derrwong, I am SO sorry to hear this... What a beautiful machine!! Was it taken from a multi-story car park at an HDB or was it parked outside somewhere? Aren't there cameras at HDB car parks? I am not sure if you read this in the paper a few days ago, but the police apparently broke-up (and arrested) a motorcycle theft ring here in Singapore. Maybe they had something to do with this -- either way, it might be worth asking the police about it... Do you have Comprehensive Cover (including Theft Insurance) on the bike? Man, I hope so... I ride every day and promise to keep my eyes open for you. Good luck!!

Re: My 2002 Blue R1 Stolen

derrwong said:
Stolen at Blk 180A Pasir Ris Street 11 Carpark at 2am.

Can everyone here help me to keep a look out.

Contact me anytime at 97891470.


This the only 2002 Blue R1 with Gold Folk all stock from factory in Singapore.

Pls help me.

Many thanks.
Sorry to hear that you lost your bike. there has been another blue 01 r1 stolen in bedok or pasir ris a few weeks back. P.S. it will be easier for us to spot your stolen bike if we know your plate number. :dunno I can't really tell the difference by looking at the side of your bike.

r1diculous, I guess you're right -- although I thought there were 3 tiers to motorcycle insurance here in Singapore:
1. Third-Party
2. Third-Party, Fire & Theft
3. Comprehensive

So -- if this is correct -- its possible derrwong only had Third-Party (without the Fire & Theft component)...

scott, i heard we can get direct TPFT policy for a brand new 04 R1 at roughly $1200 to $1300. But comprehensive (more than $2k) is always better if I have the dough :lol

Will help to look out for it.

How on earth did they managed to steal the bike? Do you have extra disk brake lock?

Cheers.

Far out... And nobody saw anything? I don't live in an HDB (so I am not sure about the security) but isn't there any type of guards or -- at the very least -- security cameras?

HDB "guards" are the neighbourhood policemen patrol in their cars, and they are not doing a great job in maintaining security and safety in the HDB heartland, IMHO. They are something like the police in the US, munching on doughnuts and drinking coffee and doing nothing else. Except in s'pore, I spot our local policemen buying prata and kopi-o and remain oblivious to our precious bikes being stolen. :lol

not to be a wet blanket, but i'm not too optimistic about you recovering the bike, as the sporean thieves are smarter than you thought. they can illegally change the number plate, spray another color, and it turn out a different bike. so the idea of catching it on the road is highly unlikely.

have you got your bile already? wanna join in for a mersing trip one of these days? it was a great experience the last time i went with FB666Y... you can't find that terrain in Spore!

Shawn, yes I do have my bike now... It's a dream!! I would love to join you guys for a Mersing run one day soon. My travel schedule is pretty fierce, but please do let me know the next time you plan one and I'll do my best to join you guys...

Re: derrwong's bike, you're probably right -- I was just hoping that (against all the odds) he might have recovered it.
