    Hi Everyone,

    I walked out to my bike this morning to head to work and unfortunately the worst had happened - someone had stolen my bike. The thing that REALLY pisses me off is that I had just bough her a month ago (cash) and... I did not have insurance. To make matters worse, my bike had been parked in the secure underground parking garage in my building and the thief's not only just stolen my bike, but also stolen my friend Shelly's 2007 green ZX6R as well... Sucks.

    I know the chances of getting her back are slim, but if you see my bike for sale on Craigs List, or out and about I would really appreciate it if you could let me know. I will upload a couple pics, but a couple key identifiers are a yoshimura exhaust, carbon fiber panels on the sides of the gas tank, a yoshimura sticker on the top right hand side of the windscreen (if you are sitting on the bike), and a dumonde tech sticker on the right side of the swing arm (again, if you were sitting on the bike). My friends bike is the green version of mine, also with a yoshimura exhaust. Thanks for you help friends.

    -Tyson

    p.s. - here is the flickr link to the pics I am uploading. http://www.flickr.com/photos/82792636@N02/7586344050/in/photostream

    I will keep an eye out as well. But yes, a plate number would be helpful. Where abouts was your bike at, so in case I'm in that area I can keep a watchful eye out.

    Ouch! With no insurance that's a pretty penny up in smoke. Best of luck getting it back.

    it's very interesting: there is a couple in Roseburg (Kirk and Shelly?) who have the same color scheme bikes (05-06 ZX6Rs). Blue (his), Green (her).

    I had a bike stolen back in 2006, it's the worst feeling in the world. Sorry to hear about the theft. I hope the catch the bastards, but I doubt they will. The cop told me when mine was stolen the recovery rate is pretty much hopeless:(. If you get it back or get a new one look into stated and motorcycle insurance, it's really affordable (like $300 a year for me) and the took really good care of me when mine was stolen. Best of luck in the recovery of the bikes. I will definately be on the look out for you.

    Alright, my plate number is 0c3380. Thanks for all your help guys, really wising I had gotten my shit together and taken out a policy right about now... stupid. They do have cameras, I'm working on seeing if i can get the footage and should have it by tomorrow. And that is a crazy coincidence, blue and green. They were good looking bikes.

    Did you have any sort of theft device on it, like a rotor lock or anything? I know if someone wants your bike bad enough that wouldn't stop them, but I'm just asking. I worry when mine is outside even with my rotor lock on it. But like I said, I'll keep an eye out. I put the plate number in my phone.

    Yeah unfortunately I didn't. Figured that parking it underground in a gated garage would be good enough. They cut out the ignition switch and managed to break the steering lock as well. Its scary that this can happen, makes me really angry. I would have payed the price of the bike just to catch the guys doing it... Thanks for keeping an eye out man, I really appreciate it.

    Hey man go to google alerts and create an alert for the bike (with year and model), VIN and its parts. This way, if your bike or its parts are posted online you will know. Alerts can be delivered each day. So sorry about your bike, i cant imagine the feeling.

    All thieves must be shot!!!

    Dudes, you really think the thieves are riding around locally with the license plates on???:tard:

    They are probably disassembled right now being parted out on ebay or/and craigs, probably NOT localy.

    The advent of internet sails is huge asset Godsend to scumbag car/bike thieves.
