stolen

You’ve been chopped. Or should I say your bike’s been “chopped,” and I don’t mean in the kitchen. The black market chain supply is known to chop up stolen motorcycles and sell their parts. The parts, they can be found all over. That is the last place you’d ever want your bike to end up. Because chances are, you’ll never see it again.

Consider yourself lucky if your stolen bike is being resold with slight modifications or if it’s been temporarily stored away. At least you still have a chance of recovering it. A lot more than if its turned over to the black market.

Unfortunately, motorcycles get stolen quite often. Be aware, theft is at its highest in the Summer months. Close to 50,000 motorcycles have been reported stolen in the last year. Did you know thieves are most drawn to the brand, year and customization of the motorcycle?

If you own a motorcycle there’s more chance of it being stolen than your car. Thieves prefer them because they’re fast, thrilling and can be easily sold as a whole bike or in parts for profit. Find out if your motorcycle is one of the most sought after bike by thieves.
