Maple Ave., 20:00 last time I saw it... Full black Termignoni on it. License plate: 90TB23 (temporary one).
 
Thx for sharing!!!

Dude that sucks, and just a month old with temp plates still. You have insurance with theft coverage by chance?

Engaging with people that have personality disorders on a message board is like arguing with a rock.

Hi,
 
Full coverage, accessories included (in theory), let's ask for the police report first then talk to the insurance... :S

- Full black termignoni, maybe the only one in NY.
- Snake skin tank grip
- OEM radiator guard (it says FZ-07)
- Smoke Puig fly screen
- Tail tidy
- DMP integrated clear tail lights
- LED front headlight
- LED flushmounts from TST industries at the front
 
If you add the flashy rims that come with it, it must be a unicorn...
 
Oh, I have $1000 of deductible, but the rest should be covered, accessories included
 
Thanks again, FZ-07 family!

Safe riding!

Yeah, go4geoff, we'll see - I'm pretty confident that if it doesn't appear, the insurance will pay almost everything and I'll go for another FZ-07 again... 
I'll keep you updated!

I know the feeling of this, I'm in Sunnyside and had a WR250X taken few years ago. Had paid it off and lowered my coverage with insurance to save some money, total lost. I even asked the cops writing the report what would be the possibility of them finding her again, they told me it was gone and they never find any. I now garage my bike all the time and when I need to keep her outside I chain her up no matter what. I hope they do find it but chances are they won't NYPD don't care to find bikes here, sorry.

When did your insurance declare it a total loss? 
I just had my Grom stolen last Tuesday. I'm with Progressive and my rep mentioned they usually wait 3 to 4 weeks before claiming it a total loss.
 
I posted it in another thread, but I'll repost it here too. [/url]/r/Motorcycles had an Ex-Thief and Chop-Shop operator do an AMA a couple years ago. He was in New York too. This is WELL worth the read if you're someone that doesn't have a garage to park in.
 
 
 
Too many assholes out there taking things that aren't theirs. Sometimes I lie awake at night wondering if my Grom is thinking about me. Is it even still alive? Poor guy was only 6 months old. Only had the pipe on it for 2 weeks. :'( My FZ-07 is a blast... but the Grom is a whole other level of fun. My commute will never be the same again.

Sorry to hear that... I notified Dairyland/Sentry the same day, they just waited for every documentation and keys to be received in order to proceed with the payment. As the NYPD theft report takes 4-6 weeks to be received, this was the waiting time. They said however it's usually 1 month until they declare it "total loss"...
 
Today I sent the report and they got back to me requesting some physical copies of docs missing - a cheque will be emitted hopefully next week. Now I know my bike is moving  from garage to garage, and even then, get a good disc lock and chain if possible... this world is crazy... :S
 
P.D. Check your police report for mistakes - they included my exhaust pipe, but according to them it was $7 instead of $722... however my insurance took into account this difference.

Safe riding!

Fort Worth PD didn't take anywhere near level of detail for their report. So I'm not sure that I'll need to wait any amount of time for that.
 
I have a disc lock on my FZ, but I'd really like to by a Kryptonite anchor and a chain. That's what I needed for the Grom. Way too easy to pick up and throw in a truck/van.

If economy would allow, I'd get the next chain, posted somewhere in this forum:

For locks, I'd go with Abloy locks, but again, these are expensive. But if you think about it... this really brings you peace of mind!

The best peace of mind you can have is thief coverage, not even a garage is safe anymore.
My garage was recently broken into and they took all of my tools, I have installed cameras now but not even those are a sure thing.
