all black look). I really hope you get it back in one piece.

Can you post the VIN in case they are listing/or trying to sell the bike your area, it might help someone spot it if they go to check out a bike for sale.

03-18-2010, 05:01 PM
Good idea.

As the bike is stolen, I think that it won't harm me posting the vin, however, in the UK, there was a batch of stolen blank vehicle registration documents, so someone could potentially make a clone. (Pointless, as the bike is marked as stolen).

However, I think I should be able to post the last few numbers of the VIN in case someone does go to buy it by accident.

I will get something sorted.

feeling for your loss mate, hanging's too good for the thievin bastards:gunner:

Does anyone else find it ironic that six posts down from this one is a question about "how to disable the immobilizer"?

Hay Bro them f*ckers are lower than wale shit, is there any marks on it that would tell me its yours as I work in Angle and I am always riding around London, you never know!!

Gutted for you.

Good luck with trying to locate it.

Distinguishing marks - Tyres were Dunlop GP Racer - so look soft and a little knbbly, and the right hand side of the front tyre has an orange square - pic below.
The petrol tank has quite a few scratches right at the back of the tank, where my belly would be (some scratches in and around the tank pad).
The stickers on the rear fairings were supposed to be grey, but had gone a little dotty coloured / discoloured due to anti-freeze where it shouldn't be.
Very rusty tax disk holder on front / left suspension.
R&G crash bungs on the sides (only the front bungs, not the rear)
Akrapovic / Aprilia Racing exhausts
Short black clutch / brake levers (with orange fittings) - pazzo style, but a different company. I think they were titax.

Dont you love insurance companies. Somebody steals your bike but you have to pay the penalty. You didnt ask to get the farkin thing stolen. That sucks!!
