! What a bummer. Hope the guy can recover the bike and sell it.

Best way to sell a bike is via consignment with Patrick. You pay a fee but it will save you so much hassle.

1 - The bike is available on display weekdays and Saturdays. (you don't need to spend your weekends waiting for a buyer to show up on-time)

2 - All the transaction and paperwork is handled at Motorcycles Unlimited.

I'd check your insurance to see if a vehicle stolen with the key is covered. State Farm didn't cover this in 98 and I don't think think insurance companies have loosened up their coverage lately.

House address and name will match the title or drivers license or no deal.

He has a point. But I took a picture of my car I was selling at my house. No address no nothing, but still showed up at my house says "I found your car on CL". I had 4 bikes in the garage and 2. B18b1's. Saw the guy driving slowly down the street couples later, then the next night was parked 2 houses down in his car. When I walk to his car, he took off.

Insurance is fine, but the ability to judge people needs some improvement.
Who takes cash in hand to buy a new bike or car? Same with used..take a hike..
Like my daddy says- "Do not judge me based on yourself"

A Bennelli 12GA w 000 buckshot deters most thieves.
In Texas I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six.
