Well in my assumption, it was just some crack head. The story goes.....
Wednesday morning, around 4:30 am, my room mates dog was going nuts, I just thought they were playing with him since my room mate usually leaves by about 4:30. I'm now thinking that that's when the bike was stolen. The thief had the bike and the battery died on him. He pulled up to some random russian families home (I only mention their back ground to give you the full effect of how they were talking, kind of comical in a movie sense) and the thief pulled up into the russians driveway asking "Where's Scott!? I need to see Scott! Where is he??!!" Russian "I know no Scott my friend, you bumped my kia with your motorbike" the Thief "I need a jump, give me a jump!" Russian, "I have not cables to jump, I do not know what you mean"
So the thief jumped off the bike and told them he was going to the pizza place around the corner to get cables. Odd place for jumper cables right? "Ay yo! Can I get a large pepperoni with a side of jumper cables? And I want extra sauce on the side!" Well the guy took off, leaving his helmet, and was gone for about 30 minutes and the russian thought it just seemed really odd from the start. There was a sheriff deputy driving down the street from an other house, so the russian flagged him down. He ran the vin, realized it was stolen, and called me up. The bike was located literally about 4 blocks from my apartment, WIN!
The thief repainted the front end, so now it's all black, which was my intention from the start, he actually did a better job than I probably would have. So that's one good thing out of it. I'm not sure what he used on the ignition, but any key will work on it now. Fortunately for me, he didn't need gas cause that would have been another repair I would have had to make.
Other than that, the bike runs great! I'm guessing my stator is fried, If you look at my other pics in my gallery you can see why lol. I re-wired it and it was working fine, but I think when the "melt-down" happened it might have fried the stator in the process.
So today, I'm a happy camper. Like they say, if the crime isn't solved in the first 48hours your chances dwindle each hour after that. I just got lucky that I'm not the best at electrical work lmao!!!!
