yep, another stolen thread

Well, it was my turn last night. My ZX-6R got stolen last night from in front of my apartment building. I'm in McDowell Place Apartments, right by 88 and Rt 59. Happened between midnight and 9am this morning.

It was a yellow 02 ZX-6R with a Chief Illiniwek sticker on the windshield. Just my luck that we have thieves with good taste around here

Mitch GSXR and others in the area, hopefully yours are fine....and I recommend getting a storage unit ASAP!!!!

Think the death penalty would be exesive for bike theft? I mean in the old west horse thieves were hung and I can see no reason not to carry on the tradition! I'm really sorry to hear of your loss. May it be found quickly and undamaged.

Damn dude that sucks... State Farm is pretty good about things like that though and quick to pay, at least for the claims I've had with them. But I've never had to deal with a stolen bike claim before. It was a lot easier in Champaign where I just left it outside and never worried about it...

Castrate all bike theives.

Sorry man, mine 04 1K was just taken a couple of nights ago. I hope you got the full coverage ins and you can get a new one soon. Im already looking at replacing my 1K with another one. Fuck those pussy ass babies that cant afford their own bikes. At this rate, we may have to do what some brits were doing overseas. They would put out a decoy bike in a parking lot somewhere and then when the bike thiefs would try to take it, the guys would bust out of a van or somthing and beat the living shit out of the unlucky bike stealer. Its called street justice and I would be more than happy to take some time out of my life to catch some bike thief PUSSIES!!!

Yep, it was between two cars with the cover locked on. I was worried that your bike would be one of the three when the cop told me that!

isn't there a company out there now, that you can put a beacon on your bike so you can track it via GPS?


We should setup a sting like the british. Wear masks and wait till the guy steals the bike. Then beat his ass with baseball bats.

How many people would actually want that though? I wouldn't want a stolen bike back - who knows who those damn thieves treat our babies.

Bunch of tossers

I'm am extremely sorry for your loss. I mean I'm in Chi and though I haven't had anything happen to my bike, I am very paranoid. I am getting the Scorpio Alarm because of that. Some have determined it overkill but I'm like whatever. You lock your house, your car and those have alarms. Why not my damn bike?!
That alarm pages me so I can know right there and then that my bike is in trouble. But hey, this isn't the place to chat about that.
I hope you have a smooth transaction with State Farm.

On another note, can someone explain to me why a stolen bike is treated like the dark plague?

True, that's a good point.

The reason I don't like the idea of getting a stolen bike back is because I spent the past year treating it like my baby. If someone lacks respect enough to steal it, just think about how they treat the bike.

Oh, and thanks for the consolation from everyone

I agree, I dont want my bike back either. I know for a fact that mine was dropped several times when the assholes took it because there was paint from the tail on my womans truck where it hit it and on the ground behind our cars. It looks like they dropped it than dragged it out from between our rides. My had no damage, but hers is bad. So, I dont want a damaged bike back. I kept mine immaculate. I bet they took it for a massive beat up session too. I had just over 600 miles, and I didnt even get a chance to do the first oil change. FUCK YOU PUSSYASS BIKE THIEFS!!!!

Because the cops see it as 1 less sportbiker hooligan off the road for the time being. Theives!

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Sorry to hear about your loss. You guys should seriously consider some sort of alarm system. It's got to help in some way at least. I got the Scorpio FM pager alarm, as well.

damn that's crazy. I have 3 bikes in my garage in naperville and some times I have the habit of leaving the key in the ignition (so I don't lose it) with the door open. They are blocked in by two cars in the driveway but that's crazy to hear that's going on in naperville. Good luck with insurance, I've dealt with state farm before in getting a claim when I low slided and they were very cool about it.

I wouldn't kill a man for stealing something, but I do support what they did in the dark ages. The proper punishment should be to give a pound of flesh. (no painkillers)
