That is a great idea, thanks! Thanks for your support with this everyone.

Yeah man, thats lame as shit.

My insurance rates are high... but well worth it if I lay the bike down or it gets stolen.

Hope you get it back.

Any luck with yours? They almost stole mine, and finally we have our perpetrators on video. My entire security system (Dowco Cover, Heavy Chain, and Alarm) fended them off, if I didn't have it I probably would've been in the same predicament as you.

Good luck to you and your friends!

Talking Bike found!!
Can I get a drum roll please...! I just got the phone call that i've been wanting to get for the last two weeks and long story short my bike was FOUND and in GREAT condition! Hell yeah!The bike was recovered in yakima by the police at 2:04 am last night. Unfortunatly they didn't get the guy that did it... but regardless I'm pretty stoked.

Lessons learned:

1. Insure your bike
2. Get a lock
3. F*ck thieves

They cut out the ignition switch so I will have to replace that and also pay to get it out of impound but its a pretty small price to pay for getting my baby back. Thanks for all your support, and if this happens to you then don't lose hope cause you might just get lucky.

Unfortunately she did not.. but she was fully insured so its not a huge deal if we are unable to recover it. Defiantly helps narrow the search area though.

Wow, I live in Yakima, I'll make sure I pay extra attention when hearing about bikes stolen knowing that they could possibly be bringing them here...

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/8279263...in/photostream

Plate number on the Green ZX6R? I just saw one in the back of a shitty trailer.

So I drove down to Yakima this morning to pick it up and besides the ignition switch being cut out, which i can replace for $135, everything else is in perfect condition. They even washed it for me and put on a matching front seat to match the passenger. Nice guys...

The police said that they just found it outside of an apartment building there - on 55 w washington ave - and had it towed. The good news is there were prints on the bike so the police are following up on the investigation and hopefully we will catch the bastard that did it.
