Stolen DR650 - Brisbane - Rego 149 IR

Some theiving c*#t has stolen my DR650 from the CBD. Second bike I have had stolen from town. Its the same one I crashed after the snail trail ride last year.

2012 Model Grey DR650. It had a 20L grey acerbis tank plus protaper bars. Rego 149-IR. I parked it up at 7.00am today, wasn't there when I left at 3pm. Taken from Queens Wharf Road, under the old state library building.

FWIW, I had a Xena alarmed disc lock on the front rotor. Obvioulsy they are not worth a pinch of shit.

I have thought putting a disc lock on the front was a bit counter productive thinking that it only needed two people to lift it up by the handlebars and walk away,maybe better to put it on the rear,anyway sorry about your loss hope it comes back in one piece,cheers Nev

Horrible feeling seeing your bike gone, sorry to hear! I use a Xena alarmed disc lock as well, but I think these days people don't take notice of alarms anymore because of so many false alarms?! I hope you were insured, maybe start looking for a replacement. Swann offered me a pay out after only 6 days!

Thieving scum.

I hope you get it back soon, undamaged, and the cops get the bastards.

Sorry to hear, Andy.

Disc lock is all but useless when you see how quickly it takes for the scum to take what doesn't belong to them.

Must be some video of that part of the city. Real close to the casino and hotel. Council has cameras everywhere.

Last bike stolen was seen riding away. There is one camera on the back of the Neville Bonner building and thats it. I work for the casino, nothing pointing that way.

A**eholes!

Had my XR600 stolen from my work's "secure car park" a couple of years ago. Video was good for watching him ride away on it and all the other employees walking past him as he was trying to kick it into life to ride off with it!!

I know that weird feeling that you get when you realise it is gone. Good luck with it all.
