        If you've got finance they've got gap insurance cover, good idea I think.

        Would'nt hurt.

          That doesn't mention the extra cost when re-insuring a replacement cause you've made a claim and lost you NCB... Assuming you can still get insured...
          Aim high and consider yourself worthy of great things

              was interesting to see western QBE have a no claim protection you can add on their policy... $27 a year, allowed to make 1 at fault claim per year.
              Nothing really, when you consider what the increased premium would be

                Not to mention the VERY important statistic:

                100% of all surveyed victims of bike theft want to beat the living shit out of the criminals responsible.
                If you can... you MUST!

                  when i first looked at the thread title i thought "wouldn't it be a good idea, if everyone who had thier bike stolen put it into some kind of thread, and we could map out the locations that bikes are getting stolen from?
                  and the dates/times they were stolen....

                  might help people avoid those kinds of areas at those times, or perhaps we might notice a pattern....
                  even if it's not your bike, but someone you know....
                  No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation to detail.
