On Sunday night/Monday morning I have had my Ninja 250r stolen from my parkade in Coquitlam . I have called the cops and ICBC immediately and made a report and claim of what had happened. A week later (today) I got a call from the Langley RCMP that my bike has been recovered in Aldergrove and is now in a tow yard in Langley. The officer told me over the phone the ignition and gas tank locks have been punched, the right side turn signal is cracked and the right fairing is cracked “but other than that the bike is in good condition”. I went there immediately to see my bike and the situation was quite different. The ignition was not punched but hacked off from the bottom, the passenger seat lock was punched and gone, there is damage to the gas tank cap but I didn’t want to touch and lift it in case there were any finger prints on it. The front and rear turn signal got smashed the handle bar end and brake leaver are scuffed up, the exhaust pipe is scuffed up, the right side fairing is cracked like they said and there are numerous scratches on the right side fairing and on the gas tank. Basically the bike was dropped on the right side. The seat has been removed, I’m not sure there is a battery in the bike any more. There is damage to the passenger seat section and maybe the storage compartment. I didn’t want to touch and mess with the evidence.
However the most disturbing thing was that the thieves have added some kind of silver leaf pin striping shit to the bike in a way that I almost didn’t recognize that it was mine. I was fucking stunned. If it would have passed me on the street I would have not given it a second thought that it be mine. WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT ALL ABOUT!!! I can verify that it is mine by the VIN number and also the tank protector that I put on and the swing arm spools. I’m sure there is more damage but the tow yard people didn’t give me too much time to inspect it.
Any ways, ICBC will pick it up and tow it to their claim center on Tuesday and do an estimate and all that stuff. Is anyone gone through something like this? Does anyone know what I should expect from ICBC? I had full coverage except for collision and there was not damage to the bike what so ever before this whole thing happened. I’ve had it for about 4 months and I bought it new from Burnaby Kawasaki.
