Sorry to hear that, with all the CCTV cameras around, someone must have something. If you have time look around and see what offices buildings about have cameras, ask them if it would be possible to have a look.
I believe what goes around comes around, won’t be long before they get theirs.
TBH I don’t think it’s quite sunk in yet. Obviously I’m p*ssed of about it but ranting through a keyboard isn’t going to be much help:(
There’s a glass fronted office opposite the bike bay so I’ll pop in there on Monday and ask if they saw anything. There’s also CCTV but it doesn’t point towards the bike bay.
This is the first (and hopefully last) time I’ve had a bike stolen so not really sure what to expect with regards to the insurance co. Just hope it doesn’t go on for ages as I really need the bike for work, not to mention the fact that Spring is finally upon us
Thanks all, but I’ve resigned myself to not seeing it again, it’s definately gone into the back of a van so it’s probably already in bits.
Spoke to the insurance co this morning and they said they’ll give the police 28 days to investigate then they’ll get back to me.
Really p*ssed off with myself as I think I undervalued the bike when taking out the insurance, had a rough guess at £5k not realizing that the insurance co won’t actually pay out any more than this, I thought it was just a rough indicator of value. With the £500 excess I’m really going to struggle to find a similar bike, 2nd hand prices are ridiculous at the moment.
I know what you mean. When my car was stolen, I had to get to university to teach, and it only really sunk in when the weeks went by and I had to endure public transport :crazy:
Used to have a Suzuki GSXR600 ~ I got fed up with coming back and finding my locks tampered with. Hard to tell if it was friend (other bikers just chain-locking their locks for extra security) or foe (thieves). Decided to go obscure and get a bike from a (then) little known and fairly small insignificant manufacturer, until they had to go and release one devastating sports rocket of a bike which has since rocketed up theft rates for these obscure bikes.
Good luck with the fall-out. Spring was friggin’ freezing on the bike today. It was better than the last two Siberian winter months we’ve had though.
