Rest In Pieces - WEV2462 (pun intended)
Sad news. I know this is a car crimes section, and perhaps slightly off topic.
My bike was stolen, at the same Salak South LRT station where I lost my car's side skirts, yesterday, between 11 am - 1.45 pm, although parked at a bike parking area, a very visible area, near the LRT counter.
I'd normally walk to LRT eversince the last theft, but was too lazy to walk yesterday, so I rode off my bike. I've parked my bike numerous times before anyway.

Description

Make: Honda
Model: EX5
Year manufactured: 1996
Plate No: WEV 2462
Colour: Green
Significant signs
Givi Box, Black 5 spoke alloy rims, AAM sticker under the plate no, nothing else.

Police report has been made at 4 pm, after failure to locate the bike 2 hrs after it went missing. Will make an insurance claim since it's under comprehensive insurance scheme.

My bike of 6 years, I wouldn't be where I am now, without the bike.
I know it's a cheap bike, but it's not the value, it's the priceless memories, how it served me well for the past years.

Albeit old, but reliable workhorse.

Thank you for the good 6 years.

The bike is still missing. Just waiting for the insurance claim now.
That's what I heard too. The old ones are much better than the "dream" version.

Truly is, never once it broke down on me - engine wise. Just fill up the petrol and go. And yeah, the 3k km service interval, brake pad change and occasional punctures. That's it and that's that.
