Makes me wonder, how long until a skelm joins the forum, and uses the forum trust to steal someones bike or cash in a similar way.

Ek klink seker baie optimisties en positief , maar sy k@k sal draai , baie vinniger as wat hy dink .  Net soos hierdie perd op die foto . Kom ons kyk hoe lank vat dit voor iemand hom uitlig .  :deal:

Any other info, how did he do it? Your mate let him test ride it?


Yep - that's exactly what happened.  :-\  the dude left his bag and personal stuff - but it seems my mate did not check ID or verify that the bloke was genuine.......

Seems that the card that Pete found in the bag left - contained a business card and he called that dude - who was also selling a GS. However he was more wake-up and only allowed the oke to ride the bike in a secured & enclosed parking garage...

Problem here is that Insurance will not pay as he "handed the keys" to this thief.

A BIG LESSON to be learnt from this - ensure that ANY test-rides are done in an enclosed area/parking etc where access or exit is restricted. The people are becoming more & more unscrupulous.


Food for thought - the thief made a huge song & dance about his scars that he apparently got as a game ranger. This leads me to believe that they might be fake and he's using it to "dust his trail" ...........

Insurance must pay... Policy operative clause says loss or dammage. You have been victim to a criminal, report it and submit the claim form. Hope you have a broker on your team! Good luck

Good luck

I hope that you find it maybe think of getting a good PI involved if insurance won't lodge a claim.

He must be known somewhere................

Raging bollocks :o

It's not completely foolproof, but .... get ID, Driver's licence and Cell (tested) - and hold onto them while he rides

Where did you get the picture?
How did he arrive for the test ride?
Any email or cell numbers?

Stories like this keeps me awake at night.

This guy looks very familiar.

I could be wrong, but I think his face was on a similar cctv shot of a theft of bikes a year or so ago.......
