Thursday, April 17


IN WHAT looks almost like a 'steal to order' racket, Jason Fowler had his GSX-R1000 K7 stolen right out from under his nose in Te Atatu South on Monday, April 14.

The Suzuki was blue and white, is fitted with a Leo Vince single pipe with a carbon tip, Oggy knobs and tail tidy.  

Registration number is:  60YYH

Frame number is: JS1CL111100100069

Jason says a fellow turned up in a car, seemed very conversant with Suzuki GSX-R1000s, checked the bike over and asked to take it for a test ride.

Jason suggested the owner leave his car keys with him (Jason) while the test ride was conducted.  The prospective purchaser is described as a "white guy, 26 to 30-years-old, about 1.75 metres (69 inches, or five feet nine inches) in height, chubby/fattish with either broken/cracked or very small front teeth."

So it definitely wasn't the Easter Bunny.

Jason says the 'buyer' said he'd go out to his car and get the keys, then bring them into Jason.

For whatever reason, Jason's attention was distracted and when the fellow did not come back with the car keys, Jason went out to the street to see where he was. The car the 'buyer' had arrived in was gone.  When Jason got back to his house, his blue and white Suzuki GSX-R1000 K7 was also no where to be seen.
