The police called and told me a guy was arrested yesterday riding my motorcycle. He was on the Stony Brook college campus. It's unclear if he was a student or visitor.
The bike was impounded and is being held as evidence. I hope to get it back this week. I'm praying it wasn't damaged too badly. At the least the ignition wiring had to have been stripped because the thief didn't have a key.
They found the guy when a routine license-plate search reported the bike as stolen. What kind of half-wit steals a motor vehicle and doesn't change the license plate? They teach you that on the first day of Auto Theft 101.
Honestly, I'm relieved. I was starting to suffer from rider-withdrawal. It's is a real, debilitating ailment. Ask any biker.
I'm so glad it was found, and the perp caught.ReplyDelete
Lucky you're getting it back! It's like an early Halloween gift : PReplyDelete
Fantastic! Good to hear. I hope there is minimal damage as well.ReplyDelete
I just read the blog about it. Thank goodness it did not take long to find it and i hope the damage is minimal. A lot of bikes never get found here.ReplyDelete
I had abandoned hope. Stolen vehicles are rarely found here, too.Delete
Excellent news!hope its not too badly damaged.ReplyDelete
Great news!! Hope the damage is easy enough to fix and won't affect you too badly.ReplyDelete

Thank goodness it's been found. You must be relieved. It's horrible having things stolen. I hope it's repairable and that you'll soon be whizzing about on it again.ReplyDelete
That is so cool! Really, what were the chances you'd ever see it again? I mean, you live in NYC, right. And at least you know it's ride-able.ReplyDelete
