trentf,

You might also post it on "Bent Rider On Line" in the stolen section.
http://www.bentrideronline.com/messa...splay.php?f=44 As I got the URL I see you already did post it...but I'll just leave this reply incase other folks here don't know about that section for stolen bikes.

BTW, the person's auto or home insurance might cover it.

Bob
