stolen bike

Is it my imagination or does the bike theft seem to be a east coast problem? Every time I hear of a bike stolen it's been on the east coast, mostly the greater D.C. area. I want to make an app that will allow me to set off a small explosion on my bike if it's stolen Good luck finding your bike. Make sure you have insurance everyone!

I've been cruising Orlando and the area it was stolen for the past 3 hours on my dads old clapped out GS450T looking for my bike. its like looking for a needle in a haystack. And thanks for fixing that colemanfu! Honestly if someone had a nice EXC for around 3k id be very interested. (as soon as i save up my next 50 paychecks). Hell even an RXC for around 1k would be nice. Though during my search today I DID see a nice ATK 605. i nearly shit my pants when i first saw it I thought i had found my bike the white plastics and oversized tank looked very similar from the distance i saw it.

Just saw what i think to be a 650 ripping down magnolia downtown . White dude with a backpack no helmet no graphics on white plastics but I did notice something red on the tail , may have been the taillight may have been that red bag you have on yours . I was a good distance away so hard to tell much and he was hauling ass in traffic . I got to my truck an scoured the area but found nothing. Was just before 10 on Jackson and magnolia .

that matches the description of a guy who owns an ATK 605 that always parks on West Washington street. Did it look like this exact bike?

I leave for work in 2 hours and im going to be one street over from Jackson (church street). Ill try to leave early and just cruise around that area just incase it wasn't an ATK that you saw. Thanks for the tip!!

damn dude! Sorry to hear it. Not the best area for sure. I work from Eustis to St. Cloud, Dade city to Oviedo and every where in between, alwaaays on the road. I'll keep an eye out. I always pay special attention to any motorcycle as it is.

I wouldn't worry about the bike.... Its probably gone forever. One though to may e help try and find it is to list maintenance items for the bike on CraigsList. They will want to keep it running good for the woods. Buddy of mine was a parts guy at the local bike shop and his bike was stolen. The thief came in looking for a spark plug for it and didn't know the year etc. The thief showed him a picture and the owner walked into the back and called the cops. The cops took them over to the guys house and be got his bike back.

But anyways, be glad you're still alive and will heal up OK. You can always buy another bike.
