    CBR250R & Kawasaki Ninja 250 Stolen- East Pattaya

    On sep27, about 3:22 am, a Honda CBR250R and a Kawasaki Ninja 250 were stolen from a locked parking area on Soi Siam Country Club. My bike was the CBR250, the one I just bought used, from Sukothai on Aug 6!

    Five pricks on two Honda Waves opened the gate, broke both steering locks, and got away by pushing the bikes with the waves. Got it on CCTV camera, for all the good that will do. Duly reported to Nongprue Police Statiuon, but the bikes are probably already in Cambodia.

    I wish I had invested in an alarm disc lock- that would probably have scared the little b@stards off.

    Be careful guys!

    Here is the CCTV video on You Tube

    Thanks B. No, only the basic government insurance (if you can call it that)

    Not sure if I could have gotten it insured any way- it shows as 2010 in the green book and I'm the third owner, so what would they have reimbursed me? I paid 70k for it. Any way, I became complacent, trusting the locked compound- oh how I wish I had bought a good quailty alarm dis lock!

    ^yep, easy to say after the fact; we all get complacent, but we live and learn. Sorry to hear about the money, hope you get back on the road soon with something even better.

    Have you bought a lottery ticket this week?

    How do I post these pictures???

    I was really happy with the CBR250, some power but not too big/heavy, could still do some lane splitting in traffic. Before the 250, I had an old model (Carb) CBR150r that was excellent in traffic and not too shabby on the road. I bought her in Korat, rode the bus up from Pattaya, did the deal, then road her home.

    Did a grand tour of Pattaya, Chiang Mai, Mae Sot, Kanchanaburi, Pattaya and had a blast.

    Then there were two trips to Chiang Mai on the "Mini Beast" , my E20 fueled Honda Wave CZI. Okay, no flames please

    Now I'm back to hoofing it.

    Cambodia is calling me- the new frontier

    That seemed a very well planned heist though - they knew what they were after, in and out. Sorry for your loss - a reminder to us all to not get complacent.

    Sorry to hear it.

    I used to keep a heavy D lock on the back wheel of my bike.

    You would have gotten 80% of the assessed value back had you insured it for theft- it's a good idea to have full comprehensive insurance in LOS no matter what you ride- I got 40K back on a Honda Wave about 10 years ago when it was taken from the front of my condo (along with several other bikes).

    I hope those thieves get what's coming to them (a long and savage beating).

    Sorry to hear about your bike. I have a new 250CBR and paid cash with no insurance. It is locked up in the house, but I think I will get some comprehensive insurance like FS suggests.

    IF I had a gun in Thailand, I would shoot any bike thief I saw. I have had three cars stolen in the States, but nothing stolen yet in Thailand. We also have a steel gate they would have to get thorough, but it could be done.

    Maybe it's worth getting a tracker installed on your bike which is linked to your mobile. They only cost a few thousand baht somewhere like pantip.

    In hind sight, sure, I wish I would have bought theft insurance. I paid 70k, so 80% of that would be 56k. Wonder what the premium on that would be? I had thought about upgrading my coverage, but more for increased liability incase of an accident.

    Oh how I wish I had bought- and used- a alarm disc lock...

    Naa, thinking maybe I've been in Thailand too long and its time to change locations. Just thinking about my options, I'm retired so I can live any where. Losing the bike, then dealing with, umm, agencies, is a huge wake up call. If you are not "connected" then you're pretty much on your lonesome when it hits the fan.

    Of course bike theft is a huge problem in Cambodia as well. I'm just thinking out loud, so to speak. I rolled the dice, with respect to no theft insurance, so I have to suck it up and take the loss.

    It is what it is.,,

    True- my stolen Wave was recovered three months later in Khon Kaen- it had been mostly stripped, but was still rideable and could be started with a screwdriver- some farmer had bought it for 10K (it was two weeks old when it was stolen)- the insurance company had the balls to ask if I'd return their payment and take the bike back.

    That's odd as I was on my way to panda today to buy a grip lock. But as my Nexx feckin Fastshot system busted for the 3rd time I didn't get there.
    Grip-Lock - Scooter and Motorcycle Security Lock any good?

    I was considering the xena disc lock but I'm worried about setting of with it on!

    Sorry about your bike btw.
    You bullied, you laughed, you lied, you lost!

    Dillie knows the bus station here in Cha-am.
    An old guy I know had just bought a brand new CBR 250 a couple of years ago, there weren't too many about at the time.
    He was pissed on the bus station one night and got his missus' to pick him up.
    Next morning, returned to find that it had been stolen overnight.
    Informed police and insurance co...I think he was paid out.
    Seven or eight months passed, I happened to be sitting having a beer at the OK supermarket, noticed a BIB pass by on a CBR.
    Later that evening I mentioned it to the old guy.
    Long story shorter...He went with his missus' next morning to the police station parking lot, saw the bike and started taking pictures of it. A copper came out to see what was going on. Wifey tells the copper that the bike is her husbands that was stolen several months earlier. Copper contacts the 'owner' who arrives a couple of minutes later...Didn't really flinch, handed him the keys and told the wife that he had bought it in another province for 10,000 baht!
    The bike had been re registered to that province.

    So, the copper 'bought' the practically brand new bike for 10,000 and...Let's not go there!

    That looks really easy to get around. Just remove the brake lever and your off.

    Here is a theft of a Fino- in 10 seconds! The thieves used one of those wedges to break the pins on the ignition lock and rode her off

    I've got a Xena disc alarm (from Panda) and an OnGuard 5046 16mm lock (which weighs several pounds and comes with a belt clip- good luck keeping your pants up)- you might get my bike, but it ain't gonna be easy.

    Most people tell me "Its cut up already" but I'm not so sure. I'd think there would be more money in a rideable bike, either sell it in Cambodia or have a corrupt buddy reregister it in another province

    It could definitely still be on the road somewhere, but- being a very popular bike- it could easily be sold for parts as well- all they'd need to dump would be the frame.

    As I said, they found my Wave months later.
