Reading these, I've been living in a dream world thinking motorcycle theft was a real rarity. Paranoid when I cross the sea but in Ireland I've not been worried....

Was on Foley Street a few years but behind a gate, characters from "a certain block" stole all the bicycles, 30 in one night! but never touched the motorcycles. Not that I ever leave it without good locks front and rear.

Up near the hospital now, again off the road but no problem (yet). A lad has chained his Monster nearby this past couple of years on Gardiner place, to the railings up on the pavement, couple of plain looking locks that wouldn't slow a serious t-leaf. It's still there every day, never even messed about that I can see.

Right sad to read the stuff here.

The trip was kind of coming to a cross roads. I had a ferry booked this morning to get to France, but I was a little on the fence about it.
Unfortunately the steering lock takes less than 5 seconds to break. . . anytime I'm off the bike even to buy a bottle of water the lock goes on. . . I learned the hard way.

I've been to loads of countries and 100% Ireland is the worst by far for petty theft (lids/gloves etc) and for stealing bikes.

Yeah I found that the hard way too. I live in a city in Canada with a notorious reputation and usually leave the key in. I kinda wish the people I was staying with gave a slight warning. Seems everyone in Dublin knows Mulhuddart is a bit rough

Canada?!! has it gone so downhill?

I like the key-less ignition and steering lock on the new KTM, it doesn't look like it could be broken easily at all.

FWIW I put a Xena XN15 on the front disc, they take ~10 minutes with an angle grinder, with a 16mm Oxford disc lock on the spokes of the back wheel which blocks it turning past the brake caliper and it would be right awkward to get 1m croppers in about it.
That and the GPS tracker.

Like, the city in Canada where my bike is, is known for a "high" crime rate, butvibstill leave the Kevin the ignition half the time and don't lock it. But. I should probably start. Pushing my luck.

I think if o put a disc lock on i woulda been okay. Hiding by the cctv they weren't very prepared but knew what they were doing

A cbr600 and gn 125 were stolen in lucan last week.
They seem to be on the hunt in this area recently.
Gn was recovered, two scrotes were caught pushing it on the long mile road 2 days later.
It was thrown into a van on the night in question.

It should of course be covered, but have a quick look at your policy document under what they define as theft, some circumstances are not covered like were you are deemed negligent by leaving the keys with it etc, but hijacking falls under theft or stealing so ya should be okay

Default SV 650 Stolen from Cork City

Posting on behalf of a friend, this was his first motorbike and was only purchased in the last few months

*STOLEN MOTORBIKE*

Unfortunately this morning my prize possession, my 1999 Suzuki SV650s was stolen from my home in the early hours of Sunday night/Monday morning 2-3/12/18. Gardai have been informed but Any help at all in finding it would be greatly appreciated. It's a gorgeous bike with a very distinctive exhaust sound (one of the loudest and best sounding bikes you'll ever hear).

Please share about if you can, any information please contact bishopstown garda station on 0214624500 or myself, or of you know any way you can help me personally please do not hesitate as any help in this difficult time would be greatly appreciated.
