BIKE STOLEN!!! A black/grey 2008 Yamaha YZR R1.
With R&G Tail Tidy, Meta Systems Def Com T Alarm, new Pirelli Corsa III tyres. No other mods. Had a Squire MC4 with SSC50 shackle still attached. Unfortunately, it was stolen sometime in the last 10 days. It was stolen from the Battersea area (SW11). No use giving number plates as they were ripped off.
Any information or if you see (!) it please call police or ring myself 07916585023.
Proper gutted for you fella keep my eyes peeled mine is sitting locked up uninsured aswell must get on the case.
dan when i was in bow mine sat in a garage a mile away in the winter it could have been robbed months before i clocked.
I saw one just like it in New Cross today at around 3:55pm
Dude was filtering behind me all the way to Camberwell Green and then went straight on towards The Oval. Didn’t seem like he wanted to pass me… might have been because I had my helmet cam on?? Thought it was a bit odd as he could have blasted past me easily with me on my GSX650F.
Anyway, it had damage on the offside front fairing. Mainly scratches, but the fairing had come away from the mountings a bit too.
Also, it had after market exhausts… Not sure which kind.
Bad luck your security sounds half decent too, was it shackled to a ground anchor?
I know it doesn’t help your cause but I’m not sure I’d have left £5,000+ lying around uninsured. It may be of interest to others reading this with SORN bikes, even though a bike is SORN it’s still possible to insure it against theft. As mentioned above the best deal would probably be by adding it to your house contents insurance.
The chances are slim but best wishes for a recovery.
I aint seen mine in about two months i know its under the cover though dan im very anal about my garage though make sure their is no one about when i tip in to my flats i aint even got one mate that knows which one is my garage is when i have had mates meet me here for a ride out i make sure i get the bike out well before they’re due once out of the garage it never leaves my sight sounds like whoever chose that paticular garage knew exactly what was in it .
