Stolen 2006 gsxr 600 white Delray-Boca area

Hi guys, I never really post here but enjoy this forum greatly. I woke up this morning and my White 2006 suzuki gsxr600 was stolen :( I filed a police report but thought that putting the message out there could be helpful as well. I included a link to the pic of the bike, but it had the rear seat on when it was stolen. I am located by Delray Beach and Boca Raton and would really appreciate if you guys could keep your eyes open. Let me know if I should include anymore details about the bike as I am just saddened and can't think of what else I should include....

2006 Gsxr

Sad that it's unsafe to leave a sport bike outside in these areas. Too many crews out stealing them. Hopefully you can push your insurance company to reimburse you for your loss quickly Often they won;t process the claim for 30 days to give the police time to trip over something and find the bike.

Thieves obviously aren't the brightest but is stealing really worth your life. I just don't see how people don't think sometimes. There's people out there that would kill over something like that. I would beat the person senseless over my bike, no hesitation..

Sorry about this man. Wish you the best and hope you get your bike back.

When they have nothing to lose it doesn't matter to them. They get their next high and that's all that matters. Or maybe they can't get a real job because they are a felon or something

It's really a bigger problem as to people getting off so easily, provided for by the government, rehabilitation processes, and motivation to be something. Most people would choose to be something given the opportunity. They are so deep and need rehab that it's almost impossible to get out sometimes

Consider that it might be more of a professional venture with an efficient crew who scout and remove these bikes literally under the owners nose. Then they part them out. Keep your eye on ebay - you never know, especially if you have a unique combination of aftermarket parts.

The price of used parts these days in unreal.

Even if they consider themselves professional thieves they "have nothing to lose already" they are in that deep and don't care if they spend 2 years in jail. Normally drugs are involved.

Granted there are some pretty big operations going on but they do the buying hot bikes and parting out. The thieves are different normally.

That is a very interesting perspective. You are absolutely right that drugs are frequently involved, but that may just be part of the culture, not necessarily the driving motivation. Like you and I sharing a beer. Criminals have established operating procedures, a culture, a belief system, and a code of conduct. It is just not one that matches up with ours, but they have them.

I am not glorifying criminals, just the opposite. Consider that "good" criminals do not get caught - they don't necessarily want to go to jail nor do they always have "nothing left to lose". They are simply willing to exchange the risk of losing their freedom - which may also be a right of passage for them (that's another whole discussion)- for gain. Unless you are independently wealthy. you have a day job like me. We do that every day - exchange our time and ability for gain - in this case money. Maybe bitcoin. Regardless, their success depends on understanding and evaluating, sometimes in split second timing, a complex set of variables then, in this case, executing a very physically demanding and time sensitive act...quietly. Think about it, this poor owner woke up in the morning and the bike was gone. No warning, no trace and no witnesses (at least not yet). That is not something a drugged up junkie can pull off by him/herself.

I know this is a strange idea - it had me scratching my head for a while - but these people live in a societal system, different than ours, but a system none the less. Think about what it takes to exchange the bike for the other things they want. It may involve several levels of trade. It requires contacts and specialized knowledge that you and I don't have. At least, I don't have. Run through the process in your head and I think you will conclude this was not a random crime of opportunity. At the very least they (it is likely there was more than one person) were out looking and probably looking for a bike, if not that bike. It behooves all of us to do what we can to "de-select" ourselves as targets - make them chose someone/something else.

Here's what concerns me - I believe that we discount, marginalize or ignore criminals at our own peril.

The preceding is just my opinion. I am not a cop or military, just an average guy. YMMV

1) Not all druggies are junkies. There are plenty of druggies that are really smart and still live the day to day life unnoticed.

2) It takes almost nothing to find a chop shop that you sell the bike to on the cheap and let them part it out. The thief is in it for the quick turn around. Granted there is a thief somewhere doing it all on his own

3) I never said it was random. Definitely targeted. I was just talking to the people that would do it.

I used to know a couple of guys that used to rent u haul trucks to go steal bikes and they would use them to practice stunts....they all had at least two bikes fully stunted out. One of them is now dead, the other one lost everything due to addiction. What goes around comes around. In the end he will get his, God works it out for us!!
