Oh yeah they were "trying" to get his from little old Deer Park. Still I know some people that leave their doors unlocked up there. Never thought a bike would be a big target in such a small town.

I think all of you that said the cops don't/won't do anything owe them an apology. If you think things like this are bad in Spokane you should check the Seattle/Tacoma/SF/ newspapers. Thefts are rampant everywhere. We don't have an exclusive on it.

Glad you're getting your bike back. Tragic it costs you 300 bucks.

Thanks again eveyone! I got the bike home and put it in a hole in the shop so I wouldn't have to look at it for a while. I'll pull it out in the morning and get some pictures of the bike and damages up on here then.

As for my homeowners insurance?! The claims agent I spoke to was not helpful, I got in a big round and round with him about how my policy covers the structures, dwellings, and all my belongings and furnishings inside and out. But not motor vehicles. His words "that is what motorcycle insurance is for" I told him we are not required to insure motorcycles in Washington State, and he got all silent on me. Then I asked him "What about motorcycles I own, that are in my shop, that are being built or restored, but are not yet registered and therefore could not be insured by motorcycle insurance?" Oh he couldn't answer that one. I gave the guy a break and requested a copy of our policy. I told him he would most likely be hearing from me to either point out why they will be covering my loss since the bike was on my property, or to cancel the policy so I can get real homeowners insurance that will meet my needs.

Homeowners will never cover a motorcycle even if it is not licensed and under construction. Only thing homeowners will cover is gardening or maintenance equipment so riding lawnmowers, rotatillers ect. It will also cover golf carts if the soul purpose of use is for property maintenance.
Even an atv use for plowing is not covered.

Think that the statement I got on stored vehicles was something like- we can write a policy that covers for fire and theft.

Would you expect your homeowners to cover a stolen car? That's what auto insurance is for - sadly you have no leg to stand on - homeowners insurance will not cover your bike - Whether WA State requires insurance or not on bikes is totally irrevelant. You've gotten it back that much you can feel fortunate for.

I guess the lesson for all to be learned is insure your bike if you value it. I paid under 300 bucks a year to insure two 08 KTM's - my Superduke is a total since I hit a deer, so I am about to receive a check for 8 or 9K to make me whole. I think that estalishes that bike insurance is worth considering.

Why wouldn't you buy it ?

You are right. I do have my GSXR750 insured for theft, fire, someone cutting me off or me being stupid. Just trying to see if the homeowners would cover it since it was in the yard not on the street. Pictures are coming.

The bike is not to bad considering if they had not run out of gas it would most likely be parts and/or in another state. Whoever stole her did lube the chain, and used chain wax. I think I will put her back together and sell her. The bike needs to be repainted, the front right rotor needs to be replaced (it looks like they held the brake on for the entire joyride) need a new gas cap (they could only get the top half off and the core held strong. this is why they ran out of gas) The rims need to be blasted and re-powder-coated.

It still amazes me how many low lifes there are in this world - your bike stolen for no reason at all - I had a 30 year old mountain biike stolen recently in front of the Spokane Library - it was locked but they broke the lock - the bike wasn't worth 30 bucks but I like it and it did the job for me -

I couldn't believe some terd would steal that bike - they probably got tired of walking so they take the bike, ride it a couple of miles and dump in the weeds. Even the pawn shops wouldn't take it. Someone broke into our garage and stole 3 sets of piece of shit golf clubs for no reason - unbelievable a holes in this world - I do wish I could catch them in the act and have a pellet gun or worse - this kind of stuff makes even moderates crazy

I got one lowlife run out of our neighborhood. We had a bicycle stolen from our fenced in backyard last winter. The genius stole the bike right after a fresh snow fall. my son tried to track where the bike went, and I just followed the A-hole's footprints back to where he came from. It was Sunday and still early so the footprints were easy to follow. he burgled several cars from his house to mine. I took pictures of his footprints going around the cars as he checked and jimmied the doors, and the licence plates of the cars he burgled. When I found the house his tracks originated from I called the Leo's, after several calls they sent an officer. He told me property crimes were at the bottom of the list for them and there wasn't much they could do. I gave him all the info and after he left I started knocking on doors to let the people know where the A-hole who burgled their cars lives. I'm not sure exactly what happened but about 10 days later the house is boarded up and hazmat and no entry signs are on the doors.

check out www.spokanesucks.com it's a website rant on the crime rate and what's being done. I saw hundreds of paper signs with the URL on my way to work the other day. At first I laughed at the website then I was disturbed.

Safer than 2% of cities nationwide? WTF happened to this place?
