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.

A specific gear place for kids out of the UK. http://www.babybiker.com/

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.

But seriously by the looks of it it's a common place to park. I guess that makes it reasonable eh?

Dyer Ave median:
i park there most days. much nicer bikes there than mine; i'm not worried about mine getting stolen. there are some bikes there that are pretty clearly parked there 24/7. i still throw a disc lock on and make sure the steering column's locked.
i did get ticketed there once, some douche PEO tagged every bike there for "sidewalk". i fought it by mail and sent in a bunch of photos showing that it's not a sidewalk and never heard back; i think they thew away my letter. still shows as owing $ in the system.

Take off your plate and park anywhere:

i got towed on Broadway (commercial only) with my plate off. effing close to $500 and a half a day getting it out of hock. i'd maybe park somewhere if i could sneak my bike between vehicles, but i'm spooked to park anywhere illegal that a tow can access now if i'm gonna be there for more than 1/2 an hour or so :/

Let me clarify my previous statement. When I said park anywhere. I meant park anywhere within reason. I wouldn't park in front of St. Pats cathedral or anywhere obviously wrong. But like Schwartz said in between some cars down a side street.
