Some insurance companies will cover this type of theft if you get some ID from the buyer. Below is an excerpt from the PDS from QBE.

------------

When You Are Not Insured For Theft Or Damage To Your Bike

5.1.3 when the theft is by a person to whom you have lent your bike, but this will not apply if the incident is theft by deception and you have kept the driving licence or other form of legal identification of that person;

For example, when you permit the use of your bike by a friend or a prospective buyer who ends up stealing your bike.

Bloody insurance companies are the biggest thieves there is.
Agree though that he did everything wrong. Especially with an expensive road bike, it's easy to attract thieves.

Have sold quite a few HDs and it was simple.

Bring $2K cash (Normally ended up as a deposit and no tweaker will have that)
Bring a car or bike that they own with proof of that
Bring a hostage
Meet at servo

Never lost a bike.

Pretty much what I do except I get them to meet at my mum and dads house which has a locked paddock backing onto a road. I take the bike there and have it already in there with the gate locked. Gate dosnt open till I've got the cash.

The bloke across the road from me sold his GSXR a few years ago and wouldn't even let people test ride it. He had it parked in his driveway blocked by his car. When they asked to ride it he said no they are all the same go ride someone else's to see how they go. I thought he would never sell it but he did in a week or so.

The fob is the key.

Good idea. Being asked to meet at a public place should ring alarm bells. That's what thieves selling stolen vehicles do.

Yes and No, dvorak.
Meeting in a public place means they don't know your address so they can't come and steal it later in the night.

And anyone buying a bike they wish to register should always spend the $4 on the PPSR check before purchasing.

So really both parties are coming out of this situation pretty fairly.
