Thumbs down Bike just got stolen

Hey guys, I have been riding for about 8 years off and on. And yesterday (the day after my birthday) my 2003 Yamaha R6 was stolen from my home! I live in Tomball (north Houston) and I just wanted to spread the word.
VIN # is JYARJ06E43A003694
I already filled the police report, Any other ideas on what to do?

It's a grey R6, it has a shortly (non street legal) pipe, after market grips, frame sliders, wind shield, tank protector.
One thing that stands out the most is, the plastic over plate for the tachometer is cracked down the center. It was like that when I bought it.

There was no garage at my place.
But I always leave the bike in the lock position so they must of picked up the bike to move it.

It's easier to steal when locked!!! When locked 2 ppl can pick it up easily! When unlocked at least the front tire wheel be wiggling trying to turn when you out weight on it. Makes it a little harder I think!

If the steering wheel is locked it's easier to pick up... If it's free it will turn left or right when you try to pick it up an out it in a truck.

Ooh when "lifting" it onto the truck. I was about to say you're on shrooms cos it's way easier to roll it away like a bicycle.

Post pics if you have any so the thousands of people on this forum people can be on the lookout and follow similar bikes if seen. The earlier the better!!! I've see 4 bikes today but none were gray.

, did you have theft coverage on it? Just wondering what happens if ins. pays out on it and then it's recovered.

In that case the insurance company would be the owner of the bike and it would most likely be sold at auction.
