STOLEN 2016 BMW GS Adventure

Postby guyhard » Sun Nov 19, 2017 9:23 pm

Hi all,

This is my first post on here, I'm gutted it that has to be in this part of the forum.

Today my 2016 (65) BMW R1200 GS Adventure, in Red, with all three BMW luggage boxes was stolen from my private parking bay in a gated development, in Isleworth south west London. It had two disc locks on, and two heavy duty chains, a cover and the BMW alarm.

They cut through the front discs and both chains using an angle grinder and made off in broad daylight, even with CCTV all over the bay. Awaiting on the managing agent to get back to me with the footage.

Please please please keep your pride and joy locked, and well insured.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. I have obviously contacted the police who don't attend to vehicle thefts and will get onto the insurers tomorrow, but Id quite like to find out who these people are.

Also, whilst googling bike thefts London, there appears to be a vigilante group out hunting these scum bags, anyone have the contact number?

Oooo That's a bummer.

Just hope your insurance firm don't give you the run around :evil:

Hi Guy
The insurance company may give you some grief, but when you have the video you will be able to show them the bike WAS taken, and WAS locked. I had the run around until the police found the bike, I got the impression the insurance company thought I had not really lost the bike.

As a gated development is the managing agent liable?

Our thoughts are with you. Lets hope it shows up.

Sorry to hear that. My bike was stolen also broad daylight in central London, same situation they cut the disc to get the lock off and cut through the chains. Fortunately I got a quick turn around payout and a reasonable one at that. But do feel your pain as my lid was in my back box which was not covered by insurance. All the best. Anything two or three years old are being targeted at the moment, really makes you want to put a car boot on the bike wheel to keep it safe!

I think it's from the sixties term 'skid lid', for crash helmet as Phil says.

National police budgets have suffered 38% cuts in the last 12 months, with further swingeing cuts in the pipeline; no commitment to abandoning continuing 'austerity' ( i.e. screw the poor ) from Hammond in his recent budget. 30-odd bike thefts a day in London, mainly since the demise of the Anti Bike-Theft team in the GLP due to lack of funds.
Battery-operated angle-grinder owners should be licensed. In a number of recent broad-daylight thefts of bikes, any passerby trying to intervene has been threatened by assault with a hammer wielded by the thief's accomplices. Is this the society you voted for ?
Prolly correct it, please, by voting for a party that will impose more taxes. Taxation is the life-blood of a civilised society.
This is the list of people I'd trust with my bike.

Having had two F650s stolen last year I sympathise with you. The police have neither the interest nor the budget to do anything about vehicle thefts. I know how mad it makes you to have a bike stolen but please be careful with talk of vigilantes as the police seem to have time for chasing those people!

Let's face it until we have a party back in power that puts money back into public services it's open season for scumbags.
