Man armed with knife takes motorbike from victim

Can't help thinking I woulda done something if it was me.

"A MAN has been robbed of his motorcycle at knifepoint after advertising it online.
The victim was met at his Fewings Ave home at Brooklyn Park, about 8pm yesterday by a man who had seen the bike advertised on Gumtree.
The man wanted to take the bike for a test ride but when the victim refused the “buyer” threatened him with a knife.
He demanded the victim hand over the keys, then rode off.
The victim was not injured.
The offender was described as Caucasian, aged in his late 20s, about 180cm tall, with short shaved hair that was shorter on the sides.
The motorcycle is a white and orange 2013 KTM 690 Duke with a South Australian registration of S73-AOG.
Anyone with information about this incident should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at https://sa.crimestoppers.com.au"

Mmm, I'd rather make a bike insurance claim than a medical or life insurance claim.

You guys don't know how good you've got it. Here in 'Murrica an incident like that would have led to a shoot-out and 3 innocent bystanders getting plugged.

Robbing people with knives. How quaint!

I'd be interested to know if his insurer would pay out for a knife point robbery , they will not usually if you hand the keys over for a test ride .

Should've kicked him in the guts

I had a druggie who used to live nearby pull a tomahawk on me once - and raise it over my head while he was at my front door. I pushed him off the verandah and should have jumped on him... but didn't because it would've (possibly) hurt him

Cops did nothing... although 9 of them turned up, hands on guns. They were going to arrest me because shitface's wife said she saw a scuffle on my verandah. My neighbour (who has a police sergeant son) set them straight.

It was an absolute PITA. He'd shown up at my place because he'd seen my son installing a car stereo... and because he'd had one stolen, it was obviously his and he was going to kill my son...

Having turfed him we had to go the whole AVO route... and my hunting rifles got locked up for 3 months, and it cost me $1500 for solicitors and.... the whole rigmarole

If I'd jumped on him... it would have been a lot simpler

Once the bikejacker was astride the bike with hands on the bars he was at a disadvantage and a great time to pull him over with the bike on top of him and put the boot in. I would be pretty ashamed of myself if I just let someone steal it.

If you weren't there then you don't know the exact circumstances.

The thief was obviously brain damaged for stealing a 690 in the first place.

Who knows what he may have done., then, or later on, as he knows where you live.

Its just a bike, you can buy another one, but you can't buy a life or compensate for time in hospital, and there's some big fuggers out there
