As much as it pains me to write this, the police said it would be a good idea...

My motorcycle was stolen on Friday, August 29th at 5:35 in the morning. It was taken out of the underground parking garage at Louisiana Oaks in St. Louis Park, Minnesota where I live. Someone got in and ripped off the lockset/ignition and hot-wired it and drove off. The only surveillance footage the apartment complex has is of the person (guessing male by the height on the bike) driving off on the bike through the garage door. They were wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, it had white writing across the back of the sweatshirt in 2 words but the camera wasn't clear enough to make out what it said. They were also wearing jeans and tennis shoes and had a dark color bag over their right shoulder. Now, about the bike...

It's a 2007 Honda CBR 600RR. It had just over 20,000 miles on it and was mostly white in color.

VIN is "JH2PC40037M011016"
LICENSE PLATE "53338MG".

I listed a full modification list below, but some of the most noticeable differences/mods are as follows:
- custom paint job (it's not the stock 07 pearl white paint scheme and is a one of a kind scheme)
- custom headlights (had audi LEDs with a halo around the HID projector, if the headlights are off, the inner projector glows red)
- rear subframe and heat sheild were painted black as well as the passenger pegs powder coated black
- rear passenger pegs had LEDs in them (2 strips of 10 facing the rear with running/break as the inside strip and the turn indicator amber were the outside strip as well as 5 facing the side that were also turn indicator and amber
- Akrapovic exhaust with a TST license plate mount putting the license plate up under the exhaust
- black Sato rearsets with a rear brake reservoir delete mounting the rear brake reservoir right behind the right rear set

If you see this bike or have any information on it, please call the St. Louis Park Police department in Minnesota immediately.

Here is the full mod list:
- Akrapovic Exhaust
- Vortex frame sliders
- Proton flushmount blinkers
- Tripage Pro Intergrated Taillight
- Tripage passenger peg LED install and black powder coating
- Tripage Cruise control (throttle lock on right side)
- TST Industries License Plate mount and lights
- The2Wheels brake and clutch levers (black with red adjusters)
- Corbin Seat (black)
- Vortex front sprocket
- Vortex rear sprocket (black)
- DID 520 Chain (black
- Galfor front Brake Pads
- Galfor rear Brake Pads
- Galfor Steal Braided front brake lines (clear smoked coating with silver banjo)
- Galfor Steal Braided rear brake lines (clear smoked coating with silver banjo)
- Power Comander V
- Sato Rearsets
- Custom Headlights from KT (55w 6000k HID projector lights that had audi LEDs with a halo around the HID projector, if the headlights are off, the inner projector glows red)
- Pair Valve block off plates
- Rear reservoir delete with Brembo Rear Brake Reservoir mounted by the right rearset
- Renthal Dual Compound grips (grey)
- K&N Air Filter
- Cox Racing Radiator Guard (black)
- Puig Racing windscreen (dark smoked)
- Tech Spec C3 Tank grip pads (black)
- Probolt Fairing and windscreen kit (black)
- Tripage 3rd eye LED upgrade
- Superbike Custom Fairing Kit (mostly white with black stripe down the middle and some stickers deleted - see pictures)

Thanks everyone. Yes, it was insured and I'm covered from theft. It's more a of a sentimental thing than anything. Plus I was almost "DONE" with it in terms of mods I wanted to do...

How does a second bike get stolen from the same place in such short time? Especially him being your buddy. If my friends bike got stolen and I had no choice but to keep mine outside I would have lo jack or an alarm installed the next day. I would also do late night strolls through the complex looking for suspicious people. I say this because I've had things stolen.

That being said, I really hope you catch the bastards.

So I'm about 2 weeks late in posting this, however I've recently moved out of that appartment complex to a townhouse with my own garage and much better security...

The bike was recovered 3 weeks ago... Late on Thursday October 16th I got a phone call from the police department that my bike had been recovered in a high speed police chase. They clocked the bike going 100 miles per hour in a 45 and then pursued the suspect. 15 squad cars were involved and speeds reached upwards of 140 mph and then the suspect ditched the bike at low speeds and took off on foot. However, criminals are usually pretty stupid and this is no exception... He left his cell phone strapped onto the bike OPEN TO HIS FACEBOOK page! His shoes also came off while he was running and the cops took them as well and got DNA off of them and it matched the suspects FB identity. The guy is a known fellon with a rap sheet of burglery and assault and the investigator said he is well on his way back to fedral prision.

Now onto the bike... This guy had it for over a month and a half and he put almost 2,000 miles on the bike. He went through and did many things to it to try to make it his own, I'd put up pictures, but I'm having issues with my phone right now that the pics are on. He wired in 2 DC power outlets, obviously screwed up the ignition (you were able to start the bike with a screw driver and he just taped a key to the top of it to make it look like it was normal), he took nail polish or really cheap paint and panted all over the fairings adding his own designs, it was wrecked up a little bit from the low speed crash including cracked fairings on the left side and a big scrape on the Akra exhaust, he also srewed up the wiring to the headlights and the proton blinkers and many other things.

After all was said and done, there was almost $7000 in damage and that was without even starting it up (we couldn't at the time, the batery was dead) so the bike was totaled out and I got a check for $9,600 (NADA value, $3000 max in accessories/aftermarket parts and tax title and liscence stuff as well minus my $500 deductable). I chose not to keep the salvaged bike because with a theft recovery and him having it for almost 2000 miles, I had no idea what he did to the engine, brakes, chain or other things and it was a better deal to just take the full amount instead of the salvage plus the remaining. If it was a crash of my own accord and I just laid it down vs someone else screwing with it for over a month, I would have easily kept it and built it back up and kept it, however with the theft it was just not worth it. I also didn't have the space for it.

So to wrap everything up, I did get my bike back, however it was still totalled out and I got a good chunk of money from Progressive, there is a warrant out for this guys arrest and I moved out of the appartment complex and into a townhouse.

Now to see what's next in terms of "toys" for me...
Thinking maybe taking a summer off from bikes and getting a 2010-2012 Audi S4, or getting another 07/08 600rr, or a 2012 1000rr, or a different bike all together, who knows... I have the winter to think on it! Don't worry, I'll still be active on here though, how else would I waste my time?!?!
