    Bye bye ncx, gone in 60 seconds

    It's time.
    I went down South to Milan today.
    It was 300km from here.
    Then I stopped to fill up.
    I was inside the shop for less than 60 seconds and when I came out she was gone.
    Magic! ! Shit!!!

    Bye bye Honda. I am going to miss you. Will probably buy the new GS when I get the insurance money.

    Damm. Not happy today.
    What a day!

    i was in the florida(gulf side) for almost 3 weeks. the camera was mounted on the scooter. it would take probably 5 sec or more to take it off. scooter was staying for hours in various places\parking lots-no one would touch\steal anything. that's why i like US and that particular side of FL.

    Sorry to hear your bad luck! I had a 1971 Honda CB750 stolen and it is a heart breaker even today.

    I grew up on the west coast of Florida and I wouldn't trust leaving anything sitting on my bike. Florida is like any other place, and a lot more transient. Stuff goes missing all the time. We even have big flashing road signs to warn drivers to lock their doors. Burglaries in the area.

    HOLY CRAP!!! This is unbelievable. This is not setting very well with me. It’s really breaking my heart to hear this.

    Did you leave the key in it running? That is might has been perceived as an “Easy Target”.

    I hope this is not a “Cruel or Sick” April Fool’s Joke. Many of us would not appreciate that.

    He has HISS security chip key on his model, so unless he left the key in it, they wouldn't have been able to simply ride away that I'm aware of, so that means a drive by with a van/box truck/pick up truck etc., and a few people to do the loading.

    I would imagine this could be done in under 60 seconds with pros doing it, but I can't see that kind of occurrence and amount of effort going unnoticed at a petrol station? There should be at least a few witnesses or security camera footage or something.

    I'm wanting to go with April Fool's joke (booo!) rather than the alternative

    Is this available here in the States? My key looks pretty much "normal" for a late model Honda motorcycle to say the least...

    Thank you guys for your condolences and such quick replies. I know you love me.
    Yeah I left the key in the ignition.

    Taking a train back wearing ATGATT is NOT funny.
    Here are some photos which were still in my handphone.


    boo...*smile please*

    Lesson: Park where you can see your bike and always remove key when going away even for 30 seconds. Still love me?
