Hey hit em where it hurts!! I'm sure crack and their Cadillac on 22" rims is all they adore in life much like our 2 wheel passion. Taking that away from them would give those a taste of what it feels to be violated

Huge thank you for all the congratulations. I don't think it's even sunk in yet that I have her back. I do feel and know that I am incredibly, no, insanely lucky. She's been sitting secure in a friend's garage for now until I get done with my last exam and I can work on her. Some of the parts are already in transit but I'm not a baller by any means so it'll take a while.

Yanni, really sorry to hear about your loss. Like many of my other friends and fellow forum members, my passion for justice isn't stopping at just getting my bike back. I asked the officer to contact me once went down and I'd come back to verify/testify/crucify whoever the they found. He asked me to call back Friday and I just got off the phone with the Auto Theft Dept. He said today's a holiday so they are short handed and that I should call back on Monday. I will keep you guys posted on that. *My thoughts on why he wasn't charged immediately with anything was to lure out the real thief and perhaps unravel a better connection to get to the bottom of this motorcycle theft in Houston.*

As far as releasing their address, I don't see much good coming from that. That's funny you guys are mentioning Cadillac's on 22's because one of the guys there was scared and denying he knew anything about bikes when I asked him did he wire it...saying something like "You ask me about a slab I can help ya...I don't know anything about bikes." Sadly, the stereotype, however derogatory, isn't far off from the truth.

I could have unleashed on them when I saw them there but like I said it was 3-5 grown men, 3 black maybe 2 mexican, and 2 mexican women...I didn't know who lived where or if they were just being nosey neighbors or friends. Once I saw my bike it was like their heavy breathing and snarling comments didn't mean in the cold evening background. Only one of them said something to me and it wasn't clear over the bike idling but I replied and said something to the tune of: "Were you the one riding my bike? You know what, it doesn't even matter. I'm shocked my bike is still here. Let me tell you something. Five months ago someone took it, and I haven't been the same since. That person along with whoever else likes to steal deserves to burn. If you want to take the heat for that, be my guest." After that I just got on the bike, put on my gloves, and rode off.

My wish is for any and everyone that has had their bike stolen to have the same feeling I had that evening. Nothing on the bike worked except the headlights and the motor, but it was enough to get me home. I was so afraid I'd have trouble finding neutral or I'd get hit by some idiot. However, it was like an extension of me again, and the connection was reestablished: I knew the bike, and it remembered me too.

The med. center area is notorious for car and bike thefts. If someone had his vehicle stolen in that area recently, it won't hurt to drive around just in case....

It's useless information to me personally, after a year it's pointless to keep looking.

But I think it might help someone if you would at least point the street block, no need to provide street number/ apt number or other specifics. No pressure though if you got your reasons.

Congrats on getting the bike back in one piece. As long as it's been gone I would have assumed that it would have been parted out or swapped to a different frame by now. I've had a turbo integra stolen from me so i know the feeling of walking out to your hard work and having it not be there. Glad to see a happy ending to this one.

It felt so good reading this.

I hope they get the maximum. Unfortunately the punishment is just a slap on the wrist, but hopefully not this time. I wouldn't be surprised if their "hobby" is what funds their dumb donks. Car and bike thieves deserve to burn, here and in .


Congrats, Hung. It was all well written, too.
