AAARRRRRR stolen bike....but i got it back

My 07 9er was stolen.... buy my daughters drunk boyfriend.... Had my 9er stored in there garage as i was not using it at the time as i'd brought a new klr650 and was doing some adventure riding. Anyhoo i decided to pop around to their house and give the hornet a clean and polish, but got side tracked helping in the garden and it never got done ....so i left the bike outside in the back yard with the key still in it thinking it would be fine till the following morning when i'd get to the business of cleaning etc. At 11.30 that night i get a ph call from the police ( a persona friend of mine in fact) telling me my bike will never ride again, and then going into the details. Steve the daughter B/F had decided that he was going to take the bike for a ride , he never got more than 5 miles from the house and came off on a 40mph corner at 120mph , needless to say the bike is a complete wreak and he's not far behind .... both legs broken collar bone and scapula many broken rids punctured lung and he has lost his right hand as well as road rash everywhere.... he's very lucky to be alive. As for the bike its bent and smashed to the point of no return ... the engine still runs perfect and has very few marks on it at all but the rest of the bike is unrecognizable and is smashed in every way with the only salvagable parts being the brake rotors and calipers. And to top it off i had cancelled the insurance as it was not being used and in storage so it a write off in every way. Ive since brought a new 9er .....same year except its black and had a little less milage on it ...only 11500km compared to 13500 on the busted bike . i now have a spare motor at least but prob wont need it lol .
Im now waiting for the young fella to fully recover so i can kill him....... guess that age old saying is true........... SHIT HAPPENS

Once healed he needs to have a few more bones broken as a reminder.

Does he have a job? Let him pay you for the bike... Let him keep the motor once he's paid you back.



In 1915 T. Roosevelt said, in a speech to the KofC, "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. "

Or drop the motor on his foot 'oops, sorry!'

Bummer - I'm assuming insurance won't cover it? Did this incident, or you, convince your daughter to find a new boyfriend? Guy sounds like a real dick.

I would think that your house insurance would cover the loss.

Damn that sucks. But as bad of a condition the guy may be right now, it's his responsibility to pay for the bike. Soon as he's out of the hospital, lay down the bill.

he was indeed right handed but not anymore , i have some pics of the bike somewhere i'll post a couple..... not a pretty sight lol. he has agreed to pay the market value for the bike onces he's back at work so thats all good . And believe it or not he is a really nice young bloke that just had a major brain fart that will affect him the rest of his life. The thing that really pisses me off about the whole thing is that only 3 months before the accident i brought him a bike to learn to ride on..... just a suzuki 400 but still ok for his level of skill ..... which is not as good as he thought it was. It should have been the bike i brought him that got smashed up ...not mine. Ok ill go find a couple of pics

Sorry to hear about the bike and young fella loosing his hand. As you say, he had a lapse in judgement and did something stupid (who of us hasn't) and will be paying for it the rest of his life. No chance of re-attaching his hand? What a shame. I guess he is lucky to be alive.

I couldn't see anything on the web about the crash, when did it happen?

Hornets are pretty affordable now. You should be able to pick up another at a reasonable cost.
Build a cart with the motor:

Just don't park it at your daugher's house.

Well, he's pretty much assured himself (and others) that he won't be riding bikes in the future. Pretty hard to do without a throttle hand.

It sux. Stupid mistake. Hopefully it makes a man out of him.

Sorry to hear about the bike. Glad you were able to get another!

I just saw this. That has been a picture I've had in my mind for so long now. That thing is awesome. I don't think I could afford rear tires though.

Do you face any liability? He hurt himself on your bike after you left the keys. Wierder things have happened. People break into houses & hurt themselves & sue the owner of the house. People drown in other people's pools protected by fences & the home owners are still responsible despite not wanting them there, inviting them, & putting up a fence. Its the world in which we live. Sorry about your bike.
