Sry to hear the unfortunate; had my busa taken a few years ago.

It is a real poor statement for humanity when someone disrespects someone else that has worked hard, devoted time in modifying and riding the bike... to take it carelessly and without thought of the other.

Some recommendations I have now: keep in contact with your contact and the stolen services. If you can find the impoundment lots, ask them in person. There are many bikes that are infact recovered but no effort is put forth to returning to owner; if you need proof check out auctions with all the police equity bikes.

Keep an eye on craigslist for parts etc. There are usually two ways the bike is handled: a frame is purchased out of city/state and all the parts are swapped onto it and junked, or the tires are removed, the clip on controls and its sent overseas not as a bike(not registered in the port/customs) but as 'parts.'

I learned alot through many, many hours of research/very helpful members and people providing me with information/etc and a private investigator on here that offered up help in his spare time.

I fully believe in the Police etc but I will honestly tell you no 'bust' will happen unless, as Im told, you use the words when you call in(if you see your bike) as 'theft in progress.' Just info I was told by others; unfortunately I was not ever that fortunate to utilise it.

Stats on lojack on next to perfect; granted the info is from lojack themselves. But the security of 5 contacts/alerts chosen at your desire when the bike is moved without the transponder near by is a great peace of mind. So does full coverage insurance. But those are 'after the fact' assurances.

Best wishes on the heaviness in your heart; I feel your pain and know it well as others do on here. May be wise to repost the thread or start a new one for security/recommendations to prevent theft since that season is upon us once more.

Forgive me additional comment:

Forums can be a double-edged sword; you dont know the people you're meeting/reading about/riding with you well. But especially the 'reading' part. Alot of info can be learned about people on here including the following on stolen bikes.(bang head)

If a thief is less likely to think the bike is being looked for; may be more entitled to ride it around. However, the more eyes aware all around town the more likely it would be found if still together.
