Please contact if you've seen it! I built this bike up from nothing, and it's been with me for a decade of my life.

Storage unit? Cover? Lock? Alarm? All it takes is 2 guys and a truck or van. So I'm guessing you did nothing to be proactive. Did you at least hang a sign on it saying steal me?

Though he may have gotten lax in the security, the fact that he's had it for a decade, presumably all in Cali (63k on it), implies that he knew to exercise some security.

Regardless, knowing the circumstances under which it was stolen, helps us all to take better precautions. So I'm curious myself.

We had one guy post up a "wanted" thread, and after questioning it became clear that they broke into the man's garage and walked off with the bike while he was away. So lock up your sh*t, even if it's sitting in your home's attached (or detatched) garage.

While it ain't worth risking one's freedom and livlihood, or life to steal a bike, nobody ever said a criminal had to be smart.
