I ordered this lock that goes through the sprocket. It's pretty tough. It has no visible shackle its all covered.

I just got home from picking it up. It's in my truck tied down. Truck locked. Backed up to my garage and a chain through the steel tie downs in my bed. I am too tired to unload it right now.

6 hours of driving today. 2 him from wv then 4 hours round trip to get the bike. I posted those from the restaurant after eating.

Little update. Got check from insurance company for quite a bit more than I invested into the stolen bike. The gave me 2475.26 for the bike. I paid myself back for the 2nd bike and used the "profit" to order a new exhaust system air filter jets skid plate and radiator guards and still had money left over so I went ahead and bought another set of off road tires. Going to find a second set of rims for it so I can swap out to true non dot tires when guys want to do all off road rides.

New bike isn't so clean now! Put over a 1000 miles on it of on road and off road miles on it. I have laid it down several times off road so far. Love it. May go ahead an order a 351cc big bore kit for it. Another 534 dollars.

Expect it to be slightly higher when you get the replacement bike. Like 400% higher.

The insurance Co's like taking your $$$ but get pissed when they gotta give some back..  The fact that someone stole your bike should not be held against you..  It wasn't your fault..  Some A-hole stole it..  It's HIS fault!  

 

I had a bad car wreck 5 years ago and our insurance skyrocketed for about 2 1/2 years..  It's back down now though..  I hate insurance companies but it's a necessary evil to have today..  

 

Now the price of health insurance, on the other hand has doubled whether you use it or not!!  Way to go big O!!

I wonder why! About the same situation here! A very large arsenal is too handy!

Very odd, a small gas can with a half gallon of mixed gas disappeared. But not the regular gas setting a few feet away.

Sounds like someone was desperate but not greedy. Like a neighbor who is down and out, had to use it, but was ashamed to ask?
Even so, sounds like its time to lock the rest up.

Maybe I would leave a gas can of linseed oil out for those in need.

I actually went over and checked the neighbor. It wasn't there. The most irritating part was that I noticed it when I wanted to use that can. It isn't the first time we got hit. But it is always little things.
