I don't know if this belongs on this particular section, but boy oh boy do I have a story to tell y'all!
Recently been going through a string of bad luck with my Bobber which include having my bike covered in a fine mist of white paint and running over roofing nails! Today on my day off I decide to go to my local Ducati/Triumph dealership and talk to the guys about my woes, purchase new tires(white walls! Huzzah!) and hang out before picking my son up from school. As we were trading stories, they regaled me with a recent theft that happened on January 4
As their story goes, on 4/1 a gentleman walked into the store with the intent to purchase a showroom, pinstriped custom Bobber they have had on display for a couple years. Everything clears, $1000 US down, guy rides off.
On 5/1 another gentleman comes in and tells them that his identity had been stolen, and his bank had told him he had purchased a brand new Triumph Bobber.
All is lost! Right? Well they did the right thing by contacting the Police and filing a report, as well as calling their insurance and starting the process of a claim. Meanwhile, my friend has been blowing up this guys phone! So now everybody is looking for this particular person.
Two whole days progress and things look bleak. 7/1 hits and the local Police give them a ring around 10am, says they have a motorcycle on a particular bad side of town with keys in ignition. No damage. Said thief parks it in front of old woman's house on 5/1 and leaves it there. After two days the woman calls the police and informs them a random motorcycle just showed up and nobody has come back.
Saw the Police report and contacts, so it's legit. An interesting story of pure luck that I figured everybody might enjoy. Hope y'all have a good day, or night!
