    Evening .
    Sorry to launch straight into this group with a bitch and moan but I am
    un-bearably angry and need to vent to someone who'd understand . Some prick
    tried to steal my TRX 850 while I was at work today . They destroyed the key
    mechanism but either a) couldn't work out the trick to the dicky steering
    head or b) noticed the disk lock . They then (or perhaps before then)
    smashed a bottle of some kinda mixed drink on the bike . But there was some
    small measure of justice as the future murder victim seems to have badly cut
    himself while doing it and bled all over my bike . It's all over the brake
    levers , welled up in pools around the destroyed key mechanism and smeared
    all over the tank . I am now wondering whether I should claim it on
    insurance (the only thing damaged at all is the key mechanism) or just cop
    it sweet and buy a new key machanism (how much $$$ do these things generally
    cost ?) . I wonder what would be cheapest ( in the long run , after losing
    the no-claim bonus and paying excess) ?

    Lee .

    p.s. If the dreg of humanity who trashed my baby is reading this , I hope
    you caught fatal tetnis from your injuries .

    Did you call the police?
    I'd suggest doing that, then after they've had a good look (or remanded it
    as evidance and you've re claimed it.. if thigns work that way) to wash it
    with detol..

    but if you want it written off, tell the insewerance company that every part that has blood on it needs replacing due to aids risk

    find some out there, shippingis cheap too!

    I am now wondering whether I should claim it on
    Get a replacement lock from the wreckers, it should be no more than a
    couple of hundred - you should find that the FZR1000 and probably the
    FZR600 ones are interchangeable (damn near everything else of them is :)

    The lie:
    "We won't just automatically click our heels and follow the Americans."

    The facts:
    But one year earlier John Howard offered George Bush a blank cheque just
    two days after September 11, 2001 when he said: "I've indicated
    Australia will provide all support that might be requested of us by the
    United States in relation to any action that might be taken."

    I thought the story was going to be.
    They tried to steal your bike but you got to bash them a bit. ;-)

    I suspect it'll be much cheaper to just buy a lock from a wrecker. I
    also reckon it'd be worth the money to get a matching (ie. using the
    same key) lock for the fuel tank/seat/helmet lock while you're at it,
    or find out how much a locksmith wants to re-key the ignition one.
    Having multiple keys for the one bike is a pain in the proverbial.
