However from what I experienced w the katana... my view on tow companies in general isnt a positive one.
Tow truck operators are excellent and courteous drivers.

I would have to ask why yours would be towed and not hers... You know I wish the best for you but I would have to doubt it was towed. Anything on LJ? You know I would be the first to kill a mummafukker if I found them on yours or Callis bike... No doubt.

One of my guys got arrested in my truck and the only way I found it was because the I had GPS tracking on the cell phone that was on the dash. The longer the lot takes to report the tow the more $$$$$$ they bring in. They are all f....ing theives in my book.

Did meet one of the 1% tow drivers. Great Guy. Met several of the Roach 99% too.

Good Luck Bro.

They claim to have 90% recovery rates just on motorcycles... So keep them fingers crossed.

if you call and report a stolen bike or vehicle and if the tow companies towed it, shouldn't it be on file and the cops can easily locate it?

Depends. IF the towing company is ethical they will.
They may also just call the LEO in their area, so if it's say Jersey Village, HPD may not be aware that BillyBobs towing service has the bike.
I'd recommend picking up the phone and calling HPD, Harris County, Jersey Village, and whatever Constable has jurisdiction there.
