...stole my 2010 (new model) Triple from City of London this thursday.
It is a '10 registration, white, with full bodywork accessories, Bagster tank cover, flyscreen, and an Arrow Low Boy fitted.
if anyone notices any suspicious movement involving one of these, especially in the South East of UK, i would be grateful.
I can also perfectly describe the little marks and scratches in various locations on the bike to prove it is mine.

i'm gonna miss it intensely!

I don't have the words for how bad that sounds. I wish I was there and could go with you to get it back, the hard way (for them).

My bike is like my girl. Of course if I could get it back I would want it I just don't know if I could ever feel the same way riding it again.

That was my thought, too. It was white. I think they abandoned the bikes so the OP can probably go get it back after it's processed for evidence, or whatever.

What security did you have on it mate? I park central too, I think I'm fairly well protected but it would be nice to have a comparison...

if you are familair with London it was a bike parking area in Sycamore St. Which is on the corner of Old Street and Goswell Street.
It had a disc lock on it and of course the steering lock and immobiliser, but i'm told the modus operandi is to pull a transit van up to the bike, poke a scaffold tube through the front wheel and lift the wheel off the ground.
Two men then just drag the bike up a ramp into the van, and they're off! Takes about 20 seconds, top.
it was only after the event that i noticed the area has no CCTV on the bays, and there are pull up chain bolts in the ground. Although these were pretty much covered in leaves and crud.
