Get over it.... it's just a machine.
I've had a couple of motorcycles stolen, both in England. I had both insured for fire, theft and third party damage.
The first was a Yamaha RSX 100 that cost me £700. It was stolen from the middle of town, where it was chained to a steel fence, mid afternoon. The police found it, but said it was not worth recovering. I had it for only a few months. The insurance company offered me £400, but I said I wanted £500, which they paid out without quibbling.
I used that to buy a 10 year old Honda CB250RS, which I had for about four or five years (and used to travel around the British Isles and Central Europe). Then it was stolen when I stopped at a news agent for 3 or 4 minutes in Cambridgeshire. It was never recovered, and the insurance company paid out £300.
I did only one more season in England, and did not replace it. The mother of my boss had a 20 year old Jaguar XJ6L that she seldom used, so it was mine to get around in for the the rest of my time there. Actually, as I do now, most of the time I used a bicycle for my local trips.
there are old motorcyclists and bold motorcyclists,
but you seldom meet an old bold motorcyclist
