If that ever happened to me Id probably do more than cry.
I'd get medevil on someone.
Hard to believe somone could steal a WR400 without being noticed by someone isnt it?
Thats why even though I live in a relativly safe suburban neighborhood I keep my bike locked up at all times and keep the garage door closed as much as possible to keep away from prying eyes.
More than likley it was someone that lives in your neighboorhood.

He got the police involved, and the kid denied everything. Weeks later, the bike showed up for sale in a newspaper REAL CHEAP. Unfortunately, the guy that spotted the ad NEVER told my friend about it.
So long bike...!!!!
Scan the ads of all the newspapers within 50 miles.

That's very good advice.
If you live near a High School, I'd be very suspect. A few drive-bys at lunch through the school parking lot might yield results too.
Why was is not covered by your homeowners policy?
It was in the garage!
Best of luck in your search...

After that, I looked into insurance and homeowners will not cover motorized vehicles like atv's, motorcycles, go carts, etc. You can get a separate addition for theft and fire and it's cheap. I also still lock my bike to the trailer in my garage.
I hope you find your bike.

A standard Homeowners Policy will never cover a dirt bike, in the garage or on the trail. With some companies you can add, for an additional premium, liability coverage. Some companies will also add comp. & collision for an additional charge. If its licensed for the road you need to either add it to an auto policy or get a Motorcycle policy. Homeowners coverage will NEVER cover anything that is "licensed for road use". A good rule of thumb is if it has a motor, and you can ride on it it is not covered unless its used for "maintenance and use of the premises". A riding mower, garden tractor etc. are covered because they are used to maintain the property. Unless added by endorsement dirt bikes, 4 wheelers, and snowmobiles are not covered.
Also when trailering the bike your auto policy does not provide any coverage.
TT'ers call your Agent and ask questions, without paying extra you have Nooooo coverage.
I have been in the Insurance business for 23 years and am very confident that this info. is correct.
Hope this helps.

Since I mentioned the threatening of cancellation, word to the wise, I threaten to cancel my credit card of 10 years and the operator told me that she could give me a better rate right after she got done telling me there were no other rates were available. She then goes on to tell me that the cancellation department can always give a better rate. Go figure again but I just got my MasterCard down to 6.2% APR (1.9 + prime rate).
I am done ranting now.

" But if its not rideable its covered"
Have that put in writing and sent to you, your attorney will appreciate it. Your policy won't cover it but your agents "Errors & Omissions Policy" will. Your Homeowners policy will not cover it Dead or Alive unless you have paid extra for an endorsement.
