They Stole My Precious 2009 Yamaha YZF R6

[ 1 ] November 15, 2009 |

I walked out to my parking stall yesterday morning and low and behold….someone stole my beautiful  2009 Yamaha YZF R6.  First thing I said was, "Bummer."  Then I did the whole looking around the parking lot bit as if just maybe it was moved somewhere else.  Hahaha, you know what I'm talking about.

I love this island but bikes tend to "disappear" quite a bit here on Oahu.  In fact, Oahu has ranked as the top area for stolen motorcycle claims in the country for the last 3 years.  Super duper, that's an awesome record to hold!

Anyhow, luckily for me I took out quite a bit of gap insurance from Safe-Guard Products International and Total Loss Protection when I bought the bike from South Seas.  I must have haggled with the sales rep for 45 minutes on why it was in my best interest to invest in all the additional gap insurance.  Thankfully the sales rep was convincing and I paid…and now here it is a year later and I'm counting my blessings. 

With the amount I'll receive back from the gap insurance and GEICO I'll have roughly $16k to purchase a new bike.  So, today I ordered a Matte Black 2010 Ducati 848 from South Seas.

The Ducati 848 is beautiful and delivers 134 bhp, which is roughly 34 bhp more than my previous Yamaha YZF R6.  I cannot wait to get my hands on this bike but unfortunately it will not be released until February-March of 2010.  So until then I'll have to suffer from severe withdrawal.  And for this bike I'm investing in LoJack for Motorcycles and a Scorpio Alarm System
