Fact: steering lock is broken. Not sure what that means on a GSXF600 but I left the bike where they left it, minor scratches on exhaust, and put the cover over it.

I did go to work but they know the situation and that Im handling this first. Making a police report again now.

Glad your bike was found. Seems like the wrecker service would be liable for any damages that occurred. Do you at least have theft insurance? I had a bike stolen and only had liability. Paid 6k cash for it. Made me sick to my stomach. I can't imagine the feeling of having two stolen and so close together.

I finished speaking w an officer. They said it was reported as a recovery for repo. But was not reported that it was returned to me. So there is alot of interest in it.

I need to call them at 9am when the wrecker company opens. Anyone have experience w civil claims if it comes to that? I didn't move the bike and Im not sure what Im looking into now but doesnt sound like its gonna be fun.

glad to hear you got it back. My heart sank when i read such a nice person had a second bike stolen. Can't fault you on parking your bike at the place you live. mine would be parked outside my apartment if i lived in one also. Its a sorry time we live in that you have to worry about dirt bags with your family and possesion constantly

Hey Matt - just logged on now for first time in a week or so and... I can't believe it! I know you're not kidding, but YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING!

All this happening to such a nice guy...

Although I'm not an atty, I've got plenty of legal experience (non-criminal), and would be happy to advise you regarding the civil aspects of any forward action. If you have the title, which is clear you do, and you can subpoena the wrecker's tow log, showing the VIN, year, make and model of the vehicle they were supposed to tow, it'll be an open and shut case. The thing to do is to go to a authorized dealer and get them to produce a repair estimate for the damage (cost = $25-50). Show them the scratches on the exhaust (OEM exhaust = $$$ OUCH! ) as well as the frame damage. The bike might need a new frame, which means that it would be totalled. If you want it to be totalled, then there's $3500+ in your pocket. If you don't, then ask them for an estimate to re-weld or otherwise repair the steering lock. Of course, the entire front end would have to be disassembled (sigh), which means a couple of hours labor (as you very well know).

You get that information, plus the tow wrecker's log, and go to court. Or you do what I did in a similar circumstance. You go in with that repair estimate, and you have a polite chat with the owner of the company. You politely but firmly inform him of what happened, the repair costs as a result, and suggest that he do the smart thing and compensate you for the damage. You'll being careful to not point fingers, appear angry, or otherwise get him to act defensively. If he won't, politely inform him of the fact that you have an open and shut case, and that you will take him to court, and as clearly he will lose (cause this doesn't actually belong in court in the first place!), and it will be even MORE expensive for him. In addition, the police are investigating the actions of his company. If he continues to refuse, ask him what the media might think of this story...it's a great story, don't you agree, Mr. Tow truck company owner? A great story that would likely have a camera crew to come out for a chat....

What? You'll be happy to write me a check....now there's a good boy

PM if any specific questions.

how do i get the log from the truck driver? Their records dont show anything as of yet on the katana per the case worker(person I was forwarded too.)

She is going to contact the field office when she can and I must say she has been very understanding and helpful in this matter thusfar.

Would a repo-man be a little apprehensive if 50-60 motorcycle types surrounded him in full gear?

Damnnnnn. Cali, I am so sorry to hear about this. The towing company will have to take responsibility regardless of what vin etc. was on there log. The fact is they moved a bike that was titled to you without your permission, case closed.

If we are going to start a fund, I say we start a Cali LoJack fund. That way the next punk that trys to steal his stuff gets a nice surprise.
