Not very nice to harp on someone who is already feeling shitty! There may be more to the story, ie-waiting for a wreck/tickets to clear in order to get full coverage or add theft, etc.

Sorry to hear about your bike, really sucks. My hubby had 2 bikes stolen while in college, one of which was while we were dating. We parked the bikes (his being in between my bike and a friends bike) and we ran up stairs to change and came back down (seriously 10 min max) and it was gone!! It wasn't even my bike and I was sick! Hope you are able to recover it.

you may not want to disclose publicly the rest of stroy but anything pertaining to the actual theft would help.....i.e. chained to pole?, about what part of town? license plate number?

Best of luck I hope they find your baby in good shape.
Not always, depends on if the the loan is a secured auto loan or a personal credit loan, I believe most dealer financing is non-secured credit card type loans, but I could be wrong.

Was this a generic lock and chain? If not some manufacturers offer money if their gear gets defeated. Would suggest getting a hi end lock if stored outside. Sometimes they will pay if your bike gets stolen and the chain was defeated. This one pays up to 4500.00 toward the bike and costs 150.00....cheaper than comp coverage if you have a bike worth less than 4500.

If you want to share your information via PM Im listening.

As for creditability, see the 'stolen bike section' to see where and how I stand in these situations.


I know the feeling and its an unfair act upon you. Best wishes on recovery.

Taken right off the comments on that sight, from "Al"
"My experience is the “theft insurance” is useless after you look at the fine print (original sales receipt or appraisal from bike shop, and have to send broken lock)."

You can have the best lock in the world, if it isn't locked to something else, it is useless.

I don't know the technical name, but there are flat metal things with wheels on the bottom that you can just set the motorcycle wheel on top of and off you go.

So they don't break that lock, they take it with them. Still out the money.

LoJack is the best way to go IMO.

There are videos of guys cutting through kryptonite locks in seconds and other 'unbreakable' chains.

Fact remains, if they want it bad enough they will take it. LoJack only helps AFTER it is already taken. Out of sight, out of mind; alarm; lojack; chaining up when going out; fullcoverage. And you still wont have piece of mind. Thieves suck.
