Sorry to hear about your bad luck, dirty fuckers.

Well maybe they actually did you a favour, I mean it's still a claim but for theft not accident so you can truthfully say when ringing around not "at fault" accident claims ;)

Still a fucked thing to do, but then there are a lot of lower socio-economic and non reflective types around that area that like stealing shit :rolleyes:

Heal up quick mate :(

Yeah, fully insured, all extras listed, and new for old. BUT, it's two claims, and two excesses.

1. For bike crash, as I rang that in first. As they assume us damaged bike.

2. For theft a second claim, as they have to recover it. Then restore any theft damage (ignition etc) and missing parts.

So up for $1700 in excess as a total for both claims, but my gear is covered, so that alone is $1350 so can't complain really.

Yeah but you can't claim for repairs on a bike IF it isn't found so you would only be claiming the theft ;) That is also assuming somehow you were able to actually "lodge" a crash claim on the side of the road :rolleyes:
So if it isn't found you would be better off ;)

Unfortunately, as I lodged the first claim it's going to stand. :(

I would have called a tow truck at least or one of my friends,
not left it there...duh

Still can't see how they are going to assess the bike for repairs to it if it's not recovered :confused: Just because you start a claim doesn't mean you need to continue with it :huh:

Kind of difficult if you're on a stretcher being pumped full of morphine.

Did you even read the thread? The guy was in a serious accident and was correctly looking after himself first. Bikes can be replaced.

He's got the right attitude anyway, $1700 excess sucks, the bike being stolen sucks, but most of his stuff will be replaced, getting himself fixed up is priority, he'd lose more money on a trade in, it could be worse.

Western qbe I think most underwriters would handle this the same

Very easy to criticise from an armchair in hindsight isn't it though Paulie? Very different at the roadside when you are alone suffering from shock and in pain.

Even the insurer said leaving it locked at roadside for only 12 hours was reasonable in the situation I was in

Actually, I did call a few people I could think of at the time, so there were others I could have called, but I wasn't thinking the clearest

Lucky you were even able to contact the insurer? That's the only drawback with Swann, they operate 9-6 EST and with DLS at the moment they are 3 hours ahead so when I had my accident at ~6pm they were already closed so had to chase up towing myself :( Well the missus did as I had no phone reception in Gidge :(

Main one dude is that your ok.

Fingers crossed the thieves (who may have thrown the rock in the first place) get mangled up ring lock

Yes Martin terribly difficult & I feel for you the fact the bike has been removed by some piece of shit who took it upon themselves to steal it. Hope the insurance gets sorted out. I've found QBE excellent for both my bike and cars

Yeah, qbe have always been good to me, so someone would have to offer a lot less to get me to change
