  2. did you check to see if he was motorcycle endorsed on the TDL? bet that
    wasn't his real name and the old Class M endorsement check helps on that
    name thing. No class M verification, no ridee the bikee.

    how did he get to your place from hooterville? walking, or some buddy
    bring him in a car? then buddy splits to go look for his pal to "make
    sure he's ok." gosh, what a nice consciencious friend to have like

    sorry to hear it, but you're likely screwed. :7

    we just had a discussion about test rides too. many don't allow it at
    all and others require major collateral left while the bike is out;
    still others say you got 30 minutes to bring it back unchanged after
    you've paid for it. if all that sounds tuff and unfriendly, well now
    you know. i'm guessing you had the bike advertised for sale and that's
    an expensive lesson. there's lots of crooks out there.

    sorry dood, hate to hear it happen to anyone. hope you find it, hope
    your insurance was up to date.

    Did you loan him a helmet as to not attract attention from the police?

    Real good example of why the "test ride" crap is not practiced.. These are
    not used cars we are talking about.. Hell .. you can have a motorcycle in
    the back of a pickup or trailer in three minutes or less and be across the
    state within a few short hours.. I don't like to hear about anyone having
    anything stolen.. Isn't it a co-incident that we discussed this very thing
    about "test rides" just a few days ago, and I got some flak, not much, from
    some of the posters over my position.. What goes around, comes around..
    Only one of the reasons why I don't LOAN out or allow anyone to test ride my
    motorcycle other than an occasional or special circumstance..

    Bill you are correct
    Motorcycles are such an easy item to dispose of. they can be painted in about
    30 to 45 minutes with a can of autozone spray car paint and primer and let
    sit for about 1 hour( I have done this with a Rat Bike of my own then desided
    the factory knew what they were doing after all) The paint job looks bad but
    it can be taken off with no problem if you dont remove the old paint and clear
    coat.They bike can be taken anywhere and parted out since the vin is only on a
    couple of places.
    hell I could put all the parts on ebay that dont have a vin number and almost
    come up with the money for a new bike.
    If you do this two or three time you could almost buy a new harley

    Now.. now.. With the money in my pocket to buy a Harley, I'd have the
    sharpest Vulcan in the state.. with plenty of bucks left over to make a long
    run and invite all my ol'wooly friends.. LOL.. I've never had the misfortune
    to have a bike stolen.. Been in some real snaky ol' places, especially
    across the border.. Somehow, I feel safer down there than I do in Dallas or
    Austin and especially Houston.. Maybe it is what I ride that discourages the
    thieves... (chuckle).. Could be the places I go, also.. I don't usually
    frequent the kind of places where I feel threatened.. Back in the younger
    days, it was necessary for me to fight my way out of quite a few of those
    joints.. Us ole folks gotta be a bit more cautious.. Some of my very good
    friends have gotten angry because I wouldn't turn them loose on my
    motorcycles.. Oh well.. so much for that.. huh.. Aside from the liability,
    you hit it on the head about how easy it is to take a bike down and move the
    parts.. or redo it enough to get the money and run.. Take care IceMan,
    regards to you and the missus..

    Man ain't that the truth. A buddy of mine at work had his first bike, a
    GSXR 750 stolen in front of Legacy Movie Theater in Plano. He went
    out of town and left it in the hands of another trust worthy rider and told
    him he could ride it. (Was probably a fun change from his SV650.;-)
    The guy watching the bike went with another guy riding a K1200, series
    BMW and they took the GSXR! The dumb girl in the ticket window
    didn't see anything!?!? Probably got thrown in the back of a truck
    or some one had a master key or something. The police told him the
    bike is most likely unrecoverable.

    I think it is pretty much an exercise in futility for law enforcement to put
    too much effort in recovering a motorcycle.. Seems to be pretty much an
    accident when they do recover.. Not too many solutions to the problem other
    than to be personally responsible and take precautions as much as you can..
    Too bad, huh ??
