Husaberg sumo stolen in BK

A guy who parks in the same garage as me (Vaxmoto) had his Husaberg FS650c stolen last night from his apt in Sunset Park.

It's a pretty rare bike, so I figured I'd throw this out there for him. If anyone hears/sees anything, shoot me a PM and I'll tell him.

That sucks. Any better description of the bike or pics? I live in the area and always keep an eye out and pics of stolen bikes on my phone in case I see one. I got a guy his KTM back after seeing an ad on craigslist then...there it was parked on smith street near my house a few hours later..

Starting a new job at 40th and Bway on Feb 11. I'll be commuting by train, but on the off chance I want to ride in to get a head start on a weekend trip, is there anywhere remotely convenient that wont cost an arm and a leg to park a bike near there?

From the post

So I know the chances of ever getting it back are slim but figured I would post up anyway since it's kind of a distinctive bike.
05 Husaberg FS650C was stolen from outside my apartment last night, looks like the bastards cut the chain and ran off with it. Had an Alien Motion lightweight battery and one of the front fork guards was cracked, besides that it was pretty stock.

Here is a pic, I will keep an eye on craigslist and eBay as well hopefully they are stupid enough to try and sell it or part it out.

I saved the pic in my phone. I really hate that shit. If I do see it I'll call the cops straight away. There should be a "stolen bike" thread especially in NYC. Last summer I remember hearing about bike after bike being robbed. Feel like it's becoming more rampant. Bad economy??

it's urban ghetto kids with no jobs and a rap sheet longer then the constitution. though it sucks to get a bike stolen, with the sumo some of the blame falls on the owner for street parking it, even with a chain those are very valuable and it only takes a few minutes with the angle grinder to make off with a 7+ thousand dollar bike. of course their going to steal it, the only question was when.

Makes a nice stunt bike. Try looking up in Washington Heights, I saw guys up there all the time, motocross bikes with no plates, wheelying up and down the street.

Lots of adult XS sizes will fit kids in that range.

Most off road helmets are available in child sizes. You may be able to get away with using an adult in XS but a child sized helmet is a better fit physically and lighter for the kid.
