So forgive me if i vent a bit here in this thread but i have a little pent up rage this weekend.
I guess ill give you a bit of background, i live in Victoria but purchased the bike up island so decided to stop and my parents place in the Cowichan valley and have a little visit. They live on the end of a dead end road in the middle of nowhere and have lived there for 17 years, never had one problem.
Anyways, So I finally get my new 600RR, well not new but it was a MINT and I mean MINT not one scratch, never modded 2004 Metallic Blue. So i bought the bike friday afternoon, got all that done, threw er in the truck and took it home. By the time I got home it was about 7 or so so i could insure it. There are no late night insurers in the area so i didnt think much of it, il do it tomorrow right. No big deal. So i unload the bike and put it away in the back of the garage just in case right.
Well, of course thats the night right, i'm assuming two or three guys came and broke into all three cars at the house, stole a bunch of tools outta my truck, cleaned out some stuff from the garage, ghadda ghadda, insured stuff right no big deal really. But then they decided to take the bike, rolled it away down the road, I'm assuming they tried to unsuccessfully get it going, crashed in the process smashed up BOTH sides of the bike pretty bad, ill post some pics. So looks like ill be doing some E-Bay shopping. At least it only cosmetic, she still runs fine:
Long story short, Lesson Learned:
ALWAYS USE STEERING LOCKS, CHAIN THAT SHIT UP, GET AN ALARM, AND MAKE SURE YOU GOT COVERAGE.
Oh yeah and they kept the seat???????
