Stolen Bike

Today between 10-10:50 am my motorcycle was stolen from my work site of 9 years.

I dont really expect to recover it, but any one in So Cal, if you happen to hear or see anyone selling parts, I will offering cash for recovery.

Edit your link (starts with htt then http as well). If they keep those plastics, it should be easy to spot. Good luck.

Since you know roughly what time, go to businesses nearby to see if they have any vid cameras if yours doesn't, like BeaverPuncher said. I hate fckin' thieves. Good Luck.

Just saw video of the theft. Damn! Talk about your seasoned jerks. A white van pulls up along side my bike, sliding door side to the motorcycle. Sits for about 3 min, then you see the bike spin on the kickstand and get lifted into the side door and drive off as soon as the rear wheel clears the door. That was painful to see. No plate on van, no markings and the video is shot from a distance so very blurry. Waiting for the guys to cut me a copy of the video to give to the Sheriffs.

Damn bro I live here in Long Beach and I will DEFINITELY keep an eye out for that bike and parts... I had a CBR stolen from me a few years back that I still have trouble sleeping over GL with recovery and I hope your insurance policy is up to date

Remember, bike nights are Wednesday nights here (there is one on Crenshaw/120th and a few others) and stolen bikes sometimes turn up there also...


Thanks Uncle P!

Those guys are Pro's. One from Chicago got caught doing it here. The police interviewed him after the catch. They got 8 bikes in 1.5 days. They had a trailer at a hotel near the airport, filled it up and were leaving when an UC cop saw them boost the last bike near the mall. They have an unreal setup. They jack the bikes in a panel van, use a cell phone jammer in case the bike has a link GPS alarm and then they strip it on the way to the trailer, looking for GPS systems. Shove it in the trailer and go look for another.

Hate to say it, but that bike is long gone.

Doesn't seem like you're their first heist. I would recommend STAYING on eBay, craigslist, etc. looking for your parts wondering around. Even then, it'll be hard to get the 5-0 to actually take action towards it. Nevertheless, good luck man, we're rooting for you.
