What a sad start for my first post. My baby got stolen between 12/16 and 12/19 within my apartment premises [Summerwood Apartments at Saratoga Avenue, Apt 10G ... located at Santa Clara, California]. I am the second owner of this motorcycle and have really really loved it. I am astonished and awestruck how it got stolen. The apartment is a gated garage and it was parked way inside the carport garage with my car in front of it. [Probably in the next carport spot the car was not present and some jackass just rolled in his pickup truck to lift it away]. Handlelock was on and I had a kryptonite disc lock. Unfortunately I did not chain it to the pillar.
There has not been incidents of theft in my apartment premises [not that i know of]. I do own another motorcycle 2000 Kawasaki ZR7 and it is still there. The handle lock do not work and I just used to have the disc lock on it. No touches/scratches on it for 2 years. There are other motorcycles too in the same area and they all are untouched.
A fool I am, I did not have theft insurance covered on the gixxer neither did i have a security system. I never ever though that it can get stolen within a gated garage with out of visibility for folks passing by. The cops are useless bunch of folks and said they cannot help me much. I thought of doing a theft insurance, wait couple of weeks and call in to police and then call into insurance and claim it, but i felt it was unethical and backed off.
Please if anyone finds a clue, do email me at [email protected]
. Any pointers or clues by anyone leading to my motorcycle will be highly rewarded. I apologize if the moderators think that i should not do an advert, but i have been trying frantically posting everywhere to get any clues.

Yes, some folks would have seen this motorcycle on craigslist a month or 2 ago. I bought this from the previous owner on 11/20. He took off the "Lazy Penguin" sticker while selling to me.
