Re: STOLEN BIKE 2016 HUSQVARNA FC 350 Reply to this Post

Guess its that time of the year! Walked in shop at 7:50am this morning... Look around and think where is the CZ400 I had setting there? Then discover back door been smashed open... But as soon as they came in they looked up and.. oh no! Busted!

Thankfully little town showed pic to constable, knew who it was, picked up the 13 yr old! Took him to where it was hidden, kid said he just wanted a dirt bike to ride with friends.. he couldn't start the old CZ and stashed it in the woods.

Cop calls sez got it come get it.. I said no.. have him push it back and put it where he found it! Now do I stick a first time 13 yr old with felony burglary or give him a second chance? Will see what is said when I talk to his father later...

Pic of that "Oh Crap" moment! Should have said that and walked away!

Glad you got that bike back. I wish I was so lucky. Hopefully it will turn up soon. I think its best the cops find them first before I do.

Ive been making my rounds to certain areas.

Holy Crap, Sorry to hear about your Husky Mike. Didn't know you could pry a garage door up like that; or how you could prevent it; damn.

Team Cramp,

Since you asked; I would think it's very important that the young man suffer consequences for his actions. If he busted your door, repair of said door is a start. If you don't want him hanging around doing that, he needs to at least pay for it or do enough community service to "pay" for his crime.

Getting off scott-free may be the worst thing you could do for him.

Yes, a felony conviction seems harsh at his age (we all did stupid stuff in the summer; though theft crosses a big line), but hopefully something can be officially done (comm service) on a lesser scale. Not sure the law allows for that without pressing harsher charges.

Kinda funny that he couldn't start the CZ. Karma would have it kick back on him to the point of losing about 4 inches of skin starting at the ankle.

I'm thinking that we need to build up a couple of ported 71 TM400s so the next time someone feels the need to procure a free dirt bike to ride we can accommodate them. They'd make great bait bikes. Make sure to leave the steering head loose so it's easy to turn, ream out the swingarm bushings so they move freely, and figure out a way to rig up electric start so we can be sure they can ride them.

Should be able to find those bikes within a mile of the theft every time. The trail of blood and poo should lead you to the body and the bike. And instant karma is so sweet.

Never mind me, I've only had 4 bikes stolen (and never recovered). I'm kinda over the being nice part.

Hope they find your bike Clements.

Mike,

So happy this kid got nabbed.

It's easy to arm chair quarterback, and it says something about your character that you are willing to even consider not pressing charges, talking to the father first, etc...

The question is whether or not to pin a felony on a first time offender 13 year old. My 2 cent opinion is that it's probably not the first time this young man has stolen - it's probably just the first time he has gotten caught stealing, or maybe the first time he has been caught stealing something this big. I say press charges and let him learn the hard way about accountability. He and his friends need to see the consequences of his actions. Let the word spread among their ranks that dirt bike owners are getting smart, and they are starting to catch thieves.

Again just my 2 cents. So happy to hear you are getting the bike back.

X 10 on what Pep said.
These kids now, never thought about working for a few bucks to buy a bike..... They just steal what they want and figure the owner has insurance. Mike, file charges on the little thief. He knew what he was doing from the word go.
Heck, man, I worked my tail off cutting yards to be able to buy a used dirt bike when I was a kid,
these morons now days just don't have the drive to want something bad enough to work for it.
Put him where he belongs, behind bars. Maybe by the time he gets out of juvie he will have learned a few things.

Re: STOLEN BIKE 2016 HUSQVARNA FC 350 Reply to this Post

I would find out who these "friends" of his are who ride dirt bikes. Are they thieves as well? This kid needs to be made an example of the consequences of bad behavior.
For a start, standing in front of the Bedias police station twirling a sign of some sort, admitting his behavior and/or punishment.
Well, that kind of restitution might be in violation of his civil rights.......right?raised eyebrow ......coffee ......
