Stolen bike tracker

No insurance? 

Nope, as a youngster, the insurance premium was more than he could afford. There is a possibility that it was divine intervention.

He did get the bike back, in pieces. The police picked up as many scattered parts as they could, put them on a trailer and he picked them up.

Very unlikely that whoever crashed it lived. I think there was one side fairing still in one piece. Everything else was broken.

I remember him telling me that he learned that 185 you need to pay attention to both lanes of traffic.

Karma. 
 

Sorry to hear about the bike and even more sorry about having to pay out for something you don’t have. 
 

Shit situation.

I’ve looked at this one from Amazon.  A lot cheaper and well rated.  Only reason I’ve not done it is because I don’t live or travel to sketchy places.  Maybe for a long trip I would have it.

Captain obvious here: if someone wants the bike they will have it, not matter what anti-theft or tracker you use. 

If it's a joy rider, he'd probably have crashed it before the ink on the police report was dry, if it was a theft ring, they probably have the tracker removed and stuck to a bus somewhere. 

I understand vaguely remember being young, I'm surprised age would have much to do with theft insurance, but then again I can't think like an insurance actuary. 

10k is a hard lesson to learn, but as you said, divine intervention: better to get a stolen bike back in pieces than a child in hospital. 

If the engine is still good, I'm sure it could be used in a project, like a drag luge!

Thank goodness thieves only steal stuff from sketchy places.

That is, if I get to heaven
