Not mine but a local guy I know who has a Pine Green 93 LT. They've been doing work at the complex he lives at and somebody left the security gate to the parking area open last night.

Poof!

WHO would steal a K11? I guess some thief who doesn't know what they are doing?

I can't figure out why someone wold steal it either unless they don't know what they're doing and think it's really valuable because it has a roundel on it.

Not that they're bad bikes of course but there aren't a ton of them around so you can't part it out on Craig's List or eBay without being caught pretty quickly.

Good news! Owner called me Friday night. The bike was in the parking area of a neary apartment complex. Residents complained to the manager there who eventually got it towed. Tow company ran the VIN and discovered it was stolen as the owner had reported it stolen to the popo.

So he gets a call from and goes to see his bike at the towing yard. All in one piece, uncrashed and undropped!

Not hotwired either so he thinks the spare key he'd left in the tank bag sitting on the bike (doh!) is how it was ridden off.

Was out of gas and battery dead but yesterday morning I went over and installed a new battery for him and it fired right up! Beemered

(This also kept him from replacing it with a bad relative like he'd planned, an R1150.)

Happy, if unexpected, ending. Very Happy
