It's on their friendface page...

Regrettably Im tasked to inform customers of the first ever incident in the history of No Limits running European trips that's resulted in a number of bikes being stolen while in transit back from Estoril.
At the moment we can not release specific information as its under investigation by the police and our insurance investigators who are already following up a number of promising leads collected from CCTV of the whole incident.
Our usual working practice and method of secure transportation was followed but it's believed that it was premeditated by professionals and the means to carry out such a act.

We have already been in contact with them customers directly affected. We can only convey our sincere apologies for this tragedy and assure them affected that this matter will be dealt with in a amicable manner of which you expect from No Limits.

Our insurance are actively working on this and will work closely with customers to cover the losses.

We reassure customers that anyone travelling overseas with No Limits that this is a isolated incident with further measures now in place to made sure it won't be repeated. Bikes and equipment are fully insured and transported by a logistics expert with security the upmost importance.
We decided to go fully public with this despite putting us in a bad light so we can update customers as soon as we get specific information of the bikes stolen so allowing to post up the details and hopefully at least make them too hot to handle.
Needless to say, we're all absolutely devastated about this news and just about sums up the whole of 2020.

Blimey, that'll be a fucking nightmare to sort out. I assume you have to declare the bike details when you book, otherwise everyone will have had their BSB spec V4$ Ducatis stolen... :) :)

Can't recall in honesty, you certainly don't list mods/upgrades etc though, you may have to put "1098 Ducati" but that's about it.

I'm just praying next year the one going to Portimao with the ZX6R goes missing too !

Lol, I'm guessing Ceri wouldn't be so happy with that though (and it'd be pain for you- you'd have the hassle of trying to find another ZX6 that's as nice as that one :D )

But anyway, next year's Portimao lorry better bloody not go missing- I'll be gutted if they nick the new Tricky track weapon!

Does anyone from here know anything about "Maltagate" circa '96 ?

No.

When I've got a minute Ill post up the Story. But as a taster I'll just say it involved a few members of a Gang from Palermo , several crates of motorcycles , a British motorcycle racing club , a court order and the Boys from the Black stuff.

My bike is/was on a stillage with a bike with a tracker and that shows its in the pound. NL also said all affected clients have been contacted and we haven't been.

Surprised none of the affected have been on social media. Gutted for them. I'm looking for more details and answers.
