STOLEN one 2011 Triumph Tiger 800 xc looks alot like the photos below due to it being the bike. Stolen from the Zillmere area. I was even nice enough to give them a full tank of fuel

It obviously looked too good to resist. Hope it turns up unharmed.

When you catch them.. drive a rusty iron stake through their heart... slowly.

How di they take it? get the keys or lift it into a truck?

Set up an automated search Australia wide on eBay and Gumtree for a number of your farkles, especially the bike specific ones which only fit that model. You probably won't see any of it again, but at least be proactive and make life a little difficult for them.

Please also share how, when and where it disappeared so we can all learn from your bad experience. There is a current thread on here about bike security and makes some interesting reading.

Don't tell us half a story mate, did the bike go while you were in the middle of a camping trip, parked outside a takeaway shop, at home while you were sleeping?????????
They rode it away, they pushed it away or they lifted up on to a truck. We don't know if it had brake disc locks on or it was chained to a tree.

It was in my Carport which you can not see from the road so they had to walk up the driveway to even see my bikes :-(

If I knew how they took it I would say but I was asleep at the time didn't have any other locking goodies on her. I have learnt though next bike will have a shotgun aimed at it...how ever thats another story

Grubs are known to follow their target bikes home, so they don't need see it from the road.
