    No pics, I,m on the road. Stock Blue and White colour scheme, remus exhaust, sargeant seat, aeroflow fairing.

    Serial numberWB10495A01ZE52361

    Hotel security camera shows it was stolen by a dark colour SUV Ford Explorer size, no plate visible unless the police can enhance it.

    I'll keep an eye on ebay parts

    What kind of trailer? Was the bike on the trailer? Enclosed or a flatbed? A description of the trailer might help also.

    One of the only ways I know to make a possitive out of this is to take the attitude that something worse was waiting for you down the road and you were stopped from continuing your trip for a good reason. That is the attitude I try to take when I get a speeding ticket so I won't get mad and do something stupid.

    You can replace your bike and trailer but you yourself cannot be replaced.

    Few things are more irritating than getting ripped off. Sorry your plans got screwed up.

    I live and work in the area so I'll keep my eyes open. I'm trying to figure out "trailer in a bag trailer". What does that mean?

    UPDATE

    My bike and trailer have been recovered by the CHP, both apparently in good condition. A local ADVRider member will hopefully be able to confirm for me tomorrow. The perp has confessed and is in jail and I WILL be pressing charges. Good work CHP

    If everything looks OK the adventure will continue.

    Ask the CHP if you could use the M-fer as a berm to test the set up on your bike!
