That's amazing!! Congrats man. Was she in more or less good condition? Was anyone charged with the theft?

Three cheers for joeaverage!

Parked the bike in with my jeep and called the cops. I guess I thought the police would do more when they got there, but he just filled out the vehicle recovery form and handed it to me. The only question he asked was how did I find it. I told him I posted it on a motorcycle forum and someone saw it and posted.

The ADV community does another good turn
joeaverage, I owe you a beer or three Thank you, without your post my bike would still be gone.

Amazing ! ! ! ! !

Another ADVrider success story.

And, wow - seems like the police could have, (should have?) done more ? ? ?

I'm glad the bike was recovered

Luo Ba, your call made my day . As far as the cops go though- I think vehicle theft is way down on their priority list, like just below parking infractions. I just might take you up on that beer offer if you're ever in the West Seattle/White Center area feel free to call- don't worry, I prefer the cheap fizzy stuff. Cheers!

How awesome is this??!!


The only downside, as I see it, is that the thief isn't going to get taken off the street.

The plate was missing. We can only hope that the thief slapped it on another bike and will get caught with it.

I would have been tempted to disable it, perhaps by removing a battery cable, and then just sitting and watching... and hoping the thief would return.

In the old days they shot horse thieves. Not sayin' the perp should die, just bleed a little and hurt a lot.
