Check the interstate... those chicken strips indicate that the guy must still be in Florida....

Seriously though I know full well what it's like to have a bike gone... May the bastard and all those like him die in a fire

I'm sorry for hear that. But, it would be extremely helpful to have some more information on what went down because there are a lot of inmates who sell bikes.

Did the guy come up on foot, or was he dropped off? Did he have a friend in tow? Did your friend ask for a license to verify motorcycle endorsement?

It's good for us to know how the scams are working now so we can be prepared for these bad people.

Here's some helpful info for those who are going to sell: Take a picture of the vehicle the person pulls up in, especially the license plate. If the person walks up without a vehicle I'd be highly suspicious. Ask to see the drivers license to verify a Motorcycle Endorsement and take a picture of the ID. And if you're really paranoid make sure you have a buddy waiting in a vehicle that is watching everything unfold.
