Re: My beauty was stolen!!
I know exactly how you feel. My wifes (which I had just bought) got stolen last year. Fortunately, it was recovered in 11 days, and very servicable. 2 pieces of shite were arrested, and got about 2.5 real years (that's including 1/2 time) and 1 caught $1400 restitution (for damage).
What I did:
If residential, make up flyers for a reward. (You can either use your personal info, or the LEO contact) Personally hand out, and post everywhere within 5 miles from location. If you're an HRCA member, they offer $1000 dollars reward for stolen vehicle recovery (free). Money is a great motivator for people to come forward with info (and for the less desirable contingent, it buys a lot of dope). I offered $500 (on the Kawi) and got results.
Hit the dealers and specialty shops with the flyers also (even the HD shops)- These guys don't like thieves either.
Keep an eye on the local salvage yards, and give them the flyers w/ engine and frame numbers.
If you have any site stickers (i.e. Fireblades.org, etc.) stickers on your bike, don't post your intentions or any info on that site.
Find out which Detective is handling your case, speak to him, and let him know your intentions, or what you've done. Trust me, this is worth it.
