So I made a stakeout yesterday from 5:55pm to about 6:15pm and had to go to class. But I told my dad about what you told me and I had him replace me and then I went off to class. Well, he didn't see him then, but today was a different story. My dad saw the guy you were talking about and got a little antsy. He saw the bike get into the intersection waiting for traffic so he could turn left like you said he would. When he saw him there, my dad got out into the turning lane waiting for the bike to come up. As soon as he came up on him, he got behind him.

I guess the guy on the bike thought something was up and made the first right he could, after the Burger King. My dad followed him. The guy on the bike then took off. My dad tried to keep up...but it's a 1000. It didn't take long for my dad to lose him, but the area he had turned into was our freaking neighborhood. No time before my bike was stolen had I ever seen a 1000 that looks just like mine come near our neighborhood. But anyway, when I had the bike, I still had driveout tags, but this bike had tags. Which could have been easily thrown on there from another bike. But my dad didn't get close enough to him to write the plates down. So that was all that happened.

This very well could be my bike...

(Note: this message got deleted somehow and but the jist of it was...)

Damn, that's fucked up. How much was the ticket? This bike has to be hot even if it isn't mine. But now he knows something is up and he'll probably lay low for a while now...ugh! Now I don't really know if there's anything we can do...

(Note: A few small conversation messages go by up to 07-17-04 where I don't hear from him...and then...today comes...aaaaand...)

Well, my dad ran into the guy on the bike finally today. He got close enough to get the tag number and said that the bike didn't have any scratches on it. Which easily could have been repaired/replaced. But he got the tag number and ran down to the police station to see who it comes back to. I found this all out through my mom when I got off work. So I don't know what happened after that yet.

(Note: Even better news after father returned.)

Damn, like 5 minutes after I posted the previous message, my dad came home. Although I didn't talk to him directly as he had to go right back out. But here's three VERY interesting things we found out:

1) The tag returned two bikes registered...I don't know what two bikes, didn't get to ask.
2) We got the address of the person who they're registered to. Don't know if the address is somewhere around here.
3) The police station offered MY DAD a job on the force.

Now that 3rd one came out of no where! They said he seemed intelligent enough and in good enough shape to be an officer of da law. I guess it helps that he's licenced to carry a gun and is ex-Navy. :D But this is some pretty good news so far. I'll have to get the address and run a map to see where the address shows. Then...it's time to scout for a few days and then attack...with backup of course. I only have 5 days to carry out my mission though as I'm going to Washington, DC next Tuesday. So...if you'd still like to help out with your "contacts" if the address is indeed around Millbranch...lemme know. And my word still stands if this is indeed my bike. You'll get some cheese after it's all over. ;)

*****************

_________Cliff Notes!___________
Guy has been riding around on a bike the looks exactly like mine, 2004 blue/white 1000. Rides regularly to the same location. The location happens to be minutes away from my house. Dad ran into him once and the guy speeds away. A guy that has been helping with this "case" ran into him and the guy litterally says "Fuck You!" (after being cool with the guy, racing him almost everyday on the interstate) and speeds away again. Dad runs into him again and gets the tag. Police runs the tag and returns two bikes registered. Got the address to the person it's registered to. Police offers my dad a job.

_________Cliff Notes!___________

So! We know the bike is illegal in some form since the tag showed two bikes registered somehow. We've now got an address. My dad has the support of the Po-Po. This guy is fucked. Lock n' load. :egrin :ar

if the po-po ran the plates, got 2 registrations, got address, why is your dad having to track them down and do their job for them?

Have fun dude, but this guy/kid sounds like one of those crazy "I don't give a f--k" bastards who would have a gun and shoot you or your dad, and none of us want to see that happen. Let the police take care of the rest, you did the leg work, let them finish it off.

report that to the cops man, f--k the vigilante justice. End up getting yourself or someone with you hurt. Be careful whatever it is you plan to do.

its crazy the guy has the balls to reside around your house with a stolen bike. If i stole a bike it would be painted ASAP and it wouldn't be one of my neighbors bikes. Oh well hopefully things work out well for ya!

We got a VIN number on the bike. Anyone have a current Car Fax account?

JS1GT75A232104900

What part of the VIN makes it a 2003? Up to A, mine matches. They say it's registered as a 2003. I haven't seen it myself, so I don't know if it's actually Blue/White or Blue/Black. We all know they made 2003 Blue/Black and not Blue/White. So...I dunno. Either way, the bike is probably hot anyway. Even if it isn't mine, maybe the bike has been reported stolen by someone else and they'll let me buy it for dirt cheap. :D

the 10th digit is the year and in this case the 3 shows it as being a 2003. the part between the j and the 3 should be just about the same on all 2003's, yamaha has a check digit and i think all do its the numbers after the 3 that are different for each bike.

Damn, this sounds like an episode of COPS. I love it. Hats off to you, Twinsen, many people can't do much of anything when thier vehicle gets stolen, I'm glad you have a lead and are taking it. Good luck and I hope you get your GSXR back!

How'd you get the VIN? Is this the VIN on the guy's bike who you're chasing, or from your bike? Are you saying that the VIN doesn't match your's, or that this is the VIN that corresponds to the plate?
