I drove out there and sure as shit it was my bike. Now for the hard part....waiting for the cops. Damn it took them 2 hours, but they eventual came and I got to take possesion of the bike. They took my garmin gps and weather antenna, the tool kit, and some spare parts in the bags. He must have lowsidied it as there was scrapes on the crash bars and bags, I snickered because there was a trace of blood on the right leg..:-)haha

Two hours for them to show up? WTF?

Report the lost Garmin

Tell Garmin the unit is stolen. They will stop any downloads...if their policy hasn't changed.

Ah, a happy ending...relatively speaking. Hey, was the bike left in some public place, abandoned by the dirtbag? Is there any chance they know who did it?...any leads? I too am mystified by the 2 hour delay. As a retired cop of over 30 years, I hate to admit it, but "jazzing" up your call for service can be a helpful ploy to insure rapid service. Here's what I mean. The cops are not usually getting your phone call directly, of course. A call taker is receiving the info and the call gets classified by the call taker and a computer...especially in a big city. I don't know what was in the initial conversation, but it sounds like it got a really low priority.

Now, I'm not really trying to promote lying and wild reporting to the police...but...we are talking about recovery of a stolen vehicle here, and your mention of possible suspects coming back to the scene, and the fact that you're armed and will handle the situation if the police don't arrive is a quite effective from my experience. The call taker will prioritize the call to a higher level, and the police will show up. Good move IMO. I'm very glad that your bike came out relatively unscathed.

could have went either way

it's hard to "stand out" while being dismantled in the garage IMHO .

Garmin should have a stolen GPS registry if they don't already ?

it would keep people from getting repairs and updates at least .


to bad the perp didn't return while you waited for 2 hours
In Arizona it's common for a lead thief to snatch a vehicle and leave it at a drop for a more disposable courier to transport to the final destination

I am glad it was found I wish there was some bone fragments with the blood LOL
