As far as the insurance fraud, My brother is a PI for insurance fraud cases. It really wouldn't be hard. Unethical? Yes. Would I have done it? Most definitely.
Its not like that was my plan all along, I really just never thought about theft insurance. I have no clue why. Prolly cus I just payed a full year insurance when I first got the bike.
This is just gold, can't wait until you file a claim and redirect the ins companies to this post.

I feel your pain. When I got my bike I just never thought about theft insurance. All I was thinking about was whether full coverage was worth the money in an accident. Mine was stolen in January. I did all the same you said, went to all the local shops with pics of my bike, combed craigslist, nearly got whiplash when I heard a bike that sounded like mine.

I got the call this morning that it's been recovered. I haven't gotten it out of impound yet, still trying to figure out how to transport it. However it looks good so far. Minor damage to plastics (probably looking for lojack) every keyhole raped like a child molester in prison, and the front rotors are off the bike with the calipers hanging.

Most importantly, it was recovered in the bed of a stolen truck. The truck was stolen from a dealership. The dealer wanted their truck back today, so they have paid all the towing charges. Once I get a truck, I get to take her out free and clear. If you don't count the $600 or so I'm going to pay to put the brakes back together with new pads, oil change, and inspection. Or for that matter the price of a new set of tires.

Make sure the lot isnt going to charge you storage fees, which are separate of towing fees......

Im assuming the dealership took posession of their truck and left the bike at the storage facility. Usually, each day its at the lot, it racks up storage fees.

Dealership took their truck, and the fine folks at Oak Ridge PD did not charge me any impound fees. I can't post pics right this moment because it's sitting at Cycle Shack North waiting for them to get to it for an estimate. I was going to go by and get pics tomorrow. Depending on how bad it is I might just sell for parts.

Didn't mean to jack the thread, just saw someone else got their bike back and figured I'd share.

So I have been too distraught/depressed to share with my motohouston family that my 2011 Ninja 250r was stolen last Wed.
I was installing a new LED break light on it for several hours Tuesday night, probably till 11pm. I woke up around 5am to go to work, went outside....yep, gut wrenching-heart dropping-instant depression, my bike was gone.
I waited till the apartment complex office opened up, just to make sure that it was not towed for some silly reason before making a theft report.
Of course it was not towed and I dialed the police.
Soon as I made a full report with the officer my heart dropped again- I didn't have theft insurance and I realized I should have called an insurance, bought theft, waited two days and then filed stolen report... but it was too late. Since my bike is my only vehicle besides my girlfriends I had to go out and buy a beater truck.

A few days later I phoned the number on my theft report card and asked for any information on my stolen bike. I was told "No, we have nothing and WE will call YOU if we do find it, okay??" Wow....okay...

SO, I did the only thing left, I searched up and down Craigslist, eBay, cycle trader, EVERYWHERE. It has some very unique mods so I knew I could spot it despite a color change or whatever. , I even looked for it on the streets on the weekends. Nothing.

I chalked it up as a dumb loss, being that it wasn't chained up to anything only locked the handlebars. Guess I thought my cop neighbors cop car that always parks next to me would deter thief's. Nahhhppp...

After 1 week I gave up hope of finding it. I knew it had to be in a chop shop already stripped down on its way to Mexico or wherever the . Its kind of sad but I got really, really depressed I loved my baby.

Anyways, last night a random number calls me around 1am, and a lady from the police asks me if my bike is still missing. Next she tells me that a cop stopped someone and that it MIGHT be my bike and she will call me back.
I try not to get my hopes up just in-case its not mine, she calls me back finally after the longest wait of my life lol, and tells me that they did find my bike but that it had been wrecked. At this point Im really too happy to give a flying , as long as it still had the engine and tires.

I go to the tow lot at 3am and get the full story from the police. They stopped the dude in greens point (Of course...) for no license plate. He ran, ditched the bike in the grass and got away.

The bike is in pretty good condition id say. All the fairing screws missing from them pulling off looking for lo-jack Im guessing, all the key holes are bashed in (ignition, gas cap, back seat cover) wires to the ignition are cut, cops said that it was leaking oil all over the place, license plate missing and all the custom decals are gone. But they did add some new stickers of there own, lol. Got raped by the tow lot and paid 315 bucks to get it out. Threw it in my truck and the happiest mother you ever saw drove back home with his bike in the back of the truck.

SO I'm moving the bike to Katy tonight to stay in a garage while I fix it up and get theft insurance, but I'd have to say I'm the luckiest right now.
Guess I'm part of that, what....15% that gets their stolen bike recovered?

DON'T MAKE THE MISTAKES I DID, GET THEFT INSURANCE, CHAIN IT UP, WHATEVER YOU GOT TO DO!

I will post some pics of the damage in just a little bit. Hope anyone missing their bike gets as lucky as me!!

Congrats man! Got mine back too! part of that 15% clan!
