Ah great thankyou I'll do that.

I only have the V5C/2 as ive only had it a couple of weeks which doesn't seem to have an engine number .

I might ask the garage that I bought it from though to see if they have it.

Hi all,

A few weeks on, still no sign of the bike sadly..

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who shared it, it was all over social media and comes up on multiple sites now if you search the reg on google. Hopefully, the b*stards who stole it will now have a hard time getting rid of it!

Managed to get all I paid for the bike back from the insurance which is great, meaning I didn't lose as much as I thought I would. However, thanks to this claim, my insurance quotes for the same bike have gone from about £600 per year to £1300+ a year!!! Unless I can find a cheaper quote, it's unlikely i'll be able to replace it sadly...

Does anyone have any tips or companies that offer decent insurance costs?
