The bike was buried deep and covered in MY SIDE of a large storage bldg. Was last seen by the landlord on 9/27/20. Was discovered stolen on 10/3/20
This just COINCIDENTALLY (HA HA) went missing when the adjacent tenant was moving out with multiple box trucks. He ha... The trucks were backed in deep so the contents being loaded could not be viewed. 3/4 of a year to bead blast, engine build (10 min heat cycle only) all new plastics, graphics, all the org wire and hose retainers new. Nothing was skimped on. All the orginal safety decals and I could go on
Many Vitards have had the same happen. I'm gutted beyond belief. 5-0 is on the case and reward posted on craigslist. Any NEW YORKERS, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. Key distinctions are the yellow sidewall stickers and minuscule seat opening at rear on each side where black meets red. Thank you guys for possibly seeing my baby and a miracle happens and it is recovered

Can you get in touch with then tenants that was moving out? Was it them in the trucks or hired help. I would go straight to them.

Good luck, that is sickening.

You’re probably right, when my YZ 250 was lifted out of my garage in the next day or so the assholes across the street moved. He saw me washing it after a race on my driveway by two weeks before it’s too bad I only found this out after heavy investigation in about three weeks after it was gone. Really no thanks to the police had to do everything myself most police look at stolen dirt bikes like well you know insurance will cover it—that’s an insurance claim or whatever. so they’re not too worried about recovery. And I’m sure you didn’t have the bike insured for fire/theft ??

These things are like murders if you can’t find it in 48 hours you’ll never find it or it’ll be trashed beyond belief. I’d be hard investigating myself those people that moved out. Then if you locate or get eyes on the bike just go get it back.

Bike thefts in NYS are reaching epic proportions. I have been hearing about more off-road vehicles being stolen in the last month than I can ever remember.

10/6/2020 6:36 AM

Man I’m truly sorry to read this. I hope you can get it back

Thank you all. A dealer had a new one still in the crate. I dont want it. I want MY BIKE as it has my blood into the resto. I'm gutted to say the least. The mover DID have 20 somethings helping. The owner can only drive one van at a time. I believe that the owner pulled out and the "kids" went snooping and saw it, loaded the owners stuff and put my bike in last so they could stop and drop it and continue with the owners stuff. You guys are correct in the FIVE O really put dirt bike to the side or sweep it under the carpet.
I think my only hope is to spread this on as many social sites as possible.. I am miserable. Any helpful comments and even your sympathies ease my loss.
Thank all you guys for your support.
Mike

Same down in FL. I’m on the verge of buying a van just for the sole fact of not being seen with a bike visible while driving. My friend got his stolen and wound up finding it months later. He got the kid to talk on how their whole system works. It’s a lot more than just busting into random houses.

My friend in VA told me about the duct tape over the license plate at Budds creek during the national. That’s crazy.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

You are 20 years behind the UK... the expectation that a bike in a pickup 'will be fine' is long gone here. Plain van, no stickers, never practice where you live.

could you explain the 'sytem' ?

10/6/2020 7:53 AM

They see you traveling down the interstate and follow you. That’s a good one.


They friend you on Facebook and case your life.


They send a grunt to get it. Then the bike exchanged hands two or three times and gets moved to inner cities immediately.


Cleveland bikelife yo-yos usually test ride your shit. Leave with it. Put it on a plain rental Penske truck and take it to Atlanta....trade it around. Ride it. Trash it. Whatever. They’re not stupid. They’re just hustling people out of bikes.

They see you with a bike and follow you home, scope your house, record your address and pass it off in a group and it’s a free for all for whoever is first to hit the lick. They wait in gas station parking litany near the interstate because it’s the easiest way to find people coming home from riding. Bikes from the county over wind up here and bikes from our county wind up in that one.

That’s one group at least. When you get into more south Florida then it’s a small percentage of bike life goons and majority is an hour after your bike is stolen it’s in a crate on its way to South America.

Is the “bike life” kinda deal popular over there? Or is it more of tweakers jacking shit just to make a buck?

The system at Budds was the gooons troll the parking lot at the track and record license plate numbers. Then they take the list of numbers to a friend they have on the "inside" who can access the DMV database and give them addresses to go with the license plate. Now they know exactly where the guy with the nice bike they saw lives and they show up in the middle of the night to get it. They also know MD is a communist state with very restrictive gun laws so their chance of getting capped is low.

Oh dude, what a bummer. It makes me sick to my stomach knowing what work you had to go through, only to get that bike stolen. sad

Braaapin' aint easy.

10/6/2020 8:14 AM

Man I fucking hate thieves. Absolute scum of the earth. Sorry to hear this man, I hope you are able to get it back.

I see you posted a photo the of the vin, but you should also write it out. That way anyone searching the VIN will find it on this message board, and or whereever else you posted it. About 8 years ago, I was going to buy a Uber rare Honda rc45, but then I ran a quick google search on the VIN and sure enough, it was reported stolen some 14 years earlier, and popped up on an archived message board.

Thank you for the sympathy and putting the VIN spelled out and the FB link for CR'S. I think I will post my REWARD FOR ITS RETURN on the FB marketplace. I'm worried IT WILL BE TAKEN OUT OF STATE. If the detective finds and questions the "hire a helper" guys, hopefully they will crack and spill the beans. Otherwise I will have to start from scratch with a used one. Ahhhhhh.... . I'm going to try and stay positive. But we here all know the deal on the odds of getting it back

FGR01, copying the craigslist reward post to the FB marketplace now. That was a great heads up. And a wise move. Thank you my friend.

10/7/2020 7:46 AM

In the future, I intend to use square tube and mig weld so it cant be rolled. Will require a grinder or oxy/acetylene torch to move it. After this violation of my bike, I wont mind the extra work to move it. Its extreme but I can sleep better

|

10/7/2020 7:57 AM

I would think if it’s in a shared area, the owner should have someone present when anyone is moving things out.

|

10/8/2020 3:20 AM

I myself was in upstate NY seeing my lil princess granddaughter who at 11 months endured 2 open heart surgeries. The owner lives set back behind the bldg and is in her 80's. I wish I was around to give the thieves a 2nd thought about taking it knowing I was there

|

10/8/2020 3:41 AM

Well well. A mint 07CR250 was posted on FB marketplace. AND it's located in the same town as the old tenant. Fingers crossed for me guys. I forwarded the post to the detective.
I hope I dont get a let down but it's too COINCIDENTALLY the same looking bike with the stock pipe removed and a PC pipe (brand new) in its place. All your suggestions and support are nothing but helpful and help ease my anxiety.
