What does everyone think of a stolen bike forum. It would be dedicated only to stolen bikes. If you hear of a stolen bike or if your bike gets stolen you could post it here with photos and contact information. We have a really large network of people and it seems like this would be really helpfull in recovering someones pride and joy (of course, you would contact your local authorities if you spot a stolen bike ;) ).

Can't see a single reason why not.....

I'd say you have a winner with that suggestion!

Stuff gets stolen in Reno and winds up as parts on Craig's list in San Francisco.
Pictures of the bike posted here would help identify those parts being sold in a different town. If it works even once, it would be worth it.

Like Dabronco said..."If it only works once, it's worth it". Good idea.

If and when a bike is stolen list all the particulars: time, place, any unique distinctions like a scratch, blemish, trim, etc., etc.

Time will be of the essence because it takes no time for a bike to be torn down and parted out.

Excellent idea.

Dave

P.S. I pray that if my bike gets lifted that the LEOs find the thieves before I do.

Excellent idea, that is how communication between people can be used to an advantage. I know my friend would enjoy it because his bike was stolen not too long ago.

I'm all for additional resources to recover stolen bikes. Glad to hear it's going to be set up.

Good idea but I'm curious of whether there will be any posts. Are there many Sportsters stolen? Will they be members here if so?

I like the idea. If it brought one bike home it would make it worthwhile.

I kinda planned for it to be if your bike, a buddy's bike, a buddy of a buddy's bike, etc. gets stolen. No matter what kind of bike it is.

I still don't think there will be a huge number of posts, but at least there is a place where they can get posted.

It would also be nice to know if the bike gets recovered. :clap
