Gone but not forgotten

Greetings,

Bike got stolen this morning out of apt gated indoor garage around 11:30am. They cut both locks, took the chain and left bike cover. I didn't even have the bike for 1 whole year yet.

Sucks!

Do you have renters insurance? That should at least supplement vehicular insurance...... Did you finance this? Gap insurance?

Yeah have full coverage insurance. So i'm good but it's just simply the principle. Now, no point in buying another until I live in different circumstances to properly secure it.

Oh wait I actually never thought about using my renter's insurance if needed. I'll have to look into it because I definitely never thought about it. But between the both I definitely have enough insurance to cover my a$$

Does your coverage give you replacement, blue book, market value? Do you have documentation for whatever add ons you did? New tires, etc.... All of that needs to be accounted for when you file your claim. Is there a police report?

Sorry to hear that man. Thieves are some of the lowest of the low. You’ll be riding again I’m sure. This is why I’m paranoid with my bike! Lol

Damn bro I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. I am in the EXACT same boat as you. My 2009 zx6r got stolen from my underground parking in my building last week also. It's such a violating feeling.
What are your future plans? For me....I don't feel comfortable keeping a motorcycle in my building anymore because I know I won't be able to sleep and night, and I will constantly be thinking of my next bike being stolen. My wife and I are seriously thinking about moving.....ya, it's a shame isn't it? Changing a living situation because your paranoid about another bike being stolen, lol.
In regards to renters insurance, you probably won't get anything for it. Renters insurance covers you for items that are IN YOUR suite for theft (TV, Laptop, Jewelry, etc). Vehicles are usually not covered as they are not in you actual residence. It sucks big time. I tried getting $1000 deductible compensated, but no dice.
Anyways, cheer up man, I'm glad you were also covered by insurance...I got paid out too, but the $1000 deductible was the shitty part :@

Watch you local and non local ads for part outs......... perhaps you have some distinguishing marks or something on the bike..........

but thieves suck and all should be shot!

woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Yeah man @rogal88 this sucks for real. But I've decided not to buy another bike as long as I'm living in this apartment environment. There is no way to safely secure your bike and I'm not gonna be rolling it into apartment every night or finding a storage unit. If I can't comfortably have a bike, then fuggeddaboutit, I'll just wait. Definitely got me thinking about other living arrangements for example a house with garage now.

Also, my renters insurance doesn't cover bikes or cars. It only will cover items lost in your car or bike due to theft. But all good.

So for now, it's 4-wheels but i'll get back on 2 soon enough.

I saw the security video. The thieves basically piggybacked thru the gate ...of course a setup as I believe the car in front let them in. They parked beside bike, cut the locks off, broke steering column and rode it out garage. All in like 15 minutes max. Their tags was blurred and also all windows dark tinted even the front windshield. I mean security cameras not HD but you could see enough to understand the moves they made.

But karma is a b*tch so they'll definitely get it back 10 times worst in the end.

Ya buddy, I completely agree with you. There is no way that I'm going to be keeping another bike in the underground parking. It sucks how we get violated like this and then need to figure out a new living situation in order to feel safe storing a bike. I hope I see a fatal accident on the hwy with a stolen "monster kawasaki". I don't wish that on many people, but to the thief, I wish it indeed and wold probably throw a party LOL!
All the best man, let me know who everything ends up working out for you.

when i work out of town, for an extended period, and i bring a bike, i find a nearby storage unit, and park the bike inside a locked unit. 30 bucks a month gives me peace of mind, and 24 hour access, while the bike remains out of the weather. would work for you too, drive to the unit, park your car/truck and go for your ride. the good places have electricity in the unit, and i hook up my battery tender while there. sorry about your bike.
