I had my bike stolen and recovered. I didn't have to pay to the storage lot or impound. You might want to call them to find out.

Whoa... that's not what the cops said. Was yours at a police impound? Mine is at Sun's Towing, which is just a normal business.

I mean, I don't see why I should have to pay, it's not like I am at fault for it getting towed there...

Please tell me it will be free!

congrats bro
though lojack is a great thing for recovery it is very important to keep your bike as safe as possible... because lojack is not activated until 5 days after it is registered online. just a lil tidbit of information that everyone should know that has it installed.

on the upside congrats on getting your bike back man! that is a true blessing!

Man that would be awesome. Really appreciate it. I've got some crazy GPS in my phone that I hardly ever use, but it's really accurate, so I think I can find it.

Mine was at the City of Garland impound. If it is where the police have it tow to then it is the police impound lot. The police call for the tow truck then it is contracted with the city of ......(where ever you are at).

Document the repair and charges accrued to get the bike in shape and ask the court to make the thief pay restitution.


On a second thought.... My brother's bike got stolen and recovered at another location and he had to pay for the storage plus tow.

So, good luck, hope you didn't have to pay for the storage/tow.

You know I've been so f-ing happy I got my bike back, this didn't even occur to me yet!

Does anyone have any experience with this type of situation? Should I expect to get anything back from this guy towards the expenses incurred? Or is this just a hopeless pipe dream?

For future reference you do not have to wait till an insurnace company door opens to go in and renew your insurance. IN fact most of them auto renew all you gotta do is call them up and pay them.

In our work parking garage we have a locked cage that's right next to the security office which is manned 24/7. It was really the perfect storm of bad luck that caused the theft and the heartbreak after it.


Keep your insured ALL the time guys, or else something like this will happen heh.

Exclamation

If you have not filed your taxes yet, you may be in luck...

Since the theft happened last year, you can claim the entire bike's estimated value as a total loss. My gsxr750 was stolen and I only had liability on it. I was able to claim it as a loss through my CPA and it raised my tax return quite a bit. It is not much extra paperwork.

Yep, I did that. It's only one more form. It sucked losing the bike, but claiming it as a loss helped a little on the return.

You might have to to present your own case (or press your own charges) b/c from the sound of it the case open right now is the city against the thief...not you against the thief.

UPDATE

Thiefs name: Jeremy Childs

Talked to HPD again, this time more specifically about the costs involved. He said that the District Attorney is going to contact me and we can discuss what the court requests in terms of restitution for my damages.

Also, he said the DA may require me to testify if this is the case- which is no problem for me.

He also mentioned that the guy may take a plea bargain and that would kind of screw my chances of getting anything without suing him personally. However, he did say the last time he talked to the guy he was vehemently stating his innocence and that he was just holding the stuff for a friend. He said he highly doubted he would take a plea bargain, so let's hope he doesn't!
