So my brand new bike with less than 200 miles was stolen from my neighbor's carport last night. We have a tiny one-car garage here and with my wife's new Audi parked in there there's no room for the GS...just my tools, some shelves and the kid's bikes. I put her to bed last night and when we returned from my son's soccer game I noticed the bike was gone. Needless to say after confiming it hadn't been moved I was on the phone w/the Polizei and spent all afternoon down at the central station filing reports...the Germans are nothing if not thourough w/the paperwork. The thing is, the carport is blocked on all sides....he parks his truck and BMW "hoopty" commuter car on the side and his wife parks her SUV in front of the bikes (my bike was parked next to his). With the bike locked, the only way they could have gotten it out of there is to have lifted it over a short (~ 4 foot) fence into their back yard and then carried around to the side yard and over another fence. All this without waking up their 120# Rottweiler... WTF. Good thing I stayed up all night (in my garage!) putting on ~$850 worth of Touratech stuff 4 nights before it was stolen, huh? I'm insured but I'll still lose the deductable not to mention the work I put into the bike already...and who knows what this will do to my rates... Hell I just got my Certificate of Origin yesterday and it's not even titled yet! I really wanted an '09 too; I'm sure the '10s will be great bikes but I'm not hot to experiment w/the more complex valvetrain w/the new DOHC heads. I like proven stuff and almost never buy a new model car the 1st year they're out. I wanted exactly what I had...a new 2009 GS! It's been years since I've owned anything other than a dirt bike...my first strret bike in almost 17 years and after saving my pennies and doing all teh right things to be in a position to afford a bike thike this, I have it 2 weeks before some asshat who thinks he deserves teh bike more than me steals it! I know it's just a bike but I still feel violated. These asshats had to have been watching for this opportunity and now I don't feel as safe in what I thought was a great neighborhood. We have a lot of new construction here (we're in a new house too) so who knows if these were professional thieves or just opportunists in a truck. Kids looking for a joyride don't steal bikes like this though...My guess is that my baby's already in pieces or already has a new VIN. Sorry for the long rant y'all. I'm bouncing back and forth between being pissed as hell and so upset that I want to throw up... I'm sure I'll recover but right now I just feel adrift.
