Hello all, just to let ya know my 2001 r1150gs Mandarin (which ive just paid the FIRST payment on) was stolen last night from outside the front door :spitfire(just hours after getting back from some night time laneing:thumb2) probably a van job as it had no fuel in it so they would'nt have got far! Had a walk round the local area's and nothing, so just got to wait to see how much the insurance is going to stiff me on the valuation! :mcgun
IF they find the bike i doubt very much that they'll find the thieves, gotta love the justice :clap
Bloody thieves they got a 3,500 bike for a nights work and i have to take a day off work, raised insurance and a grand or two out of pocket,At least i'am not a lowlife scumbag who has to steal for a living :thumb:D

If you know some unique characteristics of the bike, post them here, maybe someone will spot it in over the internet in the next weeks. That sucks.

I've a bit of practical experience of this from last week and this seems the best advice...
If you can think of anything that may make it stick out to someone who knows bikes you may strike lucky..
My stolen bike was seen a few days later by someone who recognised the non standard stickers on the bodywork..

Get some pictures up ASAP.. If you don't have em, get in touch with the previous owner.. You could get lucky (I did!)

Ya can change a tank and colours and take stuff off but if the frame numbers tampered with it's easy spotted!!
