    Hi, I'm Dave. I am new here and need some help...

    Hi, I am Dave. I am 47 and I live in Eastern, PA. I have been riding almost two years and I am very much into riding as a lifestyle, my outlet, my passion, my freedom! I had posted an ad on Craigslist and got a reply to it directing me here - here is why:
    I bought the bike of my dreams in April 2013 and sadly, she is gone ... Stolen, that is

    I know where, when, why, how and even who - but I can't prove a thing. I am quite sure it has been relocated to Lancaster, PA - or somewhere in the area. Likely being kept in the dark and being neglected. BUT, I am hopeful that they may bring her to a shop to try to trade or sell, or maybe to be serviced. Please keep an eye out and email me directly at ItzMeDave1(at)aol.com if you think you may have seen it. I just want my bike back... I am sure you can relate. Lots of details below...

    Oh, please feel free to share this anywhere that you think it may be helpful. Thank you!

    I'm sorry to hear about your bike, Dave. I've moved your thread to the Northeast regional forum; maybe someone in the area will recognize your bike.

    Did you notify the police so you at least have a report on file should you spot it?

    Yes....

    Yes, I have notified the police and about 100 bike shops within a 60 mile radius of where it disappeared from. Thank you... I am doing all I can. Looking for a new avenue each day to get the word out.

    Thank you CbadRider... and thanks for moving the post. Being new I wasn't sure where to go or what to do. I don't have much experience using forums like this.
