Friday I picked up a 2000 drz400 dual sport. I spent the weekend scrubbing and cleaning every square inch of it. Serviced it and scrubbed everything. I got up early this morning and pushed it out of the garage and was tinkering. I went inside to make the kids breakfast. Gone maybe 20 minutes. Came out my new bike is gone. I thought my dad was teasing me. He told me he wanted it and was gonna steal it. I figured he was goofing and came up and drove it down the road.
I called mom and said hey where is dad at with my bike laughing. She said he is in bed. Mom won't carry on a joke so I knew she was serious.
Good thing I added it to my quad policy on the insurance yesterday morning. Made a police report and called the insurance company. Explained to them it was stolen and gave them the incident number the cops gave me. If it's not found I'll have a check for it. Zero deductible on comp and collision on my policy.
Something is seriously wrong with people. I spent hours on cleaning it. 4 hours of driving to get it. Gas money. Plus the work to save the cash to buy it.
Thank god I listened to my wife for once. I wasn't going to insure it till I put plates on it in the spring.
If you guys don't have your off road toys insured its a good idea. I have 2 quads and that bike insured and only cost me 35 a month.
