Damn, sucks to hear about these bikes going missing.
I've just changed my contents to reflect my bikes, got all 3 bikes insured under our contents policy as extra items (£3800 total), and the whole contents policy cost £10 a month.

Bad news JP. DId they get in the garage?
No - they were outside.
It appears that we may have been targetted because I have the roof bars and NO garage as its now been converted to another room.
Looks like they have noticed the roof bars and the shed and thought bikes must be in there.
I was out at the time, Mrs JP was in and the dog went wild but she couldnt see anything outside, probably a good job she didnt let him out as some bloody big bolt cutters were found in next doors garden and they may have hit him with them.
Insurance position looks to be a bit better as Mrs JP asked for them to get the taped call and she said to them she didnt know the value of the bike and Halifax said we will put £500, Mrs JP asked if they wanted anymore info at the time and they said no. Halifax insurance are paying out £900 and the branch were the insurance was taken out will pay the balance.
That sounds promising on the insurance JP. I have just taken my roof rack off I wonder if that is a sign for these w@nkers. Makes sense
I was lifted up and then bashed back down again today. A copper from a local force to ours called to say that two bikes had been recovered and they wanted to bring them to my place of work for me to identify them. Yes please, I said.
Ten minutes later he called back to say that wires had been crossed and that they fitted the description of two bikes stolen from another shed quite near to me but NOT mine. Oh dear, I said.
Maybe they are on the trail though. TBH the police and CSI have been great about it so far. All the neighbours have been questioned etc.
My insurers have set up a call for Thursday...
