I’ve been looking on the ebays daily to see if anything pops up. AMy house trusts in Smith and Wesson, but I get your point. Trust me, I am doing my part. It's not in town, and I think it made the trip to Dallas. I've been checking the impound yards in a 250 mile radius every day and I've been contacting repair shops and motorcycle recyclers to ask if anyone has either tried to sell an '08 or brought in parts for an '08. Since I have more machines, I'm staying awake at night and sleeping after my wife gets home from work before she passes out so eyes are always open.
They assigned my case to an investigator today, but he seems to think I should have a suspect pool. You know, because I live in a small town. I get it, but I live right off of us 377. A major highway between fort worth and stephenville. That and everyone here already volunteered their camera footage and checked their neighborhood for it and it isn't in town. We are a close knit community and if it were here, it would have been returned by now and a beatdown would have been issued. I assure you.
Since his email seemed hopeless that the investigation would be fruitful I composed an email with pointers on how to find my bike. I also explained that it was probably the only '08 with 04-06 gytr cans on it and shared some pictures with diagrams I made showing the swingarm, bodywork and crankcase differences as well as pointing out the brake calipers changed.
Hopefully that information makes it to the right people and if it is in the country it can be found.
If it is in the metroplex, it's just a matter of time till they blow the engine and ditch it, so, it'll be impounded and I'll get a call.
Maybe they can wreck it doing a buck eighty and I can keep it in my back yard in memoriam. Who knows.
If any of you guys know anyone selling an 07-08 r1, '05 gsxr thou or something of that nature for not a whole lot of money, it looks like I'm in the market. All I ask is that it have a straight frame and that the wheels be trueish.
Anyhow, thanks again for everyone's well wishes and I appreciate it.
If you get board, help me look for the cans being sold on line or the rims or the engine.
I am sry to hear that dude i love my 06R1 i would flip out if that happened to me but i got full coverage so i would get at least something out of the deal
You're in Texas. I'm in Philly. Two completely different cultures. Two completely different ways of handling things. The way people handle sh!t here in Philly, 😬 - I don't think Texas want parts. I can't elaborate much further. Philly is damn near on par with Chicago this and last year. Not cool at all. Prayerfully the problems here are getting fixed.Any ideas how to proceed bud? I'm all ears.
