    Vaguely remember Desmo and a few other crew on another insurance thread saying insurance parties won't pay out for owner negligence. Don't have a clue personally, only what I had read.
    I know of others who have claimed successfully after leaving the key in the ignition. It is against the law but I can not see anything about it in any of my policies.
    Insurance companies always have a negligence clause,but in reality all claims are the result of owner negligence to some extent,except where another person has hit you.
    It may also depend on the insurance company.

      The bike has been found, so good news for my friend.

      Its currently unrideable, busted ignition and locks, but otherwise in one piece.

      WAPOL were the ones to pick it up, and its in Morley cop shop waiting to be picked up.

        Good to hear, hope a new ignition barrel doesn't cost too much!

          2 grand in repairs. But at least he has his bike back.

            tell him to get the thing insured!
            As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

                I didn't *think* insurance would cover him, leaving the key in it.
                I *know* insurance won't cover him unlicensed.

                  I had my fully sick VT commodore stolen from my driveway a few years ago. I had not left the keys in the car but on the back table, literally 5 metres from the car. The thieves took the keys.

                  I was investigated but it was painless and i got paid out.

                    I'd say he would be covered for theft at least. If he was hit, or hit someone though it wouldn't be a pleasant experience for him.

                    And he didn't leave the keys in it. He thought he dropped them, and they were found and used. Given the busted locks/ignition, the thieves didn't get the keys.
