Confused, I thought Police just harassed sportbikers, not solve crimes...

The guy prolly made a mistake and rode it to Shipleys??

Im glad youre going to get your bike back!!!

Wow. NICE! You really don't hear that every day.

I am going to call back today to get some more detials from the police. Even if I don't get my bike back from the insurance company, because it was in"good shape".
It is still some Sweet Justice to know this is going to catch some jail time.
I had given up of the police catching this guy, or getting my bike back.

BTW does anyone have a dealer's license to buy bikes. I may need some assistance in getting my bike back if it hasn't been ran to and back.

unfortunately, he will probably only get a slap on the wrist for the bike theft. A couple of months in jail, a little bit of probation, maybe some in a cup...that's really no incentive to "go clean" and change.

I'm glad they caught the guy...I just hope that would mean they would also watch him and his ring of buddies from now on.

I'm guessing they already cut you a check for it then. Something to consider...the thief probably broke the steering lock, which would have damaged the frame. Most insurance companies will total the bike, because the cost of parts + labor to swap everything to a new frame just isn't cost-effective. Insurance companies usually sell totaled bikes for a fraction of their market value, so if you're willing to live with the damaged frame (and no steering lock), you can get your bike back and still have money in your pocket.

Yes, they have already paid me. If that turns out to be the case, I was think of using it as a track bike, I don't think it will affect stability and strength of the frame.
I know this will murder the resale value of the bike. So selling it, to anyone but a track addict, when it is time to part ways may be a pain.

Typically damages the lock cylinder, but no damage to the frame. From what I am reading, there is no reason this bike could not be returned to street service, but will likely have a salvage title due to the total loss associated with prior theft.

do you think a chain or an alarm would of helped deter the thief in the medical center? Since it'll take time to cut it and theyre exposed to ppl walking around them. The alarms are pretty sensitive to movement if they decide to just pick up the bike and not break the chain.
