If you really think I would have changed YOUR life by committing insurance fraud and collecting MAYBE 2,000

AS I SAID, I have theft now. Not that it matters.
IF it did effect you and raised your rate then I am so sorry,
get a new insurance because were obviously using the same one.

As someone who pays over $3K/yr to insure cars/bikes, you're argument to commit insurance fraud is not going to gain any empathy from me.

Whats your brothers opinion on insurance fraud?

kinda wish his bike hadn't been recovered. and yes Kevolution....your 2k bogus claim does affect me and everyone else on this board. I find it even funnier that you'd risk getting caught up in INs fraud over 2k.

As far as I'm concerned. What the is the difference if i pay the theft insurance company a week before it ACTUALLY gets stolen. Or I pay them the same amount of money two days AFTER it gets stolen.

Anyways. As far as all this "Im sad you got your bike back" Well, I really hope you never have to go through all the hassle of getting your bike stolen.

This is really a mute point. There was no insurance fraud committed.
This story was not about insurance fraud, so I'm really not going to argue with anyone any longer about the subject.

I really have NO idea where the leaking oil is coming from. The filter, nor the drain screw are loose. And As far as I can see there is no crack anywhere. Kind of worries me that it might be something serious

Glad you got your bike back. I didn't know thieves were actually aiming for 250's too. Nothing's safe.

I won't. I PAY for theft coverage from day 1....not 4 days before, not 2 days after....the whole policy length. Who is your agent? I'd like to forward them your thread.

What a boring read for an insurance agent.
"Holy they almost did something bad but then they didn't.....I gotta do something about this!"

Yeah bro, that's exactly why I never really worried about it that much.
This wasn't an organized crime though. A chop shop or motorcycle theft ring wouldn't waste time on a 250. But who knows. Chop it up and make money of individual parts? Everyone needs parts for their bikes. Even 250s.

Did anyone hear about that story in NYC?
They busted a chop shop I think due to a missed lo jack, arrested a couple people yada yada, they made a huge press deal out of it brought all the bikes out to where they were doing the speech to show how many they found and look good. Next day they were all gone again. LoL

Your 250's name must be Spongebob, because you are definitely Squidward.

Why are seriously considering insurance fraud, and taking a stunt pic for your photo on a 250? That's for PP1. Several people like you, that do that, make my insurance rates go up over time. As a fellow rider, I'm glad you got your bike back. However, still as a fellow rider, I wish you were aware that we are honest people trying not to cause public waves with our motorcycles.
