Well my number finally came up . Man it took forever for the theives to get to me, but I guess their busy and just tryin to do the best they can to sevice the lowermain land. And a special thanks for stealing my bike now and not say..last month ,when I had a higher declared value on my regular insurance.

Any way the bike was mostly stock with Watsen signals,zero grav screen and
a rare ART pipe.

Sorry about your loss......I was just wondering.....if I'm driving in my truck and I see your sled, I could stop the asshat.....I just need to know if you want it back or write-off?

The silver lining is at least the riding season is over and you aren't bikeless in the middle of summer. Just trying to cheer you up a little because I know how enraged you must be feeling right now.

If you find the prick.....I'll gladly lend you my size 13 steel-toes

I was stolen from my underground....Yah I know ,but Its not a rental building
and its been very safe for years. It apears as an inside job as there was no damage to our gate.


Would I like it back ? Sure if it wasn't thrash. The bike was mint,16k on it and
had the suspension cranked up just right for my 250 lbs.

I don't think I'll ever see it again, but the memoirs of the rides will always remain .

Sorry to hear it. I'll add it to the registry of stolen bikes on the Wiki.

On another note, your declared value has almost nothing to do with what ICBC will pay you for the bike. Assuming you didn't under-insure it, you won't get any more than it's market value regardless of how high your declared value is.

I feel your pain. If you plan to live there long term, you should talk to your strata council about installing cameras. We did that in our building after my bike was stolen, 5 B&E's, my mom's car getting stolen and an attempted theft of my car all within a year. Once the cameras were installed and a timing mechanism on the postal key, break in's have stopped. The timer for the postal key is very important b/c our camera has caught on 4-5 different occasions ppl trying to get in the building via the postal key.

Sorry this happened to ya, having just financially recovered from the 'attempted' theft of my own bike. Mine was an 'inside job', with at least one of the thieves sharing an apartment in my building. Once the guy was busted, we experienced a sudden spike in smash-n'-grabs from cars in the parkade because this guy was suddenly out of a job. 41 cars in 10 days. That's a lot of glass and a lot of cash in insurance deductibles. Every car except mine (newly alarmed, locked, & caged) was broken into. :rolleyes

Just my 2kms here but based personal experience, if you think it was an inside job and/or suspect the thieves come here: keep your comments to a dull roar until you have a better idea of who you're dealing with. Don't lay down the gauntlet and challenge them. In my case (as some of you may recall) I did and things got way out of hand. I almost got myself killed. (No, really.) The local lower-level idiots taunting me turned out to be working for a pro ring, levels of which I'm sure are still in business. It's quite an industry with many layers. Were it not for the VPD, I'd still be 'traveling' as I did for several weeks after my incident. Unfortunately, I still have to move. FWIW, just leave the matter to the VPD and ICBC.

Please don't flame me. ;)

Well that just sucks. I'm not even sure if you want the bike back.

I'm sorry but I can't help it. Maybe.....

Condolences. It's somehow so much more personal, when it's a motorcycle.
Hanging's too good for 'em.
I'll watch for it; hope you'll watch for mine.

This is going to be a stupid question but .......................................... what happens with all the bikes that get stolen? do thieves ride around very cautious so they don't get pulled over? do they get shipped overseas? or do they get stripped and sold for parts because i never got approached while riding or even carrying my lid and asked if i was interested in parts ................... and if i did id be interested ............................................ then tell everyone about it to but them.

That is sad... it's an R1 and it's BLUE!!!... crying shame. Well, as a fellow Burnabian, I'll definitely keep my eyes pealed for it around the neighborhood and beyond. I have a built in blue bike radar, so if it crosses my path, I should notice it. :) Hope you find her in tact!
