I optimistically borrowed a helmet and walked over to the Hall of Justice to get a release from the police department, then over to Auto Return where I forked over a couple hundred bucks to recover the bike.

Ever the optimist, when I got to the bike I stuck the key in the ignition and turned it. Nada. Survey of the damage: Snapped brake lever, cracked front fairing, fuel cap was pried loose and broken, ignition wires cut, both side panels were pried loose, and who knows what else. I pushed it back to MotoJava and asked the guys to take a look at it and see what else was damaged. It might be just a couple hundred bucks to fix it and leave the cosmetic stuff alone, or there might be structural/engine damage.

This is the bike that got stoled?

I'm glad you got it back. I think. I suppose insurance would have been nice.

Insurance? I had liability only on the bike-- it was only worth about a grand.

Good. Now you can have a paper bill to hand to the guy who lost it for you.

You are OWED!

They made you pay to recover your stolen bike? That seems like an awful rip-off by the police department...

Glad to hear that you got it back, though!
