MotoPhoto Crap, sorry to read about this Daddyjoe. I know the sickening feeling down in the pit of your stomach. I hope you are able to pick up another one and get her fixed up the way you want it.

I had my BMW R100s stolen in '78. It was quite a shock to go out in the morning and find the bike missing...I drank almost a whole bottle of Jack D by myself to divert the pain...I was 1 day away from getting a check for a new bike when a friend saw the bike with a bunch of punks standing around it. He charged the group with his van, scattered 'em and then managed to get the bike into the side door of his van and called the police, they then wanted to arrest him (he was a "colorful" character) for having a stolen bike. I had to go to the scene and verify he was ok and it was my bike...still have the bike and ride on sunny sundays when not on the KLR (when wife wants to ride)

DXKLR I also use dairyland, but thank goodness have not had to see how well their coverage actually is...

Daddyjoe Progressive,
they also cover the gear, and if mine had been taken with the bike they would have paid me for them.
A few years ago my brother wrecked a bike of mine and progressive paid off really quick. The main problem with them is their limits, you have to check to ensure the limits are adequate because when you call for a quote they will often give you a price for the state minimum limits which are not enough in most accidents.

Would you mind sharing who your insurance company is?
I have heard some good things about dairyland and so I switched from
Allstate after 32 years and now have 2 bikes insured for less than allstate charged for 1....dairyland covers accessories and even riding gear and helmets in accident situations. I'm not sure how they would be in theft cases...

ScareCrow Damned easy to hot wire and steal a KLR, especially the '08s and probably the '09s also. It's only slightly less easy on the older models. Here's a post at KLRWORLD about how easy it is.

Buildit Crime is getting out of control. In the past week there have been so many shootings, bank robberies, and other forms of theft around Columbus I'm starting to think about a concealed carry permit. At 6'4" and two black belts I never thought I'd feel the necessity to carry a firearm for safety in town. But the economy is really making crime an inviting solution to those with low morals.

Sorry about the bike Joe, but it can be replaced, you two can't!

TheWanderer Just a note, not sure if it will help unless you alerted the insurance company about all the extras.

My dad had 3 custom built computers get blown when a powerline went down. When the adjuster came out he told my dad to add labor in to the price of each computer since he'll be the one rebuilding them. $400 each for two of them and $600 for the other one.

So... when you figure in all those accessories and mods that you had on the bike, be sure to add labor costs for redoing them all.

Daddyjoe Yes it is a bummer, but "maybe" the insurance company will write me a big check to ease the pain.

Thanks for posting the pic Mark, hope you all are doing well out there on the left coast.
