Hi Rollos.

That's bloody terrible, really feel for you mate, I know you loved that 8gen. Any insurance? And if you did have insurance would you be able to pick up another one? Hope the police may be able to help you, any chance there may be some form of security camera footage you could get hold of? Hope they catch the bastards and cut their f...ing hands off, no sympathy for these pricks.

 

All the best Rollos hope you get the bike back or something to replace it.

Good Luck.

Regards.

I can't even imagine, I hope you are able to replace it.

Once your insurance clears fly out to the west coast and grab a new old stock VFR from Portland, then have an epic ride back!

 

Seriously though that sucks, I feel for you.

Have the same bike. I have to take the chance of thievery seriously.

Will be more diligent in keeping it in sight when parked, though it's stuck in the garage til at least April

Dude, you don't have to leave the site. You may want to get another VFR. Maybe a a little older one. 

Super sorry to hear about it, though. My 1990 got stolen in 91. Savages did it by candlelight (I'm guessing, as there was candle wax all over the gas tank and triples). They put 121 miles on her and dumped her out by a lake outside of Raleigh NC. It was found by the Sherriff department two days later, but they didn't contact me for the two longest weeks of my life (at that time...). Insurance paid to fix her up. They wouldn't do that anymore these days - 10k worth of damage on a $7200 bike. She lived with her original motor until October of 2000, and that motor broke the day we rolled over the speedometer back to 00000. A donor motor from a 91 was placed in March 01, and got to 03 before the electrical Gremlins came back. She is with a VFRD member now, up near you - in the Catskills, being rejuvenated and refreshed. I hear her front legs have grown to 51mm, and flipped topsy turvey so they look upside down! She has 6 pot brakes now too. Soon the planets will align, and we will bring her back to life! New legs, magic legs! shiny bits, and a nice new red dress from Italy.  

Moral of the story: keep dreaming. (as the song says "keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart..."). Mine will be ready soon from Sebspeed Customs. So keep on dreaming. Keep moving, but don't try and forget these good people. If the VFR got you, it's not easy to forget, as she does so much well, she is addicting. Not the fastest, but plenty fast. Not the prettiest, but dang the girls like them.  And Wheelies...

Chin up, mate!

That is awful. Sorry to hear about your loss. I know it would put some serious hurt on my feelings. Hopefully you'll get an insurance settlement and be back on two wheels before you know it.
