Welcome to "low life" S. FL, immigration central. All it takes is a couple of gym rats to pick up a Sporty and toss it in the back of a van or pickup, so rotor/fork locks are worthless.

I'll keep an eye out for the bike, and I hope you have good insurance.

Sorry to hear that. You're probably pissed and sad at the same time. Any chance of it being returned ? Got Insurance? Hope it was just a couple of joy riders and it comes back soon.
You walkin' or taking the bus now?

Bummer...my bikes stay locked in the garage


Check Craig's list and the pawn shops too....that time of the year when people get desperate for quick cash $$$$

Buddy of mine moved to florida several years ago...While moving into the his new apartment he was warned by another guy to not leave his bike (gsxr 600) outside or it would be stolen...Told him bike theft was common even with disk locks and chains...They just cut the chain and pick the bike right up...only takes 4 guys a few seconds to do the job...

I will keep an eye out here on the west coast Naples/Ft myers area, but i am afraid DaytonaSporty is correct.
It probably is in a shipping container, heading out of port of Mijami as we speak.
Very sorry mon.

Man that sucks! I'll keep an eye out on the Gulf Coast. A cash purchase, presumably (hope it didn't cost too much and I really hope you recover it), if you could register it without insurance. However, if you're riding in South Florida, you need insurance – even more so during Snowbird Season. Heck, an old man just tried to run me off the road the other day while I was leaned over in a curve with a frikkin no-signal, no-looky lane change :censor It is not safe out there :frownthre Glad you "only" lost your Sporty.

Good news! I wonder why this was announced in a separate thread. If the bike was reported stolen, what about the possibility of dusting it for fingerprints?
