Motorbike thieves in Civic

By johnboy 19 November 2013 10

stolen bike

This just in:

Last night or early this morning someone decided they needed my brand new KTM 200 EXC 2013 model more than I did. It is brand new and I haven’t even gone for a ride.

Stolen from Allara St in the City, opposite the pool in a restricted access garage, it was chained up and they took that also, no evidence of it being cut etc.

Rego: 88722. No mirrors and the stock orange hand guards replaced with orange barkbusters.

If anyone sees it, or the people, can the police be called, or an email shot off to

rtk421@gmail.com (It’ll be received instantly)

There is no such thing as a secure carpark unless there is someone on the gate with a gun.

And the person with the gun isn’t corrupt.

When I got my first job, I bought a new motorbike. It was my pride and joy. The morning after I picked it up I rode it in to work and, at lunchtime, took my workmates down to show it off. It was gone.

Here’s what I suspect happened…

The place I’d bought it from sent some crooks to follow me in and see where I’d parked it. Once I was safely out of sight, they, undoubtedly dressed in overalls with “Honest John’s Motorbike Repair” picked it up, chain and all, and loaded it into a van. No doubt the profits were split with the shop that sold it to me.

No doubt the same scam’s still working.

Of course I reported it to the police – a waste of an hour that I’ll never get back.

I’m curious. Did you wear your tinfoil hat over your motorbike helmet or was the tinfoil protection enough?

I believe the OP now has CCTV photos of the offenders. Hopefully he’ll have them posted up soon.

I would of thought it would be safer to park in a secure parking area. I will always park my MC in the public spots from now on.

I know of a certain “secure” carpark that’s broken into on a regular basis. A locked carpark has its own pros and cons.

I’ve noticed over the last six months that there is more human waste polluting Civic than usual. Perhaps a day time cull is in order?

There’d be less opposition to it than to the kangaroo cull.

There’s a house near me where I suspect some stolen motorbikes go to be rehomed, I’ll keep an eye out for that one, it’s rather distinctive.

How the heck did they manage that?? I would of thought it would be safer to park in a secure parking area. I will always park my MC in the public spots from now on. I hope they catch these losers and you get your bike back that is brutal. I hate bloody thieves, get a real job and buy your own MC.

Oh btw have you posted on CanberraRiders.org? There is a section for stolen bikes and it is quite a big community of MC riders.

Good to see security doing their job. I’ve noticed over the last six months that there is more human waste polluting Civic than usual. Perhaps a day time cull is in order?
